A Quick Summary

Step 1 Seamlessly Track & Manage Audience Behavior

But what happens if a visitor decides to switch to their phone or tablet during their session?

Cross device tracking is a key pillar of GA4, ensuring a consistent user profile across devices GA4 identifies users based on their user ID. As a fallback measure, the system will then look for Google Signals, and as a last result, their Device ID.

Getting your customers into your digital ‘front porch’ is only the beginning–because we cannot rely on cookies anymore, capturing their organic first party data is pivotal to your digital marketing success. So, how do you sweeten the deal to pique their interest?

Engage directly with your customers through branded efforts, such as offering value-added content like email newsletters, loyalty programs and rewards, website account creation, sweepstakes and contests etc. The key is ensuring you are delivering real value to maximize your marketing return.

For example, consider the following:

  • Offering a 10% discount for a customer who signs up for your email CRM program with a one-time, uniquely-generated promo code.

  • Incentivizing account creation by focusing on time-savings for future orders, members-only perks for those with accounts, etc.

  • Leveraging ‘flash sales’ at the cart-level, but to claim the deal they must register.

Regularly update and enrich your CRM with data from customer interactions, ensuring you have a comprehensive view of your audience. Utilize signals from your omnichannel tracking strategy to further refine your lead nurturing and segmentation efforts.

Step 5 You Have Their Data, Now What?

Incentivizing and capturing customer data should be the beginning of your relationship. Invest in a lead nurturing program to develop lifelong relationships with your prospects.

  2. Advanced customer segmentation clusters (with propensity scores).

  3. Real-time, enriched customer profiles accompanied by marketing automation capabilities to bring to life customer-focused and journey-tailored advertising, creative, copy, landing pages, experiences and offers.
