Historically, companies rely on customer surveys to produce consumer data. This data consists primarily of age ranges, gender, HHI, education, profession, etc. and is generally beneficial when creating marketing campaigns. The purpose of this test was to explore the potential benefits of identifying customers by personality types and employing that data in future marketing strategies. The collection method employed utilized a new behavioral technology that analyzes a single facial image (selfie) and processes that image through phenotype and genotype databases which have been studied and validated for over30 years. The facial image analysis was processed through two clinically proven personality inventories (Big 5 and DISC).
The test was designed to reveal if greater campaign success could be realized by:
(a)Identifying and matching customer personality types to audience personality types
(b) Enhanced insights into ad creative written for specific personality types
