Multi-touch Attribution without Relying on Cookies

Every marketer wants to accurately measure the impact of her advertising spend. And “digital” was supposed to make that really easy (especially for digital advertising). But, that promise has rarely been realized, and it’s becoming even more difficult to track users across touchpoints thanks to privacy regulations (GDPR, CCPA, etc.) and browser updates that block or aggressively expire cookies.

At this month’s WAW, Dr. Joe Sutherland, the head of data science at Search Discovery, will review these challenges and then provide an overview of how marketers can use randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to get to robust, reliable attribution without user-level data.

Zoom Guidelines:

  • Please use the desktop app and turn on your camera (if you have one and are comfortable with that).
  • During the talk and Q+A period, please place yourself on mute.
  • If you have a question please place it in chat.
  • After the Q+A period you will receive an invitation to join a small “breakout room” to talk with a random small group of attendees. The speakers will remain in the main room.
    • Accepting the breakout room invite is optional, but if you do accept you’ll be placed in the sub-room for approximately 10 minutes until the room expires or you leave.
    • You may leave the breakout room at any time to return to the main room or simply leave the event. Other attendees in the breakout room should understand this is not a judgement of their conversational skills.
    • We will do up to 2 rounds of this networking, after which everyone will return to the main room.
