In today’s highly competitive environment, the growing emphasis on targeted marketing programs has placed increased pressure on organizations to build or overhaul their database systems, ramp up their dependence on customer understanding and fine-tune their marketing messages to customers and prospects. For many marketers, questions abound as to what data to use, the differences in data, the best uses of data, the types of database systems, and current practices in database marketing.
How well is your company utilizing its information to drive business and gain customer share? Have you developed a “state of the art” system for customer knowledge? Is your company taking full advantage of what is now available to improve customer acquisition and retention?
In a few short years, the rapid advances in technology and data collection have transformed marketing. This seminar will give you clarity in the myriad world of data providers, database maintenance, data systems and database applications.
