The TV Industry-2016 - The Importance of Personalization

Tue, Jan 5, 2016 | by Efrat Fenigson


In November 2015, the Harvard Business Review published a far-reaching article by David C. Edelman and Marc Singer titled Competing on Customer Journeys that encapsulated well the problems of catching the interest of newly empowered consumers. These, the narrative goes, have become used to mining information resources, abandoning any semblance of brand monogamy in a proactive quest to get the best prices and best services for themselves.
