RMT, IRI and StatSocial Partner to Deliver DriverTag™ Psychographic Matched Brand Audiences


RMT (“Research Measurement Technologies”) announced a breakthrough advanced audience targeting solution that improves campaign ROAS and Brand ROI lift through direct targeting of individuals based upon the psychological match between the consumer and brand ad. This new service is now available to CPG brands on multiple platforms together with IRI ProScores®, providing advertisers with a purchase-based audience targeting solution optimized for exposure context and consumer psychological profiles.

In cooperation with leading social insights firm StatSocial, RMT analyzed the psychological attributes of 93,000,000 anonymized US consumers, assigning each a unique combination of 265 RMT DriverTags™, an independently validated profiling technique proven in multiple independent studies to improve campaign ROI/ROAS outcomes by matching the DriverTag™ psychological profile of the consumer to the DriverTag™ profile of the brand ad. This 1:1 deterministic matching process pioneered by RMT, is called “DriverTag™ Ad Resonance”, where each individual consumer is scored and ranked in terms of their potential to deliver an improved ROI and ROAS result for the advertised brand. In the final process step, consumers are screened for category and/or brand usage using IRI ProScores, ensuring that each consumer target with RMT DriverTags ™ is both a brand ad “psych-a-like” and “likely purchaser.”

ProScores is a perfect complement to the DriverTag™ Ad Resonance Technology, because it helps marketers to align creative and content to consumers who are purchasing actual products and categories.

RMT Co-Founders Bill Harvey and Bill McKenna commented, “Today’s  announcement completes the RMT DriverTag™ product portfolio, offering advertisers and media owners privacy compliant psychological targeting of consumer audiences directly via the consumer or indirectly and contextually  via the TV Programs they view, the websites they visit and the YouTube Channels they access.”

StatSocial CEO Michael Hussey commented, “Research Measurement Technologies is at the forefront of building applications that bridge the gap across disparate yet complementary data assets, platforms, and identity solutions. We’re excited to be an important part of this solution.”

“ProScores is a perfect complement to the DriverTag™ Ad Resonance Technology, because it helps marketers to align creative and content to consumers who are purchasing actual products and categories,” said JP Beauchamp, principal of the IRI Media Center of Excellence.
