A Beginners Guide to the Audience Town Platform

First, what is a consumer analytics platform?

A consumer analytics platform is a tool or software solution that helps businesses gather, process, analyze, and interpret data related to consumer behavior and preferences. These platforms leverage various data sources, including customer interactions, transactions, social media, and other online and offline channels, to provide valuable insights for businesses.

Consumer analytics platforms are valuable for businesses looking to enhance customer experiences, optimize marketing strategies, and make data-driven decisions. These tools are particularly crucial in the modern business landscape, where customer expectations are high and competition is fierce.

How do our customers use this data?

Use case 1: Make the most of your marketing budget by targeting the right leads.

Our customers find out in real time if their site traffic matches who they want to be selling to. If not, they pivot their marketing communications and ad targeting for a better ROI.

  • One of our home builder clients discovered that many visitors to their site are NOT actually in-market to buy a home based on their financial health, net worth, and other factors. Yet, there were many in-market buyers in their target demographic living in their region. This information drove them to pivot their marketing to target more qualified leads in the area.
  • Another client found out that while they were seeking to attract families, most visitors to their site were couples with pets, but no kids. This gave them valuable information about the local market they couldn’t have known otherwise, and they were able to aim their communications directly to young couples and what they are looking for in a home.

Use case 2: Be a change agent within your organization.

Our customers are ambitious marketers who continually evolve their organizations to have a more data driven and customer-centric approach. They use Audience Town’s easy CSV downloads and graphic charts to communicate clearly and effectively, internally.

  • One of our clients finally convinced her boss that marketing is important beyond balloons and open houses by educating the leadership team on the importance of data over “hunch” based marketing.
  • Another client consistently delivers winning presentations amplified with audience Town’s  site traffic metrics, analysis, and charts, bringing the company leadership on the journey to better marketing.

What are some alternatives to Audience Town?

Trick question, there really aren’t any. While no other platform offers consumer analytics for real estate, here’s an idea of how we fit in:

  • Google Analytics
    The basics in analytics across industries, Google tells you what is happening on your website and has no real-estate-specific features. Google provides little support, and can do a lot with a full time highly paid data analyst but is very basic for a regular user.
  • Real Estate Tools
    Existing tools are focused on the where and what in real estate, but none deliver on who, and when.
  • Audience Town
    Great in concert with other tools or on its own, our audience intelligence platform is a whole new conversation — analytics that understand WHO is moving and WHEN based on human behavior trends predicted by life events and other factors.
