Google announced it would phase out third-party cookies in late 2024. Companies that have relied primarily on third-party cookies to gain customer insights and execute campaigns now face a significant data loss.
With the end of third-party cookies in sight, zero-party data is moving into the spotlight of online marketing. Zero-party data is information that customers intentionally and proactively share with your company, making it a valuable resource for personalizing your customers’ buying experience. Since it comes directly from the customer, zero-party data provides deep and accurate insights into your target audience, their buying behavior, and preferences. It’s more reliable and provides better customer insights than third-party data, giving you a competitive advantage.
