LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov. 03, 2020 — Inuvo, Inc. (NYSE American: INUV), a leading provider of marketing technology, powered by artificial intelligence (AI) that serves brands and agencies, today announces how the IntentKey AI technology has fueled political campaigns leading up to election day.
The 2020 elections have had unprecedented challenges due to COVID-19. Stanford University researchers report 42 percent of the U.S. labor force is working remotely from home and therefore not being influenced by traditional campaign advertising channels like radio, signage, and billboards as part of their normal drives to and from work. In addition, other forms of political advertising have been uprooted due to COVID-19, including door knocking and rallies. This left political campaign teams in uncharted waters in terms of how best to reach voters and not surprisingly, many have invested more this year in digital advertising than ever before in their efforts to reach voters.
“Inuvo was expecting an increase in political campaigns this year due in part to the confusion associated with political advertising within social platforms in the last presidential election,” said Tristan Cameron, VP of Sales & Account Management. “COVID-19 created an even greater need for digital advertising solutions this year that could safely reach voters where they are consuming trustworthy content.”
The pandemic also caused many voters to opt for early mail in voting to allow for safe social distancing. This created another challenge for political campaigns to efficiently use their advertising budgets and only target those who have yet to vote. Inuvo utilized the IntentKey to strategically target users who are actively consuming content around local ballot issues and polling stations to ensure the efficient use of budgets to target only voters who have not yet voted and avoid wasting dollars on those who have likely already casted their vote.
Leading up to this final day of voting, we’re seeing an increasing interest in local voting issues and working to ensure our clients are reaching those in market voting audiences for optimal awareness at the polls.
