As Angoss Software senior campaign marketing manager Mathew McLarnon puts it: “until recently, analytics (even predictive analytics) has largely been viewed as a numbers game, but natural language processing and the ability to conduct analysis on unstructured data – that is, words – are opening new doors for marketers.”

Three key points we like from Text Analytics: Applications for Text Analytics in Marketing:

  • Text analytics has immense potential for marketers
  • Analyzing text for insight is not new, but the ability to mine vast quantities of text quickly is changing the game for businesses
  • Don’t use natural language processing and other techniques to find what makes the company look good; rather, ask how you can use text analytics to determine what you do to drive customer interest

Bob Laurent, director of industry marketing for Alteryx, delivered this presentation at the Marketing Cloud Virtual Conference. Bob guides you through understanding how data analysts use analytics tools to gain a complete view of the customer, and how that view results in greater revenue and loyalty.

Three key points we like from Using Analytics to Drive Customer Insight, Profitability & Loyalty:

  • It is more difficult than ever to get a complete view of the customer because there is so much data from so many sources
  • Data from every customer interaction has the potential to provide deeper insight into their behavior, attitudes, and opinions
  • The majority of companies utilize customer analytics to see what customers say via the data; they then use the insights to implement customer-driven marketing strategies to improve revenue and boost loyalty

 Are you leveraging marketing analytics as effectively as you could be?
