    Targeting and demographics

    A demographic can be defined as a certain characteristic or attribute of a user or a person.

    It relates to a statistic or factor regarding that person such as: age, race, sex, economic status, income level and so on. The demographic can be as broad or as specific as you like. For example, a broad demographic would be “males”, whereas a specific example may be “males who love football”. Demographics are essential in affiliate marketing especially when it comes to paid traffic. Knowing the demographics of your audience will allow you to target only those people whom you know to be interested in your campaign.

    Let’s say, for example, we’re promoting an adult dating campaign, we already know one key demographic and that is “adult”. Promoting this campaign to people under the age of 18 would just be wasting your money, as it’s not going to convert. This is just one broad example. However, the closer you look into demographics and targeting, the more you start to understand affiliate marketing.

    Put simply, targeting demographics allows you to show your campaigns only to those whom you wish.

    Most affiliate marketing traffic platforms allows you to target various demographics, some more than others. Moreover, it depends on what traffic source you’re using, as some will only allow you to target things like keywords and URLs. Both represent the art of targeting. But, it all depends on what you need to target: a demographic, a keyword, a URL, or something else.

    Here are a few popular and common tools you may use when doing demographic and targeting research.

    Spy Tools
