In the 1950s, leading brands began developing basic audience personas like “moms” and “teens” using information like age, gender and household income in attempt to reach consumers with more relevant and timely marketing. But marketing to today’s connected consumers requires a lot more information than age and gender.

As modern consumers share real-time insight into their relationships, hobbies and interests across social and mobile channels, they are defying consumer stereotypes and demanding personalized experiences.

Leading brands are developing strategies to understand and segment their audiences based on a number of influential, actionable and behavioral attributes. In fact, marketers claim that segmentation is the third most effective method for improving conversion rates (Monetate).
