Telstra uses Near’s flagship product, Allspark, to create new audience segments based on customers or those of competitors. Allspark allows Telstra to understand how different audiences behave around physical stores and allows Telstra to reach out to them via mobile marketing messages. Telstra can then evaluate the effectiveness of the messaging based on the behaviour of the customers who have been exposed.
Allspark gives you instant access to advanced audience curation and marketing capabilities. You can curate diverse audiences across geographies based on large-scale real-world data sets such as home/work location, brand affinity, geo-radius and many more. In addition to unique audience insights, you can visualize your audience to notice trends through the use of PlaceMatrix, Near’s proprietary repository of building footprints. Pre-integrations with TTD, Google Marketing Platform and more allow you to activate audiences in the marketing platform of your choice seamlessly in real-time.
