Greg can now use this data to deliver personalized experiences to his customers. He does this across all channels, from the website to emailers and their mobile app. This way, he creates targeted cross-channel campaigns, activates audiences in real time, and increases his business.

Unified profiles for personalized customer engagement

Adobe’s CDP creates a single customer profile in real-time. This provides Greg with a single and complete view of his customer.

These profiles are generated by securely collected and managed customer data. It also includes personally identifiable information (PII). Greg can see what his customers are interested in, what they have bought in the past, and how they interact with his company.

Greg can now deliver relevant and engaging experiences to his customers. He can send targeted emails to customers based on their interest in a particular product. He can show personalized ads to customers on social media. He can also optimize his marketing strategies and create tailored experiences. This helps him make meaningful relationships with his customers across channels and lines of his business.

Connecting with customers seamlessly for business growth

The tool lets Greg connect with his customers easily. The CDP collects data from Greg’s customers – purchase history, website activity, and social media interactions. This real-time data lets Greg create meaningful experiences with AI-powered grouping of data. For example, it can group customers who have similar purchasing behavior. Greg uses this data to plan and activate personalized experiences across channels and devices. This helps him turn his customers into real-time fans!

Real-Time CDP also helps Greg measure the success of his marketing plans. The CDP tracks how customers interact with Greg’s marketing campaigns. This data lets Greg determine which of his campaigns are most effective.

Ensuring market responsibility through data governance

Greg knows that he needs to get his customers’ consent before collecting and using their personal information (PII). This tool asks for their consent before collecting, using, or sharing their data. This lets him build trust with his customers and ensures he uses their data responsibly.

Greg protects his customers’ data with Real-time CDP’s patented privacy and customer data security tools. He can customize data labels and enforce data security.

Combining B2B and B2C data to improve customer experience

These profiles allow Greg to segment data and implement revenue-generating strategies across multiple business lines. Greg uses these profiles to create targeted marketing campaigns for B2C and B2B customers. He identifies new revenue opportunities and delivers personalized customer experiences.

Merging consumer and professional data attributes and behavior enables him to personalize content. Greg can thus provide VIP-like experiences to his customers. Moreover, he can identify specific cross-sell and up-sell opportunities to increase his revenue.
