Find new homeowners at the right time.
Milestones – the significant events or stages in one’s life – trigger a measurable change in a consumer’s normal buying behavior. The consumers on FocusOn Life’s Milestones have just had or are about to have a life event such as a milestone birthday, a wedding, or a new addition to the family as well as other life events such as graduating college or buying a first home. With each life event comes the need and want for consumers to spend. FocusOn Life’s Milestones offers the perfect opportunity to reach consumers at the right time – before, during, or after their life event. See full data card for Life Milestone categories
FocusOn Life’s Milestones
- Because, new movers are needy! They need to secure new and reaffirm existing business relationships for home furnishings, groceries, child care, medical services, restaurants, automotive services and much, much more. In fact, these special “needy” consumers spend more in the first six months following a move than the average consumer spends in many years.
- New movers’ spending behavior averages $9,000 per move (9X more than that of a non-mover during the first 12 months), with annual new mover expenditures exceeding $150 billion.
