Anna shared her thoughts on the three main challenges personalization brings and why personalization strategies can be so complex:

  • The first challenge is finding out how to make personalization meaningful to a brand’s unique consumer base and then link it to an effective strategy.

  • The second challenge is that there's already existing operations. So, the question here is how do brands create, plan, execute and track personalization strategies on an operational level.

  • And lastly, the third challenge is the need for tech, data and analytics infrastructure to make personalization scalable.
