The Next Evolution in Targeted Media Buying

A breakthrough in predictive marketing has been made possible—the result of our exciting partnership with Amex Advance℠, the consumer insights business of American Express. Marketers and advertisers can now benefit from the data resources and proprietary insights of both Wiland and Amex Advance in order to optimize audience targeting in all digital advertising channels as well as direct mail. Brands and organizations that take advantage of this data partnership enjoy a competitive advantage in fueling more effective acquisition campaigns, increasing their market share, and knowing more about their customers than ever before.

Through this unique data partnership, Amex Advance’s predictive insights are used to further enrich Wiland’s vast consumer spending data, behavioral data, and proprietary social media data. The Wiland Technology Platform—using predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning—leverages this robust understanding of consumer purchasing behavior to create audience segments with the highest likelihood to spend in hundreds of consumer categories. The result for advertisers is more precise targeting and higher Return on Ad Spend (ROAS) in customer acquisition campaigns.

The Predictive Power of Amex Advance

Amex Advance is able to analyze the vast majority of the $1 trillion in transactions on the American Express network to develop predictive insights on future consumer spending. Such insights can only be produced in a closed loop system like that used by American Express. While other credit cards are issued through banks with transactions handled by processors, the American Express network maintains these proprietary insights into consumer spending behavior.

The Wiland/Amex Advance partnership uses a carefully structured process through which personal consumer data is anonymized and aggregated prior to being used in the creation of marketing audiences. No names or contact information of any kind, including whether or not a consumer is an American Express Card Member, is ever shared with Wiland or its clients.
