Businesses are increasingly accumulating digital consumer data from the multiple channels through which interactions occur. Personalization efforts can be made tangible, measurable benefits through this aggregated consumer data.

According to a Gartner survey1 of vendor's reference customers, there was an overwhelming majority of 99% of those surveyed who stated their satisfaction in receiving the expected ROI from their personalization offerings. Seventy percent of them reported using a SaaS solution.

What is personalization?

Personalization is targeting services or sales to match a customer’s behavior pattern online, their interests, anticipating them and marketing accordingly.

Personalization should be based on a consistent customer experience across all the seller’s touchpoints, delivering a one to one experience. Personalization can be customized to serve multiple services fulfilling multiple needs in the digital sphere.

Need for personalization in retail services

Personalization is crucial to a successful customer relationship and offers a comprehensive approach to the development of tailored products and services in this increasingly competitive sector. Customer information can be leveraged to optimize pricing decisions, rewarding loyalty, and tailor offerings. This will enable the organizations to know more effectively who and where to promote and where to offer alternate services.

Improve personalization across channels

Various processes can be simplified and unified across multiple channels reducing the manual effort for the time-constrained customers. Also, customers can be segmented by understanding their preferences, what they want and then effectively provide it.

How does personalization work?

The first step in personalization is grouping customers according to their behavioral data that is collected. 5 to 10 such behavioral personas are created from the data collected. For each persona, the customer journey is mapped using the series of interaction with a brand from initial browsing to purchase and purchase of related products. Along the customer journey, potential triggers and responses are explored.

A key element of personalization is quickness of response to the triggers that are set. The response to these signals through quick and appropriate actions to the individual customers are called triggers. Trying out a message or response to the trigger, evaluating the results, altering the response and measuring the results again. It does take repeated attempts to capture maximum potential value.

For example, according to McKinsey2, a leading apparel retailer they worked with had to go through four different trials of a next-product-to-buy email until the winning one was found, which ended up yielding twice the impact of the first iteration. Additional iteration they tried only resulted in lower returns.

Demand for personalization

Survey3 shows that customers in the ecommerce sector want and expect a personalized experience, and in many cases, are willing to pay more for a personalized experience. This is creating demand for more and more personalization in the various retail services.

When a company takes up a project with a client they normally will have to sign an agreement with the client that neither party will disclose information that will be shared as part of the project to anybody else and that the information shared shall not be used for creating competing products/services by the company. This is a standard document that needs to be signed for most projects. This document is also referred to as Non Disclosure Agreement. We are publishing our Confidential Disclosure Agreement here. Feel free to copy and use for your needs. Business Solution Agreements CDA NCA Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.

I think you can have a legally binding contract registered between two parties. There is an Indian Contracts Act that deals with such issues. You can please refer that or talk with a lawyer ;) Shailendra (not verified) access_time 28 Sep 2020 - 11:00 Hi, I would like to know whether this Agreement can be printed on a Company Letterhead to be legally enforceable or does it need to be done on a Stamp Paper only? If on a Stamp Paper, then of what value? Thank you, Regards, Shailendra Naveena (not verified) access_time 28 Sep 2020 - 11:00 In reply to What is the Substrate that should be used for this Agreement? by Shailendra (not verified) It has to be ideally on Rs. 50 stamp paper, or refer to the state stamp Act where it is executed. In case of other party being an International client, in such a case on letter head or original sheets. Anonymous (not verified) access_time 28 Sep 2020 - 11:00 Can a non compete agreement be voided if it only has the day and month on it, the year was not completey filled (200 )? It was signed by both parties, without dates by signatures. Thank tx Pagination Current page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Next page Next › Last page Last » Add new comment
