CAMEO for Marketing

TargetCAMEO is the most extensive consumer segmentation system covering over 35 countries, supporting global marketing initiatives. CAMEO has a universal international code enabling Marketers to profile and target customers across borders and quickly assesses market potential in new regions.

The UK CAMEO classifications is available at individual postcode level. The segmentations provide powerful consumer insight, which can be used by Marketers to deliver tailored and effective marketing campaigns. CAMEO helps understand customers in terms of their:

  • Demographics – age, gender, lifestage, ethnicity, education, occupation
  • Affluence – income, investments, property value, spending, risk
  • Lifestyle and media - hobbies, interests, holidays, brand affinities
  • Behaviour – channel usage, loyal or switcher, technology use
  • Attitudes – green and ethical views, leader or follower, spender or saver

Ask yourself these simple questions - if you don't know who your customers are then:

  • How can you attract new and profitable ones?
  • How can you ensure you're marketing the right offer with the right message?
  • How can you instil loyalty, reduce churn and increase customer value?
  • How do you know you're positioning your retail outlets in the right place?
  • How can you plan for the future with confidence?

Key uses of CAMEO for marketing:
