Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQs

How does LSMx make my marketing efforts more effective?

LSMx helps you focus your efforts only on the households which are likely to be your best potential customers. Additionally, LSMx shows you the area around your location(s) where you will achieve the best marketing results. This area is called your “drive-time trade area” and is determined by how far most customers are willing to drive to reach your location.

Customers today think in minutes, not miles. Your customer knows it takes him or her “5 minutes” to get to your location. He or she probably doesn’t know that your location is 3.24 miles away from his or her house.

Leveraging Buxton’s knowledge of average historical traffic volume and wait times, the road network and speed limits, your business type, and your potential customers, LSMx generates your drive time trade area.

Marketing to customers beyond the bounds of your drive time trade area will generally not be as successful as your efforts within its bounds.

How does LSMx know who and where my best potential customers are?

LSMx was created by Buxton, the leading customer analytics firm for more than 22 years. Buxton has analyzed the locations and customers of numerous restaurant and retail brands and concept types to create a proprietary methodology that builds a customer profile for your business, even if that concept doesn’t have any data. LSMx leverages this experience to identify the types of households most likely to be your best customers based on your brand, concept type, and location.
