Browser cookies have evolved from their humble origins nearly three decades ago to become an everyday part of online life. However, what began as a way to improve online user experience has turned into a privacy concern for many, and the digital world is changing toward a “cookie-less future.”
Many people have had conflicting reactions to the news that website cookies will basically be obsolete by January 2022. However, as of 2022, many websites still rely on cookies to collect customer information. Companies that are not afraid of a cookie-less future have already started looking for new ways to accumulate customer data and improve customer experiences, and they are proven to be more accurate and successful.
For almost a year, publishers, businesses, and advertisers have been anticipating the retirement of the third-party tracking cookie.
What does the future hold?
Advertisers and publishers from all parts of the ecosystem are about to be thrown back into the world of first-principles advertising, using tried-and-true approaches like contextual targeting. Ensuring that adverts display next to context-appropriate material has been out of favor for a while, but in a post-cookie world, it will be one of the most successful methods for audience segmentation.

Furthermore, advertisers have known their customers for far too long as an abstract field of data points bereft of true humanity. Performance marketers, particularly those who have relied on direct connections between media spending and conversions for a long time, are going to struggle to shift to a world with less solid attribution data.
Local-market advertisers and media organizations, which lack the same depth of data and knowledge as their national counterparts, will rely on technology to justify their lower media margins. Part of this could entail hiring local-market experts to assist with complex campaigns, as well as leveraging workflow automation technologies to streamline labor-intensive operations.
Companies that deliberately harness their most significant resources and maximize the value of their data and relationships wherever possible will thrive in the post-cookie advertising future. Advertisers and publishers can be geared up for the post-cookie world by envisioning it now.
Enhancing Customer Experience (CX) in a cookie-less future
The simple truth is that organizations don’t require cookies to collect customer data in order to improve customer experience and drive growth. There’s no need to be concerned about a world without cookies. There are considerably more advanced choices available that are far better at maximizing customer experiences and assisting businesses in meeting their growth objectives.
