The bar of personalization is getting higher. Even if personalization nowadays is a must-have to improve customer experience, consumers expect more than just emails with their names. According to McKinsey research, 71% of customers expect companies to deliver personalized interactions and create customer intimacy. And 76% get frustrated when this doesn’t happen. So, if customers don’t like the experience they receive, it’s easier than ever for them to choose something different or find a better experience elsewhere.
If you think having a good product makes your customer experience perfect, then you are wrong. Customer experience is a journey through every channel, regardless of where the shopping starts and ends. Having business processes aligned, automated, and centralized data enable your customer’s experience to be unforgettable.
71% of customers expect companies to deliver personalized interactions and create customer intimacy.
Customers describe personalization as personal attention and a positive experience of being made to feel special. In addition, customers value brands’ investments in digital communication and relationship rather than only transactions. For example, they appreciate the brand’s post-purchase letter or check message, how to use videos, or being asked for feedback. The personal touch makes every customer feel exceptional, seen, and valued.
Exceptional relationship is usually rewarded. That is why over 70% of customers will purchase, recommend or repurchase after experiencing the personalized experience. So, personalization is today’s influencer for changing customers’ behavior across all sell channels. Moreover, personalization also drives revenue lift, and that’s a fact. So, it is clear that rather than focusing solely on short-term wins, brands must focus on long-term growth drivers and emphasize customer lifetime value.
As customer experiences and personalization are at high stakes, businesses must deploy more sophisticated personalization strategies. Personalization relies upon accurate data. Therefore, one of the most important things you can do is make this a reality. New technologies, like customer data platforms, allow businesses to activate first-party data and, in turn, are helping them deliver the same personalized experiences consumers have come to expect.
