The key theme for 2021 is anchored in making human connections, and that relationship management is the core discipline for brands to understand and engage their customers on an individual level. While consumers are increasing their demands for truly personalized messaging and offers from the brands they support, they are also weary of how, where, and when their personal data is collected and exploited by other companies. This balance between privacy and personalization is impossible to achieve when using third-party data, which was recently showcased in the company’s new creative campaign starring Wayne Knight. The biggest takeaways for attendees of the 2021 Signals conference will be how marketers can end their reliance on cookies and third-party data, how to ramp up their collection and use of zero-party data, which includes crucial psychographic information from consumers, and why a loyalty program rooted in emotion can be the best long term relationship tool a brand can invest in.
