How to choose from so many channels?

Whether it is the selection of channels, or performance, the most important thing is to understand the user.

Research of users

The purpose of user research is to provide a relevant data base for production.

What is users’ research?

Use data to make results more accurate.

The premise of successful advertising promotion is presentation, so that it does or says the right thing to the right person in the right place at the right time.

The process of describing accurate user profiles is solving the problem of converting data into business value, so to speak, by mining gold and silver from big data.

In the era of mobile Internet, users use their cell phones to search for nearly 4~5 hours a day, and there are tens of millions of social networking sites and forums that provide information browsing.

Which cities are the users we want to find, which websites are they browsing everyday, what information they pay attention to, etc., are all important clues to guide us to choose the accurate placement channels.

Based on the many fragments of user behavior collected to restore the user's attributes, social background, interests and preferences, and even reveal the inner needs, personality characteristics, social crowd and other potential attributes.

After understanding the various consumption behaviors and needs of users, the crowd characteristics are accurately carved, and the aggregation of different dimensions of user characteristics is carried out for specific business scenarios. It is then possible to recover the data into a user image, which can guide the analysis of consumption scenarios and the selection of placement channels.

Discover the product, lead to the needs

With the upgrade of Internet consumption, advertisers have gone from passively waiting for consumers to actively search using search engines such as Baidu to taking the initiative and precisely pushing according to user profiles. This change can be a great blessing to the newly listed products with low visibility.

Conversion process: the decision of purchasing
