eMarketer: What trends are driving an increased desire for personalization among your customers?
Mir Aamir: The No. 1 trend is changes in customer expectations. There is a strong desire from consumers everywhere for relevance and personalization. Their patience for messages or offers coming from any business that are not personalized is running very thin. Historically, grocery retailers and CPG [consumer packaged goods] brands have done mass marketing, like weekly flyers. The desire for personalization is not only a challenge, but a huge opportunity for them to capitalize on.
