Reach your best audience using Criteo’s exclusive shopping data

Now you can build audiences across an extended number of product categories, brand interests, and demographics, using Criteo’s Commerce Audiences.

Create your ideal audience for every campaign with a full range of options across:

  • 1000+ Product Categories: Target users who are actively researching and adding to their basket from a granular list of products or services, including price range filters
  • 1000+ Brand Interests: Target users who are actively browsing certain brand names, from different verticals including Auto, Electronics, and Retail
  • Demographics: Target users based on gender and purchasing power

With these options, you can tap into Criteo’s exclusive audiences. Below are some examples of audiences that can be built:

Out-of-the-box ads: No creative? No problem. We can create and launch templatized ads for you. Share your logo and any images you’d like to use, and we will customize your ads. These ads will adapt to different screen sizes.
