It is the process of organizing, interpreting, and analyzing new and existing customer data to learn more about them to promote the product or service in a more customized and result-driven manner. It is a form of direct marketing that utilizes databases heavily, plus its emphasis is on the effective use of statistical techniques.

    Database marketing is a form of direct marketing that uses database technology to target individual customers. The goal of database marketing is to develop relationships with customers by providing them with personalized communications that are relevant to their needs and interests. In order to be successful, database marketers must first create a database of potential customers. This database can be created through customer surveys, data gathered from customer loyalty programs, or other methods. Once the database is created, marketers can use it to segment customers into groups based on shared characteristics. This segmentation allows marketers to send tailored messages to each group, increasing the likelihood that they will resonate with customers and result in a sale. While database marketing can be an effective way to reach potential customers, it is important to remember that it must be used in conjunction with other marketing activities in order to be truly successful.
