The Value of CDPs
All modern marketing relies on customer data. To efficiently reach Africa’s consumer market, which is regarded as the fastest growing and expected to reach $2.1 trillion in expenditure by 2025, marketers need great customer insight. While data in and of itself is important, the management and use of data are the actual marketing brain that equips companies to build smart campaigns.
Older customer data management tools such as customer relationship management (CRM) software or data management platforms (DMPs), while useful, create data silos which makes it difficult for businesses to productively use all the data they have access to.
CDPs solve the problem of siloed and first-party fragmented data by unifying data to provide greater customer understanding and satisfaction. CDPs offer a unified customer view that gathers a company’s data (including first, second and third-party data) into a single comprehensive platform. Holistically, CDPs are the key to data-driven marketing.
