DMP - Audience Segmentation Strategy & Audience Testing

A VERY high level intro on the most common segmentation strategies that are used across many marketers as well as a audience testing framework for beginners.
The audience testing sheet that is included as a bonus, is a great tool for anybody that manages a Data management platform or does any audience testing across various media channels.

At the same time, if you find yourself being a bit overwhelmed with all of the 1st 2nd or 3rd party data targeting options from, I'd highly recommend using a service like ClearSegment to understand various data providers - it's data collection methodologies as well as their individual segments.

  15. 15. WHAT ARE COOKIES? 15 COOKIES Cookies are small text files that collect certain pieces of information about online users. Each time a user visits a new website, cookies are created by the Internet browser and saved onto the user’s computer. When that user returns to the website, the cookies will help it to remember certain things, such as what content the user viewed and which pages they accessed. FIRST-PARTY COOKIES First-party cookies are created by the websites we visit directly. DMP 101 THIRD-PARTY COOKIES Third-party cookies, also referred to as tracking cookies, are collected not by the website, but by advertisers.
  16. 16. FROM COOKIES TO USER IDS USER IDs Cookies can perform a vast number of functions, however, they are restricted in size. In order to address this issue, some cookies now only contain a unique ID. By storing a cookie with a unique ID on the user’s computer, advertisers and other companies can then store the rest of the information about the user on their own systems. Example of how different advertising platforms map and sync cookies. COOKIE SYNCING Cookies are domain specific, which means those created by one third-party tracker (e.g. cannot be read by another third-party tracker (e.g. For advertisers, this restricts the potential amount of information they can collect about a user. Therefore, in order to accurately target an audience, advertisers need to incorporate user data from various domains and sources. Advertisers are able to achieve this by mapping user IDs from one system to another. DMP 101
  17. 17. COLLECTING USER INFORMATION & MATCHING 17DMP 101 IT ALL STARTS WITH THE BROWSER 1. A user visits a website that contains an ad. 2. The browser sends an ad request to an ad exchange. 3. The ad exchange sends back the request and creates a (third-party) cookie. 4. The ad exchange redirects (http redirect) the ad request to the pixel URL on the DMP’s side, passing the user ID in the URL parameter. The DMP reads its own cookie, or creates a new cookie, and then saves the user ID passed from the ad exchange along with its own user ID in the so-called cookie- matching table. 5. If the sync is bidirectional, the DMP makes the redirect back to the ad exchange, passing its own ID in the URL parameter. The ad exchange receives this request, reads its own cookie, and stores the DMP ID along with its own ID in the cookie-matching table. 6. Now, both the ad exchange and DMP have each other’s’ user IDs in each other’s databases.
