I am the first generative AI chatbot for marketing technology professionals. I am trained with MarTech content. Here’s something somebody asked me! After that, how you can improve prompts to get even better answers from me.
Can you outline a CDP use case that targets lapsed customers? How long should the test run? What KPIs should be reported on to show success?
A use case that targets lapsed customers with a customer data platform (CDP) can be outlined as follows:
1. Use case summary: As a marketing manager, I want to re-engage lapsed customers by sending personalized email campaigns with exclusive offers and incentives to encourage them to make a purchase.
2. Business case: This use case is necessary to increase revenue by reactivating lapsed customers, improve customer retention, and drive repeat purchases.
3. Refining the summary: Identify the criteria for defining a lapsed customer (e.g., no purchase in the last 6 months). Determine the frequency and content of email campaigns to be sent. – Decide on the specific offers and incentives to be included in the campaigns.
4. Specific details: Define the exact duration of inactivity that qualifies a customer as lapsed. Determine the frequency of email campaigns and the number of emails to be sent. Specify the content, design and personalization elements of the emails. Decide on the timing and sequencing of the emails.
5. Relevant customer data and source: Retrieve customer data from the CDP, including purchase history, email engagement, and website behavior. Ensure the CDP can integrate with the email service provider (ESP) to send targeted emails.
6. Success criteria: Measure the reactivation rate of lapsed customers. Track the increase in revenue generated from reactivated customers. Monitor the click-through rate and conversion rate of the email campaigns. Analyze the engagement metrics, such as open rate and click-to-open rate.
7. Test duration: The duration of the test can vary depending on factors such as the size of the customer base, the frequency of email campaigns, and the typical purchase cycle. It is recommended to run the test for a sufficient period to gather statistically significant results, typically between four to eight weeks.
Remember, this outline serves as a starting point for defining the use case. During implementation, a more detailed document will be required to address specific technical and operational aspects.
