Data is a significant entity in the digital age. It is used in almost every known marketing process. Today, it isn't easy to contact and engage prospects. More so, with the saturation of the mediums. Customers have become extremely choosy about who can talk to them and who they talk to. For this reason, it is important to use data smartly to contact them.
Database marketing has been around since the time marketing became the mainstay of customer connectivity. In the earlier days, it used to be telephone numbers; today it is the email address. Now, with database marketing, it is necessary to use it in a way that allows marketing to be personalized and effective. Data today can give you a tremendous amount of information about your prospects. Ranging from where they work, to their family history, data gives you so much information that sometimes it can be overwhelming.
To crack the code of database marketing, you need a partner who has knowledge about how data works, what can be extracted from it and how it can be translated into effective personalized marketing collaterals. This is the real benefit of database marketing. Choose a company that has worked closely with data, has deployed data driven marketing campaigns and has also seen success doing so.
To enhance your chances of creating meaningful interactions with your prospects, you need to use data effectively. Data analysis is an important aspect of the entire program. To run successful campaigns, good quality data is as important as the content you put into them. For this, data hygiene practices are mandatory.
Trying too hard to extract benefits from data can only backfire. You need to be extremely cautious when it comes to matters related to data. You need to know sources, who want to be contacted, who don't and who will be willing to listen to you.
To understand database marketing, here we have a process diagram. It shows the various steps involved in executing a database marketing campaign.
Data is the single most sought after object by marketers today. The amount of information that you can extract from a good set of data is indeed mind boggling. There are many benefits of database marketing and as a marketer you really need to be focussing on these benefits to drive higher ROI from your marketing campaigns.
Firstly, it is important to understand that the customer is the reason for the increased acceptance of inbound marketing. And as this chain goes, inbound marketing requires good quality content for it to be successful. One of the basic tenets of inbound marketing is personalization. To achieve this, you need to work on the data you have.
If you are able to segment and target prospects according to buyer personas, their needs, location etc, your chances of getting a positive response increase dramatically. Everyone loves to get what they want, quickly and efficiently. If you as a marketer is able to give this to your prospect, don't you think half your work is done already?
Only about 30% of marketers actually use data to its fullest today. This is not because they don't know the benefits; it is because you need certain processes and capabilities to actually extract benefits from the data. For this, a strong partner is sufficient. A business that has data as its core background and has helped companies achieve results from their data is what you should be looking for. It is also important to have a partner that understands and is able to use and deploy tools that analyse and produce data outputs.
