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.

Ian Gale - Sleepwise Clinic

Petra was instrumental in pulling all our clinic's web analytics into one easy to read, dynamic report that's accessible to me at any time, and works with our EXACT booking system.

This has allowed me to see, at a glance, what marketing initiatives are working, need tweaking, or changing altogether, saving me both time and money. I can't recommend her or her analytic services enough.

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.

Kiley Hay Baby Carriers Australia

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.
