Are You Ready for a World Without Cookies?

Google Website Cookies no longer allowed in 2 years

Digital marketing is officially at a turning point. Google has announced that it is planning, within two years, to no longer allow 3rd party cookies in Chrome. Since Chrome has 67% of the web browser market, this is a huge deal for marketers. Learn what the loss of the 3rd party cookie means for your marketing campaigns and what options you will still have when it comes to targeting prospective customers.


This isn’t the end! The loss of the 3rd party cookies will necessitate rethinking how we as marketers build campaigns, target prospective customers and measure success. This change will force us to have a better understanding of our target audience and see our marketing efforts beyond direct conversions. In many ways, this is more of an opportunity than a challenge.

Which Social Media Platform Do Users Spend Most of Their Time On?

TikTok has been getting a lot of attention lately as the most downloaded social app, but Facebook and YouTube are actually where users are spending the most time. However, that doesn’t mean YOUR target audience is on Facebook and YouTube. While it is important to know the trends in social media, it is even more important to know your business’s target audience. Where do they spend their time, how do they like to get their information and what moves them to raise their hand?


Personas are the ideal place to start when determining which social channels your company should invest time with. Personas not only provide a clear picture of your target audiences’ pain points but also what their day looks like, what social channels they frequent, which publications or industry associations they turn to for information and more.

When Was The Last Time You Thought About Your Purpose?

  • Do you have a motivating force that gets you up and ready to attack the world every day?

  • Do you have a North Star? Something that would drive you if everything you had today were gone?

  • It’s becoming cliche to ask if you “know your why”. But, do you have purpose? Or, do you just go aimlessly through the motions every day? 

I wake up every morning excited to help others, make their lives a little better than they were yesterday. Whether it’s a friend, my wife, my mom, an employee, and even a complete stranger. I want to provide a place to work like no other. I want to provide for my family so they don’t have needs. I want to give clients the best marketing we can so they don’t waste their money with another agency. What drives you everyday? What’s your purpose?
