Personalization & experimentation: Better together

Unsurprisingly, personalization is one of the most-discussed marketing topics of recent times. There are a multitude of companies proclaiming that they create personalized experiences – it can be quite challenging to sort through these claims and understand what technologies will deliver truly personalized customer experiences that add value to the bottom line.

Personalized experiences allow organizations to engage better with their customers, build brand loyalty and ultimately increase revenue. Recognizing that the right experience is not the same for everyone and taking steps to personalize your customers’ experience is integral to business.

So how do personalization and experimentation work together?
