The term ‘behavioral marketing’ is being increasingly heard across the world these days. The entire concept of behavioral marketing involves noticing consumer’s online behavior and then target them using advertising which is tailor made for their online conduct. It goes needless to say that the whole process is done unobserved by the consumer.
It won’t be a misnomer to say that the advent of internet has completely changed the business scene around the world. No longer are physical and geographical barriers a hindrance for communicating in a fast and reliable manner. These days, after the advent of the internet, it has almost become imperative for companies to concentrate on online marketing. The internet has become one of the most important media for advertising. A major chunk of a company’s revenue can be generated through online marketing and advertising. This is where behavioral marketing steps in with its proven capabilities.
There is intense competition prevailing over the internet, with thousands of companies trying to woo consumers to buy several thousands of products and services. This being the case, it is not necessary that a consumer goes through your particular website or online advertisement. With behavioral marketing though, you can target specific consumers, who could drive your business growth.
In today’s competitive business scenario behavioral marketing makes sense for both advertisers and marketers alike since they can target specific core groups, instead of frittering away money and energy without any focus. This in turn converts to tremendous savings of both efforts and money for advertisers and marketers. Importantly apart from saving significant amounts of money on other forms of advertisements, behavioral marketing also results in increased profits.
The entire concept of behavioral marketing focuses on targeting the consumers online behavior, rather than go by the page contents that they view. Advertisers and marketers collect data from various sources including click stream data and IP details in order to ascertain the internet behavior of their target customers. Once any targeted internet user visits a particular web page of interest to him or her, they are then targeted though advertisements that is specially created using a ‘run-of-site’ or ROS placement.
