The Leading Advertising Network for CPG


Personalization is the buzzword of the year. You hear it all the time. Your clients are asking for it. In fact, they’re demanding it. But, how do you personalize at a large enough scale to move the volume your big CPG clients need? How do you know what’s working, not just by impressions or clicks? How do you know which consumers to target and why? You start with data and CPG expertise — lots of it! Only Catalina has two years of purchase history on over 260 million CPG shoppers. That means we know what they bought, when they bought it, where they got it and what they’re going to need next. Partnering with Catalina to drive advertising and promotions for your CPG clients is not only a safe bet, it’s the smart choice.

Personalized digital and mobile advertising — at scale

Digital Advertising from Catalina targets consumers based on their known purchases and affinity for a particular brand or category—the very same consumers most important for growing your client’s franchise. Targeting consumers in this way helps deliver a higher Return On Advertising Spend (ROAS) and minimize the waste associated with demographics-based advertising.

Utilizing our personalized digital media networks, and leveraging two years of shopper purchase history, we target equity messages to consumers based on their purchase preferences. Our media networks include mobile, online, and in-store, which enable us to reach and influence consumers at each stage of the awareness cycle.

Consumers appreciate our personalized advertising messages because they’re relevant and specific to their needs and wants. As a result, our exposure rate to your target audience is much higher compared to demographics-based targeting, resulting in improved awareness and increased brand equity.

Death of Demographics

Catalina research shows that demographic targeting is highly inefficient. “On average, brands delivered nearly two-thirds of their exposures (64 percent) to households that accounted for just two percent of the average brand’s sales volume.” In contrast, our behavioral ad targeting system targets consumers with a known purchase or affinity to a particular brand or category.” (Source: Deconstructing Demographics Study)
