Nielsen Launches Geotribes Segmentation

Nielsen Launches Geotribes Segmentation

New Zealanders grouped by age, life-stage and socio-economic status to easily understand consumers’ needs and motivations

AUCKLAND: 22 July, 2014 Nielsen, a leading global provider of information and insights into what consumers watch and buy has today announced it will launch RDA Research’s geoTribes segmentation within its Consumer and Media Insights (CMI) service.

Fifteen ‘Tribes’ or segments have been created using age, life-stage and socio-economic status to reflect different elements of the population.

In confirming the arrangement, Robert Dommett, Technical Director of RDA Research, and the founder of geoTribes said, “In introducing the 2014 geoTribes to New Zealand, media owners will be able to enhance monetization by using the segments to give a deeper understanding of their audiences' needs and motivations. Planners and marketers will use geoTribes to build more effective audience-driven strategies. They can integrate local area marketing with media planning, market research and database profiling through an underlying needs framework.”

Kate Terry, Regional Director of Consumer and Media Insights said geoTribes provides a unique view on consumers and how to connect with them. “The Tribes offers something different. Unlike other segmentations, it can be activated for brands or locations quickly and easily. You can analyse the segments through CMI databases or explore geographically through geoTribes online mapping tool. It’s a tremendous opportunity to understand consumers at a person-level, from career orientated Crusaders to those with more Slender Meanz.”

The Industry Review Group welcomes the introduction and sees it as a timely enhancement of the existing Consumer and Media Insights service. “The world around us has changed and this new segmentation reflects modern New Zealand. It highlights our focus and commitment, with Nielsen, to provide the industry with best in class measurement and insights”, commented Barry Williamson, Chair of the Group.

The geoTribes segmentation will be in the New Zealand market, aligned with Consumer and Media Insights (CMI), from August 2014.

The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill.
