The role of artificial intelligence in customer communications

Artificial Intelligence has been prominent in tech news recently, and was a hot topic at SXSW.

The technology has massive potential for use in customer communication, yet will it ever be able to completely replace the need for a human element?

Data hoarding & consumer trust: are they mutually exclusive?

Remember all those 'data is the new oil' articles?

Well, to continue the tawdry analogy, is that oil burning with a clean flame?

Are companies using data to improve services for customers, or is it merely about advertising to them? And how will data brokerage and sharing need to change in the coming years?

Nowhere to hide: new privacy rules demand new thinking in UX design

The cookie law. Wasn’t that a car crash? 

Ugly banners stuck on top of beautiful designs, obscuring functionality and doing nothing for anybody except forcing a pointless click to get it out the way and get busy living.

Why trust is vital if brands are to make the most of consumer data

Anyone who has ever watched Spider-Man will know that with great power comes great responsibility.

Digital technology has given marketers access to an unfathomable amount of customer data, however it should be used in a responsible manner for risk of destroying consumer trust.

This is particularly important in our world of freemium products that rely on a value exchange of digital services in return for access to personal data.

A new Econsultancy/Acxiom report investigates consumer attitudes towards sharing their data with companies, revealing that opinion is split on whether brands can be trusted.

Only 6% of respondents in the Delivering Value in the Data Exchange Survey indicated that they had ‘a great deal of trust’ in companies to whom they provided data.

44 reasons why people don't trust your website

Why do people trust - or distrust - a website? What is it about the content, the design choices, or the usability of a website that makes it seem untrustworthy?

Last month I spotted this great thread on reddit, where people explained what makes them trust / distrust company websites. I thought I’d extract some of the suggestions, and a few quotes, and I’ve added a bunch of my own.

The usual caveats apply: all rules are there to be broken, and our own website needs to be improved.

No doubt there are a lot of other reasons, so by all means leave a comment below if I've missed something.

There are a lot to choose from, and a recent Baynard has looked into which logos are most trusted by US shoppers. 

In this post, I'll take a look at the test and the results, as well as whether we need trustmarks on ecommerce sites at all...

Facebook weaves tangled web with secret marketer tools

If a marketer mistakenly believes that its Facebook Page is a form of owned media, don't point the finger at Facebook. The company has reminded companies that their Facebook Pages and fans really belong to Facebook.

But marketers that still refuse to understand that their Facebook Pages don't belong to them, or don't want to think about the implications of this fact, are in for a rude awakening as Facebook weaves an increasingly tangled web with its efforts to turn marketer activity on its social network into cold hard cash.
