acerno is the only ad network that anonymously targets 100 percent of U.S. online shoppers by how they spend their money. Results show that how consumers shop is the best predictor of what they are in-market for and most accurate descriptor of who they are—more so than what they read, stream or network online. There is no better indicator of intent to purchase or interest than what shoppers actually spend their money on. Behavioral targeting based on this shopping data drives incremental sales for multichannel retailers and product manufacturers, and consideration for brand advertisers.

What if ...

...you wanted to reach soccer players? You wouldn't waste half your ad spending on everyone and anyone reading about David Beckham, watching the World Cup or "friending" a fan club when you could precisely target U.S. consumers who have shopped for soccer balls, cleats, Umbros—and the occasional ice pack.

acerno can precisely target these soccer players because we are enabled by Akamai Advertising Decision Solutions. Akamai ADS offers the industry's only online shopping data cooperative composed of anonymous shopping behaviors across more than 500 multichannel retailers and product manufacturer Web sites that include nearly every product category, and the cooperative sees an estimated $13.5 billion in consumer spending quarterly. From this unique co-op, acerno customizes ADS' predictive and descriptive models to accurately segment in-market and interested shoppers from 140 million U.S. consumers.
