Just 13% of Marketers Are Fully Prepared for Privacy Impact on Ad Targeting

Despite more hand-wringing than bell-playing octopus quartet, Ad Theorent reports that just 13% of marketers say their company is “very well prepared” for the impact of privacy regulations on their programmatic ad buying.  The most popular solutions are capturing more first-party data (53%) and contextual targeting (49%) – even though only 5% say contextual targeting leads to success.  If you’re keeping score: 11% are running programmatic on a CDP, compared with 18% on a DMP and 69% on a DSP.
