The complete guide to personalization and its benefits
In an increasingly competitive and fast-moving world, brands and consumers both see the benefits from personalization, especially on digital channels. Web personalization drives a more engaging and tailored experience for the visitor, making them more likely to convert as they access the right content, products and offers for their personal needs. Nearly two-thirds (63%) of consumers say they now expect personalization as standard.
Analysis by McKinsey shows that personalization drives a 10-30% uplift in revenue/retention and 10-20% greater efficiency amongst other benefits. No wonder that 87% of marketing leaders have invested in personalizing their approach, according to Gartner.
