Individualisation as a marketing strategy

Once upon a long time ago, a piece of creative would be sent into the world and thumbs were held tightly in the hope that the generalist messaging would resonate with their broader audience. Today, however, as consumers are ever more sophisticated and discerning, they not only expect personalised messaging and communication from brands but are soon frustrated by those that don’t.

Up close & personal: The *secret* to marketing success in 2020

When data first became a thing, the receiver’s name in the email was the extent of it (and pretty impressive at that). But as both the technology and the consumer become more sophisticated so too does the need for marketing communication that not only calls you by name, but also speaks to your individual needs, preferences and, if the marketer is really savvy, your whims.
