The Value of Personalization


The concept is simple, recognizing a customer when they walk through the door or sign-on to a Web site allows the retailer to tailor the shopping experience for each customer. By recognizing each shopper as an unique individual with their own tastes, needs and desires, retailers can establish friendships and create customer loyalty.

Where does the information come from to personalize the shopping experience? Are retailers using it wisely? Is there any need for consumers to be concerned about being known as a unique individual instead of one of countless, and nameless, purchasers?

The information to personalize can come from different sources. When customers become members or order from Web sites, or when they sign-up for frequent shopper cards, information is collected.

Personalized service best comes from retailers listening to their customers, learning their needs, finding out what they like and how they like it. Every retailer can personalize some portion of their customer interaction. The best part of it for retailers is that it doesn't have to take buckets of money to get started. Just remember your best customers' names. And by the way, if you own a donut shop, I like mine with hot chocolate, not coffee.
