Data Driven Personalization in Ecommerce

| | 2 min read

Personalization is all about providing unique services and content to customers based on the data a company has about their customers. Providing personalized customer experience has become a top priority for most of the business because personalization has a great impact on brand advocacy and brand loyalty. Traditionally, marketers personalize the content and services based on a sample survey, that explains the behaviour of a large group with the data collected from a small group.

Reaching the right user at the right time

Personalization is not just about addressing the customer by their name or suggesting products that others have bought, it is about going deeper into identifying the preference of each and every individual customer and tailoring the products and services to meet their preference. It is a great challenge for e-commerce companies to reach the right user at the right time with the most appropriate message that will motivate them to complete a goal. The best possible way to overcome this challenge is data driven personalization.

Customer data has become the key to personalization, the more relevant data you have about your customer, the better you can implement highly effective personalization strategies for your e-commerce store. To get complete and relevant data you will have to track each and every interaction a customer has with the site.

Some of the major changes that data driven personalization can bring on e-commerce stores are
