June 4, 2013
If your marketing team has been analyzing users by isolating and polarizing their behaviors by channel, Sailthru’s very own Neil Capel has some insight to share. Instead of treating users as separate sets of data (example: mobile-app users vs. in-store shoppers), marketers should be for integrating that cross-channel data to build a holistic view of the customer. Neil wrote in to MediaPost’s Marketing Daily Commentary to explain why this mentality of siloing is damaging to marketing efforts and inhibiting overall growth.
