Why You Need A CDP At The Core Of Your Engagement Platform
Using customer data to fuel and improve your marketing is nothing new. The most successful companies have been doing it for years, knowing that it is critical to their success. So why are so many businesses still not reaping the full benefits of their data?
How to harness the power of your data
Decisions in marketing need to be powered by analytics and insights. But to make this work, you need to be sure that your data is accurate, accessible, and actionable. If you don’t trust your data, then you’ll never be comfortable letting it run your marketing campaigns.
As your data pours in from many different sources, it’s vital to manage all that information in an efficient way. And to be efficient, you’re going to need help from some tech. Enter the CDP.
“Customer data platforms consolidate and integrate data from multiple heterogeneous sources into a single, trusted repository that supplies accurate customer data to analytical and operational systems throughout the martech stack.” – Forrester
The main purpose of a CDP is to unify your first-, second-, and third-party data in a single place. This will allow you to easily analyze your data, gain customer knowledge, and use it to power your marketing campaigns.
A CDP at the core of your engagement platform
One of the defining features of a true CDP is that it is managed by marketers. After you’ve done the hard work of integrating all of your customer data in one place, it’s time to activate it!
Having a CDP that is directly tied to an execution platform will allow you to use customer insights in real time. Then leverage that knowledge to run customer-centric and highly personalized marketing campaigns through native channels, such as email, mobile, and web.
Imagine everything that you could do with a single platform that powered your insights and your marketing?

The multitude of data stored in our CDP enriches the profiles of known contacts. But what about unknown contacts? One of the hardest data sources to collect and correctly link back to an individual is their online browsing behavior.
Mapp collects anonymous data from the web and feeds it directly into our data store, while always being on the lookout for key identifiers to match these users. When a connection happens, the data is joined together in an individual profile to paint a more accurate picture of that customer’s journey. As a result, your marketing budget will be allocated more effectively, and your strategy will have a better impact.
