The trend towards requiring explicit consent in marketing practices is indeed gaining traction globally, driven by growing concerns over data privacy and the increasing regulation in this area.

Here are several key factors that suggest explicit consent may become a worldwide best practice for marketers:

  1. Data Privacy Regulations: Laws like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the United States have set high standards for data privacy, requiring explicit consent for data collection and use in many cases. As more countries adopt similar regulations, explicit consent is becoming a norm.
  2. Consumer Awareness: There’s a growing awareness among consumers about data privacy issues. People are more concerned about how their data is used and are increasingly favoring companies that respect their privacy and seek explicit consent.
  3. Technological Advances: Technologies enabling better management of consent preferences, like Consent Management Platforms (CMPs), are becoming more sophisticated. This makes it easier for companies to comply with consent requirements.
  4. Corporate Responsibility and Ethics: There’s a broader shift towards ethical marketing practices. Companies are recognizing that respecting consumer privacy and seeking explicit consent is not only legally compliant but also builds trust and loyalty with their customers.
  5. Globalization of Business Practices: As companies operate across borders, they often adopt policies that comply with the strictest standards to ensure they are covered worldwide. This global approach can make explicit consent a default practice for multinational corporations.

However, the adoption of explicit consent as a global standard is not without challenges. Different regions have varying legal requirements and cultural attitudes towards data privacy. Additionally, the complexity and cost of implementing such practices can be a barrier for some businesses, especially smaller ones. Despite these challenges, the trend is clearly moving towards greater emphasis on explicit consent in marketing practices worldwide.
