It's knowing where prospects are—and how they behave—that's paying off for today's New Media marketers. Their advertising dollars are in hot pursuit of a fragmented audience that now receives thousands of channels of programming over TV, Internet, radio and mobile device. … Enter good ol' Behavioral Targeting. This tried-and-true direct marketing practice has never been hotter.
"The Web and new media are where people are these days," says Jeff Hirsch, CEO of Revenue Science. "People now spend almost twice the time online [that] they do watching TV." Behavioral targeting that digitally measures people's purchase interests through their Web behaviors is turning up the hot prospects.

According to Dynamic Logic's metrics—and NTT's high satisfaction level—the targeted approach delivered a 40% to 200% lift over NTT's standard run-of-site campaign.
