RichContent: Features & Benefits
The newest addition to RichRelevance’s integrated personalization suite, RichContent, leverages real time consumer behavior analysis to display the most relevant videos, articles, white papers, and/or slideshows dynamically to consumers, creating a unique site experience for each individual. Now brands and publishers can easily optimize their valuable web real estate to increase multi-channel sales, improve loyalty and brand preference, as well as boost ad revenue, while delivering a highly personalized and engaging site experience.
Key capabilities include:
· Dynamic Content Targeting: RichContent changes site content in real time based on existing customer segments, as well as individual shoppers' behavior and context on the site such as: how the consumer arrived on the site, browsing history, geo-location, social activity (Likes, Pins, etc.) and time of day.
· Content by Consumer Group: RichContent models behavior of specific groups of consumers that share similar characteristics (for example, women with red hair, men who have interest in adventure sports, a young couple looking for a honeymoon package) to uncover and display the most appropriate content for consumers within each group.
· Adaptive Learning and Optimization: As consumers interact with recommended content, the enRICH Engine’s built-in feedback loops inform the system about the performance of key content and recommendation types. The Engine then rebuilds its models every other hour—adjusting to accommodate the subtlest changes in consumer behavior.
· Truly Dynamic Content: RichContent employs multiple algorithms to support numerous recommendation types, each with a unique value proposition that corresponds to a specific consumption behavior, ensuring site visitors receive the right information at the right time in fewer clicks. This allows brands, media and retailers to build millions of customized experiences at scale, without any manual intervention.
· Insights and Analytics: RichContent offers detailed reports for the entire site or individual campaigns, including placement views, click-through-rate, revenue, average order value and more. Data can be easily exported for easy reporting. The insights and analytics are included as part of the RichContent software package.
