Having trouble with boosting your marketing efforts and driving more sales?
Ever since big data came into picture the world of marketing changed significantly. With millions of data being generated on a daily basis, it not only seems convenient but is equally difficult for businesses to segregate the right data that will lead them to the ideal consumer. Same goes for executing the correct strategies, it’s hardly simple.
Marketers need to use data effectively if they want to understand the target buyers or accounts – as this will give them precise and accurate personalization.
But how exactly should you implement it?
To find out your ideal target you need to ask yourself the following questions:
-Do you know what problems your product or service can fix?
-Who are most likely to face these problems?
-Are there different groups of people with different kinds of needs?
The second question is where you start breaking down to who you should be focusing on. As for the third question you may find that there’s more than one market segment, based on how these consumers use your product or service.
When it comes to increasing your outreach on social media, first realize what your overall goal with leveraging social media is. Working through an effective segmentation strategy will give you new insights about the many different ways to reach those key accounts or buyers.
Tools such as Google Analytics, Facebook Audience Insights, Youtube Analytics etc can be of help when it comes to understanding your audience. Take into account the demography, location, generation, cohort and psychographics as well.
Some of the best and proven tactics at present are paid search, display ads, content marketing, marketing communications, SEO, email and guest blogging. Knowing your ideal audience will allow you to resonate with them, produce more personalized and value-based content and be able to position your brand in front of your customers.
Remember, to be successful at target marketing, you need to use real data and facts. Also ensure to practice the following:
-See what conversations customers have about your brand on social media
-Talk to sales team about the current trends
-Conduct interviews with your former and current customers
