Personalization is a basic etiquette. Period. 

From entertainment brands like Spotify, Netflix and Amazon to tech brands like Google and healthcare providers too, all industries and companies are betting big on personalization. Mere first name inclusion has become a bare minimum. Flattery lies in hyper-personalization. Consumers expect brands to display content or choices according to their preferences and behavior.

New age technologies, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and deep learning (DL) are raising the bar every year to hyper-personalization. Hyper-personalization is all about analyzing online and offline behavior, search history, lifestyle, buying patterns, preferences, etc., to derive the optimal product or solution options for a unique consumer.

According to BCG, companies with stellar personalization strategies achieve improved marketing efficiency, higher digital sales, and long lasting customer relationships. They also see a boost in their growth rates by 6% to 10%.

The best brands embrace data and reinvest the wealth of information as seed to sensitize personalization. Meticulous personalization will quickly escalate to the purchase phase with minimal interaction, resulting in long-term customer commitment and loyalty.
