Personalize Customer Interactions on Your Website with Adobe Commerce
Personalizing your website provides specific customized experiences for your site’s visitors, enabling you to really showcase what you are offering. Instead of offering a single, rather broad experience that may feel generic, giving potential customers a unique experience will highlight their needs and desires, and therefore potentially increase your overall success.
We all like to feel important and recognized, and potential customers having a more positive experience while they are browsing your web pages is more likely to lead to them clicking on call-to-action buttons and making purchases. Personalization and a terrific user experience creates a relationship between the customer and your business. It builds trust, rapport and a sense of being heard, resulting in a much higher likelihood of them becoming a regular customer.
Make a customer feel unique, show them what they are interested in and give them some special offers, and they are more likely to stay loyal to your brand. If you consider that 15% of a business’ most loyal customers account for 55% to 70% of their total sales1, it is critical that you make your customers count.
The priority of website personalization is to give the user a great experience by meeting their needs, before they even supply them. Pretty smart, hey! And personalized customer experience can reach further than just your website. Use it for your users’ mobile apps, emails and your digital ads.
How Do You Personalize a Website?
To create specific experiences for each website visitor, businesses use certain data they are able to collect to provide specific recommendations, special offers and dynamic content.
This customer data may include their geographical location, past purchases, the device they use and the ways they have interacted with the website previously.
For example, you can use a user’s data to determine what they may want to purchase next. Perhaps they have purchased a piece of furniture already, so you know their style and budget. So, you can automatically populate other similar or complementary items on their instance of your homepage the next time they visit.
Alternatively, you can select a particular item available in your store they may like and send the user an email offering a special discount, or free shipping - something to entice them. It’s likely to catch their eye and have them clicking through to the landing page you provide.
If you have several thousand unique customers, it is more complex to provide individual profiles, so you can develop buyer personas. That involves grouping your customers together, based on their location, how much they have spent, or the goods they have shown interest in. This creates a wider personalization, but it is still effective at providing tailored information.
