Behavioral data is data that derives from customer or visitor engagement with a business or organization. There are a host of user actions that would be considered behavioral data. For online engagements, this data can include page views, video views, web form downloads, or e-commerce transactions. In-person data could include, for example, include transactions, customer card use, onsite visit info, or help desk data. Data sources include websites, mobile apps, CRM systems, MA (marketing automation) systems, call centers, billing systems, and loyalty platforms.
The definition of customer within a behavioral data context includes individual consumers, individuals within a business or organization, or entire businesses or organizations. In most cases, all data can be tied back to individual users if customer personal info is collected at some engagement point.
Collecting and analyzing behavorial data is essential for marketers to understand broader business trends and how to and where to personalize advertising, marketing, products, or offers.
