Refining marketing strategies: ADA's customer profiling optimizes Lotte Rental's campaigns

The Results


The Execution

Lotte, being one of the largest companies in South Korea, establishes itself across diverse industries such as financial services, industrial chemicals, IT, and more. Lotte Rental, a subsidiary, deals with a wide range of equipment for rent. ​​

Traditionally, customer knowledge at Lotte is limited to predefined features in the CRM framework, e.g., gender, age, total purchase amount, and total service years. Recognising the need for a more comprehensive understanding, the challenge lies in leveraging behavioural data obtained from web and mobile app usage — a valuable source for gaining objective insights.​​

While having detailed information about each customer’s persona and behaviour is beneficial, the focus of most marketing activities revolves around customer segments or groups with similar characteristics. The client faced the challenge of extracting unbiased and accurately categorised segments for targeted and effective marketing initiatives.​

ADA helped resolve this challenge by identifying customer behaviour traits and segmenting them. The client can tailor their marketing efforts for more effective results.​

The Approach

This sample image, already masked, illustrates 10 distinct personas and segments derived from the analysis of integrated customer data within the CDP. ​

First, we defined and extracted all aggregated data within the Customer Data Platform, with a focus on web behaviour data. This involved creating new variables to understand customer personas, such as preferred content types (video, image, text) and price sensitivity (inferred from price checks and rental contract simulation behaviour) ​​

Then, we applied auto-clustering to analyse the full spectrum of customer data variables. The final segments that hold meaningful significance from a data perspective were identified. ​

We conducted Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) to uncover distinctive characteristics for each segment. Each group with a primary persona category was labelled and categorised. ​

The derived persona segments will be used in the planning and design of future campaigns and in any customer segmentation-related task. ​
