Understanding the “Why” of Customer Behavior
Analyzing consumer behavioral patterns alone does not suffice the need and intent of CPG data analytics. CPG manufacturers also need to understand the factors driving consumer behaviors. What do consumers want and what drives their choices? CPG manufacturers need to look beyond big data sets generated by social media platforms and online shopping habits and penetrate the mindset of engaged individuals from relevant demographics to stay ahead of the curve and thrive in the future. Social listening can tell what users are doing but they don’t necessarily reveal the reasons behind their behavior. We believe an in-depth understanding of customers’ motivations and attitudes is truly the ‘secret sauce’ in contextualizing behavioral data for greater predictive impact. This can help both retailers and CPG manufacturers in driving better business decisions.

The growing competitive pressures have prompted CPG manufacturers to balance their need for data with the growing concerns for privacy. CPG manufacturers risk losing the trust of valued consumers if they feel that hyper-personalized promotions blur the line between helpful familiarity and surveillance. The strategic application of CPG analytics can give CPG manufacturers a competitive advantage, but the trust of the consumer is equally important. Therefore, companies in the CPG industry should strive to use CPG analytics in a way that values the privacy of customers. This can, further, help CPG companies to develop an organizational model that can deliver a smoother and more enjoyable experience to their digitally empowered customers.
