Personalization helps improve your relationship with your donors and members. Members expect a high level of personalization surrounding their product suggestions, communication materials, and marketing tactics, which you can tailor around an individual’s preferences. Personalization has become a standard tactic in marketing, but you may want to consider hyper-personalization as your next strategy.
Personalization must go beyond adding a member’s name to the envelope. With every organization using the same personalization strategies, you need to use methods to make sure you stand out each time. Your organization will introduce new features a member hasn’t seen before by using a hyper-personalize approach. Hyper-personalization also allows you to narrow down a specific audience better than previously available.
What is Hyper-Personalization?
Hyper-personalization in marketing combines behavioral and real-time data pulled from multiple channels for organizations to create an extremely customized marketing strategy. This type of marketing allows you to tailor products, services, and advertising to each member for maximum relevance and conversion potential. A hyper-personalized experience also establishes goodwill, increases loyalty, and brings a smile to your member’s face

You will then hyper-personalize the content surrounding your geographically targeted area.
