In a Forbes expert panel feature on TikTok, Hawthorne-Castro weighed in with advice on technique, urging brands to "try to be creative in your camera angles when capturing imagery of your brand experience so that viewers can feel as if they are the ones in the driver's seat." Hawthorne SVP of Marketing and Client Development Christian Jones wrote an article for VentureBeat on what marketers are missing about zero-party data. As Jones observed, "When customers share zero-party data, it's an invitation to personalize their experience on their terms. That's a gift from the consumer to the brand, and it's an opportunity for a paradigm shift to a fair value exchange model."
