What are customer segmentation models and why are they important?

Customer segmentation can be a simple or a complex process. It may be undertaken manually or using predictive algorithms, and can come in many shapes and forms. The assumption underlying all segmentation modeling, however, is that within your customer database you will have groups of customers that share similar attributes, behaviors and buying habits. If you can understand how individuals within a particular segment are interacting with your products and services, then you can start to fine-tune your marketing to ensure that you can deliver what they’re looking for, and therefore achieve better engagement.

How to keep your socks (and your online & offline customer data) paired this Christmas

Keeping things tidy, unified and in one place… is this your customer data? Or your sock drawer?

During the holiday season, just as retailers expect to see a surge in shopping activity and customer data, many of us expect a wave of socks to engulf us as we open our stockings. Even the most organized people struggle to keep their sock collections in order at this time of year. On an average day, most people will have one in the sock drawer, one in the dryer, several pairs accidentally put into little Jimmy’s room, and more languishing on the radiator. With no system in place to ensure they’re correctly matched, assigned to the right person, and easy to find at a moment’s notice when needed, it’s anarchy. And with new Christmas socks set to be added any day now, the situation is only going to get worse!

Powering trustworthy customer analytics with a Customer Data Platform

Customer analytics have the potential to promote business profitability by surfacing insights which enable correct business decisions to be made, increasing customer revenue or reducing inefficiencies in the marketing, sales and customer service teams. Meaningful and accurate customer insights must be based on trustworthy, reliable customer data, yet most companies today are dealing with data that is incomplete, inconsistent, inaccurate, inaccessible or fragmented, resulting in business and marketing decisions being made that fail to yield the desired results.

In the best case scenario, a data science team or specific business users will spend precious time cleaning up the mess. In the worst case scenario, time is not spent cleaning the data and faulty data becomes the foundation for poor decisions. It’s not a pleasant choice!
