Then try this one:

  • Run email and remarketing campaigns based on those intentions

Ideal for companies with 10,000+ leads, this hack has been shown to grow revenues by 12% to 30% and significantly improve return on ads spends (RoAS).

Why Target Existing Customers?

As the Harvard Business Review explains below, an existing customer is almost always more profitable than a new one:

“Depending on which study you believe, and what industry you’re in, acquiring a new customer is anywhere from five to 25 times more expensive than retaining an existing one. It makes sense: you don’t have to spend time and resources going out and finding a new client — you just have to keep the one you have happy. If you’re not convinced that retaining customers is so valuable, consider research done by Frederick Reichheld of Bain & Company (the inventor of the net promoter score) that shows increasing customer retention rates by 5% increases profits by 25% to 95%.”

Blasting Your Entire Database with Emails is a Waste

  • Not everyone has the same chance of buying from you in the next 30 days
  • Dead customers will not respond at all and will mark your email as spam
  • High-spenders and middle-spenders probably prefer different products

How AI can Help You

Artificial Intelligence (AI) allows you to do predictive analytics and work out the different intentions of your existing customers so you can market the right products at the right time:

  • People who will likely purchase in the next 30 days – Advertise your newest products
  • Individuals who will probably have a high average order value – Present high value items
  • Low probability of ever buying again – dead customers so not worth advertising to
