Personalization: what impact on your digital projects ?

The demand for customized offers and services is growing rapidly among consumers. They would like companies to know their tastes and interests so that they can optimize their catalog. This is why it is now necessary and vital for a company to focus on marketing personalization.

What is personalization in marketing ?

Personalization is a marketing strategy development process. It takes into account the needs, trends and preferences of each user and then seeks to make their digital experience more personalized. Everything is based on the data of each user: if it is his first connection or not, his order history, the device he uses, if he is anonymous or identified, etc…

What is the purpose of customization ?

Building a user experience around personalization allows you to strengthen and optimize your relationship with your customers. A company that listens to its customers, understands them and wants to meet their needs can only be attractive to a user. As the market becomes more and more competitive and the demand for personalization by users becomes greater, companies must take a great interest in it.
