The one-hour webinar is viewable below.
From a search for a business, to the aisles they roam in the store, to the goods and services they purchase, customers’ activities are becoming user profiles, cookied paths and stored purchase history that help real-world businesses to track them — as much to retain customers as to make that customer experience better suited to the individual and less frustrating.
Forward-thinking companies are building new technologies and tools that use this big data to help stores better understand their business and their customers’ buying (and searching) behavior. These new tools are aimed at acquiring new customers in new ways, personalizing their in-store experience and anticipating their needs. This webinar will cover the offline data sources that are being integrated into online marketing tools and give examples of how they are being used to get the right message to the right customer at the right time.
