Ravi Parmeswar Personalized Analytics

Ravi thinks the way marketing is moving right now is the model of more data and more personalized data. It’s better to look at the landscape of data we have right now and how to better connect and how best to use that for targeted marketing.

The traditional way for brand positioning marketing was using attitudinal segments. It was about what people feel and need but that is going away.

Behavioral segments are a lot more actionable. For instance, you’ll have data of what a person bought, if he bought mine or a competitors product, what else he buys, what are his media habits and what his digital habits are. With this information, you can target your market more accurately.
