What is Fair-Trade DataTM?
We are all familiar with the concept of fair-trade coffee, where a farmer is compensated fairly for their hard work. A commitment to fair-trade is a commitment to inclusion, transparency and fairness, traits that do not always exist in the data market today. Every provider speaks to their data and states that it is both 1st party and compliant. But how many of the consumers in that data set know that their data is part of the sale? If you believe that data is a manifestation of human identity, shouldn’t the consumer be included in the transaction of their data in the same way a fair-trade farmer is? We think so! As a result, we created an entire taxonomy of Fair-Trade DataTM audience segments that you can use to inform your advertising buys in your preferred platforms. When you purchase a Killi Fair-Trade segment, 50% of the proceeds are redistributed back to the consumers in the form of cash where the money is deposited directly into their Killi account. These are not ‘points’, ‘tokens’, or coupons – this is cash, the currency that is used to trade data today. Amidst a US market where the unemployment rate is over 10% and climbing, we think this redistribution of wealth is the right thing to do. If you believe in ethical data, we encourage you to test Killi segments against those you have used in the past.
Killi offers segments including, but not limited to: age, gender, ethnicity, education, household income, and behavioural interests. Additionally, Killi also provides audiences detailing political preferences (voting history, political affiliation), as well as healthcare information (age, health history, family genetic illnesses, exercise frequency, exercise frequency, etc.).
