Conversion Tracking Is Getting Harder

It’s clear that conversion tracking is vital to your digital advertising. It ensures that advertisers know where an install or purchase (or really any other data point) originated from, which helps determine the quality of the source. It also offers a better understanding of campaign performance for future optimization. But, challenges abound, as the advertising landscape is undergoing a sweeping transformation. For instance:

  • Both Safari and Chrome are limiting its cookie use, restricting companies’ abilities to track people around the web.
  • More and more people are using ad blockers, which can be problematic for businesses trying to reach their audiences, and tech platforms looking to demonstrate the value of their ad tools. 
  • Data privacy regulations like GDPR and CCPA are becoming the norm, which stops companies from mining a consumer’s personal data.

People now have more control over their data—which is great—but the marketer’s task has also gotten harder.

While there are many approaches to this problem—including publisher tools, such as Google Analytics, or third-party analytics providers–they’re either costly to implement, require a complex setup, or don’t have a multi-channel view. To succeed in this challenging regulatory environment and understand the true behavior leading up to a purchase, you need a configurable solution that can track multiple events throughout the funnel.
