Consumer modelling

Predictive analytics to maximise marketing efficiency

Organisations constantly strive to make their marketing activity more effective. In a world where vast quantities of data are created every second, it can be difficult to cut through the noise and focus on the most relevant and powerful insights. By building a clear view of customers, organisations can understand how people interact with their brand and then use this insight to predict future behaviour and target the right people.

Consumer modelling and the customer lifecycle

By using a wide range of data to create statistical models it is possible to predict how someone is likely to behave.  This insight allows marketers to create strategies which enhance the customer experience whilst ensuring the most effective and efficient use of the marketing budget.

  • Identify people that are likely to be interested in your  company and solutions
  • Talk to people at the right time, with the right message through the best channel
  • Spot customers who you want to stay in touch with so that you can take steps to engage them further

    The most important aspect of marketing is understanding your customers; their behaviours, preferences and drivers. This is paramount to offering a great customer experience and forming meaningful relationships. By offering tailored communications, products and services to people's needs, you provide extra value every time you engage. This then begs the question; how do you begin to understand what your different customers desire?

    Location planning

    Use insight to make the right location decisions

    Identifying the best locations when making valuable bricks and mortar investment is hugely important, and it's crucial those decisions are based on hard facts. In our digital world it's more important than ever that location planning decisions are considered as part of a multi-channel strategy. A physical visit to a store needs to fit into the wider customer journey. It's highly unlikely someone making a purchase in store hasn't interacted on some level with some of your marketing.

    Location planning services

    Integrate geographic data, proven analytical techniques and technology to make data-informed decisions about locations, including:

  • Optimise location targeting through understanding catchment area profiles
  • Predict demand for goods & services across geographical areas
  • Assess the competition and their impact on available opportunity
  • Analyse what drives performance and benchmark existing locations
  • Expand site networks by assessing the potential of new locations
  • Consumer profiling

    Understand your audience

    How well do you know your customers? Understanding customers is the critical component to delivering accurate, relevant and effective customer experiences.

    Knowledge of the characteristics of their customers allows marketers to identify new prospects with similar wants, needs and interests

    Simple information such as age, gender and location can be really useful when deciding who would be interested in  products or services. This level of detail helps you to communicate effectively and most importantly improves the consistency and quality of the experience you are able to deliver to your customers. Improving both the effectiveness and efficiency of your marketing efforts.

    Consumer profiling benefits

    Building a strong understanding of your customer drives marketing efficiency and allows you to talk to them about products they are likely to be interested in. With this information you can focus on delivering accurate, relevant and interesting customer experiences.

  • Identify and visualise the shared characteristics amongst individuals within your audiences
  • Create tailor made groupings on a range of characteristics such as geography, demographics, consumer and financial propensities
  • Make data-informed decisions to have better conversations with your customers about products they would actually be interested in
  • Algorithmic attribution

    Measure the impact of each marketing channel

    As digital channels broaden and cross-channel marketing becomes more complex, accurately assessing the impact of each marketing channel becomes an even bigger challenge. Understanding how and when people engage is essential for creating great customer experiences.

    This customer journey creates a map of interactions and streamlining the customer journey creates a smoother experience. However, when it comes to attribution, many brands and organisations still operate a last-click model which gives all the credit to the final interaction. This can really skew the way we view customer journeys and creates challenges to proving the ROI of marketing efforts.

    By attributing incorrectly or without all the information marketers are potentially giveing credit to the wrong channel when in fact an individual prefers a different channel. This could take the focus away from what is best for your customer.

    Algorithmic attribution model

    It is now possible to systematically measure the influence of each channel on your digital marketing campaigns. This allows marketers to recognise the value of each channel, prove ROI and use data-informed decision making to reinvest budget intelligently.

  • Measure the impact of each digital channel on a purchase decision
  • Evaluate different campaign scenarios, allowing for business constraints such as budgets and targets
  • Create a platform to make data-informed decisions to reinvest with channels that your customer prefer
  • Find out how we can help your business thrive
