Now that you’ve gathered this information, how do you use it on your site? It’s effective to personalize content, offers, thank you pages, and suggesting related articles. For instance, you know that a visitor has viewed a couple of blog posts, and you can now link other suggested blogs or pages that contain any matching phrases and content. Take things up a notch and even call the user and their habits out with verbiage such as, “check out ‘this’ based on your interest in ‘this’” Showing a direct correlation let’s the user know that you hand-picked content just for them. It’s also important to only personalize related content as to not overwhelm your visitors. You should also be mindful of the appropriate jargon so that your CTA’s aren’t too demanding and provide welcoming communication.
