  • Whitehall Chamber Corner: The Power of Personalization

    Nov 15, 2023

    If this article had been written in the 1990s, it would have meant something very different. Back then, personalization meant mail merges. The fact we could personalize communication to include the recipient’s first name (and later other fields), was the coolest thing ever. It showed someone who really knew how to use Word. These days when we talk about the power of personalization, we’re not referring to using someone’s name in an e-mail or letter. You should be doing that anyway. What your customers expect is a lot more complex but can drive...
