Overview of Customer Profiling

Customer profiling is the process of studying your audience, discovering similarities and recurring themes, and using that information to develop buyer personas. A buyer persona, also known as a customer profile, is a semi-fictional representation of your ideal target customer that includes demographics, behavioral patterns, motivations, and goals.

These profiles help you understand what drives your ideal target customers to invest in a product or service. They’re used to guide marketing decisions with the goal of creating optimal campaigns to appeal to your ideal audience.

What is a customer profile used for?

Put simply, a customer profile empowers you to run more effective marketing campaigns. When you understand what your ideal customer “looks like,” you can craft campaigns that will appeal to them and discover lookalike audiences to target that may also be interested in your product.

This carries benefits such as:

More focused sales. Your sales team can understand which prospects are most likely to be interested in your products or services and focus their resources and attention appropriately.

Reduced marketing spend. By only sending communications to those segments that are most likely to respond positively, you’ll no longer be papering the town with ineffective advertisements.

Guided product decisions. Your product team can adjust your offerings to better align with the motivations, interests, and goals of those most likely to invest in them.

Improved alignment across your organization. When your entire organization has an understanding of your target audience, disparate teams can align around a similar goal and decisions can be made with the same foundation.

Customer profiling removes the guesswork from sales, product decisions, and marketing efforts alike. Continue reading to learn how AccuData can assist with profiling for the third item on this list— profiling to improve your marketing strategies.
