The Rise of Data Driven Predictive Analytics/Sales
By Shabir Momin, MD & CTO, Zenga TV
The challenge which the brands face is that they do not know how to recognize which data to collect and how to analyze the collected data. A lot of brands are facing the same issue. Predictive analytics is very robust and dynamic in nature if the right data is accumulated and the resources can analyze it for data-driven discoveries to drive the right business strategy. It is a matter of utmost importance for any business to drive its growth manifold. Therefore, it is necessary to build the best data experience by collecting the right data along with the proper analysis to build the expected business ecosystem with the best-in-class results. The data gathered needs to align with the business objective; therefore, brands should pay extra heed to identify and incorporate the data which is valuable for the business growth. This entire practice of identifying and evaluation is again a challenge for the business as they do not know which data source to concentrate on seeking the complex business problem. They need the appropriate data to formulate the decision. Brands need to understand that data-driven culture is critical to building effective data. It requires a business objective message to be communicated to the employees to support their action. This initiative at any workplace will be ineffective if the resources lack direction and are clueless. If this process is not executed successfully, it would be a futile exercise for the business. Brands need to teach and seed their employees with data-driven culture and make it a priority with the crystal clear strategy and drive it to the successful zone. We have managed to build predictive, AI, and data mining algorithms which can not only understand the data correctly, it also provides analytics, insights and most importantly drives sales and improvements suggestions in the products and services that are being provided to the market by various brands for almost all verticals and industries. We have taken this process to the next level by also doing programmatic sales and customer engagement without human interference. The program identifies the right customer with the right fit of products and provides the proper discounts at the right time. This leads to extremely high conversation almost 90%+, unheard of in any industry. This also reduces the cost for the brand, and we no more need to spam people with tons or promotions and ads which are not relevant to them.
