Case study 1: Increase understanding about customers (customer segmentation)

Businesses should understand the fact that every customer is different. And that their marketing efforts would be better served if they target specific, smaller groups with messages that those consumers would find relevant and lead them to buy something.

Customer data help online store to solve the very first task in marketing: customer segmentation, which relies on identifying key differentiators that divide customers into groups that can be targeted. Online stores can base on some specific question to give suggestions for customers to leave their information:

  • Demographic information (age, race, religion, gender, family size, ethnicity, income, education level)
  • Geographic (where they live and work)
  • Psychographic (social class, lifestyle and personality characteristics)
  • Behavioral (spending, consumption, usage and desired benefits)

Customer segmentation can have a significant effect on customer management in that, by dividing customers into different groups that share similar needs, the company can market to each group differently and focus on what each kind of customer needs at any given moment.

Case study 2: Improve products and customer services

The more customer-related information that you collect, the better understanding of customers you would have. Once store owners have understood deeply about customer’s demand, characteristics and expectation, they can improve and optimize their products and services which are suitable for their target customers.

In this field, the success of a business is tied directly to the opinions and feedback of their customers. From customers feedbacks and comments, online shops can know in which step of customers journey that they have not performed well, and adversely, what is the good points they should maintain.

Moreover, customers attributes is a helpful tool to eliminate roadblocks to have better customer sales and service. No buyer likes to answer the same questions over and over again. Conversely, no business wants to deploy different resources to serve a customer merely because internal processes prevent or discourage effective internal communication.

Case study 3: Design the most effective marketing campaigns

Customers data is the treasure of any business, however, it only becomes a valuable asset when firms know how to utilize it to get the maximum profit. One of the most application of this area is using customers attributes to optimize the personal services and bring your clients awesome shopping experiences.

For online stores, they definitely can offer their customers better services by various customer care programs including:

  • Birthday gifts
  • Christmas day
  • New year holiday
  • Woman day
  • Loyalty programs
  • Email marketing

Also, personalization strategies vary depending on business characteristics. Caribou Coffee is a great example of this.
