Email Marketing for Contacts That Haven’t Agreed with Website Tracking

Email Marketing for Contacts That Haven’t Agreed with Website Tracking

The title may sound a bit confusing, but the idea is simple. What if a visitor hasn’t agreed with your website tracking consent yet, and, therefore, no activities were tracked for them, but submits a form in which they specify that you can include them in email marketing? How can you ensure the smooth inclusion of such contacts in your email marketing efforts?

If any of your website visitors ask you to delete all their personal data, you have to do it. To make it slightly more difficult, there are some situations where you actually need to keep some of the data due to legal reasons.

While others prepped for a technology apocalypse, I was updating SQL 6.5 databases to four-digit years (occasionally glancing up to check the plane overhead wasn’t plummeting towards earth).

It’s Time to Go with the (Data) Flow

The amount of personal data dissemination that goes on today is astounding. When I sign up for Spotify and I want to use my Facebook login for ease, Spotify receives my contact info, who my friends are, my location, and probably loads of other stuff. And Facebook receives my music tastes, which to some (ahem, me) is basically their soul.
