By enriching Starcount’s data onto their own customer records through InfoSum, brands and publishers can build a deeper understanding of what motivates their customers to help predict future behaviour. This insight reveals why customers choose them over competitors and can be mapped into InfoSum’s privacy-first framework to find lookalike audiences across the publisher ecosystem. 

Starcount analyses demographic and social data on 30 million UK consumers to create a behavioural understanding of what customers love with dynamic data which stays on top of fast-growing trends and market movement. By activating this data in the marketing and advertising ecosystem, Starcount generates results:

  • 35% uplift in exposure to target audience 
  • 4x revenue than BAU in incremental sales 
  • Reduce churn by retaining 60% of lapsing customers

The new Starcount and InfoSum partnership allows marketers to activate this data within a secure, privacy-safe framework to drive a future-proofed solution.

Sunil Modha, Sales Director at InfoSum, says: “We are excited to partner with Starcount to give brands, publishers and agencies a new privacy-first way to connect Starcount’s consumer insights to their own first-party data. Safe and secure data collaboration is more important than ever. The depreciation of third-party cookies has resulted in a loss of connectivity and customer knowledge for many companies. To future-proof their marketing, brands and publishers need to be able to access insights that enable them to deliver better campaigns while protecting consumers’ privacy. That is exactly where our ‘non-movement of data’ approach comes into play.”

Rowena Humby, CEO at Starcount, comments: “By partnering with InfoSum, Starcount brings the targeting variables that marketers love outside walled-gardens into an omnichannel and measurable solution. Starcount works with brands, agencies, and publishers to leverage first – party data and enrich Starcount’s data knowledge to reveal an understanding of customer motivations to transform marketing by connecting emotionally. Through our new partnership with InfoSum, we are excited to activate this dynamic behavioural data across the marketing and advertising ecosystem to improve customer retention, acquisition and lifetime value.”
