Understanding How a Data Management Program Supports Your Marketing Effort

The point of allocating such a large share of the marketing budget to digital advertising is to connect with the right consumer demographics and increase the odds of adding to your customer base. In order to make the most of the information you are constantly collecting, there must be a means of tracking and organizing data. One of the most effective ways to arrange that data is to invest in a data management program.

What is a Data Management Program?

This type of software program makes it possible to collect and structure several different types of data so that it can be retrieved whenever the need arises. Unlike other platforms devoted to specific types of data, a DMP puts you in charge of which classes of information you want to keep handy.

Think of it as your own private data warehouse complete with sections to neatly store anything that you can pull and combine with other elements for a specific purpose. There is no need to extract information from several different databases in order to build some type of advertising. Everything you need is housed in that one program.

Targeting Primary and Secondary Audiences

Many users see data management programs as ways to massage data for use in targeting a primary consumer demographic. In other words, you are able to house elements that appeal to the group of customers who are most likely to be interested in the goods and services you have to offer. What is sometimes overlooked is how a DMP aids in reaching out to secondary audiences.

Perhaps the demographic that is most likely to want your products is middle-income consumers living in the suburbs and who are between the ages of 30 to 40. The right DMP makes it easy to always have plenty of graphics, statistics, and other essentials that helps you build ads and other advertising copy that’s relevant to that audience. What it will also do is help you reach out to what you’ve identified as a secondary audience of people. Maybe that demographic is people in the 50-60 age range who could use what you sell as another way to build more resources for retirement.

Preserving Historic Data

Consider how television commercials from times past are sometimes recycle for new campaigns.  Commercials that generated a lot of positive feedback from consumers have been brought back into circulation years or even decades after the original run. Typically there is a minimum of updating necessary but the overall result is advertising that brings back fond memories while also attracting new consumers.

The same can be done with your digital marketing efforts. When you create ads that consumers obviously love, file them away in your DMP after that first run. You could find them to be helpful in a future campaign.

DMP With a Programmatic Element

Have you thought about how the right DMP could enhance your efforts at programmatic advertising? With resources that can be deployed with ease, you will find it much easier to identify and bid on ad space found on the right web pages and social media. You can automate the process and save even more time and money without compromising the integrity of the marketing effort.

All it takes is using the right data management platform in tandem with a programmatic marketing platform that helps you determine what ads to use in order to reach out to each of the targeted consumer groups you desire. A digital marketing expert can show you how to integrate the two resources and create a powerhouse solution for your advertising and marketing effort.
