Ai Video: Is 1to1 personalisation possible?

First Published on 12th December, 2017

1to1 personalisation is the only way to know your customers best, and factors such as “too hard to do it” or “too much storage is required” need to be done away with.

“The truth of the matter is there are lots of tools out there that make it easier to do it (whether its analytics provider tailoring the user experience on an individual basis or an organisation decides to develop the infrastructure in-house, open source frameworks pave way for the same, and even storage isn’t an issue today),” says Gillian Morris, CEO, Hitlist.

“The ideal situation would be to generate enough data within your own user ecosystem to truly understand where and why people are planning to travel,” says Morris. “Once you have a user-specific data, you can understand the purchase journey and also what to recommend. Once you work on a profile of a user, you can understand travel habits and accordingly recommend something relevant, contextual,” she says. So rather than just spotting one destination that a user is looking for and coming up with generic offers for that destination, one can also understand what a user is looking for “something warm over the weekend in Miami”. Morris says, “People dont opt for a destination, they go on a trip. In addition to destination and price, equally important are timing (say weekend vs. weekdays) and social context (family, individual, colleagues etc.).”

Some of Morris’ recommendations are as follows:

1.     Assess what travellers are looking for

2.     Collect data, ask for it

3.     Offer value

4.     Leverage social connections

5.     Create accounts
