With 48 dairy stores in the Midwest, a six-state home delivery network, and in-store sales through local and national grocery chains, Oberweis needed a better way to understand its customer base and growth potential. Especially since Americans are drinking less milk, buying habits are changing, and competition is on the rise.

Oberweis now knows exactly how to compete.

Targeting small pays off in a big way

Analytics reveals which selective groups of consumers are willing to pay a little more for the highest quality milk delivered to their front doors.

Customer retention improves 30 percent

Offering half off the delivery price for 12 months retains more customers than offering free delivery for six months.

Demographics tie loyalty
to lifestyle

Oberweis targets by retention rate instead of response rate, seeking out customers who are a natural fit for the long term.

Menus double as marketing tools

Custom menu boards reflect the greatest reduction in service time and the best increase in the average profit per transaction.

Slow and steady yields
best results

Oberweis found that its best customers start buying in small amounts, then slowly increase purchases over time.

Targeted promos reduce direct mail costs

Oberweis combines postal data with customer loyalty data to identify the best carrier routes to target for promotions.
