Founded in 2001 by Navy veterans, VIQTORY established itself as the go-to resource for military transitioning into employment and entrepreneurship opportunities. Since then, VIQTORY has built itself into a trusted leader in the military veteran recruitment, with unprecedented data-based insights into veteran interests, skills and entrepreneurship behaviors. VIQTORY’s rich first-party data set, incorporating survey results, lookalike audiences, data overlays, predictive models built by their in-house data scientists and digital strategists helps their clients reach millions of potentially interested U.S. veterans and military spouses.


First-party data enables VIQTORY to focus with great precision on the audiences that matter most to their clients. But limitations of data-matching technology can create a gap between desired reach and available online targets. Additionally, given the importance of identifying veterans interested in entrepreneurship and franchising as rapidly as possible, VIQTORY has developed a refined, but rapid approach to campaign execution.

First, VIQTORY helped Signal 88 define who their target audience was through an audience discovery call. Numerous military-centric audience segments were considered such as age, branch of military, rank, education, location, skillsets and behavior. Once a customized audience was identified, VIQTORY moved to market messaging.

More than 15 years of publishing, advertising and engagement, combined with first-party data, provide VIQTORY clients with deep insights into the needs, interests and behavior of the veteran community that Signal 88 leveraged. VIQTORY helped Signal 88 reach veterans seeking franchise and business opportunities with a strong message-to-market match and first-party data targeting, and audience lookalikes.

While many clients often bring their own creative, VIQTORY’s internal creative team has 40 combined years of military- and veteran-specific design experience, which is critical to a successful campaign that hinges on delivering the right message at the right time to the right audience segment. To ensure campaigns stay up to date, VIQTORY constantly swaps out creatives and makes changes on the go.
