Good morning, welcome to Friday!

If your business falls under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), you need to have a plan in place to ensure you adhere to the regulations across your digital marketing. Google has announced that it will offer restricted data processing to enable businesses to comply with CCPA. With restricted data processing enabled, Google will act as an affected business’ (advertiser, publisher or partner) data processing service provider. 

That’s not all the news we have for you from Google — yesterday, the company rolled out AMP for Email support on the Gmail app for Android and iOS users. AMP for Email, also called dynamic email, allows users to interact directly with email content without leaving the body of the email. Dynamic email also allows marketers to extend the lifetime of their emails and keep customers up-to-date automatically. 

Enterprise email and marketing automation provider iPost has launched an integration with Adobe’s Magento commerce cloud.

Pro Tip

Experiment with transparency to negotiate new requests

“A lot of marketers are plagued by too much work with little transparency into what they’ve already committed to doing. By visualizing the work of everyone on your team and making it transparent and visible to everyone, the team can begin having trade-off conversations when new requests come in. This can be done with a board on the wall or a simple online tool,” explains Stacey Ackerman of Agilify.

“Rather than blindly filling up their plates, it can become a negotiation-type of conversation: ‘I can add that request, but here’s the impact it will have on the other thing we’re working on right now for you.’ With this experiment, track how many requests you were able to negotiate – to start at a later time or not at all – with these new shared insights. You can also measure the results to determine if this new approach has helped the team complete more work with fewer interruptions.”
