Personalized Offers: The Cure for Tired, Ineffective Promotions
Dale Hagemeyer, Partner, POI
We at the POI like to think of
personalized offers as the evolution of the trade promotion that has been steadily trying to be more surgical in its ability to move from promoting at the banner level to the store cluster to the individual store, and now to the individual person level. However, this isn’t possible through traditional vehicles such as store circulars, price
promotions, or display programs. Instead, a personalized offer relies on an expanded set of media; including direct mail, email, text, web, social, and mobile technologies.
Because they are multidimensional across
the web, email, paper, and mobile devices, personalized offers have an expanded ability to reach a unique person at a particular moment in time. This is simply because an email address
or mobile device corresponds to an individual person, unlike a blanket offer in an ad circular or at the shelf that is made to everybody who walks by.
Additionally, because personalized offers by definition are targeting an individual through use of a unique identifier, they are fully able to marry up shopper strategies with product loyalty dynamics across in-store and on-line channels.
This means a possibly different offer for a “switcher,” “loyalist,” or person who has never
tried the product. The permutations and options are endless, but the key is that past purchase behavior can be used to trigger an offer and that offer can be extended dynamically by store, day of the week, daypart, or anything else.
However, the retailer needs a mechanism-like a loyalty program or an App or an ecommerce site- to capture the
necessary customer identifier, as well as permissions, to execute
personalized offers on behalf of retailers and manufacturers.
Finally, personalized offers contain feedback loops over time to provide understanding both of offers that lead to purchases as well as those that do not. This allows for testing and refining of offers and segment strategies. It also provides for better understanding of ROI and other benefits that we will explore in
the next section. Within the feedback loops is the ability to make an offer that could be a reward for past purchases, an incentive to purchase product that might not be purchased otherwise, or to do some
other thing like provide some additional personal preferences or make an additional trip. The key lies in the attribution, or
cause-and-effect relationships, that are developed and can be analyzed for future leverage. Request your copy of this thought leadership paper including the 11 steps to succeed regardless of where you are in your journey at firstname.lastname@example.org
