  14. 14. Page 15Page 15 Develop Registration We send a personal invite to Emily to sign up for the newsletter – there’s an article about the giraffe she saw on FB. Emily registers for our newsletter providing her email address. Emily’s registration triggers a series of welcome emails. What she clicks on helps us start to identify her interests.
  15. 15. … engage … income … Multi-channel experience Emily visits Giraffe Aid website looking for information about giraffes after liking us on Facebook and signing up to the newsletter. Building knowledge She downloads the Giraffe Aid Workbook from the website – filling in more details (first name, last name, location) Developing Engagement Emily visits the online shop and saves Giraffe’s Rock t-shirt in the basket. But doesn’t buy. Prompts an email. Customer Support Emily’s ordered the wrong size. We help her sort it out – our system triggers not to ask for shop feedback until this is resolved First Purchase Emily returns to the site to buy the T-shirt she wanted. She also makes a donation via the shop. Deepening Engagement Emily asks us about sponsoring a giraffe after watching the video. We reply with our sponsor pack – she clicked on several things on the website which show us which projects may be more interesting to Emily. Regular Giver Emily sponsors Jemima Giraffe via monthly direct debit, and receives regular email updates. Every now and then our Rangers text an ‘in the field’ photo, too. We know these help to keep Emily engaged as she always opens them and responds. Engaged Advocate Emily regularly posts on social media about Jemina Giraffe, and even takes some selfies for us wearing her Giraffe’s Rock T- shirt on holiday. She’s bought Xmas cards from the shop and also sponsored a giraffe for her nephews birthday. Saying thank you We sent Emily a thank you for the donation and invited her to watch a video about how her donation has helped. We know she’s visited before so tailor the content to match interests..

  34. 34. Learn + Observe + Ask + Personalise Understand + Content + Behaviour + Response Test & Listen + A vs B vs C + If x, then y … + Timing Transition + named to known + transactional to engaged + engaged to committed Steps to build personal journeys
  35. 35. Learn + Observe + Ask + Personalise Learn • What do we know already? [name, location, interest?] • What can we find out quite easily? [ask! observe – analytics, how did they find out about us?] • What are they interested in? [what do they click on in emails?] • How can I use that information to start to personalise their experience?
  36. 36. Understand Understand + Content + Behaviour + Response • What content gains comments, likes or clicks? • Am I more likely to get comments to articles about this subject via Facebook, or via blogs? • When do people engage with us – time of day? When we post on certain topics? This plus basic learning is the start of building customer profiles – groups or segments.
  37. 37. Test and Listen Test and Learn + A vs B vs C + If x, then y … + Timing + Content + Behaviour + Response • Do I get a better response with this subject line, or that one? [A/B split] • ITTT logic rules – if this, then that …[if a customer opens and clicks on this link, the next email will contain.., if they don’t then ….] • Testing is the key! Apply the learning to your groups or segments
  38. 38. Transition Predict + named to known + transactional to engaged + engaged to committed • So now we know a name, where they are, what they read and react to and when … they are known and not anonymous. • They’ve moved from being one click transactions – book this event – to an engaged audience, with interest in what we have to say … • An engaged audience is more likely to commit – to participate, to donate, to share our vision … • Listen, test, refine to achieve transition

  41. 41. Pitfalls in building online journeys
  42. 42. • If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it: a lot of people in organisations still don’t see the harm in ‘batch & blast’ … • Think of it as customer-driven engagement or the search for commonality rather than personalisation. That’s may explain it better for some. • Drill down and build profiles based on data and behaviour, not assumptions and your internal history. • Integrated systems are your friend. You can do it without high tech tools though – just have to be very organised! • To get hold of the awesome tech you may need to prove you need it with a business case. So just start doing something to see if it works, and to build the business case and evidence for investment.
  43. 43. • Evolution not revolution - It is not always easy, so small, simple steps are by far the best approach. • Requires attention - this is continuous innovation in real life. A new way of working. • Preparation is key – of course. Focus on where you can start, build out a few, then add some more. Take time to draw out your tools and resources, data sources and triggers. • Map out potential journeys and look for ways to automate to save admin time so you can reinvest it in building on journeys.
