What's an audience?
Your audience shows your target demographics. For example; age, nationality, gender or occupation.
With Ocast you have the possibility to present your audience in detail.

You will be directed to the audience dashboard where you have an overview of your current audiences and can also create new ones.
To create a new audience, click on create audience on the top right corner of the audience dashboard.
You will then be redirected to a new page.
The first section contains the following fields. You should fill them in with appropriate information.
