Choosing the right tools when setting up your niche site can mean the difference between your ability or lack thereof to optimise your site for crucial processes such as hosting, content creation, and marketing. Tools and plugins are central to site personalisation and identifying the most appropriate tools for your site personalisation process is paramount. In addition to marketing automation, the right tools enhance user experience, which is advantageous in terms of boosting customer loyalty. Accordingly, customers are increasingly demanding for personalised products and experiences and as such, leveraging tools to personalise your niche site gives you a competitive edge over your competitors in the market. In essence, a site personalisation process encompasses the creation of buyer personas, market segmentation, site hosting, as well as identifying customer touch points among others.
