The Audience Builder lets you define a set of consumers from within the Gloo Insights dataset based on a specific location (address), a radius from that location, and filters based on specific attributes. These Audiences can then be used to generate Insights in the Gloo Platform or to activate (e.g. send to Facebook for a digital campaign or export for a direct mail campaign). Audiences must be a minimum size of 10,000 to be activated on.
Building an Audience in Audience Builder
We recommend a minimum audience size of 10,000 and ideally 20,000 to achieve your goals.

Where should I save the Audience I build?
Audiences you build are not comprised of proprietary data specific to your Organization, but the Audiences you build should be saved in the same Organization that will be using the Audience in either Reports or in Audiences. Name Audiences in a way that is easily identifiable, with details such as date, filter, or type. The date format and spacing are up to you.
