As the digital landscape shifts, so too must the strategies of marketers and agencies. Data privacy, previously on the back burner for many businesses, is now front and center. With less than a year before the third-party cookie becomes history, there’s no time to lose. By prioritizing a proactive data strategy and capitalizing on AI capabilities, businesses can not only navigate but thrive in this evolving ecosystem.
“The Time For ‘Wait And See’ Is Past. By taking advantage of the latest technology, you can help clients build seamless, personalized experiences that accelerate their marketing goals—empowering them not only to adapt to the changing marketing ecosystem but also thrive in it.”

Adswerve’s Chief Revenue Officer, Scott Sullivan, recently shed light on this transformation in his latest Forbes Agency Council article. Here, he dives deep into how AI-powered tools, when used effectively, can leverage first-party data to optimize marketing outcomes.
Key Takeaways from the Forbes Article:
While many businesses may feel daunted by the thought of moving from third-party data reliance, the transition may be smoother than they think.
1. Embrace First-Party Data: Most companies are already sitting on a goldmine of first-party data. The challenge lies in harnessing this scattered data. By using platforms like Google Marketing Platform and Adobe Marketing Cloud, businesses can seamlessly consolidate their data. Agencies play a pivotal role in facilitating this transition.
2. Earn Consumer Trust: Transparency is crucial. If consumers perceive value in sharing their data, they are more likely to do so willingly. Offering tangible incentives can bridge the trust gap.
3. Prioritize Privacy: Embracing a privacy-first approach not only ensures compliance but is also a strategic move. It’s a win-win, building brand reputation while fostering consumer trust.
4. Harness Technology: With a robust foundation of first-party data and a privacy-centric strategy in place, the next step is to capitalize on it. AI-powered tools and platforms, like Google Analytics 4, can pinpoint potential customers, optimizing campaigns for better results.
