Preference Collection Best Practices: How Consumers Reveal Preferences

Type: Blog

Preference Management Video Series

Now that we’ve established that preferences are self-reported consumer opinions related to potential interactions between customer and company, the next consideration is how you might go about gathering preferences. When consumers opt-in with their preferences on things like product interest, channel of choice and frequency of communication, your company will want to be prepared for that conversation and follow best practices to get best outcomes.


The conversation the consumer wants to have with you is a progressive one, that reflects their evolving interests in what your business has to offer and their perceptions of what benefits they’ll get in return for sharing their information.


Time and again, research shows that when you’re looking for consumers to provide information, they’re more likely to do so when the opt-in method in presented in context, offers clear benefits, and is easy to understand and complete.



In this video, Chief Strategist Eric Holtzclaw describes the different ways customers reveal their preferences and the strategies you can use to leverage the intersection of consumer and company interests.


In the following weeks, we’ll continue to roll out videos to guide you through the implementation of preference management. If you haven’t yet explored our Resource Center, you can download the Implementation of Preference Management whitepaper here.
