Mother’s day is a crucial day in any B2C company’s calendar, as it is one of those important days in the year for your customers. A date in which you as a company could create strong engagement with them, as well as boosting your sales. In the US in the last 3 years sales in this day have grown over $5 billion.
Many companies are not yet using their full potential to create proper bondings with their clients, although it is a MUST in our world. In this article we will explain the possibilities that the current technology available could give to your company to boost your sales, through a complete customer 360 view, on a special date.
Segmentation is no longer enough
In order to generate sales on the first Sunday of May, every company send emails, announce in their webpages, offer discounts or run online advertising campaigns, among other things, depending on the basic and traditional segmentation. Do you want to stand out? Your segmentation could go a huge step further with the use of the right tools. An Intelligent CDP, will help your company segment your customers in a different way.
Usually companies segment their customers according to their age, gender, or maybe even by their affinity with the company. This way of segmenting had been enough for companies until today. With the last advances in technology this way of segmentation is just not enough. Taking into account that today’s companies have omnichannel retail and marketing strategies, there are huge data sources from where to learn from your customers.
What is Hyper-Segmentation?
All of this data available in the different channels used by your company can give you an extremely detailed definition of every single client. Imagine unifying the information you have from social media, your website, your offline selling and promotions, your call center’s data, etc.
The possibilities your company would start having in customers relationships with this data unification are huge. But an intelligent CDP does not do stay here. As well as storing, unifying, and securing this Big Data, with FLYDE your company would also be able to analyze this information with a series of easy to use applications, thus making the customer’s vision accessible to all departments of the company, technical or not.
Possibilities driven by hyper-segmentation
Going back to Mother’s day, you can start to hyper segment your customers on these special dates.
Not just in email marketing or in call centers, where having a hypersegmented view on your customer would help you targeting, choosing who to call/email, and the type of message you will send to each customer this day. Also, with this level of detail of your customer, you could even detect the role played by each customer in the whole sales proccess of a product.
For example, you could know to a huge precision if your customer is a daughter or a mother, and trace a customer journey where you could see if she is a late buyer, or someone who likes to buy gifts with time, knowing when to approach each client and maybe offering a discount for an early buyer a day before the day where she tends to buy the gift.
AI combined with hyper-segmentation
FLYDE’s possibilities with customer segmentation are not yet done. There is a fundamental part left which makes this CDP an Intelligent CDP which is the application of Artificial Intelligence through the whole process, giving the ability to the FLYDE Brain, our Intelligent Assistant, to help your company view the deepest insights of your customers.
Continuing with the examples, if your company sells flowers and FLYDE Brain detects that in a neighborhood where, for example, single-family homes predominate and you generate a large amount of sales, our assistant, after comparing with the rest of the areas, will recommend other neighborhoods with similar characteristics and a large number of potential customers so that you can improve your sales this day.
