Perhaps there's a way for us to actually mine the data we have about a customer, or a situation, and present results that are more relevant and useful
Please, just no.
I have a dream that one day people who run companies and make these decisions on marketing come to the understanding that people hate it. Maybe we need to take every marketing employee, every sales employee, and every college employee involved with this, and place them in a very small room and play TV ads, radio ads, have telemarketers call them constantly ...
I am inundated with unwanted interuptions constantly from companies that not only want to sell me something, they feel it is acceptable to lie about it and say they aren't selling anything, they are trying to help me! Honestly, I cannot think of a single time that someone made an attempt to sell me something that I actually needed! When I want something, I know where the store is, I know how to search for it on Amazon or Google, I am perfectly capable of buying what I need without assistance!
Magazine ads targeted to readers, like those in trade magazines, at least make some sense, but even those have a very low success rate. Less than 1% of direct marketing leads to a sale.
Trying to improve the hit rate, and even quadrupling that rate - which is not a reasonable goal - will only serve to cause an increase in attempts, and more annoyances.
