Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to grow customer relationships and focus on attracting, connecting and developing – focusing on everything I do for clients.

I am the co-founder of AdTech Cares, a company that uses advertising technology to fight misinformation and better protect human beings. The 50+ companies present the truth about COVID-19, support fact-based journalism, and ensure that it is a matter of black live worldwide. I am also a founding member of Chief, a private network specifically designed for senior women leaders – VP level CEO – to strengthen their experience in the C-suite and influence change from top to bottom. This year I joined Kindred – a network of responsible leaders – as a founding member in 2021.
In your view, what are some of the top skills needed to improve B2B Chief Customer Service?
Customers need a partner who can listen, advise and be creative to move their business forward. These are not difficult skills – they are occasionally used. Particularly as Adtech is changing and improving, partners need to listen and act as advisors to each customer’s needs, regardless of the type of lettering in the ad.
Releasing curiosity, making lasting connections, adapting to the unknown, and being an informed person are skills that contribute to success. Not just outsiders, employees who come in and listen to the talk often overcome problems quickly and are motivated to do new things on behalf of clients. Our customers, like B2B customers, live their lives as consumers. B2B Leaders The benefits of B2C companies listening and responding to their customers are paramount.
Our customers chose Smartly.io because our customers focused on planning our product portfolio. We work closely with them to ensure that we solve our problems for them – technology, consumer behavior and regulation are constantly changing, especially in this fast-paced social media platform. ተጨማሪ ያንብቡ ግምገማ ከማስገባትዎ በፊት ይህን መተግበሪያ መጫን አለብዎት። Customer centering at Smarly.io is the key to our rapid growth and will continue to be the cornerstone of our strategy.
Adtech, like most sectors, has a huge diversity problem. We have made progress by acknowledging that there is a problem. However, we have not yet seen the simplest steps to take – and 2022 is the year that must happen.
There is always something that can be done by law – however – the Adtech industry should not be expected to make a difference, especially if we are organized as an industry. We must share best practices and not use our approach as a competitive advantage. Industrial bodies can develop integrated metrics to help companies better understand how companies operate in terms of industry-wide DEI standards, whether with employees, or in person faces and expressions in ads, or in terms of targeting and AI.

Marketing Technology News MarTech Interview with Rachel Meranus, CMO at Transfix
We, as scientists, must think in our own organizations – in the same way that the experimental and experimental side of technology. DEI can be scary if it is not difficult for an enterprise to digest, let alone the whole industry. However, we must give grace to ourselves; Without trial and error, progress is impossible. We need to examine our approach, test the bias and harms in the algorithm, continue to optimize – and then share our lessons for the betterment of others, pushing the whole industry forward. That’s when we see systemic change in our industry.
What are some of the data privacy practices that should be fundamental to brand marketers in the process of evolution to meet the privacy needs of their users and environment regulators?
Adtech has finally done a great job of communicating with customers to make their online experiences better and easier by using technology. Brand users often do not understand why when they click on “opt-in” or “track cookies”. The result is a one-sided view, in which consumers see only ‘scary’ behavior from advertising, from small to no context – leading to contempt for information privacy. In 2022 and beyond, smart advertisers will change that.
how? We need to be honest about what the industry is doing with consumer information, and most importantly, provide consumers with clear insights, lessons and resources to understand why their information is being used and why.
Still talking about a few major challenges that affect customer success and the way teams face customer challenges, and what processes / marketing-sales technology can alleviate them?
There are a few tools that have the full customer experience – we are working with the best tools at Smartly.io, but the industry is still experiencing a delay in awareness and communication time to respond to customer needs / concerns. Systems can only do so much; However, it is important for systems interactions to develop significant and meaningful insights, as well as for responding to a variety of decision makers, both internally and externally.
I say we are leveraging those skills that data scientists use to effectively deliver customized advertising information to brands, facilitate and lead to better customer and employee experience by delivering personalized ads to brands. . We are doing well at Smartly.io, but I strongly believe that this is a challenge that needs to be addressed in the industry, because complexity and related set of tools are moving at the speed of our customers.
Some final ideas and marketing tips before we summarize?

As Adtech’s location continues to change, brands are looking for partners who have their finger on the pulse of creativity. I also look forward to more thoughtful discussions on the information that trademarks share (reducing misinformation in the process) and their role in verifying DEI in markets and advertising spaces.
