- How new consumer privacy laws, accountability, and compliance impact direct marketing, inclusive of the evolving landscape of identifiers; and,
- The critical role of quality data segmentation and subsequent multi-stage marketing mix methodologies

Innovations in omnichannel marketing, emerging technologies, optimal creative techniques, and postal regulations also will be addressed, with relevant case studies presented. Learn how data and direct marketing methodologies play a mission-critical important role to drive the success of your business objectives.

MOVING FROM 3RD PARTY TO 1ST PARTY DATA: HOW IT AFFECTS YOUR BUSINESS, THE DATA STRATEGIES TO IMPLEMENT, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF MAIL DATA INTEGRATION

Amidst privacy concerns, regulatory laws, and third-party cookie data loss, marketers face challenges when trying to track and understand buyer behavior.

To successfully reach, connect with, and convert customers, it is imperative that marketers think outside the box. They must incorporate new, affordable 1st party data sources in order to attract new customers while also building long-lasting relationships with existing customers. Often overlooked, 1st party mail data collection and integration opportunities can be extremely useful in providing marketers with richer customer profiles in omnichannel marketing campaigns.

This presentation speaks to this monumental shift, the importance of 1st party data, what should be collected, and how 1st party data can best support your marketing objectives and business overall.
