Understanding the consumer in a changing world: The modern marketing hurdle
One of the biggest challenges facing marketers today is understanding customer behavior. As the business world becomes increasingly competitive, it is more important than ever to understand what drives customers to make buying decisions and above all to maintain their loyalty.
The most common challenges they face tend to be:
- Visual understanding of user navigation: both success paths and vanishing points.
- Launched campaigns that attract many leads, but very few convert. No return on marketing investment.
- I don’t understand (or my team doesn’t understand) why the site doesn’t generate enough customer engagement.
- I am not able to measure customer engagement.
- I am not able to learn about anomalies that affect conversion with fast enough response times to be able to adapt my strategy and counteract them.
The success of any marketing (and sales) department depends to a large extent on the ability to understand customer needs and behavior. Knowing what customers want, how they buy and why they buy is critical to creating effective marketing strategies.
It also helps to identify market opportunities and spot emerging trends. By knowing customers’ preferences and needs, marketing managers can anticipate demand for new products and services and be better prepared to adapt to changes in the marketplace.
Therefore, it is essential that marketing managers focus on improving their understanding of customer behavior.
Here are some ways they can do this:
- Analyze data: Use data analytics tools to gain insights into how customers interact with your brand. This can include demographics, buying patterns, preferences and opinions.
- Listen to customers: Ask questions and pay attention to the answers. Take opportunities to interact with customers, whether in person, on the phone or online. Take the time to listen and respond to customer questions and concerns. You can also use personalization in more advanced states to gain superior customer insight.
- Leverage technology: Technology can help collect and analyze customer data; it can be a valuable tool for understanding customer behavior. Web and mobile analytics solutions, for example, can analyze user behavior on your website and mobile apps, providing valuable insights into how customers interact with your brand.
By understanding how customers think, feel and make decisions, marketing managers can create more relevant and compelling advertising messages, design products and services that better meet customer needs and improve the overall customer experience.
