how to use smart targeting

#1 Website forms 

People are quick at ditching long forms asking for the same details multiple times. Smart targeting will ensure common details like name, number, addresses, etc., are filled immediately.

CRMs like Hubspot help you set up smart forms that ensure a low abandonment rate. 

Asking the right questions is another great feature of smart form. A person is least likely to respond to questions they can hardly resonate with.

Having enough information to provide personalized forms for every user is crucial to generating more qualified leads. Implementing smart forms will ensure a better completion and conversion rate

#2 Displayed content 

Will people go the extra mile to search for content satisfying their specific requirements? 

You will be surprised at how quickly they leave. It takes a few seconds to jump to other websites that utilize smart targeting.

Let’s say your website is filled with rich content for people in various segments. Display relevant content based on region, interests, etc., will ensure you reduce your bounce rate.

Furthermore, you will likely increase your conversion rate

  • The language barrier is another crucial aspect one must consider. The content should appear in the language suited by the user. Smart targeting will ensure languages are immediately modified based on the one set in the browser by the concerned individual. 
  • The referral source is another core aspect of content targeting. What made the user jump to your website? The source that triggered an action will help determine the content that must appear. Giving them what they need initially will make them stay long enough to take action.  
  • Let’s say you have an abundant database of contacts categorized in multiple lists. You can set a smart rule for displaying content based on specific lists. It will save time and display content suiting specific requirements. 

#3 Devices used 

Your website has a neat appearance when operated using a desktop. But, what about mobiles and tablets? Most people make a quick google search using their mobile devices.

A congested website appeals neither to users nor search engines. Many CRMs allow you to set up specific smart rules.

Previewing website displays on varied devices is one such feature. Thus, ensure you provide an exceptional first experience, irrespective of the device used by users. 

Key Takeaways 

Make sure to include smart targeting in your digital strategy. It allows you to convey to users a personalizedexperience that triggers an instant response.
