Quotes From This Episode:

 “Now we have the ability to see way beyond just the scope of our digital properties, and with that, we can trigger timely and relevant campaigns and topics and content.” —@mballard5574

“If we keep hitting them over the head with the wrong message just because it’s the message we want to get out as a company, then they will quickly tune us out, and we may have lost brand perception right away.” —@mballard5574

“We only engage with those contacts that engage with us.” —@mballard5574

“Data is great for triggering campaigns, but we’re also using this data to make sure we’re speaking the right message.” —@mballard5574

“If I have a pain point around something, help educate me. Don’t sell me something. Don’t push something in my face.” —@mballard5574
