How To Harness First-Party Data & Win In A Cookieless 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?

Maybe you’re feeling unsure of how to use first-party data?

While cookies going 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 high-converting, personalized experiences.

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

What This Means For Advertisers

The reduction and removal of third-party data has the potential to cause:

  • Ineffective targeting.
  • Challenges with measurement & attribution.
  • An inability to track reach and frequency.

These all lead to lower campaign efficiencies, lower advertising ROI, and scale limits.

Why First-Party Data?

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

  • Accuracy.
  • Relevancy.
  • Availability.
  • Cost-effectiveness.

How To Build A Roadmap For Implementation

Organizations face challenges with effectively leveraging first-party data for digital marketing.

These challenges are:
