All About Zero-Party Data

by Clark Boyd

Posted on Jan 21, 2022

Data handling is everyone's concern at the moment. But do you know the difference between 2nd, 3rd, 1st and now zero-party data? A recent term that's starting to appear everywhere, zero-party, or trusted, data refers to data the customer intentionally and proactively shares with a brand.   

Host Will Francis chats with digital expert Clark Boyd about how brands can treat this new form of personal preferences and information usefully and responsibly.

Clark recently discussed the topic of zero-party in a webinar. You can also view and download his presentation which has a lot of excellent visual resources.
