Enhanced Engagement and Marketing Personalization

Led a team in charge of turning around a large CPG company's site traffic connection to a customer match rate of 1% to 5%, resulting in real-time personalized content and a better customer experience.

A large consumer packaged goods (CPG) company could only connect 1% of its site traffic to actual customers, preventing them from delivering personalized experiences at scale. They needed a solution that would allow them to immediately recognize more of their consumers online and maintain a connection to those consumers as they continued to engage across brands and channels.

I led the team that delivered 525,000 new customers and 35 million active consumer records onboarded.

Increased Client Market Share

Collaborated with the Digital Media Solutions (DMS) team and used data to target individuals from competitors' 1:1 conquesting, resulting in 256 sales, $1.325 million profit, and a return on investment (ROI) of $2.50.

The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) wanted to drive sales of their eco-friendly model from a strategic competitor. Using Epsilon Digital Media Solutions (DMS) data assets, we could target individuals who made a vehicle deposit from the competitor. For direct 1:1 conquesting, we were able to deploy a highly targeted quick-turn opportunity.

Marketing Budget Efficiency

Collaborated cross-functionally to identify and audit omnichannel ad spending. The result was that the team reduced client ad waste by 1.9 million, allowing the client to manage their marketing budget efficiently.

A leading auto company served digital messages for multiple models across multiple vendors. However, they didn't realize that much of their budget was wasted due to poor identification. The company needed clearer customer views.
