  • Location and language.
  • Where they came to your site from (i.e. traffic source), and where they go next.

From Your CRM

  • Look at how your existing customers move through the sales funnel.
  • Personalize and target communications and campaigns to new target audiences based on your existing customer data.
  • Analyze who your top customers are and use that data to construct buyer personas.

From Your Social Media

From Your Emails

From Surveys

  • Geographic location.
  • Age bracket.
  • Sex.
  • Level of income.

  • a trust API that operates in a similar way to CAPTCHA software;

  • a “PIGIN” API that tracks sets of interest groups for a particular user; and
  • the Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC) API that monitors the browsing habits of groups of similar users (not individuals).
