Card-linked marketing, explained

All of the card-based digital transactions we make now leave behind a pretty accurate picture of our buying habits, tastes and preferences. Card-linked marketing uses that real purchase data to target specific consumers based on real buying behavior. While keeping individual bank data private and secure, advertisers are able to cut down on waste by zeroing in on active buyers in their category at scale. Sponsor content by Cardlytics.

Why UX is the next battlefront in the war for agency talent

UX is the next battleground in the war for agent talent. David Eastman, partner MCD Partners and formed JWT N.A. CEO, says that's because of a palpable shift in the culture that has put UX and experience above tech. That doesn't mean engineers aren't important but that experience is more important. On the agency side, UX is more important than ever as clients prize testing and campaign running. But agencies seem to be getting the short end of the stick: They pay less, and, more important, as Deutsch ecd of platforms Tara Greer says, the work tends to be more monotonous and less interesting. One fix would be to prize product development above all at agencies.
