Twilio’s Segment published their State of Personalization Report 2023. In conjunction with Method Communications, Segment surveyed 3,000 consumers and 500 consumer brands to identify key trends in consumer marketing and general consumer sentiment.
Some of the key insights from their research:
- 69% of brands are increasing their investment in personalization, even in the face of budget challenges
- 9 in 10 are using AI to drive their personalization
- Consumer trust in both data privacy and its use in AI for personalized experience are the biggest challenges
- 56% of consumers say they will become repeat customers after a personalized experience, a 7% increase year-over-year.
“…consumers want to feel like VIPs when they’re interacting with businesses – with more than half of consumers saying they’re more likely to make a purchase if they’re offered a personalized experience.”
With this excitement, however, are some common obstacles.
