How Targeting the 'Movable Middle' Drives Brand Growth


Marketers are under a false impression that targeting non- brand buyers via a broad reach media plan is the best way to drive incremental sales and long-term growth. A foundational study by the MMA and Neustar proves this is wrong. Actually, the most productive approach is to target a consumer segment called the Movable Middle. Evidence will be presented as to how this new strategy increases ROAS by 50% AND drives more conversion of non-buyers vs. reach based media plans.​
