Hello, I’m Henry Smith.Imagine how much better it would be if every marketing message you received was in at least some way relevant to you.
So in this presentation I am going to be introducing a new king. Not that Bill Gates was wrong, but I am sure that the marketers who do not embrace their data when communicating to customers will not remain competitive in the ever changing world.I will be coveringWhy data is kingWhat data can be used to drive your businessConverting data into customer intelligenceDefining the customer journey
Before I do, I’d like to tell you about Emailvision. We deliver SAAS to help organisations develop better email / mobile and social campaign management strategy based on customer intelligence.
We are a global provider with offices in 19 countries, servicing thousands of clients from all over the world, some of which I will use examples of in this presentation.
What makes us different is our culture, we are passionate about everything we do, what we achieve with our clients, our pioneering technology and our plan to climb a major peak in each continent. 15 climbed Mont Blanc last October, this year we will climb to the peak of Kilimanjaro.We aim to give our customers the same sense of achievement in realizing their digital marketing potential.
Humans have evolved into a species of traders, this gives us the power to have many things that otherwise we could not. Where to source these things from is our choice and comes down to a number of key factors. For thousands of years, when we have traded, we have sought out people we trust, people we know who can provide us with what we want at the right price. We build relationships with these people and form bonds of business. You will notice this in the way you shop in the real world – I always go to my local butcher, he knows me, the things I normally buy and he offers me things I like, on special offer, to maximise my basket value. My lifetime value with my butcher is built on the relationship he has built with me through understanding.
In the modern world, things are different for the consumer. We have technology at our fingertips which allow us to instantly access a whole host of providers of products and services from all over the world. This amongst instant advertising, pop-ups, review sites, social commentary and opinion in blogs and other social content. Marketers know that despite this the core values which we have learnt over thousands of years are still important.
In commercial agreements relationships are important. They require mutual benefit, typically meaning improving somone’s life in return for money. Be it solutions, enjoyment, leisure. Personal knowledge is also important, knowing someone is know their habits, likes, dislikes, what film, what food, their Birthday, their sense of humour. This ultimately builds loyal trusting relationships.That is why Data is King, because it is what you know about your customers which can help you to build better trust, mutual benefits and long term relationships
That it why data is king. Most businesses are collecting vast amounts of data. Already you will collecting large quantities of very useful data about your:Customers names, addresses, birthdays, email domains, lifestages and other geodemographics - examplesCommunicationsWhen you send an email, opens, click through, conversions, SMSTransactionsWhat they buy, in what category, brand, when, how often etc.Media and Content InteractionsBrowsing products, abandoning baskets, social referral, blogging or reviewing
But data is no good on its own, you must turn it into actionable customer intelligence to get the vale from it.
Why is relevance increasingly important?Inbox overload – how are consumers dealing with it?
The pressure to be relevant iscoming from all angles not just from customers / not just to achieveimproveresponse rates but also from ISPs. They have decided to protecttheircustomers from the sometimesoverwhelmingnumber of messages theyreceive.Yahoo stat source : http://www.ymailblog.com/blog/2010/05/it%E2%80%99s-official-no-one-fights-spam-harder-smarter-or-better-than-yahoo-mail/
Also, modern consumers are getting used to the personalisation power of the internet and expect brands to be able to communicate in a relevant way to them.
The importance of relevance for email marketing is summed up clearly in Marketing Sherpa’s recent report
This is supported when we survey our clients
But many companies do not feel that they are fully exploiting the potential of their data.Why?
Why it is hard to leverage the value of your data
This is why it is important to empower marketers with data in a way that they can use it.
Please excuse the stereotypes I use to illustrate a point, but Marketing and IT are often separate, IT with control over the data, marketing running campaigns
We can see the wall illustrated by the Forrester research above
The challenge is to find ways to help marketing and IT work better together
To get the best value from your data you need leadership for a cultural change, putting the customer not product first.You need people and processes to develop and use this insightBest of all tools which make it easy for marketers to get insight and use it for targeted marketing
Insight provides detailed and accurate profiling and segmentation of customers and buying behaviour....EnablingMore frequent marketing customer dialogueHigher levels of relevance, appropriateness, and timelinessLower mailing / contact volumesResulting inReduction in overall marketing costHigher Response RateHigher levels of customer satisfactionLower Levels of customer disengagement / un-subscription / lapseHigher value customer relationship
A client example of how powerful this can be
This can result in a series of stages defined by customer behaviourMarketing can be pro-actively used to directed and progress the customer at timesInsight is required to develop all marketing approachesSpend – absolute / spend per interaction / maximum / minimumNumber of purchases / visits / tripsTime between purchases / visits / tripsNumber of distinct product brands / groups heldMarketing can intervene at appropriate times with an appropriate offer / communicationCustomer Journey Management Driven by InsightClassification of customers into one of the stagesProfiling of customers at each stageDevelopment of KPIs at each stageIdentification of Customer BehaviourUnderstand when customers quickly develop beyond expected levels of behaviourUnderstand when customers regress or lapseUnderstanding triggers for progression through journeyUnderstand how to use marketing approaches to drive progression
Here I am showing you some of the data that you are likely to be able to use to develop insight driven campaign straight away:Acquisition – Days Since Join – Welcome programme
Types of lifecycle campaigns
Best practice Example: Customers visit Office.co.uk and sign up to their email programme via a registration page. Apart from email address, title and name Office allows the customer to decide what additional profile information they will provide. Title field is used to segment our list by gender (refer to Office registration page image)
The objective of this email is to welcome customers to Office as well as highlight the preference centre and increase customer profile data. The customer is incentivised to add their preferences by entry to a free prize draw to win £100 worth of Office shoes.
The preference centre informs customers that by adding their profile and interests information Office will send them targeted and relevant emails providing further encouragement. The data fields requested fall into 3 main areas; customer profile information, and customer interests by category i.e. Womens and brand i.e. UGG Australia. The preference centre also provides customers with the option to update their email and mobile subscriptions. Results;Welcome Mail on average achieves open rates of 39% and CTR of 19% The increase in customer preference information has enabled the implementation of segmented emails such as new store opening based on customer postcode. Future plans; Promote the preference centre to our entire customer base to further extend the profile information we hold on our customersImplement additional segmented campaigns such as brand new season alerts based on customer brand interests
This iswhat Beauté Privée nowdoeswith Customer Intelligence
Another way to encourage interaction with email is to ask for reviews for products which people have purchased with links through to social sites such as Facebook
Targeting active subscribers for recommend a friend referrals
Once friends had requested free magazine they were asked to like on Facebook so their friends could receive one too
Collect and analyse your data, it is a very valuable assetCreate actionable customer insight Use this insight to drive timely and meaningful relevance in customer lifecycle engagements

I think this is the new tagline.
