During Advertising Week New York

The New Era of People Picking

Not in pages but in people. The great shift in media buying to audience picking is upon us. Data-driven targeting decouples audiences from the traditional proxy, media, and lets advertisers find their ideal consumers anywhere. Profiles and personae are now more important than pages. Data is the new media. But the new arts of audience buying are still evolving, heavily dependent on technology and data and increasing the power of a handful of major players in the digital economy. 

As we explore at OMMA Audience Buying during Advertising Week, the shift is not so simple or easy. We ask both media buyers and sellers to expose the unexpected consequences and complexity of following the consumer.

"I thought the content at this event, focusing on the use of data in all kinds of marketing media was fabulous, right up my alley, and very relevant to almost any business today."  Amy Benicewicz, President,

"OMMA's event brought together real marketers having real discussions; and what is of real value is that they did not always agree and there was healthy discourse around the role of big data versus the role of the big idea among other key themes.  Very well-done event."  Jeni Lee Chapman, Managing Director, Gorkana Inc.
