Why Website Personalization Matters
2 Minute Read
Why does website personalization matter? There can be a striking difference between the cold and impersonal world of online retailing and visiting your friendly neighbourhood shop. If you visit a local shop regularly, the retailer will get to know you, they will greet you when you enter the store and, most importantly, they will get to know your likes and dislikes.
If the shopkeeper knows you, and has a new line they think you might be interested in, they will show it to you. Even if it’s the shopper’s first visit to the shop, the shopkeeper has learn’t that products that appeal to a man are likely be different from those that appeal to a woman and respond accordingly. Both you and the shopkeeper are winners, here. You get to buy the stuff you actually want and they get to sell more and increase turnover.
So why can’t this also happen with an online store? The answer is it can. E-commerce giants like Amazon target their content very cleverly. Amazon’s product recommendations account for a whopping 30% of their sales because Amazon use a very clever algorithm that is constantly analysing visitor behaviour and using as much intelligence about the visitor as possible to target product recommendations that the visitor will be interested in.
Amazon enjoys more conversions, increased traffic, more repeat visitors, higher sales and happier customers as a result. Imagine what the possibilities are if your website could adapt to what the individual visitor wants.
