Targeted marketing has always been a pain point for marketers. Creating customer segments, localizing content, creating specific marketing strategies to target a particular segment, etc. involves paying attention to a lot of details, connecting with your customers, and then putting together all the data to build a plan.

While you have to put in a lot of effort into all the above-mentioned activities, there’s one activity that can be a breeze for you. Connecting with people. Well, at least the organizing part.

In this blog, we are going to demonstrate how to create targeted marketing lists using Dynamics CRM map integration. It’s simple, effective, and brings you closer to your customers.
