Personalization (sometimes called mass customization) is a business concept that is growing in popularity across many different sectors. Personalization means that the customer can configure or design a product or service exactly how they want, and the business will use flexible systems to fill the order quickly. In addition, the price will be comparable to competitors' standard, mass produced versions. MadeForOne.com focuses its business news and features exclusively on this type of enterprise.
A Personalization Directory has been established within MadeForOne.com (http://www.madeforone.com/personalized_gifts/index.php), which is intended to be a comprehensive resource of companies who offer personalized products and services. The directory is currently being populated with websites that have been independently reviewed by MadeForOne.com. It is also open for website submissions, so any business that uses personalization on a significant scale can submit their site for inclusion. There are also categories for technologies that enable businesses to implement personalization. Submission to the directory is free of charge.
Another new development is the MadeForOne.com Newsletter, which is now open for subscriptions. The new free monthly newsletter will provide the latest updates on personalization direct to every subscriber's inbox. Visitors can subscribe to the newsletter simply by submitting their email address in the bar which appears at the top of each page in MadeForOne.com.
