One-to-One Online Marketing refers to a marketing and sales approach in which personalised sales or marketing offers are developed and sent to customers based on a strategic, segmented approach. This is done mainly online, using both online tools such as online databases, CRM platforms, analysis and email / communications platforms, and where this online approach leads the enterprise effort. This includes:
- Analysis of customer interactions and purchase activity;
- Development of niche or micro-segments and offers;
- Personalised online marketing towards each segment, referring to individual customers and groups;
- A long-term, strategic approach based on customer relationship management (CRM) and key account management principals.
Small companies in Cyprus are ideally situated for implementing one-to-one online marketing. Despite a resource issue (lack of time / lack of knowledge), small companies have:
- A clear tacit, if not explicit knowledge of their customers: they have been working with a significant group of customers for years, sometimes generations.
- Customer contact data (even if fragmented or partial) which is drawn from email addresses, delivery addresses, social media and other areas;
- Customer purchase data: experience with transactions over years means that there is high tacit data, even if this has not been segmented or analysed formally;
- Customer demographic data;
- Permission to market: the highly social approach to interpersonal relationships makes it possible to market without friction.
This seminar will provide a strategic approach towards developing and managing a one-to-one approach for online customer marketing, targeting B2B and B2C, for small enterprises in Cyprus. This includes domestic and export customers.
The company visit will adapt the training methodologies to the specific requirements of each small enterprise. A key focus will be on imparting tangible and practical frameworks and methods as well as explaining their implementation through real case studies and tools. The experiences of small enterprises in Cyprus and internationally will be shared and analysed.
2. Training Objectives
The key learning objectives are to reinforce the capacity of Cypriot managers to:
- Develop micro-segments of customers, split between B2B and B2C segments, domestic and export segments, based on customer demographics and purchase profiles.

3.2 Customer Data and Segmentation
Module 2 | 11:00 – 12:45 | 105 minutes
Each small enterprise has certain customer data available to it. This includes tacit data, i.e. the personal knowledge of the customer held by company executives, and tangible data, usually from accounting systems, product catalogues, central reservation systems, quotations offered, email, etc. This module reveals how data can be extracted, consolidated and segmented. The segmentation will include developing consumer (and customer) profiles based on key psychographic profiles:
- Male / female
- Age cohort
- Language and location
- Price sensitivity
- Prestige sensitivity
- Purchase groups and value chains (B2B, B2C, B2B2C)
- Special experience
Customer data are hosted in accounting systems (Cypriot software providers or international platforms); ERPs such as SAP, Oracle; CRM systems such as Salesforce, Oracle, Microsoft CRM, ZohoCRM; central reservation system (CRS) applications such as Fidelio, Sabre, etc.) and others. They are also hosted in email access programmes. This module will explore how the small enterprise can develop a data capture map within their organisation in order to gain usable and segmented customer information.
The module will also review:
- Customer data from partners, including affiliates; B2B2C sales relationships, sales staff; delivery companies; and others;
- Confirming data within the enterprise, e.g. at check-in or check-out; at the point of sale; at maintenance or installation contact points; at delivery;
- Confirming data via email access programmes;
- Loyalty programmes such as loyalty cards;
- Email marketing and customer care campaigns.
