You are completely pissed of. Both the customer and the brand are out of context, they are not operating on the same frequency. Advancement in technology has ensured that customers’ attention spans and patience are pruned down, they are more interested in their needs. For you to score big with your customers you need messages that resonate with them. The context apart from being comprehensible must be personalized for more conversions and ultimate sales. The message must deliver value to your target customer in real-time. There must be clarity at both ends which exactly is what conversational marketing prides in achieving. It’s practically impossible for you to send a message that will resonate to a customer you don’t know. The context will certainly be awry. There will be total confusion, no trust, and no understanding since you and the…

How to Hit Big Time With Conversational Marketing

How to Scale-Personalize Your Marketing With AI

The nature of marketing has made it absolutely necessary to embark on the survival of the fittest and this can only be done by constantly honing and upping your area of competitive advantage. Fortunately for you, however, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has recently opened the door to scale-personalize without compromise. No two customers are exactly the same, there are differences, concerns, feelings, pain points, and needs that must be addressed individually. But in a world of 7.7 billion people as of February 2019, according to the most recent United Nations estimates, it seems almost impossible to scale-personalize marketing. How do you go about attending to the different needs of these people, when everybody wants to be reckoned with? This is surely a herculean task especially now that customers want to know where, when, and how without being given excuses. Humans have constraints as well as the propensity to be inconsistent, therefore, it becomes difficult to effectively create responses that can appeal to a larger group at the level of the individual. Also, just one interaction that is out of context is enough to make you proffer the wrong response because you didn’t understand what brought about that particular interaction and in…

How to Effectively Improve Your B2B Customer Lifecycle

It’s a surefire approach that marketers who take a long-term view on their relationships with customers achieve greater ROI on their efforts. Why waste resources prospecting for new customers?  You will do yourself a lot of good focusing more on the customer lifecycle marketing as this will keep your existing consumers coming back, again and again. One thing everybody agrees on is that the best part of ABM is that it guarantees message relevancy. The more specific and resonant you can make your B2B (Business to Business) marketing, the more successful it will be.
