Why Encrypted Email Identifiers Will Be at the Core of Future Identity Solutions

As Chrome phases out third-party cookies and Apple restricts the use of its Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA) in the name of privacy, players across the digital advertising ecosystem are looking to alternate ways of identifying audiences. To that end, buyers and sellers are turning their eyes toward email as a key identifier that can bridge the gap from the third- to the first-party world—and do so in a privacy-friendly way.

This webinar is based on new data-driven insights and will explore advertisers’ current perceptions and use of this first-party identifier as a meaningful alternative to third-party cookies and Ad IDs. We’ll highlight key trends, challenges and opportunities for advertisers’ use of encrypted email identifiers to power their existing marketing efforts and future partnerships with publishers.


  • The Current State Of Identity
  • Advertiser Preparedness And Planning In The Face Of Changes To Audience Identity
  • The Significant Role That Email Encryption And Newsletters Will Play In Audience Targeting And Measurement
  • Leveraging Existing First-Party Data Assets And Tapping Into Publisher/Ad Tech Partners’ Own First-Party Data
  • Key Criteria Advertisers Are Considering When Partnering/Looking To Partner With Solutions Providers And Publishers

Future-Proofing Your Business In a World Without Cookies and IDFA

More than half of US advertisers we polled in December 2020 said they believed Chrome’s phaseout of third-party cookies and Apple’s restricted use of IDFA was disruptive to the advertising industry. Four months later, in our April 2021 survey of US advertisers, we found 71% of advertisers agreed these changes would benefit the industry in the long run.

So advertisers are optimistic about these changes, but the big question remains: are they ready?

To better understand how advertisers are approaching these changes and pivoting their practices, Advertiser Perceptions has put together an expert panel to discuss the current state of identity, advertisers’ state of readiness for changes, what’s being done to address these changes, new targeting and measurement tactics advertisers are planning to use, why first-party data is so important and what’s being done to collect it, store it and activate it.


  • The Current State of Identity
  • Advertisers’ State of Readiness
  • How Are Changes Being Addressed
  • New Targeting and Measurement Tactics
  • The Importance of First-Party Data

  • Market adoption of specific measurement methodologies
  • Obstacles to usage of measurement methodologies

From Paralysis to Scenario Planning in the Coronavirus Economy

Since mid-March, Advertiser Perceptions has been tracking US advertisers’ reactions and planned responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our six waves of research explored everything from advertisers’ initial paralysis to their future plans as they prepare their investments for the second half of 2020.

The landscape they’ll be entering back into is nothing like the one they left. Marketers and agencies looking to restart their ad programs in H2 2020 must be ready to navigate regional restrictions, political ad spending, holiday ad spending and reinvested Olympic ad dollars. The bottom line: There are plenty of pitfalls and potholes.

New Trends & Practices To Be Explored in the Webinar…


  • Who will win the race for reassigned Olympics budgets?
  • Will digital/ecommerce drive the 2020 holiday season?
  • How can regional advertisers eliminate complexity and allow for more contingencies?
  • Will data and insights determine advertisers’ media partner selection moving forward?
  • Is flexibility a need-for-now fad or a new foundation for media programs?
  • How will OTT and CTV keep growing past the pandemic?
  • Is “good-enough” creative the new branding / performance standard

Coronavirus, Advertising And The New Normal

In our first Coronavirus Effect on Advertising webinar we had a broad discussion on the issues we saw as immediate results of the illness and widespread quarantine. Our overarching theme was that the industry, like much of society, was unprepared for it, which resulted in knee-jerk reactions.
In the second wave of our research, advertisers have their feet under them, and are acclimating to the new normal. Unfortunately, that new normal is an intensification of the economic insecurity we saw in the first wave.

Featuring Wave 2 Results From Our Coronavirus Report

Webinar Topics of Discussion: 
  • How insecure are advertisers with regard to when this crisis will end?
  • Are media brands doing a good job perfecting their partnership skills?
  • How will brand and performance tactics change in the Coronavirus culture?
  • And much more…

The Coronavirus Effect On Advertising

The Coronavirus pandemic has completely upended the U.S. advertising market. It has had substantial effects on people’s lives and livelihoods, and it has entirely transformed the way companies do business. In the advertising industry, we’ve all felt the immediate effects: Cancelled events, meetings and business trips. Work-from-home mandates that include hunkering down inside our houses and apartments alongside our entire families. And yes, even paused and pulled advertising campaigns.

But there are longer-term effects that must also be considered. To get a true pulse on how the advertising industry is being affected now and in the coming months, we’re going direct to marketers and agencies to understand what’s being done. This research will be shared in our upcoming report, “Coronavirus Effect on Advertising Report,” and it will be updated bi-monthly to give you the latest insights and trends on how COVID-19 is affecting everything from ad spending patterns across media, geographies and formats to how companies are going to market with their ad creative and ad placements.

Featuring Wave 1 Results From Our Coronavirus Report

Report Highlights To Be Explored in the Webinar…

  • Advertisers expect the worst of the effects to be felt in Q2 2020, but this is likely to be felt for several quarters as two-thirds also expect the Coronavirus to result in reduced ad spending in 2021.
  • The effects on “Hunker-Down-at-Home” and “Out-and-About” Verticals.
  • Linear TV Gets Hit Hard Early, But That Will Change.
  • Rapid Changes in Media Consumption Further Accelerate the Shift to Over-the-Top (OTT) and Connected TV (CTV).
  • A Focus on Provable Media Means Another Win for the Walled Gardens.

  • Why and when does a traditional marketing brand start dipping their toes into D2C?
  • How is D2C advertising typically bought?
  • Which media types get the most D2C ad spending (in terms of overall dollars) and why?

The State of Ad Measurement… Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

August 2018  If advertising’s impact cannot be accurately measured, then media brands can’t effectively monetize their inventory, and advertisers will continue to hold back ad dollars and resist adopting new media formats.

Advertising measurement is no longer simply the purview of researchers and data scientists. Recent insights from interviews of more than 300 marketers and agency professionals show that inadequate measurement has real-world implications for where and how ad dollars are spent.

Advertiser Perceptions is the first to quantify advertisers’ attitudes about this critical topic with The 2018 State of Advertising Measurement Report. In this new webinar, we will share findings on:

  • What the market identifies as ad measurement’s biggest challenges
  • The most valuable types of measurement, as indicated by marketers and agencies
  • Attributes advertisers most rely upon for selecting measurement providers
  • Who the leading ad measurement providers are
  • A deep-dive into advertiser opinions on cross-platform measurement
  • Where improvement is most needed and from where innovation will come
