the strategy

Targeted, personalized, messaging and treatments – developed through segmentation – were key to accomplishing this mission. Consequently, this segmentation initiative was conducted to identify the most valuable customers, enabling targeted and personalized CRM efforts. The RMG team partnered with internal IT and third-party segment developer to collect and analyze key data including internal DB, Global Survey to past guests and luxury travelers.

the solution

Working closely with client internal teams, we Identified segments with highest value to client, organized data and created algorithms to define segments, as well as appending survey data to segments to understand attitudes/preferences on a segment basis. The final result was the creation of data-driven profiles, personas and journey maps for each of the 3 priority segments, which allowed us to implement and measure tests while integrating into overall marketing activation and brand planning that was coordinated with other property efforts.
