Here is a profile of your middle class customer in the Nigerian market today.
- Spends 40% of their hours at work and 60% at home
- Owns more than two internet connected devices (laptop, smartphone, tablet)
- Has more than one cellphone number.
- Checks their email more than 5 times a day on a computer.
- Receives email alerts instantly on their smartphone.
- Spends a good amount of time on Social Networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
There are other things at play with the customer profiling though and it differs with each customer.
- Go to bed at different times of the day.
- Some work more in the day than the evening and vice versa.
- They make serious decisions at a certain time of the day.
- They make buying decisions through a particular channel (mobile, social network, email, etc)
- Prefer your communication on one particular channel
- They might be interested in your business but they are not interested in all your products.
- Your promotions might annoy them after a while if they are not relevant to their needs.
- They ignore, delete or disregard non-personalized communication.
Here are some questions that might come after reading this:
- How does a company figure this out for each of their customers?
- What if I have 2,000+ customers can I do this for all of them?
- Maybe I have been losing business to my competitors by not engaging my customers?
The answer to the above questions is MARKETING AUTOMATION.
