How is my audience segmented

nci

News Consumer Insights segments your audience based on how often they visit your site across a 30 day period.

  • Casual Readers are your newest audiences, visit your site once
  • Loyal Readers visit your site 2-14 times
  • Brand Lovers visit your site 15+ times

Together, these three segments make up your funnel. The end goal is to move readers across the funnel – turn the casual readers into brand lovers.

Not all audiences behave the same way. Loyal Readers and Brand Lovers only make up about 20% of a publisher’s audience, but make up 80% of the total pageviews. In other words, focusing on 20% of your audience can give you 80% of your results.

Understand your audiences so you can tailor your audience strategy, select the audiences to focus on, and allocate resources accordingly.
