    The ThinkNow Media Difference

    ThinkNow Media does not rely on cookies or contextual advertising. Our zero-party survey data spans over a decade of longitudinal data and is updated monthly to ensure accuracy.

    Cookie data’s issues are well known and documented but the real issue is that cookies are going away. With ThinkNow Media, you can begin to sever your reliance on cookie data.

    Contextual advertising has continued to rise in popularity as companies prepare for the sunsetting of cookies. However, contextual advertising is becoming increasingly difficult to rely on as multicultural audiences continue to have an outsized affect on broader American culture. No longer can digital media buyers rely on Spanish-language music as a proxy for Latinx audiences as Spanish-language artist, Bad Bunny, is the number one most streamed artist for the second year in a row. Proving that all Spanish speakers and non-Spanish speakers alike are enjoying his music.

    Zero-Party Data

    Zero-party data is data that customers intentionally share with us. This includes purchase intentions, personal context and communication preferences. The best way to collect zero-party data is to ask for information in exchange for something of value. In ThinkNow’s case, this is through a survey with an exchange of a monetary incentive.
    The main difference between first-party data and zero-party data is explicit consent. First-party data gives you insights from analytics and user behaviors, but it is gathered passively, and users may not be aware their data is being collected. Zero-party data is handed over intentionally.
