Experian have recently re –launched their comprehensive Mosaic Segmentation tool. For those who are not familiar with Mosaic, it is a consumer classification tool that benchmarks the UK population on over 450 data variables. They now have access to even more data that goes beyond demographics to include lifestyle and consumer behaviour. To make it easier to digest some of the data they have shared some insights from the new segmentation tool in an infographic.
People love email
The Rocketseed office was not surprised to see that consumers 1st choice of communication channel when being contacted by companies is email. In fact it is the 1st choice of 70% of consumers compared to 16% for post, 5% landline phone, 4% mobile call, and 2% sms/text.
So if email is the preferred communication channel, it makes a lot of sense to stop and think about what other email opportunities you can tap into. We all know that it can still be hard to achieve high open rates and drive engagement, so how else can we make email an even more effective channel?
Thinking outside the inbox
Well most people will jump straight away to thinking about email marketing, such as their newsletters, cart abandonment or transactional emails. But what if there was another email opportunity that could give you 4 times more engagement than normal email marketing? What if that channel was already used in your company and could be easily activated?
Email media: Your employee emails reach further than you think
Think about all the thousands of one on one emails that are happening every day, in every department, across your organisation.. You may be surprised to hear an organisation with only 150 employees would typically send around 150,000 emails a month. This equates to an Employee Marketing Opportunity (EMO) of 1.8 million annually.
That is a huge opportunity to deliver targeted, relevant branding and messaging to your customers. It is also a significant opportunity to capture more data on your customer’ interests, and profit from a valuable customer touchpoint. All you have to do is add Rocketseed.
Rocketseed email media software works with your current email platform, so you just carry on sending emails as normal – BUT now you have a trusted channel for targeted, measurable marketing.
What do companies use it for?
It depends on their objectives and goals. You may want to drive more web traffic, improve your customer experience, find a way to reach people who are not on your database. You may also want to monitor customer service, build your database, or cross and upsell.
