As a marketer, you know personalization is crucial for delivering an engaging customer experience. In fact, 71% of customers expect a personalized experience every time they interact with your brand. Our latest release gives you the tools to deliver a personalized experience from the moment an anonymous visitor lands on your website through to them being a loyal customer.

We’re also releasing an improved way of working with webhooks, new integrations, and improved reporting based on your feedback. Let’s get started.

Advanced cross-channel personalization

Our new advanced personalization pack gives you access to all of the tools you could ever need to ensure that the journey of a prospect or customer is highly personalized and engaging across web and email.

You can utilize an individual’s behavior, location, weather, and their price preferences to deliver a hyper-personalized web experience before you even know their name. The next step is to automatically capture personal data, to empower you to deliver memorable one-to-one interactions via email, at scale. You’re then able to deliver real-time dynamic content and combine it with key features such as countdown timers and individual coupons to drive urgency and conversions.

Access to advanced website and email personalization functionality, including:

  • Countdown timers

New self-serve webhooks

Ensure your entire customer journey is joined up with webhooks. We’ve made creating webhooks easier and faster than ever and if you are on our CXDP plan, you can now set up these webhooks yourself. Webhooks allow you to programmatically push data to other platforms to create your bespoke customer journey, whether that’s into your CRM or to fuel a direct mail campaign.

Free mobile app push

Cross-channel experiences are crucial to maintain engagement in today’s fast-paced world and mobile app push notifications are a really strong way to get your message out there. As of today, if you’re on the CXDP plan, you can send mobile app push notifications without drawing down on your messaging allowance.
