How to Personalize Your Mobile App Experience with Shop2App

May 18, 2024

Creating a mobile app that stands out requires more than design and functionality – it requires a personalized touch that speaks directly to your audience's unique preferences and needs. Enter Shop2App, your go-to mobile app builder.

With Shop2App, you can personalize the customer experience on mobile and significantly boost engagement, loyalty, and conversions. We will walk you through the essential steps to personalize your mobile app experience with Shop2App, from understanding your audience to features that keep users coming for more.

1. Understand and Segment Your Audience

Creating a mobile app that resonates with your audience begins with a deep understanding of who they are. Shop2App equips you with the tools to dive into the nuances of your audience's behaviors, preferences, and engagement patterns. Here's how you can leverage these insights to segment your audience effectively:

a) Identify Your Audience

Gather your customer data - like browsing habits, purchase history, and previous engagements. Shop2App's integration capabilities allow you to pull this data seamlessly (using customer tags) for personalized interactions.

b) Analyze the User Data:

Utilize Shop2App's analytics to uncover patterns and trends. This analysis helps you understand the different segments within your audience, from the casual browser to the loyal customer.

Deliver personalized content, messaging (push notifications), and offers to different segments. Here are some of the customer segments:

  • Behavior and Preferences: Segment your users based on their behavior and preferences. Are they frequent buyers of a particular category? Do they respond well to certain types of promotions? Tailoring your mobile app's content to these behaviors increases relevance and engagement.
  • Purchase History and Spending Patterns: Differentiate your users by their purchase history and how much they spend. Personalize offers and product recommendations to cater to high spenders differently than you would for those who make occasional purchases.
  • VIPs and Membership Levels: Recognize your most engaged users or those with premium memberships. Offer them exclusive content, early access to sales, or special discounts. Shop2App enables you to create these segments easily, ensuring VIPs receive the royal treatment they deserve.

2. Personalize the Customer Journey

With a clear understanding of your audience segments, the next step is to bring personalization to life within your app. Shop2App allows you to customize your home screen and other areas of your mobile app, ensuring each user's experience is as unique as they are. Here's how to make it happen:

a) Implement Personalized Blocks

  • Tailored Recommendations: Use Shop2App's personalization blocks to display products and offers based on past behavior and preferences. From "Recently Viewed" to "You Might Like," these blocks adapt in real-time, making every app visit a personalized shopping experience.

  • Seasonal and Trending Offers: Automatically update your home screen with these blocks - seasonal trends, special events, or limited-time offers, ensuring your content stays fresh and relevant.

b) Enhance the User Interaction

  • Interactive Elements: Engage your customers further by adding interactive elements like quizzes, polls, or preference settings. It not only enriches the customer experience but also provides you with valuable insights to improve your personalization strategy.

  • Send Personalized Push Notifications: Leverage Shop2App's capability to send personalized push notifications using Klaviyo. Whether alerting users to a new product they might love, reminding them of items left in their cart, or offering a special discount on their next purchase, these notifications keep your users engaged and encourage them to return to the app.

c) Add Personalization across Your App

  • Use Custom Blocks on PDPs and More: Use Shop2App to customize Product Description Pages (PDPs), category pages, and more, with blocks tailored to the user's journey and preferences. Create custom pages (even on a tab on the home screen) or sections using custom blocks.  Whether it's for educational content, linking to other product pages, or showcasing the latest collection, the possibilities are endless.

  • Personalized Home Screen: Create a home screen that dynamically changes based on the customer's identity, behavior, preferences, and even the time of day. Showcase trending products, flash sales, or personalized greetings to make every visit a better experience.

3. Personalize the Subscription Experience

We have partnered with subscription apps like Recharge and Loop Subscriptions to provide a seamless integration. We are proud to be the only mobile app builder that creates subscription-centric solutions. Adding personalization to the subscriber's journey encourages them to spend more and builds loyalty, increasing their lifetime value to your brand. Here's how to personalize the subscription experience:

a) Seamless Subscription Management

For subscription-focused brands, you can add subscription management features on the home screen – allowing users to manage their subscriptions, view upcoming deliveries, or explore recommended products based on their subscription history. 

b) Send Subscription Alerts

With Shop2App, you can send automated and personalized push notifications about renewals, upcoming deliveries, or special offers. Keeping subscription customers informed enhances their experience and builds anticipation for their next delivery.

4. Test and Improve Continuously

Creating a personalized mobile app experience is an ongoing journey, not a one-time task. With Shop2App, you have the tools (at your fingertips) to continuously refine and enhance your mobile app based on user feedback and engagement. Here’s how you can make it happen:

a) Gather Feedback

Implement in-app surveys or feedback forms to understand customer satisfaction and areas for improvement.

b) Experiment with Personalization

A/B Test different personalization strategies, from the blocks on the home screen to the recommendations based on customer tags, to see what works best with your audience.

c) Analyze and Update

Analyze user interaction data to see which features are hitting the mark and which ones are missing out. Use the insights gained from A/B testing to make decisions and implement changes.


Shop2App's personalization features represent a significant leap forward for brands, especially subscription brands, aiming to engage and retain their audience. Adding personalization to your brand’s mobile experience, you set your brand apart in a crowded marketplace and boost the bottom line.
