Let’s look at some of the key benefits of website personalization for your brand.

Boost Opportunities to Engage, Convert, and Retain

Have you made purchases based on product recommendations on your favorite apps or websites? That’s the potential and power of creating personalized experiences.

Brands across verticals see high conversions, engagement, and retention by simply deploying tailor-made recommendations that nudge visitors and customers to make a purchase. 

One way of doing this is by showing relevant website content based on their cart activity on the homepage, category page, or product pages. This also helps them pick up from where they left off while helping you boost your conversions.

Shorter Sales Cycles

With an attention span of a goldfish, and multiple brands and products to choose from, it’s challenging to grab eyeballs for your brand and maintain it. But when you create personalized website experiences that your audiences love, you’re well on your way to boosting customer engagement and shortening your sales cycles. 

A great way of achieving this is by showing personalized dynamic website campaigns by personalizing every component of your website based on their behavior, preference, or affinity. The best part? You can personalize each component without dependency on your design or dev effort!

Create Relevant Experiences For Customers and Anonymous Visitors

When you understand your customers and prospects and their buying journey better, you inevitably offer them delightful brand experiences. This piques their interest in your offerings, creates connected experiences, and boosts customer loyalty. 

How does this work, you may wonder. You can create dynamic experiences based on your known or unknown visitors’ entry points. These entry points can be based on traffic sources such as email, SMS, or ad campaigns. You can then accordingly show visitors eligible offers, deals, or even product recommendations. For example, when a visitor receives a discount coupon code in their email, the same coupon code can be shown to the visitor whenever they visit your website.

Run Campaign Experiments to Optimize For Conversions 

Data has radically transformed how we market our products and services to consumers. To create the best website experiences, you need to be equipped with accurate insights into your customer segments and the relevant best-performing campaigns. You can experiment with website campaigns across multiple segments and cohorts to help you narrow down the best-performing ones. 

But how will this help? 

When you can preview and test your campaigns before publishing them. Campaign experiments enable you to preview and test before publishing them. The experiment results give you the right insights on what’s working best and double down on those efforts. In turn, you’ll be able to drive higher conversions and a better ROI. These campaign experiments could range from content, graphics, product recommendations, website banners, cart activity, geolocation, and more.

You can now optimize your customer engagement strategies for long-term and exponential growth with insights such as the performance of your revenue metrics or clicks.
