It’s like the restaurant owner in that little Italian place you’ve been going to for years. You and your family walk in. They greeted you warmly, took you to the table in the front window, and brought picture books for the children.

That is personal. It is the best marketing method because it can provide you with the best experience-an experience that will allow you to visit again.

For the past 50 years, digital technology has been working hard to provide us with the capabilities of nearby restaurants. But the interesting thing is that, like many other technologies, digital marketers have yet to use new tools to help them realize their vision of becoming the most popular Italian restaurant in their product version.

Why? Because we confuse personalization and personalization.

This knowledge is based on data or more specifically, based on quality data. Just because I know your name does not mean that I know you. Just because I grabbed your content consumption data from shopping sites doesn’t mean I know what you’re currently buying.

To deliver a personalized message, you first need to know information about the recipient. This requires high-quality data, @Robert_Rose said via @CMIContent. #marketing personnel Click to tweet
