Hyper-personalization is a marketing strategy that integrates artificial intelligence (AI) and real-time data to create highly relevant and personalized experiences for each individual customer.

  • Enhanced customer experience
    Hyper-personalization works both ways. It offers great benefits for your company, but it also significantly improves the experience of your customers with your brand. It leads to a more enjoyable experience, which in turn leads to increased customer satisfaction.


How to offer hyper-personalized experiences with the help of AI

There are many ways to offer personalized content. From product recommendations based on past purchases to dynamic pricing. And from personalized email campaigns to tailored search results. But it all starts with the collection and unification of data.

Way before ChatGPT was introduced, developers found ways to enhance Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems with external online data. Eventually, this software became known as the Customer Data Platform (CDP): a platform that nowadays can apply AI to collect and unify data from multiple sources. It's capable to transform these vast amounts of data to info that enriches individual customer profiles. Therefore, implementing a CDP is for many businesses the most effective way to hyper-personalize their marketing strategy.

Our own CDP, Datatrics, goes a step further than mere collection and unification of data. We have developed AI that constantly learns and adapts. It continuously gathers vast amounts of data to understand each of your customers in detail.

With Datatrics, you can create highly personalized content blocks, mail campaigns and ads easily. It either lets you decide what specific content is shown to different customer segments, but it also offers you the choice to let the AI decide for itself. Although this can feel like giving control out of your hands, our customers experience again and again that trusting Datatrics’ AI is the best way to reap all the benefits that hyper-personalization has to offer. Or, as Marianne Wesselink, E-commerce Manager of our client PinkCube mentions:

'We want to offer every website visitor a unique and personalized customer journey. This was not possible within our current website, but the use of data-driven recommendations from Datatrics has made this possible.'
