Let’s say you run a women’s clothing online store and have assigned a budget for acquiring one customer as $10.
You are faced with three customers Stephanie, and Jane who are all women, and Nick who is a man who comes to your store.
1. By understanding customer behavior in different sections and basket values of their shopping session, you can drive abandon cart emails personalized to each customer by segmenting them.
Example: Stephanie can be segmented into categories “Users who visited trending section” and “Users with minimum basket value of $20”. You can either throw Stephanie with a limited offer along with products recommended for her similar to one she was looking for in the trending section.
2. You can email Jane with more dresses in the new arrivals section, which she can order and can get delivered for free along with recommending some similar options for her kids with a minimum cart value of $120 and get Jane to complete shopping with a $120 order value. With this, you get a clear understanding of marketing campaigns you can run for customers similar to Jane and make better profits.
3. Since you know Nick is a man and is having cart of two different product categories and is able to spend on premium-priced products, you can create a bundle of a dress, necklace, and shoes which is actually worth $200 but available for $150 just for a day and hence closing the deal. This will enable you also to create a good pricing strategy for high-paying clients.
