What if I told you that Behavioral Segmentation could help you to get the connected customer immediately start thinking about your Hotel when making a Direct Booking?
There are a whole lot of ways that technology has made us more connected, and it’s made us also able to connect people in ways we never considered. Take your customers, for example. You’re able to connect them by their most basic characteristics (say, male or female, married or unmarried).
But you’re also able to collect and analyze data that helps you get to know customers in other ways that are also at least as informative and insightful for future business plans. Those include psychographic and behavioral traits that groups might share.
By analyzing your customers in that way, you can better able meet them in the spaces they need to be met—offer information specific to their pain points, for example, or solutions for traits that they might share.
So, what does that behavioral marketing look like?
Why Behavioral Data Matters
If your Hotel wants to take advantage of growing trends in today’s markets, you need to understand the customers’ behavioral data.
Within effective Social Media Marketing Frameworks, two primary components help us understand customer behavioral data
On one side we have the psychological states that impact the customer journey. And on the other side, we have the content that influences the different psychological states.
Our job as Hotelier is to build effective Social Media Marketing Frameworks that balance the two-component and implement the behavioral data in a valuable and relevant context.
In today’s disruptive markets, we can no longer rely on traditional data demographic data alone. We already know that customer experience will become the most important decision trigger by 2020.
- 80% of customers say that the experience a company provides is as important as its products or services
- 57% of the customer has stopped buying from a company because a competitor provided a better experience
- 62% of customers will share a bad experience with others
With product recommendations to proactive services, customers expect engagement that reflects important micro-moment and is uniquely personalized.
- 70% of customers say connect process is very important to winning their business
This is why context is so critical today. Customer expectations are at an all-time high, and there is no sign this will slow down.
Through new advanced technology and tools, customers have unprecedented access to information that triggers their decisions and also forms their journeys.
Today’s customers seek contextualized experiences meaning their engagement with a company reflects an understanding of past actions, product usage, and a myriad of other factors.
Hotels have today a golden opportunity to connect and build quality relationships with customers.
The key is to implement a Social Media Marketing Framework that reflects these processes and trends. And at the same time gather important behavioral data throughout all micro-moments of their journey.
Connected customers are not passive, not only do they drive their journeys, they have extensive power to influence their community.
And it is very important to understand that disruptions are the result of customers being impatient and expecting real-time solutions.
