Using the ClickScapes Trends Tool

ClickScapes captures weekly and monthly web visit browsing behaviours of Canadian consumers across a broad cross-section of mobile applications, individual websites, companies and interest categories. ClickScapes can be used to develop a better understanding of website visitors and to differentiate between web browsing behaviours at home versus away to increase the effectiveness of advertising spend. Users can leverage weekly data to perform campaign response analysis or monthly data to assess seasonality impacts on visitor levels. In addition to monitoring weekly visitors, users can identify emerging trends by tracking interest categories across several weekly or monthly time periods. ClickScapes Trends is updated on a monthly basis which allows users to identify and react to emerging trends in web behaviour.
