popup-image

The most popular use for a website marketing with popup is to gain email subscribers. That’s because list building is an important element in any online business. It’s the key to growing your audience and staying connected with them, and it’s a sign that you’ve earned their trust. When someone visits your website some make their way back, but many don’t. If you collect their email address, though, you can continue to communicate with them.

Even though popups are one of the best ways to grow your email list, they can also be used to promote various services, new products, surveys, and more. They’re a really great marketing tool for a variety of things and shouldn’t be overlooked.

But there’s a problem: a lot of people complain about them.

Popups are often seen as super annoying, but they don’t have to be. The truth is, most big blogs and websites use them because they work. So really, popups aren’t annoying in general, but because they’re often poorly timed. Continue reading

How Cloud-Based Predictive Analytics Can Up Your Marketing Game

Predictive Analytics

Predictive analytics is not always easy to understand, despite being a relatively simple concept. In its most basic definition, predictive analytics mines data to find patterns and assess the probability of people’s actions. In business, your marketing team can use predictive analytics to better understand your target market and devise campaigns to better suit their needs.

However, there is no guarantee that your customers will act as predicted — no pun intended — or that the pattern will continue. The following are just a few ways you can better understand predictive analytics and how your marketing team can use it.

Prioritize Leads

One of the main ways marketing teams are using predictive analytics is to comb big data for patterns on leads and sales patterns. You can use your data to see who is buying your product or service. But, more importantly, you can finally determine why. You then can use this information to target other prospects, or upsell or cross-sell current customers with additional relevant products or services that fit their needs.

In an interview with PC Mag, Allison Snow, senior analyst of B2B marketing at Forrester, explains that predictive analytics enable marketers to use science and math to prioritize their leads through specific criteria and weightings. Snow explained how this helps companies identify productive accounts, target upsell campaigns, and spend less time on accounts that don’t have a good probability of buying.

Identify Similar Customers

Once you identify how your previous and current customers are buying, you can extrapolate that data out to reach new customers. While it’s not an exact science — and results can vary — recognizing patterns and customer behavior can help you predict how similar markets, audiences and industries will behave.

A good example of this type of data and campaign is Facebook’s Lookalike Audiences. With this tool, you’re able to upload data about your current customers or target audience and then find prospects who resemble that buyer persona. You also can track individuals who visit certain Web pages or who like your page and find similar audiences that way. Facebook uses your data to target people who behave in similar ways or fit into a specific pattern, all of which helps you more effectively grow your customer base.

Personalize Campaigns

Another way you can up your marketing game with predictive analytics is to create personalized campaigns for your target market. By understanding patterns in their buying behavior — and what they expect from your product — you can use that specific information in your campaigns to make sure every piece is relevant to them.

Companies can create a more relevant and informed content strategy for their advertising, email, social and content marketing campaigns when they have greater insight into what their customers are after. Become an expert in several areas that best target your various audiences and hit on the information they want to know.

Predictive analytics can be used in many other ways, both in your marketing department and in other areas of your business. With enough data and the tools to recognize patterns, you can better forecast sales, stocking needs and production costs. Even though you’re extrapolating data and can’t guarantee success, predictive analytics is a good starting point to improve your processes in understanding your past, current and future customers.
