Location-based Marketing is Powerful and Personal

Location Big Data means marketing teams map consumers, know where they are, what they are doing, how they are likely to be feeling. Build campaigns based on Big Data analysis of customer behaviour linked to AI / Artificial Intelligence. Impact on telecom, telcos, smartphone users, future of banking, future of retail, retailing trends and customer insights.  

Location-based marketing is extremely important - the end to shouting the same messages in mass marketing, with shift to whispering very personalised messages about products and services, to mobile users.  

Most e-commerce in many countries is now conducted on smartphones.  Forget about someone going online at work or at home using a desktop or portable computer.

The most important thing now is to know where your customer is located when they are on your website or using your own App, where they have been, and take a guess as to where they are going.  If you know where the customer is located, then you can make an intelligent guess about what they are doing, or how they are thinking or feeling.

Very few corporations or marketing strategies include location-based marketing, because it is difficult to deliver well.  Location-based marketing requires total insight into the customer, with the ability to respond to what the customer is doing in real time. 

Patrick Dixon has given keynote presentations at a number of Google VIP client events on social networks and multichannel marketing, as well at conferences for many of the world's largest multinationals on marketing-related issues.

Many global marketing teams are being left far behind digital / AI

Consumers are thinking and behaving in new ways, expect new things, interact differently - and are increasingly intolerant and impatient with any company that seems to be stuck in a slight time-warp.

That means a totally different approach to marketing strategy - more than just bolting on a new channel or two.  More than adjusting marketing mix.

Discover why so many marketing directors are tired of marketing. Watch the video:

Digital marketing means a different mindset altogether

A big psychological jump for marketing executives who have relied on large, successful websites backed by direct mail, print, TV, radio, e-mail and online advertising and maybe a few iPhone apps.  

Marketing often means rethinking the entire sales package, how we sell, what we sell, when we sell.  Effective marketing in future means having to go back to product design teams, and engaging direct with communities online - not just people on your own websites.

Forget multichannel consumers - think about multitasking consumers.  Omnichannel marketing strategies are not enough.

You may think you are reaching an audience with a TV advertising campaign, but of course many of them are on Facebook, or searching online, or replying to an SMS or playing games at the same time as you hope they are paying attention to you.

Trust is Everything in Marketing - Information and Revelation

The days of shouting, hype and spin are over. 

It's just too noisy with too many brands, too many distractions. 

Tomorrow's marketing campaigns need to be about information, revelation.

That means timely advice, trusted friends, personal insight, sensitive timing, sharp relevance, saving time and money.

Advice linked to what people are actually doing, where they are or what they are thinking about.

The rest is just irritating.

Combine digital marketing and print marketing

Use online tools to trigger customised print mailings to customers who fail to complete e-commerce purchases.  

Research shows 62% uplift to marketing response rates when email campaigns are combined with well-designed print marketing to the same people.

Another controlled trial of marketing methods showed abandoned e-commerce baskets falling from 63% to 49%.

The most effective print campaigns are personalised, full colour, following directly on from online activity by that customer in the previous day or two.

Marketing and call-centre disasters

Why marketing strategies can be destroyed by poor customer relationship management and robot answering machines.

Reality check in personal marketing. Keeping customer focus. Customer relations really matter when it comes to cross-selling.

Who is really owning the customer relationship?  Which department?  Which product team? Who is thinking about the overally customer experience?

How to build customer loyalty and improve customer retention programmes 

If you want better customer satisfaction ratings, approval ratings, and better Net Promoter Scores, then focus always on serving the client's needs not your own.

What clients want is better information, service and after sales support. Industry and manufacturing customer loyalty.

Retail and online customers need better staff training. Win customers and improve market share with simple leadership strategies focussed on customer needs.

Future of marketing and consumer trends: direct mail, network, email, strategies, ideas, relationship marketing, market research, consumer reports, campaign slogans.

Marketing strategies need to target each niche group - for example focus on older, affluent women.  Part of one hour global trends keynote on many consumer, lifestyle and demographic issues relating to marketing.  See also marketing to older consumers (article) and marketing to older consumers (media interview).
