How Marketers are Bolstering Earned Data Strategies with OneTrust
3 Min Read
As regulatory and technical landscapes evolve and third-party cookies deprecate, leading marketers are strengthening their digital strategy with earned data. This type of data includes zero and first-party data and is the key to delivering powerful campaigns that yield results, improve ROI, and honor privacy.
What makes earned data special?
First-party data is data collected by your organization directly from your customers. This data is usually collected through website activity, purchase history, product interactions, and email or SMS engagement.
Zero-party data is data that is willingly submitted or shared by your customers through a form, email, or SMS. This data is generally more qualitative and descriptive in nature.
As earned data is a combination of both, it provides a complete picture of your customer. You receive data on how your customer interacts with your website along with detailed information on what products hold their interest.
This is why your organization needs to invest in building functionality that enables marketing teams to use earned data as their core engine and prepare for the big cookieless reset. Marketing teams can collect fuller and richer data to build progressive relationships grounded in privacy roots, not gleaned from third-party behavior monitoring but rather from trusted relationships built over time.
With the shift towards trust transformation focused on data transparency and control, earned data captured directly from consumers will be the most valuable.
Easily execute sophisticated web forms to collect earned data
To enable marketers, OneTrust helps teams configure earned data collection points using a CMP, preference center, and now web forms that can be directly embedded on websites.
The web forms include the following features:
- Customized to fit the look and feel of your brand
- Design elements, including brand colors, appropriate brand tone
- Choose your consent approach for the web form
- Choose its position on the webpage
- Swift deployment with a snippet of code
- Can be used to deploy on multiple pages and in multiple languages
Once consented data has been collected, it’s centralized within OneTrust, allowing marketers to stitch datasets together and orchestrate consent to third-party systems. Automate data governance and compliance by implementing configurable rules for earned data across marketing platforms.
