Where do you start with personalised marketing?

For businesses, it can be a lack of data resources like time and skills to deliver personalised marketing and often, people will fall back to the ‘blanket’ approach. However, there are substantial potential benefits to personalising your marketing.

Here are some ways to use it in your business:

Segmentation-based personalisation:

Identify customer similarities based on interests and preferences, transactional activity, recency of purchase, frequency of purchase, and other customer activity. Then, build segments and run tailored campaigns for each segment.

Example:

Customers who have all purchased the same product/service.

You could:

  • Upsell other products/maintenance services.
  • Offer aftercare options
  • Get reviews from them
  • Refer to other potential customers

Method: Email, call, text, direct mail.

Event-triggered personalisation:

Automatically trigger onsite messaging, emails, mobile push notifications, and other communication based on specific customer activities and events. For example, if there is a price drop or if the customer hasn’t opened the app in a certain number of days, to connect them with the right message at the right time.

Example:

Customers who have abandoned cart online.

You could:

  • Offer a discount
  • Recommended products

Method: Push notifications, email, call, text, direct mail, ads.

Omnichannel personalisation:

Using interconnected channels to create seamless customer experiences that connect with customers via their preferred channels. This increases traction and engagement, maximising each available touchpoint with your audience.

Example:

Get your customers to repeat purchases from your business.

You could:

  • Offer a discount for their next purchase
  • Suggest complementary products

Method: Push notifications, email, call, text, direct mail, ads.

Real-time personalisation:

Respond to customer behaviour and intent in real-time, activating personalised messaging and advertising that understand customer intent.

Example: Delighting your customer with personalised updates.

You could:

  • Send customers a video update on a project.
  • Watch your order being packed.
  • Track your delivery

Method: Push notifications, email, call, text.

Personalised Marketing

AI-based personalisation:

Maximise customer engagement by using AI that optimises customer journeys, message copies, and customer experiences in real-time based on customer behaviour, activity, and use cases.

Example: Providing customers with information on products and services they will be interested in.

You could:

  • Integrate AI chatbots
  • Showcase product recommendations

Method: Push notifications, chatbots, and apps.

Look at your customer journey; which touchpoints could you introduce some personalised aspects for your customers?

To ensure it provides the best ROI, you should try to make it an easy upkeep task that doesn’t require too much manual input. If you can make it automated, then it would be even better.

Just ensure you quality check it regularly, as a bad personalised experience can hinder your brand and not gain you the benefits you should get.
