The unique advantage you, as a business will get by choosing CustomerLabs’ innovative technology is, to activate anonymous website visitor data across the ad platforms.

First-party data experiments

CustomerLabs has been advocating for first-party data since 2019, way before Google and Meta started emphasizing on its importance. Meta has spoken out loud about first-party data only recently through its report titled “The Importance of Good Data

Google has outrightly emphasized the importance of first-party data only through Performance Max Campaigns, which were launched in late 2021.

Google and BCG report has theoretically mentioned that first-party data contributes to an incremental revenue of 11%. Or doubles the increase in incremental revenue. Nothing was proven by them. We experimented with our own clients by enabling them to collect their own first-party data. We were able to prove that 1P data collected using our product would add at least around 20% revenue to businesses. However, the growth varied in the range of 10% to 27%

The below live data shows the data that shows CustomerLabs audience contributed to around 27% of the purchases!

The Technology Behind CustomerLabs CDP

CustomerLabs technology is not built in a day. It has built over time with minute attention to every detail. The product is pretty much simplified to the marketers to solve all their data problems making their lives easier.

Ideally, the moment a user enters the website, we will assign an external ID to the user. Now, as the user browses, we use external ID to record and store all their actions. We also start collecting device ID, browser ID, IP address, etc., and unify this information into one profile.

Now, segment the audience based on the behavior to activate this data on ad platforms using personalized messaging.

Below are the steps that illustrate the technology better:

How CustomerLabs CDP, a patented technology works.

Fusion For Data Collection

With an innovative approach, the technology used by CustomerLabs will be able to track all the conversion without any major data loss. The data collected will contain user parameters and behavioral data. 

CustomerLabs has direct API calls from multiple platforms which can act as a source. We also have a custom source option which allows you to pull in data from any source of your choice. For example, you can bring in data from either Salesforce CRM or Freshworks CRM or even Hubspot into CustomerLabs.

Collect your 1P data across all sources and customer touchpoints (website, CRM, subscription systems, in-store, or even a CSV file upload).

Now, all the data from various sources is collected in one single place.

Stitcher 2.0 For Data Consolidation & Profiling

All the data collected from various sources is consolidated into one profile based on the identifiers. Stitcher 2.0, our advanced identity resolution (ID resolution) technology uses multiple identifiers to merge the duplicates into one and get a complete customer journey without any breaks. This helps you understand the customer behavior and journey better with a complete 360-degree profile of a customer.

Be it a known user whose personal information such as name, mobile number, email address, location are known or an anonymous website visitor whose details are unavailable. CustomerLabs CDP creates a profile for all the users who land on the website.

The below image shows the 360-degree screenshot of how the user profile looks inside the product made using the advanced identity graph technology:

CustomerLabs 1P domain tracking helps you track all your customer data on the website without any signal loss. First party cookie stores user’s data for almost a lifetime. This extended cookie life matters amidst the rising concerns over the browsers blocking the third-party cookies, causing lack of user data to ad platforms.

Nucleus For Audience Segmentation

Based on the user behavior and your marketing strategies, you can segment the audience in any way you need. Play around with your customer data and create audience segments as you wish that help you give the marketing plans as you wish.

For example, you can create an audience segment with all those higher AOV purchases; or the purchases of a specific category of products.

If you are an eCommerce business, you can go with custom segmentation such as 

  • Abandoned the cart for more than 45 days 
  • Viewed the product but did not purchase
  • Product viewed more than 3 times 
  • Wishlisted more than ten products 

This way of building the audience helps you craft a different strategy for different behaviors to grab such an audience.

Nexor For One Click Activation

All these audience segments are directly created inside Meta Ad platform with just a one-click toggle. Generally, most CDPs have a complicated setup to send the data through APIs. Using CustomerLabs, all that hard-code is minimized and replaced with just a few clicks.

The data can be sent across multiple destinations such as Google Ads, Meta Ads, Google Analytics, or any other destination.

Helps you activate your 1P audiences along with those event segments across ad platforms and marketing platforms. For instance, you can send activate these audience segments on Meta Ads by running hyper-personalized ad campaigns; or use the audience segment to run an email marketing campaign or WhatsApp campaign using the LimeChat integration.

The Need For The Patent & The Results

Marketers have been collecting a lot of user data but are activating only a little of it. We have understood the ad platforms’ algorithms and the API documentation to sync the true first-party data and activate it with better match rates.

Our technology activates the full first-party data audience including anonymous website visitors across the ad platforms by syncing all the behavioral event data of the users to the ad platforms through the server to server integrations.

Sending the data without any loss has built signal resiliency boosting the event match quality score and custom audience match rates on Facebook, for instance.

Thus, we were able to maximize the ad campaign performance using Conversions API and other first-party data strategies.
