IKEA deliver more targeted marketing to members

Overview: Experian helps IKEA deliver more personalised and targeted marketing to loyalty program members

Deliver more personalised and targeted marketing to IKEA loyalty members

IKEA Australia is world renowned for producing well-designed, functional, and high-quality home furnishings, along with their signature Swedish meatballs.

IKEA Family, their B2C loyalty program, is a key part of their customer experience strategy which aims to build loyalty and engagement by personalising communication with their millions of IKEA Family members in Australia. IKEA was on a mission to improve their client intelligence, to better understand and target their loyalty members through data enrichment.

Challenge overview

To properly match a member to the enriched dataset, IKEA needed verified mailing addresses, a critical component of the matching process.

However, manually entered addresses and an inferior data validation solution posed a risk of typing errors, incomplete data, or erroneously formatted addresses.

In turn, not only did this result in a lack of reachability of IKEA’s members, but the company encountered difficulties augmenting their data as they could not achieve a match rate higher than 83%.

  • Enrich their client intelligence to better understand and target their loyalty members
  • Eradicate inaccurate and incomplete member data

Solution overview

Experian’s Address Validation was the perfect starting point to ensure correct data at the point of entry. With accurate addresses, IKEA could then enrich their existing member data with Delivery Point Identifier Data (DPID) and Experian’s Mosaic data.

An added value to Experian’s Address Validation is the ability to streamline the sign-up process. This solution significantly reduces keystrokes enabling the client to effortlessly enter their contact information and avoiding the risk of error, credited to predictive search and fuzzy matching.

As a result, the address saved is well-formatted, saving time and costs associated with database cleansing.

Utilising Experian's Address Validation and Mosiac helped increase spend per customer and achieve greater return on investment (ROI).
