To improve the performance of marketing efforts, marketers seek new ways of attracting customers. Individual marketing is an efficient way of communicating with individuals. Meeting the individual customers' expectations and needs is becoming increasingly important in modern marketing activities. Marketers have started to concentrate on specific customers' demands. The paradigm shift from the masses to individuals has required changes to firms' marketing strategies. In this paper, a new system called the Personalized Smart Billboard System (PSBS) is introduced, which personalizes promotional messages by developing customer profiles using customers' accessories and some of their facial features. Once any of these clues are detected, related advertisements are shown to the customers. The system was tested with various portrait photos with different visual appearances and promising results were obtained. We anticipate that this system will present a helpful means of establishing more effective communication between businesses and their customers.
