Protecting Data

2018 was a year plagued with data scandals, the most well known being the Cambridge Analytica Facebook ordeal (you know, the one where they sold Facebook users information to the Trump campaign). A direct result of all the scandals that took place last year is an increased concern regarding data protection and privacy regulation.

Marketers need to have a solid understanding of the rules surrounding information that can be collected and what is crossing the line.

Personalization

Today we have an abundance of easily accessible customer information, thanks in part to machine learning and AI. As marketers, we need to leverage this information and use it to create personalized experiences for customers.

On the flip side, modern-day consumers have come to expect personalization from all the brands they interact with. This can be accomplished through the use of omnichannel strategies and mobile apps have been particularly effective at creating personalized experiences. Personalization is an area you definitely don’t want to slack off on this year!

To improve your company’s status online, you should consider re-evaluating your digital marketing strategies and focus on optimizing your ranking for voice searches.
