The 2021 Customer Engagement Report - Merkle

The 2021 Customer Engagement Report - Merkle | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it

"In addition to unlocking first-party data through enterprise data platforms and CDPs, brands also feel the need to increase zero-party data acquisition. Zero-party data is that which a customer intentionally and proactively shares with the company. It can include transaction intentions, preference data, personal context, and what the customer thinks about the company. Zero-party data will become increasingly important as third-party data sources become less relied upon to complete private identity graphs.

 

Ideally, zero-party data can be some of the most valuable data acquired. Marketers don’t have to infer customer preferences or behavior through secondary behavior but are instead explicitly told, straight from the source. The best zero-party data is when the customers trust the brand and are willing to volunteer their data with the understanding that it will improve their experience.

 

Gathering zero-party data is a capability in itself, and new programs and capture methods have to be built and deployed. The data can be gathered through transactions, during conversations with the customer in person or online, or requested directly through forms or surveys. While volunteered information for its own sake might be preferred, marketers may also offer incentive programs in exchange for personal information, such as a coupon or discount. This could include offering a quote, useful information, a newsletter, or exclusive content in exchange. It could be in exchange for early or preferred access to special or limited products or services. The data request might be part of a loyalty program with rewards or points. It might be a contest or use gamification tactics. Marketers can get quite creative in how they approach these programs."

What's the Alternative to Third-Party Cookies? - CMSwire

What's the Alternative to Third-Party Cookies? - CMSwire | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
Regardless of how you feel about third-party cookies, we can all agree this new direction will improve user privacy. Just as you don’t hear many arguments against seat belts, I can’t expect many people to line up on the side of less privacy or transparency. So what is the argument for third-party cookies and why is there any controversy surrounding their dissolution?

The argument is simple. When used correctly, third-party cookies can be very effective in helping marketers render relevant and improved user experiences. Relevant ads are more effective for advertisers and less off-putting to users.

Getting rid of third-party cookies wouldn’t only decimate relevancy and experience, but also things we take for granted.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

There is no argument for 3rd party cookies, as the argument has been decimated by platform, publisher and advertiser behavior. It's toast. Shift to zero-party data: it's a far far better source, and it respects privacy.

An argument against cloud-based applications - TechCrunch

An argument against cloud-based applications - TechCrunch | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
A distinction between cloud-based apps and cloud computing must be addressed. Cloud computing at an enterprise level, while argued against ad nauseam over the years, is generally considered to be a secure and cost-effective option for many businesses.

Even back in 2010, Microsoft said 70% of its team was working on things that were cloud-based or cloud-inspired, and the company projected that number would rise to 90% within a year. That was before we started relying on the cloud to store our most personal, private data.

According to Symantec, 89% of our Android apps and 39% of our iOS apps require access to private information. This risky use sends our data to cloud servers, to both amplify the performance of the application (think about the data needed for fitness apps) and store data for advertising demographics.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

The weakest link to any digital endeavor is data security, and it will continue until there's a broad-based effort to clamp down on privacy.

Is your marketing ops team ready to implement a new CDP? - MarTech Today

Is your marketing ops team ready to implement a new CDP? - MarTech Today | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
As customer data platforms evolve, there are indications that more marketing organizations are adopting them. They can see that the CDP field is maturing, with major launches like those from SAP and Salesforce last October. Overall, according to one study, the global market for CDPs could climb from $2.4 billion in 2020, up to $10.3 billion in 2025. A survey by the CDP Institute showed CDP deployment at 29% last year (these were members of the Institute, so the numbers are likely inflated), up from 19% in 2017.

With an increasing number of options, and added machine learning and AI capabilities, there’s good reason to expect more organizations will be implementing a CDP solution.

To remain competitive and efficient, a source of unified customer data is necessary. The CDP Institute survey shows that regardless of whether marketers are using older marketing automation or CRM systems, or new shiny CDPs, the move to unified customer data rose above 50% in 2020, after remaining steady at 15-20% for several years.

If a marketing ops team is already considering a move to unified customer data, they should consider CDPs as an option.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

The CDP should be the centerpiece of the martech stack; without a CDP, the backbone is just not sturdy. So without a CDP and without a strong content foundation, you're not operating on all 8 cylinders.

After 20 years of debate, it’s time for Congress to finally pass a baseline privacy law - Brookings

After 20 years of debate, it’s time for Congress to finally pass a baseline privacy law - Brookings | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
The world would be very different if Congress had passed Federal Data Privacy legislation in 2000. Despite its shortcomings for the current marketplace, it would have established a basic level of accountability for personal data that is totally lacking today. Consumers and businesses would know the rules, and the FTC could enforce them with appropriate penalties for deterrence. Such a law would also have provided the basis for subsequent amendments (whether by Congress or through FTC rulemaking) to address developments and lessons learned, including the many new business models and technologies that have emerged over the years, the need to advance beyond “notice and choice” as the primary means to protect privacy, and the relationship between consumer data and market power.

Instead, the intervening years have brought us massive data breaches, virtually unlimited data collection online and in our public spaces, huge platforms that know everything about us and dominate the marketplace, and algorithmic predictions that create risk of bias and loss of opportunity. Consumers feel unprotected, and businesses are confused about their obligations. 

The damage wrought by the pandemic—to our health, our lives, and our livelihoods—should be our first priority until we get it under control. But then Congress should turn again to privacy with renewed commitment to find common ground and pass a federal privacy law. Congress is now in a strong position to finally tackle and resolve the most difficult issues always left for “later”– including whether to preempt state privacy laws and permit private rights of action. Compromise and creativity will be essential, with the understanding that the final law must affirm baseline privacy as a core U.S. value, and provide the strong consumer protections and corporate accountability that are missing in the marketplace today.  After over twenty years, it’s time.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

When the Brookings Institution is calling for this, then you know it's just a matter of time before it happens. Start with adhering to everything CCPA/CPRA: you'll be compliant with CA, and you'll be a step ahead of the game.

2021 Will Make or Break the CDP Category - CMSwire

2021 Will Make or Break the CDP Category - CMSwire | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
Prediction #1: CDPs Return to Their Roots as Data Management Solutions
We define true CDPs as those that focus on solving the data challenge. Meaning they are capable of ingesting, cleansing and unifying customer data in order to distribute it to other systems for those systems to act upon it. True CDPs are not equipped to solve challenges further down the marketing workflow such as message orchestration and last mile delivery of campaigns.

Prediction #2: Marketers Realize CDPs Are Only a Means to an End

Although brands expect CDPs to be central to their customer communications, interactions and experiences, they do so by looking to the CDP for data ingestion, unification and availability — not for driving those interactions and experiences.

Prediction #3: CDPs Find Their Ideal Partners Based on Brand Goals
All this is to say that brands need to find the combination of tools that will create the ideal martech ecosystem for them. One where they can reach their true goals and maximize their capabilities.

A more focused CDP category can lend itself for specific use cases of complex data ingestion, unification and stewardship. These refocused CDPs could coexist side-by-side, while providing organizations with a clearer picture on how to combine and leverage them as part of existing martech ecosystems.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

CDP vertical integration was inevitable, bringing it into competition with marketing automation and CRM. That's not its core capability.

UK looking into Google's changes to Chrome 'privacy sandbox' changes - Engadget

UK looking into Google's changes to Chrome 'privacy sandbox' changes - Engadget | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
Google is planning to eliminate third-party cookies in its Chrome browser by 2022, which sounds like a good thing for consumers worried about privacy. However, UK’s competition regulator has announced that its investigating the changes, out of concern that advertising dollars could “become even more concentrated on Google’s ecosystem at the expense of its competitors.”

To increase privacy while still allowing personalized ads, Google introduced something called the Privacy Sandbox project back in 2019. The aim is to banish third-party cookies that allow for bot fraud and fingerprinting that can track you across the internet. Those would be replaced by “trust tokens” that would still let advertisers provide relevant ads without tying the data to an individual.

The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said it found in a recent study that “[Google] could undermine the ability of publishers to generate revenue and undermine competition in digital advertising, entrenching Google’s market power.” It also said that it has received complaints from a group representing newspaper publishers and technology companies, alleging that Google may be “abusing its dominant position.”

A few trends will influence marketers’ SEO strategies. For one, Google will use site usability as a major ranking factor in 2021. Secondly, new consumer shopping behaviors, including curbside pickup and online ordering, now requires brands to provide services like product ratings and nutritional information. Third, policing online misinformation will heat up even more in 2021, which means brands must establish themselves as authorities in their fields in order to avoid increased scrutiny.

How to Scale a Successful Pilot Project - HBR

How to Scale a Successful Pilot Project - HBR | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
But there is an alternative path that leaders can take once they have achieved a successful pilot: As part of scaling the solution, create the conditions that allow individuals and teams to adapt the solution to their unique circumstances and make it their own. Doing so requires encouraging collaboration, behavior-change, and innovation.

More specifically: Rather than telling them exactly what to do, challenge a few front-line teams that represent stakeholders in the system to make highly ambitious progress on key outcomes that you expect the solution to contribute to, in an unreasonably short time frame — 100 days or less. Give the teams some guidance about the extent to which they can modify what came out of the pilot, but otherwise let them loose and see what they can do to generate solutions that they own. As you do this, use the power of peer competition to spark even more innovation. Finally, capture the learnings from each of these 100-day “success experiments” so that teams in the next wave of implementation can start with an even richer menu of possibilities.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

Successful pilots do not lead to successful rollouts. So if it's a vendor-led pilot, be sure that the vendor sticks around for the rollout, and has a plan.

52% of B2C customers switch brands when they don't get personalized experience - Exchange4media

52% of B2C customers switch brands when they don't get personalized experience - Exchange4media | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
A big challenge for marketers, today, is connecting with consumers in a cluttered and multi-platform environment. As marketers re-strategize their marketing plans in the new normal, customer experience is both a priority and the biggest challenge. This is because consumers are loyal to experiences, not companies. In fact, according to ‘Inspire Instant Engagement: Discover Real-Time Interaction Management with Salesforce Marketing Cloud’ e-book, 52% of B2C customers say, they’d switch brands if they didn’t feel they were getting a personalized experience.

The e-book states that to build a consumer connect, marketers need to develop strong, adaptable relationships with consumers by inspiring timely, relevant engagement every time and everywhere a consumer interacts with a brand. However, many marketers use disparate tools to manage channels, causing a disconnected experience for consumers. In addition, data regarding each individual isn’t shared between departments, which means multiple teams are trying to market to the same consumer. This, at a time, when the connected consumers are expecting incredible relationships and brand experiences.

The myth of hyper-personalization - algorithms are still undermining the customer experience - Diginomica

Mostly we have brute force algorithms, attempting hyper-personalization without regard for those who find it intrusive - not too far from the mass email blasts most companies still indulge in.

Why would companies do this? Because the downside - alienating a minority of hyper-sensitive users, only a percentage of which vocalize their dissatisfaction - is considered acceptable collateral CX damage.

Typically, those alienated include a once-important user base for the company: folks we might call early adopters or super-users. These folks don't mind rough patches in early releases - especially if they can configure exciting new services. However, in the great UX dumbing down, simplicity and mass user adoption is the highest value. The only problem? Sometimes when you oversimplify an app or service, you harm it - or make it unrecognizable to those who built your audience.

The Two Types Of Attention Marketers Must Know - Forbes

The Two Types Of Attention Marketers Must Know - Forbes | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
The impetus for paying attention to something comes from one of two places: inside us or outside of us. Neuroscientists call these endogenous and exogenous, respectively. Marketers must know how to work with these two forms of attention.

Endogenous attention is what you use when you shop with a grocery list in hand. Your guiding goal is to find the items on the list. In this case, what you pay attention to is directed internally (the endo in endogenous means “coming from within”). This is endogenous attention.

Now imagine you’re going to the mall to kill time and browse around. In this case, you don’t have an internal goal. Instead, the things you pay attention to are generally directed externally (Exo in exogenous means ‘coming from outside’), by whatever catches your eye. This is exogenous attention, the primary form of attention marketers must optimize.

3 Differences Between the CCPA and the CPRA - Business Insider

"Whereas the CCPA focuses primarily on regulating personal information that could be used to identify an individual, such as IP addresses and social security numbers, the CPRA introduces an additional category called "sensitive personal information." The latter category includes information like ethnicity and religious beliefs. From the perspective of cloud management and security teams, this means that more types of data that may be stored in cloud environments are subject to regulation under the CPRA.

 

Additional consumer rights are a second key difference between the CCPA and the CPRA. Under the CPRA, not only will consumers have rights involving knowing about and deleting data that companies collect about them, but they will also be able to request data correction. In addition, the CPRA provides consumers with new rights involving knowing about and opting out of automated decision-making processes, including the data that powers them.

 

A third important new requirement under the CPRA is mandatory risk assessments and audits. Companies will be required to submit the results of these assessments to California regulators on a "regular basis," a requirement absent from the CCPA. The teeth behind the CPRA will be a new agency, the California Privacy Protection Agency, the first dedicated agency of its kind in the US with rulemaking, auditing, investigation and enforcement authority.

If you're like most marketers, you're just not prepared for this. You have to be. It's the law.

Why and how CMOs must master data to succeed in 2021 - ClickZ | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
Using data as an asset...
Step 1: Integrate all customer data

Step 2: Scale customer insights
This step is where you can utilize analytics to measure the impact of customer insights. Thousands of models can sense and react to customer opportunities and pain points.

Step 3: Turn insights into actions
Everything comes down to predicting a trend faster than competitors. This means access to real-time data is crucial – and the lynchpin is actually turning those customer insights into actions.

Step 4: Build a CX culture
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

There needs to be a significant shift away from the view of data as it is today. Static data does not provide the timely insight marketers need, but data directly from the consumer in real-time is exactly what is needed, as it eliminates the necessity of using ML to predict. Why predict when the fresh data is right there to be had.

8 marketing trends to watch for in 2021 as aftereffects of a volatile year linger - Marketing Dive | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
Outside of pandemic demands, marketers made one item a top priority in 2020: first-party data. As cookies and mainstay methods of in-app tracking go the way of the dinosaur, forging a personal connection with consumers has become essential, but will prove more challenging than conducting digital marketing the old way.

"It was definitely simpler to collect that [third-party] data," said Raphael Ravilla, partner, media and connections planning at Marcus Thomas. "It's going to be harder to collect first-party data that's authenticated and whatnot, but it's going to: 1.) make marketers try harder to get that data, but 2.) it's also going to be cleaner data than what we were using."

When it Comes to Personalization, Think IA Before AI

When it Comes to Personalization, Think IA Before AI | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
"Understand that personalization requires orchestration of multiple internal processes and a holistic view of content, product information, the customer journey and knowledge of customer needs and solutions," said Seth Earley, CEO of Earley Information Science and author of “The AI-Powered Enterprise.” "Many organizations attempt personalization without an understanding of what a personalized experience really means — they don’t know the customer well enough to distinguish messaging across segments. The upstream processes are not mature enough to determine what a truly personalized experience means."

In order to deliver personalized customer experiences at scale, Earley recommends that organizations look closely at four areas — their customer data foundation; componentized content; product architecture; and knowledge and insights. In each area, the focus should be on adopting unified models, using advanced services and expertise, and deploying standardized platforms and processes.

“Established organizations with mature content offerings spend more time and attention on metadata and their strategic approach to data and measurement than they will on content per se,” Jeffrey MacIntyre, principal of Bucket Studio said. “It’s IA [information architecture] before AI.”

While 75% of American respondents believe it’s possible to have data privacy in today’s technology-driven world, a significant portion of respondents (one in five) worry about being able to maintain their privacy while online.

In order to make people feel better about giving you their data, you have to build trust.

Over 70% of U.S. respondents said they were more likely to do business with a company if they were offered the opportunity to delete their information. U.S. consumers also valued the ability to turn off location tracking, delete their browsing history, choose whom a company shares information with, and review the information that companies have about them.

Another key finding: about 40% of respondents, regardless of country, felt that their data is worth more than the free services they receive in exchange.

How The New York Times Is Adapting to Life Without Third-Party Cookies - AdWeek | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
Moving to a first-party data model is an expensive undertaking. How can smaller publishers expect to do something like this?

For the smaller publisher, what I would say is that generally over the last 20 years, as far as I have researched, we have been relying a lot on external capabilities and vendors coming in and providing solutions. One way or the other, things have not worked for quite [a long time]. Ultimately you have to replace it or do something else, or maybe figure out a new solution.

So maybe it’s time for people to bring in some of that expertise in-house and start focusing on how you can understand your content, understand your audience better, build capabilities to be able to just make the ad serving work. … If you have more control, you’re prepared for these big changes better, rather than just keep scrambling around different vendor solutions.

OCC Says Banks Can Issue Payments Using Stablecoins - CoinDesk

OCC Says Banks Can Issue Payments Using Stablecoins - CoinDesk | The Marteq Alert | Scoop.it
Federally regulated banks can use stablecoins to conduct payments and other activities, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) said Monday.

The federal banking regulator published an interpretive letter addressing whether national banks and federal savings associations could participate in independent node verification networks (INVNs, otherwise known as blockchain networks) or use stablecoins. The letter said these financial institutions can participate as nodes on a blockchain and store or validate payments. 

Any banks that do participate in an INVN must be aware of the operational, compliance or fraud risks when doing so, an OCC press release warned.
