Segmentation Models Are Outdated: How to Update Your Marketing Segmentation Practices - MarketingProfs

Segmentation Models Are Outdated: How to Update Your Marketing Segmentation Practices - MarketingProfs | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Marketing teams can hone their strategies and better tailor them to consumers' demands by following these five steps:

1. Transition to a scoring system. Scoring your consumers according to the behaviors relevant to the company's brand or category allows marketing teams to build and sequence dynamic consumer journeys targeting precisely the right time and place. 
2. Invest in identifying consumer need-states. Through new data sets, tracking methods, and signals in behavior data histories, marketing teams can see where the brand is able to meaningfully engage. 
3. Identify your winning and losing approaches. Using all of the above information, teams should then assess their current marketing communications to gauge how consumers receive them. 
4. Redesign efforts along the consumer journey. The more you can position your company as helpful through a consumer's journey, the higher your return. Teams need to develop multiple opportunities along the buyer's journey for prospects to show interest and display engagement—ones that focus on those "moments of need"—because it's not just at the point of purchase that you need to persuade consumers.
5. Pay attention to ethical and social boundaries. As you build needs-based and precision messaging, keep in mind the legal, moral, and social boundaries of using targeted data. Stay well within those bounds, because violating a potential buyer's trust is the easiest way to sabotage your marketing efforts.

How to Drive Product Growth with Behavioral Personas - ConversionXL

How to Drive Product Growth with Behavioral Personas - ConversionXL | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
The primary route we use to make sense of user behavior is behavioral personas. You may be familiar with cohorts based on things like date—all those users who signed up in January 2017, for instance. A behavioral persona is similar, but segments users out by patterns in how they use a product.

If you were analyzing a Gmail extension that checks the spelling and grammar of all a user’s emails, then you could imagine a few simple behavioral personas relating to usage right away:

  • High-volume emailers: users who process many more emails than the median user
  • Low-volume emailers: users who process fewer emails than the median user
You could expand this out to include people who write their emails very quickly, those who spend more time on them, the degree of broadness of the networks people have (whether they email many different people or just a few), and so on—behavioral personas are a very flexible tool.
CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

The article is a step-by-step tutorial on how to build and manage these personas.

Hard Data + Soft Science = Successful Digital Marketing Today - CMO.com

Hard Data + Soft Science = Successful Digital Marketing Today - CMO.com | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
While data can help us achieve a much deeper understanding of customer activity, an overcommitment to it can also blind us from the darker corners of human behavior that data struggles to explain.  Truth is, smart marketers have been deploying soft science for years as a way to discover, digest, and convert cold, hard information into more impactful messaging. 

Behavioral economics brings together a variety of disciplines (cognitive science, social psychology, marketing, and others) to shed more light on when, how, and, most importantly, why consumers make decisions. Fundamentally, the principles behind behavioral economics all play off of a simple reality: Consumer decision-making is 30% rational and 70% emotional. 

We can take away some lessons and tips from the core findings of behavioral economics research:

• Tapping into people’s desire for acceptance: We all adhere to social norms in an effort to fit in. Leveraging social proof can help you take advantage of this reality. 

• Recognizing that people would rather avoid a loss than make a gain: According to TrackMaven’s Rebecca Lee White, “the psychological pain from losing is twice the amount of the pleasure of a gain.” This point can be applied by adjusting how you position offers.

• Avoiding analysis paralysis: Sometimes, less is more. That’s certainly true when it comes to the number of options you present to customers.

Nine Easy Ideas on How to Perform Behavioral Segmentation - Profs | #TheMarketingTechAlert | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

Intermediate/ Digest...


Here are nine easy-to-use ideas on how to perform segmentation by activity.

1. Resend your newsletter with another subject line to those who haven't opened the previous one within a few days.

2. Resend your email campaign with a new call to action to those who opened but haven't clicked.

3. Prepare another email campaign with a completely different offer to those who haven't clicked on the previous one.

4. Offer a switch from promotional to informative and educational newsletters to those who always open but never click.

5. Research which links recipients have clicked on and send them additional information or a special offer about the issue they are especially interested in.

6. Dare to send newsletters more frequently or some extra offers to the most active clickers.

7. Change not only the subject field but also the sender name to a more personal one.

8. Send a text message to those who haven't opened your email if the campaign requires some urgent action.

9. Prepare a compelling re-engagement campaign to those who haven't opened your emails for some months.

Get More Email Opens and Clicks Using Behavioral Targeting - Marketo | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert

Get More Email Opens and Clicks Using Behavioral Targeting - Marketo | #TheMarketingAutomationAlert | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it
Knowing who your customers are is great, but knowing how they behave is even better. Their personas and demographics tell you what they might be interested in, but their behavior tells you what they definitely are interested in.


Digest...


Some basic examples of behavioral targeting:

 

Email: 

-Which emails did a consumer open and/or click on?

-Which emails did she NOT open and/or click on?

-Which type of offer does she respond to most often?

-How long ago was her last interaction with an email — three days, three weeks or three months?

-Who responds frequently, who rarely interacts? Read more about this on MarketingProfs.

 

Social

-Did a consumer mention your company on Twitter?

-Did she navigate to your site from Facebook?

-Did she share one of your messages?

 

Website: 

-Did a consumer visit your website? If so, how recently?

-What content did she download or view?

-What keywords were used to navigate to your site?

-How many pages did she view while there?

 

At Marketo, we found that our lead nurturing campaigns that use behavioral targeting have 57% higher open rates, 59% better click-to-open rates, and a whopping 147% higher overall click rate. Research from Gareth Herschel at Gartner found that event-triggered campaigns (e.g. those based on behaviors) performed five times better than traditional batch campaigns. On top of that, Forrester Research recently found that only 17% of companies assessed themselves as mature practitioners of behavioral marketing — but those mature practitioners grew revenue faster than they planned (53% versus 41%).

CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

Think of behavioral as your reaction to their action. If you consider it that way, then it's natural to take action that is relative to what your prospect/client is doing or saying or clicking. The question really is: HOW can I take the appropriate action, i.e., you need the tools in place.

Most Believe Behavioral Marketing Can Boost ROI - Marketing Charts

Most Believe Behavioral Marketing Can Boost ROI - Marketing Charts | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

A new study commissioned by Silverpop and conducted by Forrester Consulting indicates that the vast majority of marketers surveyed believe that behavioral marketing can boost their performance in a range of areas, most notably in return on investment, revenue attributable to marketing activities, and customer satisfaction and loyalty. Though the sample size is small, responses suggest that mature or transitioning behavioral marketers are indeed seeing better results than their peers.

Among B2B respondents, for example, mature/transitioning behavioral marketers estimate that 34% of their sales pipeline can be attributed to leads their marketing function has generated, compared to 26% of “immature behavioral marketers.”

Of course, you'll find a high correlation with MA usage.

Marketing Automation: The Need for a Behavior-Based Program - Profs

Marketing Automation: The Need for a Behavior-Based Program - Profs | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

Condensed...


Here are a few steps in the journey toward a buyer-centric automation strategy, which I like to call "behavioral marketing automation."

 

Segmenting, and Sending Messages, Based on Behavior: The first step of behavioral marketing automation is to determine which target audiences exhibit similar characteristics. Upon identifying clusters, you can send those groups relevant messages based on shared characteristics. Harnessing other factors related to context, like timeframe, can also boost the marketing relevance of your messages.

Driving Immediate Behavioral Messages: Once you've established your initial segments and clusters, you're ready to take things to the next level: letting contact behaviors take the wheel on an ongoing basis.

Why Behavioral Marketing, in the First Place? Sending individualized, targeted messages can seem like a daunting task, but with the Web tracking capabilities of modern marketing automation, this strategy has never been easier to execute. Moreover, why would you want to miss an opportunity to provide potential buyers with what they want, precisely when they want it?

CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

The author of the post is an evangelist for Silverpop, and Silverpop has announced behavioral marketing features as a part of its MAP (see http://sco.lt/4llWvx). This feature makes tremendous sense, and we encourage you to read David Raab's post to learn more: http://sco.lt/7rO4iP.

Customer Experience Matrix: Silverpop Announces Universal Behaviors to Provide Better Cross Channel Customer Experience

Customer Experience Matrix: Silverpop Announces Universal Behaviors to Provide Better Cross Channel Customer Experience | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

Key excerpt...


Silverpop’s new features load customer behaviors from all sources into a central database, match identities to create a unified customer view, and make the resulting information available for real-time, automated interactions across all channels. The central database and cross-channel treatments are two of the three capabilities I’ve defined for a Customer Data Platform. Silverpop falls short on the third CDP function, which is integrated predictive modeling.  But it has partners who fill that gap.

Many CDPs have been quietly maturing for several years.  Silverpop's two-year gestation cycle is a good example.  I can't say precisely why so many are emerging more or less simultaneously, but suspect a combination of business conditions and ever-more-urgent marketer needs.  The long-term drivers are clear: more marketing channels make customer attention harder to attract, spread behavior across different media, and require coordinated contacts across channels. As a result, marketers need a unified customer database, unified campaigns, and way to deliver messages across whatever channels customers use now or in the future. This is what they get from a CDP.

It’s less surprising to see another CDP system than to see it coming from Silverpop.  After all, Silverpop’s twin heritages in B2C email and B2B marketing automation both use simple data models: flat lists for email and basic lead/contact/account tables for B2B marketing automation. Both types of systems traditionally merge customer data using only email address.  Neither build a company's primary marketing database or shares data with external systems. So its quite unexpected to see Silverpop ingest data from any source, cross-reference any set of individual identifiers, offer access to the data, and send messages for delivery by other systems.

CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

We scooped this last week, and we completely agree with David Raab: did not expect to see Silverpop as the first one out of the chute to offer this. It's a game changer for them, and puts everyone else in the MAP space on the defensive. Impressive.

Now for the first time, marketers will have access to a live stream of real-time behaviors that they can easily understand and instantly integrate into highly relevant individualized campaigns.

Now they can extract individual conversations and engage each person in real time. Universal Behaviors removes any remaining barriers to the vision of delivering true one-to-one communications to limitless numbers of customers via behavioral marketing automation.”

CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

We normally do not scoop product or company announcements, but we are doing so today with two. This is one from Silverpop, which caught our eye inasmuch as we find it intriguing that they are offering a service that catches behavior from across a variety of different vendors.

The Psychology of Behavioral Marketing | Lead Views - a B2B Lead Generation Blog

The Psychology of Behavioral Marketing | Lead Views - a B2B Lead Generation Blog | The MarTech Digest | Scoop.it

Key excerpts...


People continue to browse your website, download documents, and complete forms for more information on topics that interest them. This is exactly what they have always done. The difference is that using behavioral marketing, interest and their real intent is identified. You only need to know what you’re looking for to discern between disinterested visitors and your next customer.  By knowing how they got to your site, pages visited, forms completed, content downloaded, repeat visits to your site, you can start to discern their level of interest. But how do we know that people that visit your site are showing their true intent?  The answer lies in their psychology.


...The internet provides a perceived feeling of anonymity that allows people to express themselves in ways that they might be unable to without feeling anonymous.

Now translate this to when a prospect is on your website. The pages they linger on, the links they find intriguing and click, and the documents they download are pretty accurate indicators of interest. Most likely they are not browsing your website with someone watching and therefore influencing their behavior on your site. The more they do these things on certain pages, the more interest they have. And therefore, the more likely their behaviors reflect actual interest. When you skillfully use behavioral data about the companies that visit your site, you are essentially benefiting from the positive effects of those people browsing in solitude and while feeling fairly anonymous.


CYDigital/marteq.io's insight:

Translating this into tangible action: your analytics should provide click paths and time spent per page. So then the question is: do high click paths and time spent equal high potential prospects?
