    Yesterday's personalization methods won't work in today's mobile and multifaceted retail world.

    Online retailers sell more when they present a web site visitor products and content tailored to her interests. And as consumers' Internet usage patterns evolve—with shoppers spending a tremendous amount of time on social networks and on news and entertainment sites, for example—a data-savvy e-retailer can use a shopper's behavioral data to personalize its site content even for a shopper who has never visited the retailer's site.

    In short, retailers have to rethink their personalization strategies in light of evolving consumer preferences and behaviors in order to present content that is timely and relevant today, and in the future.

    Canada is generally viewed as lagging behind the U.S. in e-commerce, but that doesn't mean Canada-based online retailers are asleep at the switch. On the contrary, the largest Canadian online retailers are growing faster than their U.S. counterparts, in large part by selling aggressively to U.S. consumers while benefiting from less intense online competition for the business of Canadian consumers.
