A European Fashion Retailer Improved Campaign Effectiveness and Sales by 3X Using a Retail Customer Segmentation Strategy

Owned by a Swedish retail giant, our client is one of the leading fashion retailers in Europe. The client has over 200 stores spread globally with over 50+ stores located in Europe.

The Business Challenge

Most retailers today categorize their customers into different groups based on demographic data and behavioral patterns. However, a major concern revolves around the use of top-level demographic data as it often offers inaccurate insights that fail to capture deeper insights required to analyze customer demand.

What does your average customer prefer? Though it’s a simple question that every retail industry player must address, the growing customer needs and preferences have made it difficult to pin down a comprehensive answer. In reality, it is a major challenge as your customers are unique and trying to find the common elements which unite them to define your ‘average customer’ inevitably leads a vague picture of the customer base.

Owing to the competitive retail scenario there exists a growing need to address customer demands and cut down costs by better understanding the focus groups. Facing similar challenges, our client was looking at leveraging custom-built retail customer segmentation models to enhance the efficiency of its in-house segmentation solutions and increase customer engagement by implementing a truly one-to-one retail customer segmentation strategy.

Behavioral Segmentation: A Five-Minute Guide to go from Novice to An Expert

What is behavioral segmentation?

Behavioral segmentation is defined as the process of dividing the total market into smaller homogeneous groups based on customer buying behavior. This approach of market segmentation focuses more on the distinct actions of customers with regard to the product or service and less on the identity of customers. Behavioral segmentation allows you to categorize your existing and potential customers into smaller segments based on their purchase behavior. The main objective of behavioral segmentation is to identify niches and address their needs that are believed to be similar. This helps marketers to develop marketing strategies for every individual segment and create products to cater to their needs.

Market segmentation can help you analyze various customer groups and gain a competitive edge. Get in touch with our experts to know more.

Why is behavioral segmentation important?

With the competition getting fierce every day, companies are striving to win dynamic markets by designing and producing personalized products to serve the needs of their customers. Every consumer is unique, and this uniqueness is somehow based on their backgrounds and needs. This is the reason why they develop different habits in terms of buying specific products. Therefore, it becomes important for companies to aim at serving their customers based on their buying behaviors. This is where behavioral segmentation comes into the picture. One of the most important reasons why behavioral segmentation is important is because different individuals have different preferences and with this approach, businesses can yield higher profits than approaching different groups with the same marketing strategy.

BEHAVIORAL SEGMENTATION

Occasion or Timing

Based on timings and occasions, the propensity of consumers to make purchases fluctuates. There are many customers who buy on specific occasions while there are others who buy on regular personal occasions and then there are a few who buy on rare personal occasions. Understanding when a group of similar customers is highly likely to make a purchase can help companies tailor their offers and maximize their profits. Also, it is considered to be one of the most beneficial behavioral segmentation strategies for businesses in terms of gaining customer loyalty.

Usage Rate

It is very important for businesses to know how often a customer uses your product or service. This can help companies in tailoring marketing initiatives and offer every individual a personalized customer experience. With the help of this behavioral segmentation method, businesses can easily identify their most reliable customers who provide them with a bulk of consumer-generated revenue. Also, it can help in targeting such customers who make purchases regularly but not at frequent intervals. This component of behavioral segmentation also helps in identifying customers who don’t make purchases unless some discounts are offered by the company.

Customer Churn Analysis: The Key to Boost Customer Retention Rates for Businesses

customer churn analysis

Companies across industries spend most of their resources, time, and efforts on customer acquisition, despite knowing the fact that the cost of retaining an existing customer is much lower than acquiring a new one. Therefore, customer retention should be the top priority for companies. Also, for companies analyzing factors responsible for customer churn and estimating the risk associated with individual customers are both important components that help in devising a data-driven customer retention strategy. Customer churn analysis acts as a key to bring these elements together and offers insights that drive smart decision making across an organization. 

Banks, telecom companies, insurance firms, and energy services companies, are some of the businesses that often use customer churn analysis as one of their key business strategies. With the rise of businesses based on recurring revenue models, customer churn has become an important business metric for almost all companies.

Are you finding it difficult to build a predictive customer churn model? Churn analytics solutions may hold the key to success. Get in touch with our experts to know more.

Here are a few important reasons that make customer churn analysis important:

  • Customer churn analysis prevents revenue loss by saving extra costs in marketing and re-acquisition
  • The probability of selling to an existing customer is a lot higher than to a new prospect
  • Measuring the customer churn rate helps in calculating the customer lifetime value
  • Customer churn analysis helps in measuring the company’s health and long-term prospects
  • Customer churn analysis examines the rate of improvement in customer retention
  • Helps to identify customers segments that are best suited for your products or services

Steps to Enhance Your Approach To Customer Churn Analysis

Step #1: Calculate basic churn rate

The first step in customer churn analysis is to calculate the customer churn rate. There are several ways to calculate the churn rate. Customer analytics tools can help in calculating churn rate directly in real-time. This calculation not only helps in getting the quantitative metric of churn rate but can actually visualize it through the customer journey, understanding precisely the factors that lead to customer churn. Churn rate can be analyzed properly by understanding churn, which is of three types short-term, mid-term, and long-term. This duration is nothing, but the time period customers have been active before they decide to discontinue and cancel the service. To keep your customers engaged for the long-term, you need to reinforce the core value of your product or service consistently.

Customer acquisition management is a daunting task for companies. But our customer analytics solutions can help. Request a FREE proposal to know more about our portfolio of services.

 Step #2: Identify at-risk customers to reduce churn

Prevention is always better than cure, don’t you agree? Some customer segments, and more importantly, some customer behaviours predict churn more clearly than others. Customer churn analysis helps to identify these behaviours efficiently in real-time. This further helps in adopting measures to make these at-risk customers stay. Companies are leveraging customer analytics solutions like customer churn analysis that helps them enhance their ability to identify at-risk customers and thereby reduce customer churn rate. Additionally, customer churn analysis offers a data-driven understanding of customer preferences and helps to find the best way to reduce friction in specific situations. Furthermore, this can help companies to easily prioritize opportunities for improvement.

 Step #3: Focus on the entire customer journey

Customer churn analysis can provide optimum results only when the complete customer journey and experience have been analyzed well. Different customers have different experiences and customer analytics solutions can help you visualize each of them, the various touchpoints encountered, and the actions that are taken from there. If you do not analyze the entire customer journey and only focus on the last interaction, it can result in deriving inaccurate and misleading conclusions which will do nothing to stem the tide of leaving customers. Customer churn analysis can pinpoint the drivers of customer satisfaction in a way that traditional analytics solutions cannot. By analyzing and quantifying what matters most to customers, companies can consistently provide better customer experience and measure their impact on customer churn rate.

Our customized analytics dashboards help companies to devise better customer acquisition strategies. Request a FREE demo below to gain better insights.

Step #4: Discover your most profitable customers and focus on retaining  them

All customers are not equal, and while you may want to retain all, resources are not unlimited. So, you need to shift your focus on the most profitable ones first. Customer analytics solution plays a big role in this endeavour by providing a quantitative and detailed picture of the entire customer journey. It helps in customer churn analysis by interpreting how customers interacted with the product and the problems they faced at every step along the journey. Using customer churn models, companies can group their customers into segments defined by a readiness to leave, profitability, and their response to offers. This can further help in reducing customer churn rate significantly.

 Step #5: Engage with your customers at optimal times

Companies have the tendency to communicate with customers when they either want to upsell or when the customer is breathing fire. But for better customer churn analysis, companies can use several other techniques as suggested below to proactively and consistently interact with their customers:

  • Satisfaction survey – Companies can conduct short, open-ended customer surveys which let customers voice their opinions in a convenient and easy manner.
  • Social media – Customers spend most of their time on social channels. So, companies can use different social media channels to analyze their opinion and response to their product and brands.
  • Feedback bar – Companies can incorporate a feedback bar into products and mobile apps, so that it becomes easy for customers to ask questions, comment on product’s features and give their feedback.
