Customers today seek a sense of uniqueness and personalization when they interact with websites. They want your site to resonate with their thought process, making them feel valued and understood. When you can achieve this level of personalization, it brings them closer to making a purchase and, even more importantly, fosters strong customer loyalty towards your business.
The statistics speak volumes: a staggering 71%1 of customers now expect a personalized experience. Businesses that embrace personalization have witnessed a remarkable 40%2 increase in revenue, underlining the potential impact of catering to individual customer needs.
However, it’s important to acknowledge that personalization has evolved significantly over the past few years. It’s no longer just about addressing customers by their first name in an SMS or email. It has transformed into a more intricate process that involves understanding the entire customer journey. This complexity opens up numerous possibilities to capture the attention and engagement of your customers.
And this is where a Customer Data Platform becomes a crucial foundation for your efforts.
The building block: Milestone Customer Data Platform
Milestone’s Customer Data Platform serves as a data powerhouse by seamlessly integrating data from diverse first and third-party sources, eliminating data silos, and providing a holistic view of customers. Following data collection, Milestone’s CDP leverages Artificial Intelligence to create highly detailed 360-degree customer profiles, allowing for precise audience segmentation and real-time predictions of customer intent. From data unification, organization, activation, and orchestration, you’re going past the days of having fragmented data and not knowing what to do with it.
The solution: Milestone Website Personalization
Now that you’ve organized data and understood your customer, you can now deliver or craft the experience your customer is looking for. Let’s give you an example:
Imagine you are the owner of a high-end boutique hotel that caters to discerning travelers seeking a personalized and luxurious experience. You have implemented Milestone’s Customer Data Platform (CDP) to better understand your customers and provide them with tailored experiences.
Using the advanced customer profiling capabilities of Milestone’s CDP, you have gathered valuable insights about your guests, including their preferences, past booking history, and preferred amenities. Armed with this information, you can now craft personalized experiences that align perfectly with each customer’s unique needs.
With Milestone’s integrated CMS, you have full control over your hotel’s website, allowing you to create multiple personalized experiences on a single page. For example, when a potential guest visits your website, the CDP analyzes their profile and dynamically presents them with content and offers that are most likely to resonate with their preferences.
For instance, if Milestone CDP identifies a customer who is an adventure enthusiast, the website can showcase personalized adventure sports offerings with exclusive discounts. Meanwhile, another customer who enjoys fine dining experiences can be presented with a curated list of the hotel’s gourmet restaurants and special menu offerings.
Not only does this level of personalization enhance engagement with your customers, but it also helps to build loyalty. By demonstrating that you understand and cater to their individual preferences, you create a strong connection that encourages repeat visits and positive word-of-mouth recommendations.
Furthermore, by tracking customer behavior and conversions using Milestone’s Performance Data Platform, you gain valuable insights into the effectiveness of your personalized experiences. You can measure the impact of different offers, content variations, and engagement levels, allowing you to continuously refine and optimize your strategies.
