When most people get started creating targeted audiences based on interests, they target one or a list of interests.

For example: a bar for Chicago Bears fans in downtown San Francisco wants to target local Bears fans. 

In the detailed targeting of their audience, they select ‘Chicago Bears’, ‘NFL’ and ‘American football’.

A clever bar owner might even throw in ‘Walter Payton’ or ‘Brian Urlacher’ or ‘Devin Hester’.

By getting creative with your targeting with audience layers, you can get laser-focused with who you are reaching!

Make sure you are getting the most return on your investment of time and money by targeting your ideal customers!
