{ object.primary_image.title }}

Posted by MiriamEllis   Image credit: Robert Couse-Baker Before all else, gratitude to every delivery person, whether in-house or third party, doing the essential work of keeping households safer and supplied in these times. I’m dedicating today’s column to the manager of a nearby Sprouts grocery store who personally drove my order to my door when an Instacart driver just couldn’t get the job done. If your business or clients are weighing whether to fulfill delivery in-house or partner with a third party, my small experience is an apt footnote to the huge, emergent debate over last-mile fulfillment options.

Next: For whatever reason, the driver chose not to retrieve them, …

CCPA and customer outreach: What marketing experts need to know

{ object.primary_image.title }}

30-second summary: Consumer data is vital to marketers, and CCPA will change the way that data is collected, analyzed, and stored. Go beyond a privacy policy: Your organization should have a comprehensive privacy policy already in place (and publicly accessible), but under CCPA, you must alert users of their data privacy rights at the point at which you collect their personal information. Only collect the information you really need: With American consumers already highly wary of companies collecting their personal data, your organization should do everything possible to engender trust. If you need to gather personal data from users, you should do so, but don’t ask for information for which you don’t have an immediate, clear use. Have a plan for VCRs or personal data requests: Once CCPA goes into effect at the beginning of 2020, Californians will be able to submit requests to access or delete their personal data …

True confessions of a CMO, part 3: Marketing sourced pipeline is bogus

{ object.primary_image.title }}

30-second summary: Too often we self-silo because it’s hard to control and attribute the breadth of potential revenue-generating sources back to each and every activity.
