Understanding the report
- The aim of the report is to help you find high overlapping segments. Finding unexpected overlap can help inform the building of new, high-performance segments and can also provide key insights into your audiences and their interests.
- Overlaps work in percentages, the higher the percentage, the higher the overlap.
- Hovering over the different bars shows you the number of uniques in each Comparison Segment.
I am looking to proactively go out and sell an 'auto' segment and I want to understand a bit about my audience. To do this, I filter by my Auto Intenders segment. From my results I can see that
- Auto Intenders overlap highly with my Landlords audience (83%) and are likely to be earning over £40k (88%)
