Once the shopper is onboarded with relevant data from the quiz, it becomes really easy for retargeting the product which is very much relevant to their interests. Retargeting can be done with various platforms such as Facebook, emails, ads, messages, Whatsapp, etc.


Every shopper is different and should be catered differently
