preezie's role in phygital shopping

preezie's quiz journeys seamlessly integrate digital convenience with in-store personalization, effectively bridging the gap between online and offline shopping. Our journeys streamline the path to purchase by engaging shoppers through interactive questions, delivering personalized product recommendations that match their unique interests and needs.

These interactive quizzes, available both online and in-store, also help to construct a detailed customer database using the zero-party data collected. By mapping quiz responses to shopper profiles, preezie enables hyper-segmentation for targeted marketing campaigns and personalized in-store interactions, enriching the "phygital" shopping experience.

Service and product offerings, along with discounts and special offers, can be tailored based on precise shopper profile data—such as needs, budget, favorite colors, and interests—thereby deepening customer engagement and fostering a stronger connection with the brand.

 

Capturing zero- and first-party data

In the era of data-driven retail, leveraging first and zero-party data is crucial. preezie's interactive quizzes are invaluable for extracting detailed customer insights—ranging from a customer's preferred colors to their budget limits for certain product categories. These quizzes tap into everyday behaviors, enabling retailers to tailor experiences and communication with unprecedented precision.

For instance, if a customer indicates a fondness for outdoor summer activities via an online quiz, the retailer can personalize their in-store experience by directly recommending summer apparel or hiking gear. This could be achieved through personalized signage upon store entry, a custom email with a curated product list sent post-quiz completion, or even a sales associate providing personalized recommendations during their visit. This seamless integration of online preferences with in-store experiences exemplifies the potential of phygital retail to create deeply personalized and engaging shopping journeys.
