  • Ask pop-up style questions on your website and app and use this data to hone your personalization efforts.

  • Use a wish list to ensure customers don’t miss out on sales and notify them when products are back in stock.
  • Gate contents to ensure your brand’s gains data from interested customers
  • Engage customers across your digital platforms with quizzes, games, and surveys which all help to build preferences as well as personalize the customer experience.

In-store & Post Purchase

Physical stores still account for 70% of retail sales, so it’s crucial to gather first-party customers data where possible.

  • Provide incentives to customers who register their new products and leave reviews. With both options, you can collect additional customer data for use in creating personalized customer experiences.
  • Encourage your customers to use vouchers and discount codes they’ve received via their smartphones. At the point of sale, store employees will be able to identify the customer and make recommendations tailored to their needs.
