Customer data is the foundation

Your marketing automation strategies can only be as good as your customer data. Because the data determines how well you know the customers, how relevant the content can be, and how specific you can be when you set entering criteria for a workflow.

By understanding and combining customer data – such as demographics, transactions, or browsing history – you will have the best chance of getting (and keeping) your customer’s attention. Your target audience might appear quite similar on paper, but in reality, it consists of different individuals with different behaviors and preferences. Thanks to available data you can build automation workflows that give the customer the right product recommendations, services, and information.
