Webinar Recap: The Complete Enterprise Data Stack

Webinar Recap: The Complete Enterprise Data Stack

One of the biggest steps any B2C Marketing team can take toward better personalization of their messaging campaigns is to get their data centralized in a way that’s easy to manage. That’s why we brought in our friends at RudderStack recently for a webinar to discuss how their own product helps Super Senders accomplish this, and all the ways getting your customer data in order can help you do more with it. MessageGears and RudderStack fit well together because we such similar viewpoints on the world of data and marketing — It’s your data, and you should control it. Other ESPs make you copy it, but MessageGears doesn’t. Most CDPs make you copy your data, but RudderStack doesn’t.

So how do you get to the point where you truly have your data centralized and fully under your control? In the webinar, data experts talked through the steps you can take to go from an organization whose data is scattered in a million different places to being one that can move with speed and efficiency to use that data in a way that helps you communicate better to your customers. In this recap, we’ll go into the tips they gave on how to get from here to there.

Webinar Recap: Balancing Privacy And Personalization In Your Emails

Webinar Recap: Balancing Privacy and Personalization in Your Emails

When it comes to email marketing, consumer expectations have never been higher for personalization, or for data privacy. If you think this seems like a paradox, you may be right. The very customer data that enables you to send the types of highly tailored content your customers crave can also make your brand seem creepy if you cross the line for any individual on your list. It can seem like a losing battle, though, for some, to the point that some brands almost give up entirely, sending bulk mailings that don’t stand out in today’s crowded inbox. So what’s the solution?

In our recent webinar, email industry veteran Angela Vega (Senior Marketing Manager, Vrbo) revealed five key guidelines that can help you deliver content your customers will love (and that will lead them to buy) while respecting the security of their data at the same time. Here’s a look at those guidelines and how each can contribute to managing the tricky personalization vs. privacy balance.

It’s a sad reality that major events like this happen often — pandemics, hurricanes, earthquakes, violence, terrorism, etc. — and we as marketers can be so involved in our day-to-day operations that we lose sight of the fact that each email we send (even if it’s sent as part of a larger automated program) lands in the inbox of a real person the crisis is impacting. And, even if they’re not directly impacted in some cases, they may be sensitive to certain content. It’s not hard to spot when a brand isn’t showing empathy toward those affected, and that can turn anybody off.
