In the age of infinite programming and overnight competitors, media companies are being pushed to capture audience attention like never before. But the process for developing meaningful insights doesn’t have to be a bottleneck – even when they’re new or niche.


Helixa’s audience intelligence platform delivers the complete picture and can help you understand your target audiences in all of their human dimensions.


Our audience insights can be used in numerous ways, with many media clients using Helixa to discover advertising partnerships. By giving you insight into your target audiences’ top products, influencers, and lifestyles, you can better advertise to them by tapping into their unique interests. Helixa can quickly help drive your advertising strategy from ideation to execution. 


"Working with Helixa helps us produce some of the most strategic work we've done to date, and it is a testament to its ease-of-use that sometimes I find myself enjoying the time I spend in their platform." - Rauxa 


Let’s take a closer look at how one of our media clients uses the platform to find advertising opportunities that reach their audiences more effectively.


From Ideation to Execution 


Our media client is a cable television channel with a vast portfolio of shows that appeal to many different demographics. Breaking down your audience’s demographics allows you to understand them better and identify what brands best align with who they are. Let’s start by taking a closer look at the channel’s main demographic and how that can inform their advertising preferences:


– Female: 51%

– 35-44 years old: 17%

– $100K - 200K HHI: 22%

– Married: 43%

We then took a closer look at their top products and services genres to discover their interests and passions.

Creating partnerships that align with audiences is more important than ever before. As electric cars become more popular, it also becomes more important for car brands to reach the right audience. Helixa’s capabilities allowed our media client to know if their audience is more interested in eco-friendly electric vehicles than the average United States consumer. This audience is 2.10x more likely to engage with them, making electric vehicles a great potential partner for our media client.


Knowing that your audience is enthusiastic about a genre is only half of the task. It’s also important to know which car manufacturers are popular with your audience. With Helixa data, we can drill down to see which electric vehicle manufacturers our media client’s audience engages with the most.


1. BMW i - 3.32x

2. Nissan Electric - 2.41x

3. Chevrolet Electric - 2.30x

As we all know, EVs do not come cheap, and these popular EV manufacturers come in at different price points. Chevrolet Electric EVs start at $31,500, Nissan Electric EVs start at $43,190, and BMW i EVs start at a whopping $55,900. But when we did our demographic analysis, we found that our media client’s audience is more likely to have a household income over $100,000 than the average US consumer. This audience can afford their favorite EVs, including their top choice, BMW i. With this analysis, our media client can confidently approach BMW, Nissan, or Chevy and present a strong data-driven pitch for why these car manufacturers should advertise on their television channel.
