What will the elimination of cookie-based tracking mean for your digital campaign measurement?

Technology providers have started to restrict access to third party cookies in certain browsers. While these moves are designed to provide greater consumer privacy and enhanced site experience, they also affect common methods of ad exposure measurement. Without preparation, this could mean errors in the reach and frequency counts used in planning and measurement, and control groups containing people who were exposed to advertising. This could result in decreasing impact results or an inability to measure across publishers and understand overlaps and synergies.

At Kantar we are working to ensure minimal impact for our clients. We have developed a triple-coverage strategy so we can continue to accurately and comprehensively measure advertising exposure:

  1. Direct integrations with a broad range of partners
  2. Technical innovations proactively implemented
  3. Analytical models to fill in gaps where measurement is not complete

Kantar Direct Integrations, our industry-wide coalition, partners with the biggest digital publishers, media companies and most well-known apps to ensure you can plan, buy and optimise your digital media with confidence.

The majority of marketers agree that the inability to track digital media via cookies will disrupt the industry, especially media publishers.
