Learn from your customers 

Digital engagement allows you to deliver excellent customer experiences, improving your understanding of what your customers need and what their online journeys are like. 

You can adapt more quickly and innovate for the future by using experience-driven data. At its heart will be a responsible plan of how you will secure and use customer data that is both respectful and compliant. 

However, businesses experienced 50% more cybercrime attempts in 2021, so customers are understandably concerned about how their data is captured and used. In exchange for sharing their data they will want to receive tangible benefits. Many will share some personal information if they can receive more personalized experiences but remain resistant to unnecessary data tracking. 

Build trust through collaboration 

As strong laws around data protection are implemented around the world like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), forward-thinking businesses have an opportunity to get ahead of their competitors.  

Data transparency and added control for your customers will help to build trust while  properly implemented personalization that meets your customers’ needs will drive value-added customer experiences. 

In a recent study of 7,500 people four key signals were identified as the basis for trust: humanity, transparency, reliability, and capability. Being open and honest about how your business uses data is important. According to the study, customers who perceive businesses that are reliable and competent are 1.6 times more likely to provide them with personal information. 

How Analytics helps to build trust 

When you know how people use your channels and their preferred devices you can explore new ways to improve their experiences and measure your results. 

Customer experience (CX) leaders say that managing the customer journey and delivering personalization are top priorities. Predictive analytics provides a strong foundation for your CX initiatives. 

You can use the Live Stream feature to see unprocessed data or create reports based on metrics such as traffic, conversions and paths to highlight opportunities for improvements based on unique visits, landing pages, the keywords used and the time spent on each page. 

You can then create customized reports to explore specific metrics and date ranges, for example, to identify the best performing pages and reveal the customer journeys that deliver the best conversion rates. 

Useful Analytics data 

Adobe Analytics collects data that will show you how people use and interact with your website and digital campaigns. Tags can register every page visit, the visitor’s location (IP address), and the device they used. You can then discover who came to your site and what they were looking for, where they went, and the content that engaged them. If your visitors agree to the use of cookies, you can also find out the number of times they visit your site, their favorite pages, and how long they stayed. 

You can also track specific events like clicks on certain links, images or videos or when someone completes a form. Other useful features include:
