How has your data strategy changed since the rollout of data privacy-based regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) and the imminent California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)? For global brands, changes have likely been drastic. GDPR and other privacy regulations like it have handed a new set of challenges to marketers on transparency, access and intent for data that ties back to customers.

Your data (which is cumulatively collected with each login) belongs to them as m
The whole essence of fandom is being turned upside down. An emerging crop of streaming-native artists is finding its audience in a much more targeted and efficient way than via the traditional music marketing. Instead of blowing a huge budget on carpet bombing TV, radio, print, online artists and their teams are finding their exact audiences, focusing on relevance and engagement rather than reach and scale. The traditional model is great at creating household brands but so much of that brand impact is wasted on the households or household members that are not interested in the artist. Niche is the new mainstream. Targeted trumps reach. But too many label marketers fear that unless they use the mass media platforms, they will not be able to build national and global scale brands. Th...
