New research from Accenture Interactive indicates that offering personalized experiences will translate to higher sales if businesses remove unintended barriers consumers report. While most consumers welcome personalized offerings, many complain of having received irrelevant recommendations and practiced an overwhelming choice of options when visiting brands and retailers’ websites.

A full 75% of consumers are more likely to buy from retailers that provide any of these three services.

Despite their openness to personalization, many consumers are disdesignated with the experiences they receive, such as:

A glut of options – two in five (39%) have left a business’ website and made a purchase elsewhere, because they were overwhelmed by too many options.

Irrelevant recommendations – just one in two (50%) stated ever making a purchase recommended to them on a retailer’s website.

“Brands recently have a responsibility to make it easy for customers to engage, buy and consume what they want, how and when they want,” said Jeriad Zoghby, global personalization lead at Accenture Interactive. “The availability of data and digital technology recently allows for a deeper level of personalization needed to dynamically curate experiences to each individual and context, across marketing, shopping, and services interactions. Yet many brands are still grappling with delivering upon customers’ desire for more personalized experiences. They create unintended barriers, for example, when onsite search delivers irrelevant results or landing pages don’t match known customer intent or profiles. In an era when your brand is the experience, it’s imperative that retailers deliver the ultimate user-friendly and tailored experiences or risk sacrificing sales and loyalty.”
