You can elevate your level of service with the way you use data mining. Targeting customers with suggestions and recommendations based on mined data needs to be done paternalistically and carefully to avoid being seen as creepy. The goal is to offer a higher level of service that maximizes convenience and personalization, but these personalizations must be communicated appropriately. If you have the customer's best interest at heart, find out how you can better serve them by utilizing data mining.
