Datavail Tech Talk

Customer Intimacy is Within Your Reach

May 20, 2017, 11 AM – 11:30 AM, Tech Pavilion

Restaurant companies don’t need to go far to understand their guests better.  Unfortunately, restaurant marketing teams are held hostage by external agencies that act as a gatekeeper to restaurant guest profile and behavior data.  Breaking through and having an effective, scalable conversation with the guest starts by creating an internal, 360-degree data view of the guest from proprietary and public data sources that marketing teams control.  In this Tech Talk, you will learn how savvy marketers take charge of their data to create actionable personas that achieve marketing communications that are three times more effective at generating business and frequency.
