The benefits of personalization
When personalization is used in the right way, it is a winning concept for both companies and customers and there are of course, many benefits of using personalizing in your marketing:
It goes without saying, that the better someone understands our needs, the more trust we have in them. So when we deliver a seamless and customized experience to a customer and meet them in their needs, all of a sudden the buying process turns into a relationship.
Frustration with consumers can quickly lead to them becoming disloyal or even lost customers. But when we send out messages to customers that match their interests and preferences, we build both loyalty and trust with them. As a result of that, the customer is more likely to turn to you even the next time, once they have a need to meet.
..and some amazing statistics:
Over 40% of today’s consumers say they could consider becoming a repeat customer of a company that offers a personalized shopping experience – and 80% of them only buy from brands that do.
Take your personalization to the next level
Personalization focuses on customer data such as interests, demographics or purchase history. Common ways to use personalization are by including the customer’s name in an email or that a company sends product recommendations. But if you want to take your personalized marketing to the next level, Rule enables hyper-personalization. It is a more complex technology where you dive even more granularly into customer data and make full use of the potential in developed technology and integrated platforms. Hyper-personalization takes into account behavioral and real-time data such as browsing behavior and engagement data to interpret the customer’s intentions. This results in communication that becomes even more adapted to the situation and context.
