While Visitations are about understanding the places people visit, IP Address data provides information for marketers interested in advertising to households.
What is IP Address Data?
IP addresses are numeric addresses written as four numbers, separated by periods, ranging from 0 to 255. Public IP address ranges can be used to identify the public network or service provider used to establish Internet connectivity. Our data returns up to 10 IP addresses most recently associated with a mobile device, when available.
How can Marketers use IP Address data?
IP Address data can be used to understand device associations and enrich your device graph. By understanding the connection points of your customers, marketers can use device associations to run cross-device advertising campaigns. For example, a clothing store company wants to be able advertise their latest set of loungewear to households. The company can use this data to advertise across channels, like OTT and CTV, that need to have an IP address to identify the household, increasing the likelihood of a prospective customer making a purchase. Since IP address ranges also identify Internet service provider (ISP), it can also be used by MSOs to advertise their Internet services to households.
