Did you know Netflix's subscribers watch 20% of the videos from their own choice and the remaining 80% from recommendations by Netflix. This clearly shows us the tremendous power of AI to influence our choices.

Now let's come to our A to Z brand for a moment. 35% of Amazon’s revenue comes from its product recommendation.

But how is that possible?

Let’s find out.

When was the last time you made a purchase that was recommended by your friend/family?
When was the last time you searched for a product review on youtube?
Why do you do so?

There are three main reasons for that:

  • To know that the product is reliable.
  • To know that we are getting value out of it.
  • To ensure we are spending money on a quality product.

AI recommendation is like your friend or your go-to YouTube influencer. Based on your interests, it recommends you products.

But, how is it going to be a game-changer for your business?

  3. Exposure – AI recommendation engine exposes the user to a wide range of products. In this way, it helps the user discover products that they might need.

The AI recommendation engine functions with the goal of conversion. It is capable of converting a user to your ideal customer who will be loyal to your brand.
