Personalized Marketing

Compared with other types of marketing, the goal of personalized marketing is to more effectively engage with potential customers by offering them targeted, individualized content, promotions, and experiences. Personalized marketing includes everything from personalized emails to VIP events to personalized gated offers.

To do this, marketers can take advantage of collected data or tools that enable personalized marketing. SheerID’s Digital Verification Platform helps marketers create gated, exclusive offers targeting groups of consumers based on their social identity. This includes life stages (like students and seniors) or affiliations (like military members or teachers).
