Defining Your Target With A+U NOW’s SmartMarket™ Segmentation

Embedded in every A+U NOW Study is C+R’s proprietary SmartMarketTM Segmentation overlay. With C+R’s decades of segmentation experience in the CPG space, and tested across multiple consumer categories, SmartMarket is built upon our assessment of hundreds of carefully curated CPG-related attitude and behavior questions. These attitudes and behaviors questions included in each A+U NOW study represents the greatest differentiation for the segments. Based on respondents’ responses, they are “tagged” by the SmartMarket proprietary algorithm and assigned to their appropriate segment. 

The Results Illuminate Six Distinct Consumer Segments
