It creates a richly textured consumer profile, and it helps understand the distinct communication styles of your best targets.
Understanding customers is critical to marketing. VALS strengthens demographic characterizations by explaining the deeper psychological drivers of consumer behavior. VALS provides clients with tailored marketing strategies for targeting, positioning, and communications real world, real time, actionable strategies.
