The second-annual Analytics Rising Virtual Conference approached the topics of the day with a certain… seriousness. In a time of increasingly stringent data privacy regulations, the demise of third-party cookie tracking, coupled with the pressures of managing a runaway martech stack, this year’s agenda resonated with the nearly 1,000 marketers who signed on to be part of this day-long event. There were three laser-focused sessions that can be distilled into three key takeaways for marketers:

  1. In a cookieless world, you need to bring customers closer to your brand and identity is the fuel that will drive your martech stack.
  2. Data-driven attribution is not only possible, but it’s also essential to understanding customers and ultimately bringing them closer to you.
  3. Underpinning the need and urgency to bring customers closer to your brand: marketers must fully understand the workings of their martech stack, and their customer data in order to plot a course towards incremental gains in digital intelligence.

Each session ended with clear and actionable insights to help marketers understand the immediate next steps towards digital maturity.
