How to use first-party data
First-party data comes directly from your audience, such as website visitors, customers, or social media followers. This data provides insights into their behaviors and interactions with your brand. Therefore, your marketeers can tailor your marketing campaigns to better resonate with your target audience. More relevant and personalized outputs can enhance the user experience and build stronger relationships with your customers. At the end, you may have more loyalty and conversions.
Practically, first-party data can be applied in numerous ways. For instance, brands can segment their audience based on specific demographics or behaviors and send personalized emails or promotions. They can also optimize landing pages for different audience segments to ensure the content aligns with the visitor’s interest. Besides, by looking at this data, businesses can find trends for improvement, which can enhance their strategies and offer products or services that meet their customers needs.
The European Union has made regulations on data privacy and protection for its citizens because of high data concerns. Therefore, some companies have begun collecting and using third-party data with users’ permission or trying new solutions such as walker.js. Then, Google has also decided to remove third-party cookies in the beginning of 2024. However, this makes measuring campaign performance difficult for marketers.
As privacy regulations make it harder to use third-party cookies and online tracks, the value of first-party data has increased. However, with Google’s new tool, connecting and using first-party data will be easier. The tool is designed to measure campaign performance without using browser cookies or outdated techniques. How? It centralizes all data management. Additionally, while integrating data sources, advertisers will learn how to protect the consumer data privacy.
In conclusion, it won’t be available until early 2024. And, the initial launch will focus on increasing conversions and customer matching in Google Ads. However, in the following months and years, the tool may be expanded to other advertising products.
