SELECT QUOTES:

“That’s kind of been the pipe dream of the Internet: that we’ll all talk to each other in a one-on-one way. But the reality is the technology just hasn’t been there to enable it easily. It is fully here now.”

“If you’re continuing to blast 10 million emails a month with the same message to your customers, that’s probably going to continue working, but it’s already starting to decline in its effectiveness.”

(On utilizing available data) “It just makes sense to kind of get more value out of the work you’re already doing.”

“It’s harder to push out a experiential content message through Google ad words, and connect with your consumer on that level. The only real way to do that is email and social media.”

“If you don’t have a data strategy…or a personalization strategy for your customer base, then you’re going to get beat by the 10 other people that are doing that.”
