Now to find your target households, click add a new area to bring up the targeting tool.

We have split these into four simple categories:
Families, Early-life, Mid-life and Later-life.
These categories expand further for more refined targeting.
You can hover over the question mark to find out more about each sub category.
Select either an entire category or any amount of sub sectors or both in any group.
The map will change to reflect your selections.
Yellow sectors hold less of your target households and the dark orange holds more of your target audience.
Now choose your income bracket. Leave both selected to target all household incomes or de select on or the other.
Use the slider to adapt the number of target households selected on the map.
Sectors automatically turn blue as you use the slider.
Wide gives you more households with a broader audience.
Accurate gives you less households who are close to your target audience selections.
