Combining known and anonymous audiences is key in cross-channel marketing programs.
Marketers often struggle with integrating data across online and offline sources into a single customer view for targeting. Your organisational structure might perpetuate siloes that result in a channel-centric approach to targeting. This often leads to waste in marketing resources and a broken brand experience for the customer.
Marketing technology platforms such as DMPs bring real-time audience targeting, cross-channel activation, and personalised experiences together for marketers as a solution that:
- Integrates CRM data, analytics, and intelligence with real-time signals from all digital channels (e.g., website, paid media, and email)
- Solves digital targeting limitations associated with performance, scale, and lack of visibility on digital user profiles.
- Allows marketers to use data across channels to trigger more coordination between email, display, and site.
- Enables the creation of an “always-on” marketing system that responds to real-time interaction and drives contextually relevant personalisation.
Merkle’s approach is comprehensive and spans from advisory services and helping clients select a platform to activating audiences through the DMP.
