Take Your CX Beyond Campaign Management Limits
Today, organizations like yours rely on traditional MarTech systems like Campaign Management Systems to create and execute personalized campaigns. However, these systems support mainly driving new sales, and don’t manage the many customer journeys that occur during the entire customer lifecycle. Context and real-time decisioning are needed to drive tangible business results.
Many marketing technology (MarTech) stacks include a campaign management system. Marketers often use a CMS to send promotional emails. While it is useful for reaching a large, wide audience, a CMS alone isn’t sufficient to improve the customer experience (CX), retention, and customer lifetime value.
What’s the Difference?
Software that aids in planning, executing and tracking marketing campaigns
A CMS includes tools for creating and executing campaigns via a variety of channels, managing social media posts, and tracking website traffic.
Customer engagement solution
with real-time decisioning
Customer journey management uses real-time customer data to analyze current behavior, predict future behavior, and send the right messages at the right time via the customer’s preferred communication channel.
What CMS’s Do Well?
A campaign management system is an efficient way to send sales-related messages to large groups of people. CMS can increase brand awareness, generate leads and drive sales.
Where CMS’s Fall Short?
Campaign management systems can’t manage journeys for the entire customer lifecycle from acquisition and onboarding to support and retention.
Email blasts alone aren’t enough to achieve meaningful outcomes.
You need CJM—the intelligent brain that analyzes data, anticipates customer needs, and guides your actions.
A CMS doesn’t manage the many customer journeys that occur during the customer lifecycle—and impact CX. A CMS focuses primarily on sales—not what comes afterward. It doesn’t address customers’ post-purchase interactions, such as contacting customer service regarding a delivery or billing problem.
A CMS-generated email may refer to someone by name, or offer a free dessert on their birthday, but personalization ends there. A CMS sends emails to customer segments (based on demographics or other basic category of segmentations)—instead of predicting what each customer needs based on browsing/purchase history and interactions with other departments. A CMS doesn’t use a real-time customer data profile to send messages addressing an individual customer’s needs or preferences, at the right time.
Sending a series of emails to thousands of consumers doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get people to act. Campaign management systems don’t provide intelligent, journey-centric decisioning. They can’t detect context and intent, predict customer needs, and determine the right communications to send customers who are on multiple different journeys (e.g., customer support and purchase).
CJM brings your systems together.
