“For our customer base, tailored content is akin to having their own personal stylist. Every woman has her own unique style. Someone who buys black dresses may not be interested in floral styles. Being able to personalise and target our customers based on their preferences will keep them coming back.”
Word by Saima Alibhai, Client Services Manager at Bronto Software
“As Closet London’s success has shown, a personalized email marketing strategy based on data integration, segmentation and automation is absolutely crucial to driving sales. Closet London has been able to learn more about its customers and how they interact with the brand, which has proved invaluable for engaging them with relevant content that increases conversion rates and revenue.”
