“Only in the last 20 years have we seen marketing change from spending money to interrupt people with advertising to market everything you make and everything you say…a lot of marketers didn’t get that memo.” Seth Godin

With the evolution of social media and the explosion of mobile technology, most marketers are well aware that their future success depends upon creating personalized, 1 to 1 interactions with the customer.
Transitioning from siloed marketing efforts to one that’s connected and personalized to the individual is not for the faint of heart. Webtrends outlines the path to personalization in four stages:

  1. Apply basic context to influence personalization
  2. Use specific in-session behaviors to influence content
  3. Leverage in-session behaviors with historical behaviors
  4. Achieve 1:1 personalization using predictive analysis
