4 tips to get started with personalization

1. Start simple

You don't need to begin personalizing for every single buying scenario for all the different personas that fit your customers. Start with something small, like geolocation.

If it's January and you're a global fashion retailer, personalize your e-shop banner so that Australian customers see summer clothing articles. For your North American visitors, display items from your winter line.

2. Split your audience into segments

What groups do your visitors fall into? Can you split them by language, location, age, browsing behavior (such as return visitors)?

Figure out the most important segments for your business and focus on creating content for those segments.

3. Tag content to match your segments

Creating personalized website content for different segments can seem like a daunting task: how much content do you need? Focus less on creating new content and more on tagging the content you have.

If an image is tagged with "trendy" and "miillenial", you'll know you can use it any time you need content to appeal to fashionable twenty-somethings.

4. Identify the touchpoints that matter

Where do you interact most often with your customers? What touchpoints drive conversions?

Begin mapping out your customers' journey and take a look at where content plays a role. Focus on the key touchpoints to optimize your personalization efforts.
