For over a decade, marketers have been dreaming about achieving the holy grail of customer targeting: one-to-one marketing. When it comes to creating advertising messaging geared towards specific people, we’ve previously been limited to setting up demographics, or using cohorts to reach our target customers.

It has become imperative for advertisers to showcase their ads throughout the customer buying journey to hook users better.
