How Do I Find My Best Pizza Customers?

Our Consumer Analytics team are highly skilled in the science of micromarketing. What does that mean? Micromarketing is another way of saying that we develop a marketing strategy in which your direct mail advertising efforts are focused on a small group of highly-targeted customers. This gives your message the best chance possible to be seen by the right customers at the right time.

If you’re trying to reach those in your delivery zones, Mspark can help through a variety of targeting options. Mspark can help your campaign reach an entire market, or narrow it down by zip code, sub-zip code, carrier route or even down to a specific household. We can help you geographically target by your unique circumstances, such staying within delivery zones or battling competitive intrusion.
