While Google recently announced a delay in blocking 3rd party cookies until 2023, many digital players have already begun to prepare for the new conditions. How to collect and analyze self-collected data? How to convince people to share such data with us? LifeStyles, an Australian condom brand, has found a pretty unusual way of doing this. They created the Publicly Traded & STI Index project, which analyzed searches (Google Trends) for information on sexually transmitted infections and adjusted condom prices to its level. The more interest in information about STI, the lower the price of the products. Consumers could observe the index level on an ongoing basis or they could leave their data, set a price level they were interested in and wait for a notification.
LifeStyles combined the use of up-to-date data from the search engine with the collection of data from consumers and, additionally, with ecommerce.

It is a channel that allows for a lot of flexibility, personalization and, above all, it is in our control, we can manage it ourselves. Below is an example of how Marriott used e-mails to communicate with its consumers during a pandemic, i.e. at a time when the use of tourist services was very difficult. From my own experience, I was very impressed with the announcements from one of the European airlines. From the e-mails signed by its president, I learned how the airline cares for its employees, how it is preparing for the opening moment so that it can provide services again in a safe way for everyone. It definitely built my trust in them. CLICK
