Just Not That Into Your CDP? Swipe Right on Intelligent Customer Engagement

Love is in the air, but is your relationship with your current Customer Data Platform (CDP) feeling a bit lackluster? This Valentine’s Day, it might be time for a breakup – with your CDP, that is! Imagine your relationship with your current CDP as a bad rom-com: it started off with high hopes, promising grand adventures in the world of customer data. You swooned over the possibilities, but reality hit harder than a poorly-timed breakup text. The sparks fizzled, the passion waned, and suddenly, you found yourself swiping left on your once-beloved CDP faster than you can say, “It’s not you, it’s your connection to all customer data and real-time mojo.”

Beyond the heartaches of your current CDP lies the promise of Blueshift. It’s not just a CDP, but a cross channel marketing solution as well; it’s the partner you’ve been searching for, ready to elevate your customer engagement game to new heights. So, this Valentine’s Day, trade in your tired old CDP for a new relationship with Blueshift, where our intelligent customer engagement platform supports both a CDP and cross-channel marketing  – love stories are waiting to be written.

The Romance Gone Cold: Recognize the Red Flags

Picture this: you and your current CDP started off strong. The promises were grand, the potential endless. But as time went on, you realized it wasn’t the magical solution it claimed to be. It couldn’t keep up with your evolving needs, and maybe it seemed like He’s Just Not That Into You.

It’s crucial to recognize the red flags in your current CDP relationship. Perhaps you’ve encountered limitations like data unification issues or a growing misalignment between customer expectations and what your CDP delivers. The lack of real-time capabilities might also be holding your marketing efforts back. Or perhaps having to use an additional platform for activating your data is slowing you down. 

Don’t worry, it’s not just you. A recent Forrester Consulting study showed that even though 66% of surveyed CDP users believe that adopting a CDP is a priority, only 10% of them think their CDP meets all of their needs, and a mere 1% of them believe their current CDP answers future requirements! That’s a lot of unhappy CDP users.

Falling Out of Love: Reasons to Move On

In the realm of CDPs, falling out of love is too common. Perhaps your current CDP can’t keep pace with your growth, stumbling when you need to scale or taking an eternity to show any real value. Extracting data feels like pulling teeth, struggling with unification issues that leave your insights scattered and incomplete. And let’s not forget, if your current CDP isn’t real-time it is, quite literally, living in the past.  

These shortcomings amount to a relationship that just can’t weather the storms of modern marketing needs. Realizing the gap between what you expect and what your CDP can deliver is the first step toward a brighter marketing future. Start on the path to choosing the right CDP for you with our 10 key considerations checklist.
