Behavioral marketing targets consumers based on their behavior through various websites and applications. Behavioral marketers target consumers by serving ads to segments of consumers that are predefined based on the organizations goals and objectives, as well as previously determined key performance indicators (KPIs).
Behavioral marketing makes use of web analytics, cookies, computer applications, search history and IP addresses to create individual consumer profiles, which significantly enhance your marketing capabilities. With this information the website’s web server will generate relevant advertisements that appeal to your customers.
This type of marketing can be of helpful for any retailer. Behavior-based marketing will increase the effectiveness of the marketing campaigns and help you close deals faster. Below are some ways that it can help you optimize your marketing strategy:
Increased Efficiency of Sales Teams
With behavioral marketing, your sales team will be in a better position to acquire leads that are more likely to purchase your company’s product or service due to the enhanced targeting capabilities. They, therefore, do not waste their resources and time with customers who are not as likely to purchase the product.
Holistic Customer Insights
Behavior-based marketing allows you to build a deeper understanding of your customers. Insights from them, both positive and negative, can help you in future engagements to determine what type of messaging and products they will respond to. Thus, you develop a more realistic consumer profile that allows you to not only effectively market and sell, but to create products relatable to your customers.
Effective Nurturing and Upselling
Once the customer leaves the store after a purchase, it is not the end of your marketing campaign. This could actually mark the beginning of a lifetime relationship that needs to continually be nurtured. With behavioral marketing, you are in a better position to automate your follow-up campaigns and nurture your consumer through the ideal customer lifetime cycle. You can, then, create advocates for your brand who generate leads from their recommendations because you make them feel like you know who they are and what they need.
There are an endless number of advantages to behavior-based marketing that your business should capitalize on. Incorporating behavioral marketing into your strategy will increase efficiency, cut back on time, and produce higher revenue.
