Personalisation works. From simple steps like using names on email communications with your customers and potential customers, to tailoring the look of the products they see, by surfacing tailored information and imagery to each individual customer, you can boost your website’s ROI.

Consumer sentiment is in favour of using data for their benefit, producing memorable online experiences and easy shopping opportunities.

  • 91% of consumers are more likely to shop with brands who recognise, remember and provide relevant offers and recommendations (Accenture).
  • 67% of consumers think it’s important for brands to automatically adjust content based on current context (Adobe/Hubspot).
  • 74% of consumers would find “living profiles” valuable – if the profiles are used to curate the offers, products and experiences they receive (Accenture).

But how do you know you’re using personalisation correctly? Sometimes, you need to know what doesn’t work, those nasty pitfalls that others have lived through and you want to avoid.

We’ve collated the top ten mistakes in personalisation and – more importantly – tips on how you can avoid them, to help you start converting more online shoppers.
