when I am designing web form I am leaving out the title field (Mr/Ms). Asking for the title on B2B websites always seems somehow unprofessional. However, I want to have title information to personalize emails (Dear Mr X…).
My idea/approach: there are web services which receive a first name and return if the name is male or female (including probability). When a new contact registers (or for existing contacts in bulk mode) the web service will be called to fill out the title in the Mautic database.
- Stupid or not?
- Does this approach sound clever or am I missing something?
- What would be the (rough) steps to implement this?
All the best,
