Instead of relying on cookie-driven user data, contextual advertiser ads are in the area where the audience is visiting. This targeting method is based on an algorithm for selecting ad placements based on keywords, website content and other metadata. As a result, ads are delivered based on user preferences. For example, if a user is reading an article about makeup trends, contextual advertising can advertise on the page as related products. Since the user is reading about makeup, they may be interested in cosmetic products, so they will be receptive to advertising.

Contextual advertising is effective because it is related to current user thinking. Contextual advertising allows you to target a specific category and reach users who are currently thinking about that topic. This means that your ad will appear when someone is in a position to accept it.

Contextual advertising is growing rapidly with improvements to online privacy regulations, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCP). Although some browsers may want to stop tracking a third-party cookie, feature targeting does not lose its usefulness. A behavioral targeting that uses cookies to track website visitors and target digital ads to recipients can be used in conjunction with a contextual target. Introducing contextual advertising to your existing behavioral strategy can increase your advertising campaigns, because contextual targeting has unique benefits.

Historical analysis has shown that placing our ads in the right context can increase user engagement from four to 10. One of the reasons why contextual advertising is so effective is when it comes to the right mindset, reaching out to people and creating a positive customer experience. Consumption of a person’s content indicates a purpose over a period of time. Contextual advertising serves that purpose and serves as the ad for the moment you are ready to hear about it. This context distinguishes a target from a character, which is targeted at a person based on their user data.

Contextual advertising also gives marketers the opportunity to target specific situations by referring to a topic or a set of keywords. For example, in the case of makeup, a salesman may want to create a value line between users and mascara by emphasizing that mascara is vegan. Contextual advertising allows them to point to keywords related to vegan makeup to accurately target a customer’s profile. This strategy is effective because it ensures that your ads are presented to consumers who receive unique features of the product or service.

Contextual advertising uses a unique method that brings certain benefits to be met rather than competing with traditional strategies. Both methods have different strengths that markets can use depending on their campaign goals and the campaign environment. By balancing the two methods, markets can reach the target audience more effectively.

For example, an advertiser wants to introduce a contextual strategy when targeting a geographical area that limits cookies, as in some parts of Europe. However, advertisers may continue to use behavioral strategies in regions that still allow cookies. Balancing methods allows markets to reach audiences in the most efficient way, depending on a variety of factors, such as region.

The methods can also be used together. One strategy is to target the context and use the features together to build a resilient audience. Contextual targeting allows you to reach your audience in less time than a cookie, and in areas where cookies are still widespread, you can build and notify your audience list in the future.

For example, find an audience in non-cookie areas, such as your first backup line. Then use the redesign to capture cookies (consent). If they are in third parties, use that second backup line to re-plan, as there may be more locations with cookies.

The privacy policy does not mean the end of the target audience. New rules stimulate creativity in the target audience, and ensure that those target strategies are in line with future trends and policy changes. Introducing contextual targeting into your marketing strategy will create opportunities to increase campaign performance by experimenting with new targeting strategies, and will prioritize markets when new rules are developed and technology is improved by combining context with behavioral targeting.
