Why 90% of Marketing Execs Think Personalised Marketing is the Future

Why Marketing Execs See Personalised Marketing in Our Future

Anyone who has an inbox, a social media feed or even a Wi-Fi connection knows just how many messages jockey for their attention each day. It’s a lot, and most of them never see any level of engagement.

To quantify the dissatisfaction related to the level of advertising “noise” one interfaces with on a day-to-day basis, consider this: A national poll found nearly 75% of individuals are frustrated with web content that does not recognise them and adapt to their specific interests.

What Consumers Think of Personalised Marketing?

Consumers are aware that personalisation technology is out there – they enjoy it every day on sites like Amazon, where products are suggested, or Hulu, where TV shows are recommended based on user history. In essence, the question in their mind becomes, “If it’s possible to view content that’s directly relevant to my wants and needs, why would I opt to view anything else?”

A study conducted by Experian Marketing Services examined specifically how greatly interaction improves when personalisation is implemented in email campaigns. It was found that personalisation within promotional emails results in a 29% higher unique open rate and a 41% higher unique click rate. They also report that, overall, personalised subject lines deliver a 26% higher unique open rate.

When it comes to online advertising, 54% of consumers find personalised ads to be more engaging, 52% find them to be more educational, 49% feel they’re time-saving and 45% say they are more memorable compared to non-personalised ads. All told, 78% of consumers report they would like some kind of personalisation reflected in the ad content they see.

Recognising this, two thirds of marketers say they are increasing their personalised advertising budgets in an effort to offer more highly-tailored content. There’s a full-force movement towards personalisation and with that a renewed focus on video marketing as the best creative channel for delivery.

How Does Video Boost Personalisation Efforts?

First, let’s look at the fact that including video on a landing page can increase conversion rates by 80% and that 90% of viewers say video is helpful in the decision making process. The power of video lies in the fact that 90% of the information humans absorb is visual. It’s without a doubt the best communication tool available to marketers today, especially when it’s personalised.

Personalised Video Technology takes dense, information-heavy messaging that often appears in brand communication and turns it into a concise, visually rich personalised video narrative with a clear call to action. It enables brands to engage with customers on a personal level, leveraging any available data such as CRM data, customers’ social graphs or third party data. This data is then used to create 1:1 communications with each customer that are highly relevant and engaging.

And because information conveyed audio-visually is retained 68% more effectively compared to text, video is by far the strongest medium through which to engage your audience in a meaningful, personalised communication.

  • 74% of B2B marketers say video converts better than any other medium

The Rise of Retrieval-Augmented Generation in AI: What Brands Need To Know

Your typical large language model (LLM) gets its information from the internet. Think of ChatGPT. It uses generative AI to create content quickly and effortlessly. The problem is that sometimes it creates content that isn’t 100% factually correct, aka AI hallucinations. And since it doesn’t cite sources, you can’t always tell what’s bona fide and what’s bogus. This is a real problem if you’re trying to only share information that’s accurate and not, you know, made up out of thin AI air. Enter stage left, retrieval-augmented generation. Often called RAG, this framework relies on an authoritative knowledge base outside of its training data sources before generating a response. That authoritative source can be anything.

The Importance of Data Security for Personalised Video

Personalised Video combines the power of personalisation with everyone’s favourite type of media: video. As with any form of content, adding personalisation requires customer data — the details that make one video different from another and make each video unique to the viewer who receives it. Personalisation is a boon for the digital experience. Research shows that personalisation boosts ROI, and most consumers want personalisation. In fact, they’re 72% more likely to share data with brands if it allows for a more personalised experience. But anytime you’re using personal data, it’s important to be careful with it. That’s especially true in industries like healthcare and finance where data is even more sensitive. There’s no way around it: personalisation demands data security. Personalised Video is no different. When you’re choosing your Personalised Video provider, make sure their level of data security meets your needs.
