In the realm of marketing, campaign effectiveness is a constant topic of conversation. Marketers spend significant resources on ads, successfully driving high traffic to their websites, and often take pride in these impressive numbers. However, this triumph can be short-lived when sales teams express their frustration - you've driven thousands of visitors to the site, but only a handful have left their contact details or signed up for a demo.

In response, marketers may invest heavily in revamping the website copy, hoping that a change in messaging might increase conversions. But despite these efforts, the situation often remains unchanged, leaving many marketers confused and wondering where they went wrong. The truth is, it’s not necessarily about the quantity of website traffic or the copy - it’s about driving the right kind of visitors to your site.

Imagine running an ad campaign where Facebook, Google, or LinkedIn assures you that they're driving a specific demographic to your site - say, lawyers for your legal services website. However, on closer inspection, you find that these visitors are lawyers from industries you don't cater to. This is where the power of intent data comes into play, offering the ability to de-anonymize web traffic and determine whether your campaigns are effective in attracting the right audience that matches your ideal customer profile (ICP).

Consider this hypothetical scenario: What's better? Having a thousand visitors on your website, of which only 20 are from companies that align with your target market, or having 500 visitors, with 70 of them belonging to your desired companies? The logical answer leans towards the latter. It’s not just about attracting more people to your website, but about attracting the right people - the ones who are most likely to convert into customers.
