Expert opinion

Q. Do Digital Advertisers start looking beyond “Last Cookie Attribution?”

Using only last click attribution to measure success is like giving entire credit to goal scorer in a football game without giving due credit to other players in the same team who passed the ball on the way to goal. Digital Marketers should focus on the entire journey and not on the final destination. Measuring engagement beyond last-click conversion is crucial to understand true ROI of ad spends as customer interactions are happening across different devices and channels. Each digital channel and each interaction has a role in the customer decision to purchase which are interrelated and interdependent and using only last click attribution may not give the correct picture. In addition to last click attribution digital marketing leaders would establish goals related to engagement, perception and brand awareness to measure performance beyond purchase or transaction.
