AI analyzed customer behavior data for personalized interactive marketing to drive conversions

With its success in brick-and-mortar stores, Burger King wanted to improve its online sales and strengthen customer loyalty. Therefore, Burger King adopted Appier’s enterprise solutions, which allowed the brand to leverage precise, personalized interactive marketing strategies to communicate with customers in a more relevant way.

Using the AIQUA AI personalization cloud, Burger King was able to collect, track, and analyze data on customers’ online behavior, such as page views and adding to cart. This enabled the brand to gain a more thorough understanding of customers’ behavior and preferences. In addition, AIQUA applied the data analysis results for personalized segmentation marketing. The system was able to automatically deliver personalized messages in real time based on customer behavior, ensuring that no engagement opportunity was missed.

For example, when AIQUA’s analysis of onsite customer behavior detected intent to leave, the system would automatically trigger a pop-up containing a discount offer. This not only prevented customers from leaving, but also converted them into buying customers and achieved a conversion rate of 31%. Burger King also used AIQUA to increase its average order value. The brand set different reward thresholds based on current cart value to encourage customers to buy more.

Creating engaging interactive events to reinforce customer loyalty

In a world where people receive hundreds or even thousands of marketing messages each day, only highly interactive marketing creative that is relevant to customers can attract substantial attention. Therefore, Burger King was eager to create a diverse range of marketing campaigns that reflected its fun brand image and resonated with customers. Using AIQUA’s Creative Studio, Burger King’s marketing team was able to create multiple interactive campaigns without any coding expertise.

For example, for its Double 12 time-limited event, Burger King used an in-web countdown clock to create urgency and succeeded in lifting its conversion rate by 6 percentage points. In addition, to promote the opening of a new store, Burger King used the lucky draw game in AIQUA Creative Studio to deliver coupons in a fun and interactive way. This achieved a discount code use rate of 50%.

Apart from using fun and interactive marketing kits, delivering messages relevant to customer needs is also an effective way to attract purchases. Using AIQUA with OpenWeather API, Burger King was able to obtain weather predictions for customers’ locations and deliver tailored product recommendations or offers. For instance, if a customer is experiencing hot weather, the system recommends a discount for cold drinks. If it looks like rain, the system sends an offer for delivery orders. By considering customers’ needs and offering the most relevant products or discounts, the brand was able to reinforce the loyalty of its customers.
