Having the right tool for every business process can go a long way in leveling up the productivity of your business. One of the processes that every business owner must exercise diligence is to manage and stage successful digital marketing campaigns correctly. In today’s highly technological era, marketing your products online should not be an option but a budgeted process. It’s especially essential if you’re targeting the millennial age group. It’s believed that this generation category spends almost six hours a day online, specifically on social media.  

That said, ensure that you do target marketing to the online avenues where your target audience is found. You can integrate your digital marketing tool with your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system to enhance your digital marketing campaigns. There are many benefits of CRM tools, including cost-effectiveness, better customer service administration, improved workflow, access from any device because it’s cloud-based, among other benefits.  

It has never dawned on many business owners to transform their digital marketing efforts with a CRM tool. Here are ways a CRM can impact your digital marketing efforts: 

  1. Facilitates Customer Segmentation  

You can use artificial intelligence (AI) technology to gather behavioral information about your customers online when doing your digital marketing campaigns. To that effect, you can categorize your customers into different clusters based on interests, purchase attitude, search patterns, and behaviors.

Your marketing team can send personalized marketing messages to your customers based on their interests, attitudes, purchasing patterns, and behaviors from the information generated. On top of that, you can send messages to your customers according to their location or demographics. For instance, if you introduce a new product in your production line targeted at young people, then by using their age information, you can market the product to the right audience.  

In addition, if you open a new outlet for your company in a new city or region, you can also draft a target market persona based on the buying factors of the people in that local area.  

With that said, you can have different databases on your CRM that reflect every category of your customers.  

  1. Better Management of Business Leads 

Using CRM, you can create datasheets for your business leads. Having done that, you can reach out to these leads for a one-to-one digital campaign. You need to connect with them on their social media accounts. Once you’re connected with them on that platform, you can frequently post relevant content while smoothly incorporating your product or service advertisements.  

In addition, you can send personalized emails to your leads and suggest specific products and services to them based on their searches on your website. You can also give customized attention to leads that have abandoned carts.  

A personalized email or a text message reminding someone who has an abandoned cart can help close a sale. The lead probably experienced challenges during the purchasing process, such as difficulty paying for your products online. To that, you can give them directions on how to go beyond the challenge until the sale is made.  

Additionally, a lead may not have found the online payment option that they prefer. If that option isn’t available on your website, you can plan to partner with the payment service provider to serve these categories of customers.  

  1. Increased Customer Satisfaction 

Apart from creating a CRM database for your customers’ information and products, you can also create a database that monitors your customer service calls logs. A customer service log shows what your customer liked or disliked and what you had to do to satisfy the customer. You can use the information you gather to create a training program for your customer service agents. You can also use the training program to streamline customer service workflow. As a result of streamlined customer service, customer satisfaction is a guarantee.  

  1. Streamlines Omnichannel Support 

Digital marketing takes place on different platforms. It includes social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, TikTok, and other platforms. Furthermore, you can stage your digital marketing efforts on your business website. Besides, you can also run digital marketing campaigns on YouTube.  

Keeping track of all these platforms needs good organization. You can create a database using CRM for each platform to monitor them effectively. 

  1. Improved Connectivity With Customers 

Today, it’s possible to connect with your customers on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, among others. Communication is from the company to the customers and vice versa. As a result, your customers can reach out to your businesses easily.  

In addition, since digital marketing benefits from a database from your CRM, you can store every communication from a particular client based on their names. Having done that, you can follow up on issues raised by your customers. For instance, if your customer presents a problem concerning a particular product, you should store that information for action. Once the issue has been resolved, you should contact your customer to inform them of the progress and have an entry that illustrates the closure of the matter. 

  1. Improved Business Sales 

Streamlined workflow from your customer service agents is essential in closing business sales. Customers are likely to purchase more with good and relevant customer support. Because you can use a database to monitor specific customers and leads, you can strategize on how to stage personalized marketing to better the chances of customer purchase. To that effect, a converted lead can boost your business’ revenue.  

  1. Better Decision Making 

Informed decision-making requires data. Your CRM is a repository of the data that you need to streamline processes in your digital marketing campaigns. Using the correct queries, you can organize your data correctly. In addition, you can convert your data into visualization tools, such as graphs or charts. In summary, data analysis and control are possible with a CRM to level up decision-making. 

Final Thoughts 

Digital marketing is the modern frontier to expose your products to your target audience. However, it would help if you took advantage of any other tool to boost your effectiveness. With that said, a CRM comes in handy. With a professional CRM tool, the results discussed in this article are guaranteed while implementing your digital marketing campaigns.
