How to harness first-party data and win a cookie-free future

How prepared is your organization for the imminent loss of third-party data?

Are you ready for first-party data to take center stage in your marketing strategy?

Perhaps you feel unsure of how to use first-party data?

While removing cookies away will reduce your access to third-party data, you can still strike the right balance with your acquisition strategies and provide your customers with highly transformative, personalized experiences.

On April 27, I ran a webinar with Vishal Maru, Vice President of Digital Solutions at iQuanti. He explained how organizations can embrace the power of first-party data and better connect with their customers.

Here is a summary of the webinar. To access the entire presentation, complete the form.

How will advertisers be affected?

The changing privacy landscape has a significant impact on the digital marketing ecosystem and is caused by:

  • A change in the customer’s mindset.
  • Privacy regulations, such as the General Data Protection Act, the Consumer Privacy Protection Act, etc.
  • Privacy changes from major players, such as Google and Apple.

What does this mean for advertisers

Reducing and removing third-party data is likely to:

  • Ineffective targeting.
  • Measurement and attribution challenges.
  • Inability to track reach and frequency.

All this leads to lower campaign efficiency, lower ROI for advertising, and scope limits.

Why first party data?

First party data is the only surefire solution during these uncertain privacy changes, in terms of:

  • health.
  • relevance.
  • Availability.
  • cost-effectiveness.
