Unleashing the Power of Data Activation: A Comprehensive Guide to Uncover its Secrets
September 11, 2023

Data activation is the process of transforming collected data into useful insights that can be used to inform marketing and business decisions throughout the customer acquisition funnel.

Imagine being able to transform mountains of data into bite-sized, actionable pieces of information. This can not only help you understand your customers’ behaviors better but also streamline your internal operations. 

This is especially important in this digital age where every decision is informed by massive loads of data. At least it should be.  Any business that aspires to succeed in this increasingly competitive environment must embrace the science and art of data visualization and the power of transforming that into data-fueled decisions.

Just spending time and money collecting and storing data in silos that can only be accessed by tech-savvy technicians is, to an extent, a zero-sum game. Other departments in the business suffer when they don’t have access to such meaningful insights. The result? An inconsistent and opaque decision-making process across the board.

If you’re a local business, you definitely don’t have such luxury. Having data that isn’t used to maximize your marketing ROI is a mistake and an expensive one at that.

So how does this process work, who is it for, and why should you join the bandwagon? If you have similar questions, this blog series is for you. We’ll cover the basics of the benefits of data activation and how it works to deliver massive value for your business.

What is Data Activation?

Data activation may just sound like the latest buzzword in town, but this important business process has existed since the advent of the computer, and only now with more sophisticated tools at our disposal it’s worth addressing directly. 

With important data being created everywhere and happening all at once, it has made it challenging for businesses to keep up with data collection let alone harness it to use it effectively.  Scattered, isolated data can lead to decision paralysis and lost opportunities.

Did you know that 54% of marketers use less than 50% of their data, while a staggering 80% of data collected in most organizations sit unused? 

Enter data activation, the essential bridge between data visualization and execution. When your data is displayed legibly and simply, you can find and act on meaningful insights in real-time that you would have otherwise missed or neglected. 

Imagine tapping directly into the health of your business and displaying your employee’s wins on a leaderboard. This use case alone would prompt their colleagues to seek out informal or even formal training on ways to improve.

And guess what? You won’t have to do all this from scratch thanks to advanced AI tools.  A tool like datacube intelligently crawls through your business, identifying KPIs, and segmenting similar data to display clearly to help you predict everything from department growth to the potential long-term value of each client.

And get this. This is all happening in real-time, allowing you to focus that energy and time on creating strategies to deliver the most value. Immediately. 

So, are you ready to dive into the world of data activation and see how it really works?”
