Have you ever ordered something new off the menu, just to be wildly disappointed with what the waiter brings out? After all that anticipation, you’ve got a bad taste in your mouth and shattered expectations. You’ve wasted your money. Your rare night out is a wash. And you’re still hungry. Ineffective ads conjure the same empty disappointment. Budget gone. Time lost. Goals still unmet. In the decades Tunnl’s team has collectively spent developing and analyzing cutting-edge microtargeting techniques for advertisers in public affairs, issue advocacy, and brand marketing, we’ve identified one single ingredient that’s critical to planning a satisfying ad campaign: audience intelligence. We’ll define what audience intelligence is, why it matters, and how you can access audience intelligence to start improving your campaign results fast.
Advocating for your initiatives with Congress is like trying to get one person’s attention in a sold-out stadium of pushing, screaming, single-minded others. Unless you’re on stage, you’ll be fighting for any scrap of attention. Ahead of a recess, like the one quickly coming up, is your prime opportunity to win votes and sway opinions on critical issues getting voted on this summer and later in the year. But with so many others seeing the same opportunity, how do you put your message center stage and get Congress to listen? You use the right audience. Before they created Tunnl, our founders spent decades building data-driven media strategies for public affairs and issue advocacy campaigns, discovering how to achieve targeted reach at scale. And now, Tunnl equips public affairs and issue advocacy advertisers with the issue-based audience insights they need to get their campaigns in front of the right people in the most efficient way possible. We offer several prebuilt audiences to connect you with the voters influencing Congress on top-of-mind issues in the weeks ahead. They can be analyzed in our platform instantly, for free, and sent directly to ad platforms at the click of a button. With these audiences, your ad campaigns will be ready to go live in front of your target audience in time to make an impact in Congress.
The cannabis market is getting crowded, and ad space is particularly saturated during the month of April. And it's no surprise why: Recreational marijuana is legal in 21 states, plus Guam and Washington, D.C. It’s entirely legal for medical use in 38 states, with a few more locations allowing CBD oil. And the U.S. marijuana industry is valued at $13.2 billion. The tides are changing, and Tunnl’s keeping tabs on how individuals feel about marijuana. With several surveys that poll thousands of voters and consumers, we maintain billions of rows of data on pressing issues that are always up-to-date to inform our prebuilt audiences and premium audiences. And we have three marijuana audiences to help you cut through the competition and connect with your audience instead of burning your ad dollars.
You’re in the grocery store, minding your own business, perusing the produce. The intercom crackles on. They’re paging one shopper. It’s a name you’ve never heard. You go back to squeezing avocados and trying to find the greenest bananas. That “this has nothing to do with me” feeling is exactly what your ads will elicit if you target them too broadly. The right person may see and acknowledge your message because it’s meant for them. But what about all the other people you net in the process? Your ads are a more expensive intercom than the one at the grocery store. With much higher stakes, you need to know when and how to target local audiences or lean on regional marketing. Tunnl’s leadership has spent decades revolutionizing the world of microtargeting so advertisers like you can reach the people invested in their message more easily - without wasting ad spend on audiences who don’t care. But when is it right to take your targeted advertising to the local level? Let’s lay out the opportunities in national and local campaigns and explain the elements of a successful regional marketing effort, so you’re ready to pick and plan your strategy accordingly.
Women’s History Month has begun. And while the month-long celebration is dedicated to embracing the hard work of the world’s women, it began as recognizing the often-overlooked contributions of women throughout history. Are you overlooking opportunities to connect with women in your campaigns? Tunnl audiences have enabled hundreds of advertisers to deliver their ads to the right people and maximize their message’s impact. But the demographic split of an audience can come as a surprise. Time and time again, our data has affirmed the power and influence women have in politics, commerce, and finance. In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’re spotlighting six of our prebuilt audiences that embrace women’s value and what they really care about.
