How is Central England Co-Op collecting preference data?

Central England Co-Op uses an interactive “tinderesque” swipe survey to boost engagement and to collect customer preferences.

This swipe survey allows Central England Co-Op to build a direct relationship with their customers.

It helps them better personalise their marketing efforts, services, offers, and product recommendations.

As the results come directly from their customers, there are no intermediaries and no guesswork.

No spamming customers with ads for products they have already bought or do not intend to purchase.

The swipe survey running behind an email marketing campaign drove a 28% Click Through Rate with a 20% of surveyed customers sharing their preferences. The swipe survey is a great experience to boost engagement.

Customer preferences are then directly fired to their marketing automation platform. This enables the email marketing team to trigger personalised recommendations.

With the Odicci platform you can discover what customers intend to do or buy in the future. As the data collected is intentionally and proactively shared by customers.

Collecting customer motivations, intentions, interests and preferences at scale allows for a personalised customer experience.

To collect data required to improve personalisation, customers need to be entertained, engaged.

By leveraging the right mechanics customers will tell what products they desire, what they look for in a service, and what motivates them to purchase.

This type of data is zero party data. Zero party data is collected directly from customers. And not by using tracking pixels, cookies or cross-device identification.

As a result zero party data is accurate information, not inferred.

Interactive experience

Interactive marketing is vital for all types of businesses. Below will display how our interactive experience boosted our client British Airways in today’s case study!

British Airways (BA) is the largest airline in the United Kingdom. Earlier this year, BA partnered with Comic Relief to create their ‘Flying Start’ campaign. British Airways want to help give children in the communities which they fly to have a brighter future.

British Airways needed an interactive platform where customers could engage with their campaign and decide how their £200,000 bursary should be distributed across the UK and international charities.

The four categories were: Domestic and gender-based violence; Homelessness and street children; Employability and education using sport; and HIV and AIDS.

Participants watched a video for each category, detailing its importance to help them make their decision. After this, they chose the category they thought most needed BA’s help.

The final screen thanked participants for voting and gave them the opportunity to donate to Flying Start.
