Personalization is one of the key tools for marketers today, but when does personalization go from making the customer feel appreciated to making him feel creeped out? And, how do you know where that line is?
In this week’s first article, Marketingland lists some interesting statistics about personalization including that 75% of customers feel somewhat creeped out by personalized brand experiences and 22% would look for a less creepy brand. One way to avoid giving customers that creepy feeling is to better appreciate the data that marketers can use for personalizing and the second article focuses on those data types.
This week’s other highlights include articles on marketing consumer products, an early 2019 marketing trends forecast and an insightful thought piece on the impact of robots on marketing operations.
Dig in and enjoy.
