What You Need To Know To Safeguard Lead Generation Data

Data privacy and use is a major concern for both companies and consumers these days. How lead generation data is collected, stored and used is especially important to advertisers who are paying or have paid for targeting that includes both first and third-party data. Data privacy regulations are taking effect across the globe, and tighter restrictions are becoming the norm. Overall, this is a good thing for everyone, but it takes some adjustments as we settle into the “new normal.”

The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, has had a major impact on North American companies, despite being a European Union policy. But California has just passed similar legislation, and more states may follow soon. Marc Benioff has called for a national data privacy law, much like the EU has with GDPR, and we may not be far off. Taking extra steps to ensure you follow proper data privacy policies now will pay off in the long term.

Opt-in advertising allows users to quickly join your email list, or “opt-in” to email marketing from you. It’s a great way to build a lead funnel. And the best part is you can gather leads without landing pages using either single or double opt-in advertising. Ad units display on the websites your potential customers are already browsing and allow them to submit their email address, phone number or other contact information right within the ad. They don’t have to navigate away from the site they wanted to view, so you’re not paying for costly web traffic or landing page development.

You specify the form fields available to the user to provide contact information, choosing what’s most important for your lead generation campaign. You can also choose single opt-in, where their email is subscribed immediately, or double opt-in, where an initial confirmation email ensures they meant to sign up and safeguards the quality of your list. So which is right for you? Read on to find out!
