Our February 16 webinar on “Why Email Data Quality Matters” featured special guests Dan Goran from Expedia Group, plus Tim Bond from the Data & Marketing Association and Kate Barrett from eFocus Marketing. We reviewed key findings from our brand-new report, and discussed the critical importance of good data for building strong relationships and effective tactics for achieving this.
Key talking points included:
Dan summed it up beautifully with an analogy likening data quality to Warren Buffet’s investment strategy. Success can take 20 years to build, and five minutes to destroy. Silent, slow, and steadily decreasing performance is one of the biggest challenges for marketers. You can easily ruin the reputation you’ve worked hard to build with one moment of bad personalisation or irrelevant messaging. This is why building a “single source of truth” of your customers is key, and communicating this to senior leadership is vital to securing more budget.
This only scratches the surface, and our expert guests covered a broad range of insightful talking points. Which data challenges are most prevalent and how can they be fixed? Why does good data underpin great personalisation? How has data helped the travel industry survive the pandemic by focusing on loyalty and relationships? How do consumers think about the personal data they provide to marketers, and if you could ask them for one more piece of data, what would it be?
It’s all here in the video, plus plenty more. Grab a coffee, put on your headphones, and get ready to receive some high-quality data of your own!
