Zeta Global: Person-Based Marketing Powered by Artificial Intelligence

Consumers have changed over time. There are more devices in the market and in our lives than ever before. Consumers are empowered and in-touch with technology every day. With so much of connected devices, the consumer behavior is different than it was in past. In the past, it was not possible to cater to individual demands. But today, the marketing strategies need to be consumer appropriate so as to cater to individual demands. With the advent of Artificial intelligence and modern solutions, this is now possible. Zeta Global, being a market leader makes this possible through real-time signals, predictive analytics, and Artificial Intelligence.

Zeta Global came into being in 2007. Formerly known as XL Marketing, Zeta Global focuses mainly on big data, customer acquisition, and CRM. Forbes most famously termed it as a “Unicorn” back in 2015. A distinction few have each year. Zeta, based out of New York has twelve offices in total located across Europe, The U.S, and Asia.

Zeta Global excels at what they do by making it easier for the world’s leading brands to master one-on-one marketing. They call this approach “Person-Based Marketing.” They intend to achieve this by learning, designing personalized experiences, and applying Artificial Intelligence.

The ZetaHub Platform

Previously there were several processes that required the use of several platforms to help manage multiple marketing procedures. But the ZetaHub platform brings together Zeta’s Marketing, Data and Experience clouds that help businesses acquire, retain and grow customer relationships like never before. Since the platform is powered by AI, there are several benefits to it.

  • The platform can process and analyze billions of data points to produce a single unified view of each customer that changes as they do
  • The AI-powered platform gives insights into each customer’s behavior that empowers a user to understand, and simultaneously react. It can even tell you whom to target, what to say when you reach out to customers to obtain the desired results
  • Companies using the ZetaHub Platform can engage customers individually one-on-one. There can be scheduled messages that can be automated to be sent as email, push notifications and SMS to customers in a personalized manner. This will help companies make a sale and be more relevant to their customers

When it comes to offering solutions, Zeta believes in offering two types of solutions. One way is to design solutions based on a company’s marketing objective.

Their complete set of solutions helps marketers across the globe obtain more customers and retain the ones they already have. Their clients are always in a win-win situation with Zeta’s expertise in providing marketing solutions and AI-powered platform to augment execution of these solutions.

Zeta Global was one of the best start-ups when it started. Many companies falter after their initial rise. But that’s not the case with Zeta. World’s leading brands like AIG, Hanes, British Airways, American Airlines and many others are partnering and growing their businesses in association with Zeta Global. Zeta continues to draw large investments consistently to achieve its goals. It already helps many of the Fortune 1000 companies grow.
