Location intelligence for the marketing sector


Our geographic expertise can add depth to any marketing campaign from identifying an initial audience, through to evaluating a campaign and mapping new audience trends. Here are some examples of how we help marketing teams, agencies, consultants, and their clients benefit from location intelligence:

Target your campaign

From a simple travel-time radius around a store, to a complete geodemographic and location analysis, we can give you the best chance of targeting campaign activity at the audience with the highest propensity to respond.

  • Distance or travel time radii around stores, outlets, agents or venues
  • Geodemographic analysis and modelling to identify audiences with a high propensity to respond
  • PAF data to enrich direct mail or customer databases
  • Postcode sector, unit or detailed area maps for local agents

Personalise your message

We can help you to identify and understand your audience using geodemographic modelling. In addition we can make your campaign messaging more effective by;

  • Creating custom maps of a prospect’s closest store or service centre
  • Identifying the closest rep or calculating drive times
  • Adding detailed profile data to basic address or area data

Measure and share success

Our location data expertise allows us to effectively evaluate the success of campaigns – even those that were targeted locally, rather than at named individuals.

  • Create custom location tools for intuitive customer questionnaires
  • Measure promotion visibility of display or outdoor advertising
  • Share, map, and present results either as high quality print maps, or via our online collaboration tools

Build an audience profile from your successes

Our purpose-built geodemographic data, P2 People & Places integrates seamlessly with our mapping tools allowing us to use location and demographics to create promising new audiences from incomplete campaign data;

  • Hot spot and trend analysis of purchases within an area
  • Profiling of respondent data or enriching a customer database
  • Creating a target profile from respondents and identifying other locations with high numbers of these people
