About Semasio

Semasio enables marketers to unify their targeting by understanding consumers on their own terms

At Semasio we believe the best way to understand modern consumers is on their own terms – the terms they consume every day on the web. This also means we understand the pages they consume based on the terms these pages contain.

The benefit of semantically understanding consumers and pages is the ability to seamlessly target across consumers and pages with one unified targeting strategy. We call it targeting on your terms.
