Google and Reddit Offer New Tools for Advertisers - Chief Marketer

Google and Reddit Offer New Tools for Advertisers - Chief Marketer | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
Similar to other platforms, including Facebook and TikTok, Google has created new advertising and ecommerce tools targeted at small- and medium-sized businesses. One feature to be added soon is in-store sales measurement and smart bidding, which uses machine learning to optimize bids based on specific KPIs. Advertisers will be able to upload first-party sales data to assist in targeting people who would be most likely to make purchases.

The platform is also adding functionality that will show online shoppers where and when they can get items that are out of stock. And businesses will be able to add specific information in Google search and on their profile pages, including whether takeout, curbside pickup, in-store shopping and no-contact delivery is offered.

Why use Google to reach your own consumers when you can do this yourself...while respecting your consumers' privacy?

Say goodbye to browser cookies - Google wants to give you 'trust tokens' - The American Genius

Say goodbye to browser cookies - Google wants to give you 'trust tokens' - The American Genius | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
Google is proposing a separate solution: trust tokens. They’re “smart” iterations of cookies that will validate your access to a specific website without tracking you once you leave that page. This way, you get to keep your website-specific data–passwords, usernames, and preferences–without having your privacy encroached upon.

The real catch for trust tokens is that they don’t actually identify you the way that cookies do, and while some of the side effects of trust tokens may resemble cookie use–e.g., advertisers knowing you clicked on their ad–tokens are a decidedly less personal, more private way to access web content.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

The real question beneath this approach: will the trust tokens have value? Will they be tradeable? Watch this space!
