How to work with the data

Working with Unacast’s Competitive Intelligence solution, users can explore trends and insights in visitation, demographics, capture rate and area traffic, local trade area, and cross visitation behavior as well as benchmarking to brands, other venues, and competitors.

Positioning Analysis

Understanding your business’s positioning typically involves sample-based methods that are limited in scope and thus difficult to understand real-world trends or conduct with regular frequency. Unacast’s actual foot traffic insights helps customers augment their competitive analysis by allowing them to:

Benchmark against competitors’ foot traffic, peak visitations, visitor trends, etc.

Analyze potential cannibalization effects, localized brand affinity and conduct void analyses

Uncover cross-visitation trends and discover previously unknown competitors

Compare your visitors’ demographic profiles to those of your competitors

Understand consumer behavior with competitors’ sites and effects of their omnichannel sales
