Are you getting the right returns on your brand marketing campaigns? It doesn’t matter whether you are using Facebook or Google to promote your services and improve brand loyalty, what only matters is that you do it right. With Facebook, for instance – while you can spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on marketing, what really counts is who you’re pitching your ads to. Understanding your audience and user behaviour doesn’t just require innovative marketing strategies but greater insights and you need data for that.
Big Data and Brand Campaigns
While marketing may involve a lot of art, to succeed, you need to base your marketing decisions on solid information, something that big data can help you with. Data intelligence has literally revolutionized the world of marketing and sales and changed the way branding is done. Here is an overview of how it helps your brand campaign do better:
The foundation of any marketing campaign lies in its market research – in the data that is collected to check the temperament of the market, for which the campaign is designed. Businesses can now conduct market research more quickly and efficiently using online tools and running the data that is collected through analytics tools for easier parsing of results and their implementation into the campaign. It also helps collect and analyse the data about the competition. Businesses can also refine their strategy to create a better pricing plan for improving profitability.
Big data helps in better allocation of resources and budgets dedicated towards marketing campaigns, so that they can be optimised and monitored in a better manner for the best return on investment.
Managing Brand Reputation
Big data has enabled companies to pull insights into who their customers are, where they hang out, what kind of purchases they make, how often and several other such factors. It also helps in analysing how the customer is interacting with their online store or website and with this they can create campaigns that foster better customer engagement and responsiveness which in turn will lead to more brand loyalty and customer retention. It solves the biggest challenge of marketing ie improving customer experience.
