Furthermore, nearly half of marketers surveyed intend to increase their budgets for personalization over the year ahead—with 80% planning to increase them “significantly” (by more than 10%).

Today, marketers feel web personalization is very important to their initiatives, and 51% of organizations surveyed have staff dedicated to working on personalization programs.
