Partnership Rapidly Increases Census Response of Hard-to-Count Homes in Local Municipalities
Mobiquity Technologies and Advocacy Data Release Results of Census Response-Driving Platform
NEW YORK, September 15, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Mobiquity Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: MOBQD), a leading provider of next-generation advertising technology, and Advocacy Data, a leading political data provider, announce the results of their pilot program to increase Census response rates among under-reported and hard-to-count homes.
In normal Census years, armies of Census workers knock on doors of homes in neighborhoods where Census response has been low and populations are deemed “hard-to-count.” The coronavirus has made the typical summer door-knocking practice extremely difficult in many neighborhoods. The Mobiquity-Advocacy Data partnership pilot program used proprietary audience data combined with the Advangelists digital media buying platform to programmatically target non-responding neighborhoods in Atlanta, Georgia. Census blocks were saturated with in-language digital invitations to complete the Census over the phone. Within one week, the program generated 3,210 new Census responses, a 116x Return on Investment (ROI), and an estimated $23 million in federal funding for Fulton County over the next 10 years.
“We were highly encouraged by the results and the ability to target low-performing areas with zero waste,” said Roger Allan Stone, President of Advocacy Data. “Our combined teams strategized around solving the urgent need to complete the Census while building an integrated set of tactics powered by data that any municipality can quickly deploy.”
Although many more municipalities in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and across the South are actively executing the Advangelists-Advocacy Data program, time is running out. Census results must be completed by Sept. 30.
“Speed is critical to success,” added Dean Julia, CEO of Mobiquity. “We’ve made this program turn-key. Any municipality can be live with a Census-response program in less than 24 hours and saturate the under-counted Census blocks in five to seven days.”
