About LiftIgniter: LiftIgniter helps customers use real-time machine learning recommendations on their websites (browser and mobile), on sections like “Recommended for you” or “You might like." Our customers are e-commerce, media, and B2B customers who work with LiftIgniter to show a personalized set of recommendations to their consumers, optimized to meet the business objectives of our customers. Because we believe personalization is more effective if based on what the consumer is doing right then, in addition to contextual relevance, and because we don't rely heavily on who the user is or complicated 3rd party integrations, the product recommendations or content recommendations are primarily personalized on the actions of the end user, collected through our platform through a very easy integration using 1st party data. Retail companies, such as SportsDirect and Tradesy, leverage our platform to personalize recommendations, optimizing for conversion rate. Media companies, such as the Telegraph and Apartment Therapy, work with us to drive subscriptions and to drive recirculation. Many of our customers use the same tool to personalize email recommendations, and even personalize the subject lines.
