If you’re reading this, you’re probably somewhat familiar with marketing through email and content. When trying to reach a larger audience, email marketing may be used to reach a broad range of people to send advertisements, request business, or solicit sales. Overall, content and email marketing are useful because they allow you to group customers or clients together based on different preferences with highly personalized content.
What is Email Personalization?
Personalization is an important technique used in email marketing. According to HubSpot, email personalization is the #1 used tactic by email marketers to increase their engagement and click-through rates (CTR). When you can tailor an email based on the information collected from your audience, it will make your customer feel like the email was curated specifically for them.
In addition, personalized emails should always be followed by a personalized landing page. With a personalized landing page, your customer’s level of trust in your business will continue after they click through your email.
What is Personalized Content?
Content personalization is a strategy which relies on visitor data to deliver content based on audience preferences. It is important that companies tailor their homepages and post-click landing pages to fit their audience. Content personalization relies on the following variables:
Location (city, country, or region)
Device used (phone, tablet, desktop, Mac, or Windows)
Session behavior (page views and clicks)
Content can be personalized by taking these factors into consideration. You can increase your ability to have a higher CTR when combining customer variables into a landing page that will keep them coming back.
