Brooks Brothers Email Preferences & Re Permission Strategy

Published on

We realized the following and worked quickly to build this into our strategic plan:
1. Listen to when customers opt-in and out of messaging – across every channel
2. Give customers control over marketing frequency
3. Listen not just to opt-ins and opt-outs, but to the type of messaging customers want to receive
4. Give customers the ability to manage preferences not just on the website, but wherever they interact with your brand
5. Ensure that the preference data marketers have is in a single place and is always up to date
