Our Managing Editor, Bill Hanifin, sat down with Richard Jones, Chief Marketing Officer of Cheetah Digital, to simply learn more about Cheetah Digital, but the conversation transpired into so much more. It was a candid discussion about the incredible innovation in loyalty software, data stewardship, and how loyalty is playing a major role in this next generation of marketing strategies that are dedicated to nurturing the next loyal customer.
Mr. Jones is highly energetic and excited about his role in these innovations and the conversation reflects it. The conversation had so much to digest that we decided to break it into two parts. Enjoy Part 1 today and look for Part 2 later this week as we dive into Forrester's zero-party data initiative, how tracking cookies will be used in this new data-sensitive landscape, more discussions around data and consumer transparency, and the data for value exchange for the consumer.
