The Secret Sauce of Marketing Success: Audience Segmentation

I’m sitting at my favorite bar in Brooklyn, ready to square up after finishing my single, responsibly enjoyed beverage, when the bartender slides an iPad in front of me with my bill. What a time to be alive! No hoverboards, no cures for cancer, no flying cars, but at least I can pay for my drink with an iPad. I slide my card, scribble an unreadable signature with my fat finger, and start to hand the iPad back when I stop. Continue reading “The Secret Sauce of Marketing Success: Audience Segmentation”

That isn’t always the case.

Recommended for You: How Netflix Uses Data to Keep You on Your Couch

Netflix has over 50 million members, myself included. And they know a lot about us. No, they don’t know that I had a delicious chicken parm for lunch today, or that I’m technically on a Paleo diet but I can’t muster the strength to deny myself a hot, saucy sandwich from time to time. But they do know that I’ve been watching old episodes of 30 Rock after work. And that I watched the entire first season of Orange is the New Black over the course of two days (I think it was raining that weekend?).

What I’m trying to say is, Netflix has a lot of data. Not only are they tracking what we’re watching, but also when and where we’re watching, whether we’re watching full episodes or pausing and coming back to them. They track all these things because they know how valuable data is. How, if used well, data can improve their product, their customer experience, and of course, their bottom line.
