Behavioral Targeting

What is Behavioral Targeting?

Behavioral targeting is a method of advertising that targets consumers based on their online and offline behavior. Online behavioral targeting is made possible by the use of cookies. When a consumer visits a site that has an advertisement, a cookie is sent to the computer and tracks future browsing behavior allowing marketers to target their advertising more accurately. For example, if someone visits a tool blog, he or she may be targeted with advertisements from a recently visited tool e-commerce site. Offline behavioral targeting is possible by way of mobile location technology. If a consumer opts into location-based services on an app on their phone, this information may be used to reach consumers based on their real-time location. For example, targeting a consumer with a coupon when they are within a half a mile radius of a particular store.
