  18. 18. • People are human and they change. They access your content from multiple devices. They come at it from a number of different channels. And, perhaps most importantly, as their experience with your company grows, their needs and interests change. And yet, most marketing still treats them all the same. • Personalization is a tool that you can use inside of your larger contextual marketing strategy. It allows you to focus on an individual and tailor the website experience by showing the most relevant message to each person. • Smart content, allows you to deliver the right content, to the right person, at the right time.
