Personalization In Advertising

Personalized advertising uses data points based on who a customer is to increase an ad’s relevancy. These data points are based on data such as demographics, specific information such as niche interests, behavioral patterns and buying intent.

The Importance Of Personalization

Research shows over and over again that consumers prefer a digital experience that is more personalized to them. With this said, a study found that 90% of consumers who received some sort of message from a brand/company that was not relevant to them, were annoyed.

One could say consumers play a big role in digital advertising – and in fact, are the ones who changed digital advertising today. By voting with clicks and engagement and responding negatively to spam, consumers have shown that they were more interested in relevancy.

It was said that by 2020, customer experiences would overtake price and product as the key brand differentiation according to Frost & Sullivan and this is definitely seen today. With this said, success lies in creating personalized experiences, where customers can feel a connection to the brand/company. This connection makes customers feel valued and appreciated.
