If you’re trying to maximize the performance of your digital marketing campaigns, capturing data from your website which I call “online variables” goes far beyond the traditional champion/challenger approach of retargeting based on user behaviour on the website. What limits user behaviour on the website is the fact that you can only personalise the user experience at a segment level and not at a 1:1 personalised level.

ONLINE VARIABLES

For an insurance company, there are very user specific “Online Variables” which can be used for “1:1 Personalization” from the Premium Calculator or Quote pages.

  • Gender
  • Date of Birth
  • Tobacco – Yes or No
  • Life Cover Amount
  • Payment Term – Regular, Single, Limited Pay
  • Policy Term – Number of Years
  • Payment Frequency – Yearly, Half Yearly or Monthly
  • Premium Amount – Yearly, Half Yearly or Monthly

USE CASES FOR INSURANCE

Here are some of the “Insurance” specific use cases which can be created using the above “Online Variables” when captured from the Premium Calculator or Quote pages on insurance website.

Using your user specific online data is key to drive new acquisition during this peak season with 1:1 Omni Channel Personalized engagement. If you are unable to capture these insights and data points from your website or if you are not using it to acquire new customers, you might be driving up your CoA by not targeting your audience with relevant 1:1 messaging on your marketing channels.
