Data-driven marketing for the digital customer

Kickstart your data-driven marketing initiatives

Marketers often face the daunting task of understanding consumer behavior and gathering product/service data across dozens of media and interaction channels.

Marketing analytics can reveal insights on customer behavior and preferences during the customer journey. Leveraging such insights can lead to incremental revenues through better conversations with the customer, better conversion in the marketing funnel, more successful upselling and cross-selling, and higher quality products/services.

Unfortunately, many organizations do not fully integrate data into their marketing strategy. But we can kickstart your data-driven marketing initiatives!

Assess your marketing analytics maturity

At HGS Digital, we developed – and now use regularly – a maturity model (shown) to benchmark our client’s marketing analytics maturity and help them to move up the value chain.

The model has four distinct stages, and each stage is associated with a set of data and related marketing actions that will deliver strategic value.

We use this model with clients to identify and develop a set of activities that moves them to the next stage of marketing maturity.

A unified customer data platform (CDP) lets your data work for you

A CDP is a marketing system that unifies customer data in a persistent database that can be accessed by other systems.

To build a truly personalized experience, businesses need to capture and combine data from multiple channels. Integrating data creates a 360° view of the customer from the marketing perspective and allows data-driven initiatives. Since many marketing technologies are siloed, a CDP enables marketers to tie the data together across systems in real-time, enabling them to segment and target.

Hyperpersonalization—the key to unlocking what customers want

As competition intensifies in every market, marketers are challenged to design campaigns that address specific customer needs, wants, and preferences.

Personalization is the next frontier in marketing campaign design and development wherein there is a shift from viewing the market as a collection of segments to a segment of one.

To enable targeting of individual prospects and customers, a variety of qualitative and quantitative data needs to be collected across channels in real time. Let HGS Digital help with hyperpersonalization.
