The challenge

Despite Google's announcement at the end of June, cookieless is already a reality for a large proportion of online traffic, with marketers having to overcome challenges across measurement, targeting, attribution and fraud prevention to name a few. But there are opportunities in this shift as well to see how we can rethink advertising. So our challenge to you is to reimagine one of the key features of digital marketing - personalisation.

Online ads have relied upon 3rd party cookies as a key signal to personalise the creative and increase ROAS, but what does that look like in today's cookieless world? What signals can you use to engage the right consumers for your clients? How can you make the most of publisher environments on the open web, creating messaging that resonates with the consumer and delivering results across the marketing funnel, without relying on 3rd party data?

You should use either, or both, of Teads' flagship cookieless capabilities at the heart of your campaign - Contextual Targeting and/or our Predictive Audiences, our CookielessTranslator could also be of use. The effectiveness of your work should be proven through a robust measurement plan, showcasing how the combination of media creativity and cookieless targeting created an uplift in results.
