Yandex.Audience is a service that allows you to use your own target audience data to create ad campaigns in Yandex.Direct and Yandex.Display (in Russian).

Yandex.Audience is easy to use. Using this service, you can:

Create audience segments using your own data

If you want to serve Yandex.Direct ads to your current clients you just need to upload the information from your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database to Yandex.Audience and use the created segment in your ad campaign settings in Yandex.Direct.

When creating a segment, your data will be compared with all accumulated Yandex data on users. The segment will include all cookies that Yandex knows of for people whose information you uploaded.

Find potential customers with Look-alike technology

You can find users that are similar to your existing customers in terms of their interests and their behavior on the internet. Users found with Look-alike technology are likely to be more interested in your product or service than ordinary internet users. Their cookies will be saved in a separate segment that can be used when displaying ads.

Grant access to your segments to other Yandex accounts

You can use one segment to set up advertising for several accounts in Yandex.Direct and Yandex.Display.

Yandex.Audience has an API that lets you manage your segments and access to them.
