Understanding Changing Customer Needs Through Analytics

Customer Needs Through Analytics

Analytics, Customer Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence – we come across these terms often, don’t we? Well, all of them are synonyms of each other (you might already know this).

Analytics – as the name suggests – are tools that convey the ‘feelings’ of a customer (prospective or existing) to business owner(s) and act as a mentor while they make strategic decisions.

Now, customer behaviour could be literally anything – likes, dislikes, brand awareness, affinity for a specific product, and what not! Let me give you my own example. Recently, I was looking for a flight to my hometown. And I have the habit of checking out the offers first, then the fares. Unfortunately, there were none. So, I closed the site. And guess what! Within 5 minutes I got an offer of flat 20% OFF on airfare, from the same site.

This was a simple one; there are detailed case-studies available too.

The point is that small and big marketers alike take customer loyalty very seriously and go out of their way to cash in on it. Furthermore, retail analytics has picked up the pace and will prove to be a game-changer for the retail sector in the near future.

4 Reasons Why No One Is Reading Your Content?

Reading your content

A study conducted by DejanSEO found that four in five people skip over content just to read the relevant sections which interested them. That’s a significant percentage of people that barely skim over your written content.  

We now live in an era where most readers like yourself are lazy.  

Pure simple fact. 

We want the answers upfront to our query. If we want an answer to something, our instinctive nature tells us to hop onto Google and ask Google the question. 

We then get presented with a whole string of search results but what really matters is the first top 3 results. Let’s say we click on the first one… and begin by reading the title and then the first paragraph. If the answer is within the title, then great! My search query has been answered and I don’t need to read the rest of your content. But on the other hand, if it’s not there then I’ll be (somewhat) forced to read further just to gauge out the answer. And it could be daunting.  

The truth is, most authors don’t know how to write for their website. They focus mainly on writing for the search engines and what they fail to realize is the fact that they should be writing for humans. Yes. Both you and I are regular consumers of content, on a daily basis.  

The amount of strain content causes for the average human soul is horrendous. That’s if we can’t find the answer within your content. So why should we stay on and read your content if it’s not interesting… at all?

Forget Search Engine Optimization – Here’s Why You Need to Focus on Emotional Engine Optimization

Google AdWords is an interesting platform for digital marketers. There is a lot of emphasis placed upon targeting keywords and ‘playing the game’. We’re all looking for ways to rank that little bit higher in the auction and get the CPC (cost-per-click) down, whilst raising the CTR (click-through-rate).

The thing is, whilst it is important to try and win that coveted top spot in the auction, we get so wrapped up in the battle that we forget this important truth: Search engines don’t click, people do.

You may have noticed that I haven’t mentioned conversions yet – This is because the actual ads themselves aren’t what drives conversions. I’ve seen many Google AdWords campaigns with a ridiculously high CTR, but no conversions. That’s because there are 2 parts to the campaign:

  • The ad stage (this includes targeted keywords, ad copy, extensions and more), which wins the click and leads you onto…
  • The landing page stage, which is where people end up if your advert has sparked enough curiosity. If your landing page isn’t up to scratch, people won’t convert.

The important part to notice here is that in order to get the conversion, you obviously need to get people to click on your ad and get to that second stage. It all starts with a click.
