Unify Your Customer Data: Introducing the Customer Data Platform

Consolidate and unlock the power of your real-time customer data with a CDP.

The customer data platform (CDP) goes beyond just storing data. It creates a unified customer database that brings together all your real-time customer information – purchases, interactions, and more – to build a complete picture of each individual.

Unlock Customer Journeys: How a CDP Works

Dive deeper than 'What is a CDP?' and discover how it unlocks customer journeys.

A CDP gathers data from your website, email lists, CRM, and more (1st, 2nd, & 3rd party) to build detailed customer profiles. These profiles show you each customer's unique journey.

Imagine seeing Lucy's journey unfold within your CDP.

A CDP gathers data from various sources (website, email, CRM) to create individual customer profiles.

Lucy found your business on Google, then followed you on Instagram. After further interactions, she signed up for your email list and ultimately purchased a product thanks to an email campaign.

By analyzing journeys like Lucy's, your company can refine your marketing strategy and social media design. You can also understand conversion timelines, leading to more realistic expectations for social media and other marketing efforts.

CDP vs. DMP vs. CRM: Understanding the Key Differences

Unsure what a Customer Data Platform (CDP) is? Comparing it to familiar tools like CRMs and DMPs can help. By seeing how a CDP works in relation to what you already know, you'll gain a clearer understanding of its unique value proposition.

Here's a quick refresher on what CRMs and DMPs do:

  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software, like Customer Data Platforms (CDPs), gathers and stores customer information. However, unlike a CDP, a CRM concentrates solely on **intentional** customer interactions. This includes situations like when a customer calls for a quote or makes a purchase. Salesforce is a popular CRM example.
  • Data Management Platforms (DMPs) are similar to CDPs in that they collect and store customer data. However, DMPs take a broader approach, gathering information to understand general audience trends rather than focusing on individual users like a CDP. Google BigQuery is an example of a DMP.

CDPs provide a single view of your customer, allowing you to see how each touchpoint across different channels contributes to your goals. This wealth of data empowers you to identify trends and optimize your marketing strategy for maximum impact.

With a CDP, you eliminate guesswork about how your marketing channels and strategies interact. No more wasting time piecing together data – your CDP seamlessly connects the dots, saving you valuable resources and streamlining your omni-channel approach.
