Gone are the days when you could visit your favorite retail store where the employees truly knew you and served you in a way that delighted you. Wouldn’t it be great if you could have that exact same experience online in the comfort of your home?
Sadly, this kind of personalized, attentive service is a rare occurrence, even in the midst of digital and ecommerce breakthroughs. When was the last time you had a web, app, or phone experience with a retailer that brought you joy?
This is where an AI-powered shopping experience can make a big difference.
How AI Can Help
The magic of AI is that it allows you to really get to know your customers – what they like and don’t like, how they engage with your products or services, what their life truly looks like (as opposed to what they say their life looks like), what factors might encourage them to engage more deeply, and so on.
Having an ecommerce personalization engine can enable you to predict your customers’ needs, including the whys and the emotional context behind their engagements. The more data you have, the more accurate your customer predictions can become. All of this will allow you to provide ecommerce search services that perfectly anticipate your customers’ needs.
In this increasingly data-driven world, customers expect service providers of all kinds to deliver more intelligent, customized services. As a result, the most successful service providers of the future will be those that use data and AI to provide more thoughtful, responsive solutions for their customers.
AI’s ability to seamlessly engage customers across touchpoints, channels and devices will go a long way in delighting your customers.
At the End of the Day
Today’s online shoppers have more choices than ever, and their expectations are high. They want seamless, frictionless customer experiences that are consistent across every channel and every transaction. Ecommerce personalization, supported by chatbots and other digital engagement solutions, can transform customer experience (CX) and build deep trust between the customer and service provider or retailer. The end result is positive results for you and delight for your customers.
