Whereoware is excited to introduce Acoustic, the newest iteration of the IBM Watson Marketing suite of tools, released on July 15. The release follows Centerbridge Partners’ acquisition of IBM Watson Marketing software (the marketing automation suite Whereoware specializes in and has used daily for the last decade.)
Born from the desire to focus solely on marketers, Acoustic is dedicated to building products that “bring humanity back to marketing.”
Marketing is Acoustic’s number one priority, rather than an add-on feature to a larger technology suite.
What’s in a name? In the words of Mark Simpson, Acoustic’s CEO, “our new name is a symbol of our ability to create environments that draw people in, inviting closer and more personal connections. By providing purpose-built solutions, we can empower marketers to make these true human connections. Only by listening carefully to consumers can marketers make themselves heard.”
It’s no secret that personalizing your customers’ experience boosts satisfaction, loyalty, and sales.
Successful personalization delivers a consistent and seamless customer journey across channels (email, website, social, etc.). In fact, according to Salesforce, 75% of consumers expect consistent experiences across multiple channels, with 73% likely to switch brands if they don’t.
To help you get started, we’re sharing three tips for connecting your website and email personalization strategy so you can deliver relevant, memorable experiences that build brand loyalty, motivate action, and increase sales.

One-size-fits-all marketing is a thing of the past; your customers expect a personalized experience everywhere they interact with your brand.
Your messages and incentives should be tailored to each individual: relevant to their needs, addressing their concerns, demonstrating your value, and persuading them to convert—all at an appropriate time in their individual purchase cycle.
It may seem impossible to cater to each customer’s individual needs, but one way to simplify this process is to develop user personas.
User personas are fictional characters representing different segments of your core audience, so you can engage individuals with the right approach, timing, and messaging to move them down the conversion path.
Getting your personas right and successfully personalizing the customer experience is a huge opportunity.
