CRM Marketing: when you know everything the consumer wants

CRM Marketing: when you know everything the consumer wants
If absolutely simple, appear at the right time in the right place with the current offer. The buyer is looking for a washing machine of a certain brand, and here you are with your "And please!" are special favorable conditions for you.

But to get into the bull's-eye without preparation anywhere, you need "compromising evidence on the client." Where he lives, age, marital status, studies /works/does not work, which brands he buys, and further down the list everything you need for a full portrait.

In this sense, CRM simplifies the life of marketers and sellers, helps to collect and segment all the information for each client, to fix its entire path from the lead to each appeal/request/purchase. And already based on this knowledge to build further relationships.

CRM marketing works when the database is counted in hundreds, thousands of customers with whom daily work is carried out.

It is mainly characteristic of the B2C sector, but it also happens in B2B if there are a lot of medium-sized clients. In other cases, with a limited circle of customers, we are dealing simply with good marketing.

The main components:

  • Loyalty programs. Special bonuses to participants of the action for certain purchase actions, cashless payments of which can then be paid for goods/services in partner stores: 1 rub. = 1 bonus rub.
  • Promotions - for specific consumer groups. On birthdays, for children, for those who have already used the services, I purchased something for regular customers, cardholders, club members, etc.
  • Discounts are the most common form. Personal, according to the promotional code, cumulative.
It is necessary for a situation when:
  • A large customer base, the impossibility of individual work with everyone.
  • There is a customer payback, i.e. his purchases justify the costs of collecting data about him, communications (letters, calls, mailings, etc.).
  • To collect and accumulate information about potential/real consumers from various sources: registration on the site, subscription to the newsletter by filling out contact details.

Once Again About the Main Thing

At the output of CRM marketing, we get a personalized message generated for the leading cocktail from the knowledge about the client and previous experience with him. And unobtrusively pushing our client to purchase an already intrigued set of gingerbread cookies (bonuses, promotions, discounts).

CRM-marketing helps to tune in to the same frequency with the consumer and catch the slightest fluctuations of what he wants when the offer is “in the subject,” and the deal ends with success.

This is what a typical CRM marketing business process looks like.
  • Development of a CRM strategy (how to segment, how to communicate and motivate) and careful study, documentation;
  • Data collection and processing;
  • Algorithms analyzing the user profile + recommendations;
  • The generation of personal messages to inform sales promotion;
  • Feedback.
All CRM marketing activities can be reduced to activation - material stimulation and information - recognition, the formation of relationships and emotional involvement - brand engagement.

The first ones are more expensive, especially if you have a large, large customer base.
