Offering consumers more control over their information can help brands collect high quality data.
To incorporate data into marketing initiatives, marketers should adopt a privacy-first mindset. Given the many privacy-first disruptions like device IDs, assessing trustworthy brands and their data strategies can enhance personalisation and privacy.
Brands must, however, "right-size" privacy strategies that are inspired by others, rather than implementing them as is. To guide employees and to help them address data breaches, copyright issues and more, develop a digital data policy that covers accountability and governance, consent and processing, notifications, data rights, and more.
Marketers should work with different departments, including third-party vendors, to ensure that data privacy measures are practised all across. To visualise data streams and limit inadvertent and futile data collection, implement a holistic strategy in marketing analytics and conduct a data audit.
