Detailed customer segmentation

One of the major reasons that companies are deploying clickstream analytics is that it provides personalized segmentation based on the users' online behavior. This enables businesses to customize their services and advertisements in accordance with the user profile. This improves the quality of user interaction, increases conversion rates, and leads to higher customer loyalty.

“Clickstream analytics identifies user behavior and provides necessary data. This data, when used in mapping or predictive models, allows for detailed customer segmentation. It is important to identify the customer segments and focus the website toward their preferences to enhance the chances of a sale,” says Ujjwal Doshi, a lead analyst at Technavio for Internet and e-commerce research.

Access to real-time data

With real-time data, organizations can easily monitor the effectiveness of their marketing and sales strategies. Real-time insights can help companies to react quickly and mitigate the effects of operational challenges. This will save the businesses from falling behind their competitors in a competitive market, where customer acquisition can decide the future of the business. Competitors are continuously adopting new strategies and it is important for businesses to be aware of these and to stay ahead of the competition.

“The real-time data can also enhance the quality of the services offered to users. This can propel sales as organizations can monitor the products that are purchased by their customers and pro-actively react to upcoming opportunities. As clickstream analytics gathers large amounts of user information, advertisements can target audiences better. Customer segmentation may be based on factors such as interest, behavior, demography, or region,” says Ujjwal.

Growing penetration of e-commerce

E-commerce has grown significantly over the last few years, particularly with the provision of convenient delivery services and easy cancellation and return policies. E-commerce vendors that have high amounts of clickstream data will be able to gain more concise and accurate analysis of their markets.
