Our insights share how the right CX tools make customers’ lives richer and more fulfilling and strengthen a company’s economics by holding down costs and securing new revenue streams.
Customer behavior analysis provides insights into the variables that influence an audience on a digital interface. It gives an idea of the motives, priorities and decision-making methods being considered during the customer's digital journey.
How companies use online/mobile behavior tracking
- Identify correlations between segments that inform customer prioritization segment value.
- Identify key challenges and friction points across stages of the customer journey that lead to detractor behavior.
- Identify surprising or delightful moments during online user activity that create promoters and drive share of voice.
- Automate insights by using machine learning to go beyond correlations and better understand causality.
- Improve the customer's overall value by identifying ideal customer characteristics.
- Improve the level of personalization of content, online advertising, products and services.
- Develop new product and service offerings in line with emerging trends.
- Step-by-step implementation. It is essential to do things in the right order; clearly define the business and analytics goals underlying the implementation of behavior tracking.
- Define the right key performance indicators (KPIs). Companies can easily be overwhelmed by the data received from such tools; defining and aligning stakeholders on KPIs helps focus investments on what matters most.
- Dig deeper. Using a behavior tracker is only one step when analyzing customer behaviors. These analyses should be complemented by retention analysis, acquisition improvement or next-best-action or propensity models.
- Quality insights from data. Companies should define how to use artificial intelligence and machine learning models that can synthesize data and learn from consumer behavior to define better qualitative insights.
- Define Elements of Value®. Define a process that uses machine learning to assign specific Element of Value based on verbatim feedback.
