The most powerful segmentation tool for the cultural sector.

Audience Spectrum segments the whole UK population by their attitudes towards culture, and by what they like to see and do. There are 10 different profiles that you can use to understand who lives in your local area, what your current audiences are like, and what you could do to build new ones. Audience Spectrum is the most accurate tool the sector has ever had to help target audiences, and include a wider public.


Audience Spectrum is FREE as part of Audience Finder

Audience Spectrum profiles the population at household and post-code levels and can be used as a tool for prospecting and data-tagging as well as profiling and mapping. Over 1000 organisations (large, small, ticketed and non-ticketed) are now using it practically and strategically.
