Whitepaper: Multisite Personalization Strategy | Cross-community Collaboration

1600x600 Meeting

The Sitecore community is truly one of those collaborative spaces that are found few and far between. Happily, here developers, ambassadors, and marketers alike continue to come together to help deliver a spectrum of enterprise-level digital experience products, while enhancing and improving the platforms or the processes on which they are built. This process example is one of which I am proud to have recently been a participant. Working with Sitecore SBOS, marketing, services and Sitecore MVP’s from across the globe, we have assembled an informative new 50-page guide on Multisite Personalization Strategy:

Planning and implementing a multisite personalization strategy

Creating the guide was an inspiring collaboration of experiences that showed what a community can do to unite and share real world knowledge. Now that the guide has been crafted and wrapped up by Sitecore (kudos), I am very excited by the quality and weight those experiences bring to bear.

Goal of the Guide

The goal was to help businesses and their marketing teams within, properly understand what it takes to consolidate multiple websites under one platform to gain the power of omni-channel insights. While gaining this “Data-Driven Certainty” companies will also provide a cohesive experience for their customers through consistency and a better user experience. This multisite process is an ROI builder as well because, as sites are added, a fair number of prerequisite tasks that are required to deliver personalization are repeatable and reusable. The offset is that the process will still take a little organization, time and effort.
