Before I answer that question, let’s quickly de-jargon and explain what an affinity audience is!

An affinity audience broadly groups people based on general interests. It somewhat matches media buying audiences for broad media like TV, and so it is best used by marketers who are looking to scale broadly, but still target to some degree.

Affinity audiences are broader than In-Market / Intent audiences (those ones are a way to laser-focus on particular audiences who are researching or purchasing specific products or services) and focus more on someone’s interests, or what groups they like to hang out in.

Custom Affinity audiences are more specific than standard affinity audiences, but still broader than In-Market / Intent Audiences. They fill the gap between these two targeting methods.

They are like a “similar” audience, or a niche group.

While a Custom Intent audience will narrowly target someone who has been to a particular URL, or searched for specific keywords, a custom affinity audience for the same URLs and keywords will target users who have been to URLs and typed keywords “similar” to the ones you targeted.

Custom affinity audiences are really helpful for broadening custom intent and in-market audiences when you find a really effective audience but it is too small to scale.

For example, if you have a list of competitor websites in a Custom Intent audience, targeting these might get you a few impressions a day. But if you have a list of competitor websites in a Custom Affinity audience, you’ll get a broader audience, who might not have gone to those exact websites, but have been to other websites very similar.

Using Custom Affinity audiences you can target interests (based on keywords), URLs, Places and Apps.

Pro Tip – whenever you create a custom intent audience, pair it with a Custom Affinity audience for exactly the same terms to broaden a little from the very narrow targeting offered by Custom Intent.

Our main purpose for generating these reports is about findings out information that will curb our strategy. The Audience Engagement Report provided us with new findings about our audience. We implemented new marketing elements based on those findings and they have increased sales.

I recently worked with Petra to improve my understanding of Google Tag Manager.

Petra not only provided a solid overview of GTM set up and event tracking, she also provided many tips on best practice, and answered the questions that I didn't even know to ask!

Petra is patient, fun to work with, and her analytical programming mind is hell bent on finding the BEST solution to any data, analytics or tracking problem.

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.
