What is Smart Personalization?
Smart personalization is when brands use knowledge about a customer to tailor a relevant, more meaningful user experience.

The best personalization strategies include knowing how – and when – to apply what the organization knows about its customers.
Smart personalization leverages contextual, behavioral, and persona-based inputs to determine where a customer is in their journey and guides their next step.
