Today's customers expect personalized experiences that fulfill their specific needs and preferences. To deliver such experiences, businesses must leverage recommendation systems to drive contextual campaigns with the right offerings.
What Are Recommendations?
The recommendation engine is a potent personalization tool to ease out the product discovery process of your customers. It can help improve user engagement and conversion rates on the platform and in marketing campaigns.
You can use recommendations to suggest products, content, or other items likely to interest the user based on their past behavior and interactions with your brand.
The 'Recommendations' engine of MoEngage can deliver diverse experiences ranging from promoting the same items to all users to identifying unexplored, relevant items tailored to individual preferences inspired by similar users' behavior or item similarities.
