One-Third of UK Marketers Use CDP for Email Data: Validity Survey

We have no real news today, Dear Reader, unless you care that Dropbox is buying file sharing service DocSend for $165 million. So let’s look at surveys instead. Validity reports that 33% of UK marketers store their email data in a CDP, which is impressive but still behind CRM (53%) and email systems (50%). Only 58% collect customer names in addition to email, and even fewer collect phone number, location, postal address, product interests, or preferred contact channel.
