Know Your Audiences
Are you still talking about unique visitors, or do you want to develop customer segments to learn how many high-value intenders or mid-tier loyalists are interacting with your marketing content?
- Gain a comprehensive picture of customers and prospects across all channels
- Measure and compare a wide array of variables including consumer preferences and demographics
- Create and refine actionable audiences for consistent, targeted campaigns
- Cultivate brand loyalty while gaining new insights into high-value customers
While audience management can be defined and approached in many different ways, here's the overarching framework. If a company can:
- Recognize at some level the person with whom it is interacting.
- Know something descriptive or have information based on past customer interactions about that person.
- Accomplish that recognition and application of "persona" information in various media.
- Then the company can make its messaging that much more relevant for the recipient.
- Achieve some level of certainty that it is reaching the individuals and segments targeted for a particular message, offer or product.
According to a recent Forrester report last year by Dave Fankland, not very well. Some highlights:
- "Forty-three percent of marketers fail to capture any of the customer preferences we asked about."
- "Thirty percent of marketers who capture at least one type of preference data take no action based on that preference."+
- The results, as described by consumers: "Only 14% of U.S. consumers agree that the ads they see are relevant to their wants and needs, and even fewer agree that the direct mail (10%) and email marketing (7%) that they receive is relevant."
The report goes on to note:
"Marketers spend billions each year tailoring their message and targeting the right recipients or segments, but even so-called precision marketing—direct mail and e-mail—misses the mark with consumers."
