BlogsTechTrendsHow to Optimize your Personalization Campaigns with Predictive Targeting

Predictive Targeting analytics is a method of applying a predictive model to data; learning from the experience of your organization to start predicting future events, like customer actions, is powerful.

Predictive analytics also helps improve your organizational effectiveness and efficiency, which further drives successful business outcomes.

What is predictive targeting?

It all starts with the segmentation of visitors that identifies the right target for each action you want to take.

With predictive targeting, you entrust the segmentation of your visitors to a machine-learning algorithm that feeds on all your visitor data.

By analyzing visitor’s data, the algorithm develops the ability to predict the intent of your visitors.

It also detects correlations between them with the help of micro-signals, linking to their data, which also allows you to adapt the experiment according to the profile of each user.

The predictive targeting algorithm is thus able to:

  • Detect the sensitivity of a visitor to different messages to show him the formula that will make him convert.

If some visitors are sensitive to the scarcity effect, they will be revealed “More than three items available,” while if the algorithm detects that the visitor is sensitive to the price, it will be displayed instead “Best price measured on the last five days.”

  • Detect one appetite for one product over another. On a site that sells both coats and swimsuits, you can push the category jerseys to those who have interest from the homepage without harming their experience by showing them coats.
  • Calculating the probability of belonging to a segment that is not manually definable and modelable is a priority.

The algorithm can detect the visitors of the segment “undecided” and push only the necessary incentives.

The Benefits of Predictive Targeting

  • Increase your ROI: With a precise targeting of the audience, it is possible to set up marketing actions that meet the needs of your visitors.
  • Improving the User Experience: By targeting only the visitors who are interested in your offer, you offer a consistent experience to visitors while ensuring not to degrade the course of other Internet users who are not concerned.
  • Time-Saving: Another significant advantage is that the predictive algorithms that organizations are implementing very quickly to automate all their actions and save a lot of time.
  • Know your customers: It allows you to zoom in on each segment of your audience and thus understand who among your visitors convert.
  • Gain a Competitive Advantage: Predictive targeting can enable speed and agility for your organization, which in turn can translate into a competitive advantage.
  • Optimize Marketing Productivity: With predictive analytics, marketers can see the trends and outliers and inform key insights that enable better decision-making.


In coming years, Predictive Analysis and Targeting will become more potent as machine learning improves. Both B2B and B2C companies can gain a competitive advantage in this early adoption stage by using it.
