Today, the need to harness data and insights is no longer a maybe. It’s a must.

Knowing your core customers—when, where and how they purchase, how to best reach them, and understanding your peers—can make or break your business. In fact, obtaining and examining these large data sets has become an indispensable tool for businesses of all types and sizes, helping increase growth by building virtuous ecosystems and enabling aggregated, de-identified privacy-compliant insights sharing to help support strategic decisions. And generating these insights in a privacy-compliant way is a priority.

Ultimately, you need to meet customers where they are to support every step of their purchasing adventure, creating a seamless experience between digital and physical channels.

The challenge: Doing so is not only difficult, it’s also time-consuming. That is where our J.P. Morgan Customer Insights solution can help.

Guide marketing and location strategies with geographic insights

In order to focus your marketing or choose the best location for your next brick-and-mortar store, you need to define who your customers are and where geographically they concentrate. What is their average ticket? What is the share of new and repeat customers? At what times do customers purchase? What is the share of locals vs. tourists? The answers to all of these questions and more can help you tailor your decision-making.

For example, you can quickly identify geographic areas with a high concentration of potential customers and no retail presence. It can also highlight opportunities to close low-performing stores when customers are willing to travel distances to make purchases. Plus, by monitoring your customers’ migration over time, you can see if marketing efforts are working as intended and identify new customer acquisition trends month-over-month for a given store, city or state.

“Customer Insights helped us shed light on client (...) purchasing characteristics. This data was useful in regard to our digital strategy and marketing messaging with the acquisition of new customers.”

Invest smarter with benchmarking insights

Investing in the future of your business is important. But making the right investments can be a game-changer. Because when you know what’s working for you—and your peers—it can guide your investments toward significant growth opportunities.
