PAN MACMILLAN COULDN’T READ INTO THEIR CUSTOMERS CLEARLY

Due to not selling directly on their website, Pan Macmillan’s marketing team lacked a clear understanding of their consumers eCommerce journey when ultimately clicking out to buy on third-party retailers such as Amazon, Waterstones, and Foyles.

As a result, the team wanted to truly understand their customers, while providing their distributors and sellers with the correct data about their audiences. This included insights into their likelihood to purchase and subject matter interests.

Pan Macmillan turned to Mapp to:

  • Gain customer insights across all digital channels.
  • Use this real-time data to better communicate their marketing messages.
  • Personalize their content using best-in-class recommendation technology.

Pan Macmillan was inspired by the possibility of using a Customer Data Platform to unify, segment, personalize and deliver autonomous messaging around new product launches to the right audiences. With Mapp Cloud, they were able to unlock insight-led marketing to bolster their personalization.

LEVERAGING REAL-TIME INSIGHTS TO UNLOCK PERSONALIZATION FOR FUTURE SUCCESS
