Why Is CDP Important?

Customer Data Platform (CDP) is the centralized database that contains all of your customers’ information. It allows you to analyze and leverage this data for targeting, segmentation, personalization and much more.


The first thing to keep in mind is that Customer Data Platforms are a tool to help you understand your customers. It helps you understand what they want and need, their behavior, the market, and the competition.

2.Customer Segments

Customer segments are a way of grouping customers based on their needs, behaviors and preferences. You can create more relevant experiences for your customers by understanding those segments. For example, if your business has two different products (like shoes or mobile phones), you can create separate customer segments based on their needs in that particular category. This will help you to understand how they shop and what messaging would resonate with them the most.

Suppose you want to target specific campaigns or offers to individual customer groups. In that case, you will find it easier with segmentation as well because it allows you to reach out only to the audience who will be interested in them.


The third dimension is interactions. This could be how many interactions you have, what kind of interactions you have and how your interactions are distributed across your customer segments, channels and time.

Start with the number of user interactions with your brand or product. This number can be calculated by counting visits to a web page where there is an opportunity to leave a rating or review, click on social posts and other similar actions.

The second dimension is what type of interaction – good or bad – leads a customer to interact with your brand when they come across it in another place, such as social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram. If a consumer sees an ad for one company but interacts with another instead, it means that the ad hasn’t created any value in driving business for its creator.


Relationships are important in CDP because they help you understand your customers. You can learn more about what they want and how to help them by talking to them directly. This is the best way to build loyalty and get more business from your customers. Relationships can also help you better understand your customers, which will help you make smarter decisions when creating products or services for them.
