You Need Opt-In Leads To Maintain Data Privacy

data privacy

Have you thought about how you safeguard your customer data? What about the marketability of your email list? You should. Data privacy regulations are moving into the United States, with California being the first (but certainly not the last) state to take a strong stance around protecting consumer data. Utilizing opt-in advertising for 100% permissioned leads ensure that you have trackable proof of consent for every email in your database. But you also need to make sure that the database itself is secure and that all data transfers use encrypted methods to protect the data in transit. Opt-in advertising can help maintain data privacy every step of the way.

win back customers

Whether you use a sophisticated CRM or a basic inventory and customer database, you have a lot of data on your customers and their purchase behavior. You also have an unsubscribed list of users, many of whom are probably former customers who you would like to win back. The catch? You can’t use the information you have on these unsubscribed users to reactivate or resubscribe them via email, because–you guessed it–they’ve unsubscribed! But that doesn’t mean you can’t target them in other ways.

The data you have on your current and former customers can be used to make targeted, fact-based assumptions about your unsubscribed email list. Here are three ways to use data to win back customers.

The Pros and Cons of Lead Generation Landing Pages

lead generation landing pages

For years, the gold standard of lead generation has been landing pages. These dedicated, campaign-specific landing pages were hosted on a brand’s own website and provided a means for full tracking and data capture on a company’s owned website. And while the creation of new lead generation landing pages could be labor intensive at times, there was no other way to reliably build an email database. Enter opt-in advertising, an off-site method of generating leads without landing pages through trusted third-party sites. Still using landing pages for lead generation? You’re not alone. Read on for the pros and cons of dedicated lead generation landing pages, and see if opt-in advertising could be right for you.

Can You Afford Not To Try Opt-In Advertising?

opt-in advertising

There’s nothing wrong with landing pages, but they can make it hard to scale a lead generation program. That’s because traditional lead generation campaigns require you to divert engaged users off the sites they frequent, and over to your own domain. This traffic can come at a steep price. We challenge our clients to “go beyond the landing page.” And we’ve got the opt-in advertising technology to help take on that challenge, with great results.

Our unique “StayPut” ad unit brings the lead generation form to where your target audience actually is, instead of trying to drive them to your landing page. This type of opt-in advertising makes it faster and easier for them to join your list, saving you money and increasing your lead pool quickly.

Tune in below for an interview with Joe Broumand, our CEO, as he explains how opt-in advertising can help you generate leads without landing pages.

The Top 3 Benefits of Opt-In Advertising

opt-in advertising

The term “opt-in” comes up a lot in online marketing. Single opt-in and double opt-in are two different methods of consent, most often used in relation to email. And in a way, people “opt-in” to your marketing in a variety of ways, including following you on social media. But when we talk about opt-in advertising, we’re talking about users who are opting in to your email list through an ad shown on a third-party site, typically through a co-registration form where their information has already been pre-populated for an easy opt-in. So while there are many ways to opt-in to marketing messaging, here are three reasons to specifically choose opt-in advertising for your next lead generation campaign.
