South African eCommerce audience

To give a glimpse into what Audiense can do, we’ve taken a look at the South African eCommerce audience. Above is only the first of many pages illuminating this audience - this audience is further segmented into smaller groups. Here, we can see that the SA eCommerce audience is 58.57% male, 72.70% English speaking and the brands they trust are Takealot, Pick n Pay, Woolworths, Telkom and Nandos. We can also see that their personality involves interests such as travel, society and sports, values such as openness to change, self-transcendence and modernity and lastly, needs such as liberty, excitement and curiosity. By figuring out who you’re speaking to, you will be able to know how best to speak to them.

“Audiense is such an important new partner to us. It rounds out our clients’ ability to understand who they want to speak to, how to reach them and what they look like as a group. The ability to take social audience data and transform it into something like a digital targeting pack reinforces the ability for social data to quickly be turned into digital returns. We’re grateful to Audiense for putting their trust in us, and look forward to introducing them to our incredible African clients,” says YOUKNOW MD, Kelvin Jonck.

Through YOUKNOW, Audiense’s current and future South African clients can now receive local sales, onboarding and technical support.

“Audiense are happy to welcome YOUKNOW as our trusted voice in South Africa. The strength we have when complimenting other tools such as social listening or survey platforms has proven to be unstoppable. Knowing we have the amazing YOUKNOW team to help spread that message is very exciting,” says Luke White, Head of Partnerships at Audiense. He continues, “When viewing a social listening audience through the social consumer segmentation lens, we can start to see how people are connected among themselves, ignore the noise and unearth more interesting, potentially unexpected communities.” Audiense makes it possible to weed out information that is less relevant and rather hone in on the specific segments that make a real difference to your brand.
