How to prepare for the end of third-party cookies

Whilst Google develops the Privacy Sandbox as a long-term solution to the end of third-party cookies, some short-term viable marketing tactics are serving as immediate replacements.

First-party data collection

First-party data refers to information you collect from your customers, site visitors, and app users during their interactions with your products and services. As third-party cookies are phased out, having a strong first-party data collection strategy will be crucial for digital campaigns moving forward, as they will ensure you have compliant, actionable data on your audience’s activity.

If you rely on borrowing data for your campaigns, your first-party data will now need to be your bread and butter in your marketing efforts. Focus on the value you can offer your audience in exchange for their data. This can range from content, discounts, or trials, to name a few, that can be used to improve your first-party data collection strategy.

Account-based marketing (ABM)

With third-party cookies gone, this will result in drastically reduced scope to track and retarget prospects. As such, more refined approaches, such as ABM, focusing on relevancy will need to be more widely adopted.

Focus on prioritizing which accounts are the most compatible for your organization, and focus on obtaining the best first-party insight into these accounts. ABM goes hand-in-hand with a strong first-party data strategy, and with this data, you can build meaningful relationships with high-value accounts, offering effective solutions by utilizing creative tactics.

Reverse IP tracking technology

Organizations that utilize reverse IP tracking technology, or website visitor identification software, can obtain in-depth first-party data on their website visitor’s activity. With this, they can effectively enrich every aspect of their marketing activity by having data-informed insights.
