Why website personalization matters
- Company: Sitecore
- Price: FREE
There is a lot of buzz going on around personalization in the online world, such as how to use it, does it matter, won’t the visitor be suspicious, and other factors.
The online world can learn a lot from the offline world!
Today, even after many decades in which technology and the online experience have improved by leaps and bounds, many sites are still nineties static, showing the same content to all the visitors, even if the visitor has bought one or more products (if it’s e-commerce), signed up for the newsletter, or completed another action. These static sites are primitive and don’t provide compelling reasons for a customer to visit again or spend more time on the site. This can result in low conversion rates.
