Buxton’s Latest Webinar: The Reality of Personalization

Buxton’s Latest Webinar: The Reality of Personalization

Personalization is a term that's been thrown around so much it's often lost its true meaning. Historically, it's been treated more as a buzzword than a concrete strategy, lacking a solid methodology or the necessary infrastructure to support it. This ambiguity has led to numerous misconceptions surrounding personalization, obscuring its real value and potential in marketing. 

For example, many marketers fall into the trap of equating personalization with mere customer segmentation. This belief simplifies personalization to a point where its true potential is overlooked. Real personalization goes far beyond, offering a nuanced, granular approach. Yet, it’s important to recognize that achieving a true one-to-one personalization – where every individual customer receives entirely unique messaging – is often ambitious and resource-heavy. For most brands, a more realistic and equally effective route to personalization is through customer segmentation. By grouping customers based on shared characteristics, you can tailor marketing in a way that feels personal but is more manageable at scale. 

So, does this mean that true one-to-one personalization isn't scalable? Maybe in the past, true one-to-one marketing at scale wasn’t possible, but artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the game. AI can swiftly analyze data and predict patterns, enabling you to craft personalized experiences more efficiently. Beyond data analysis, AI also plays a crucial role in generating personalized content at scale.  

However, it's essential to remember that AI isn't a magic bullet that will instantly guarantee your personalization efforts are successful.  Personalization isn’t a 'set it and forget it' approach but requires continuous adaptation and experimentation. Customer behaviors change, and broader consumer trends evolve, sometimes influenced by seasonal shifts, necessitating regular tweaks to your personalization strategies.
