In-game advertising solution specialist, Anzu.io is partnering with Digiseg, a Copenhagen-based company, to bring cookie-free data to in-game advertisers.
Ad-blocking is on the rise and third-party cookies are about to become obsolete, making it infinitely harder for advertisers to find and reach the right audiences. Digiseg is prepared for the cookie-less era, gathering information at scale, free of personal data, without tracking people, and outside the scope of GDPR.
Anzu’s recent partnership with advertising giant WPP introduces accepted advertising standards, such as ad viewability, brand lift measurement, fraud detection, and user privacy protection, to the gaming space.
The collaboration between Anzu and Digiseg will allow advertisers to continue to target their gaming audience and meet their business goals. Brand advertisers are increasingly including in-game advertising as part of their multifaceted strategies, making precise audience targeting essential. Digiseg is able to segment in-game traffic with the same taxonomy and targeting power as standard sources, identifying real consumer needs based on household characteristics.
“As a global data provider excelling in the cookie-free space, our technology will have a unique possibility to provide agencies and advertisers with precise audience data within Anzu’s gaming platform,” explains Bent Rønde Jacobsen, COO of Digiseg. “Digiseg provides audiences across many verticals and will deliver the same high targeting power that today enables clients to reach strong campaign KPIs in various DSPs. We are sure this partnership will create a great benefit for Anzu and their clients and we look forward to serving them.”
Adds Itamar Benedy, CEO and Co-Founder of Anzu, “The worldwide gaming audience is vast, hard to reach with traditional advertising media channels, and resentful of ads that interrupt their gameplay. Advertisers who want to target gamers need to be able to understand this audience with great precision in order to make informed decisions. The addition of Digiseg’s forward-looking audience targeting technology to Anzu’s best-in-class platform allows us to continue to set standards and give the industry what it needs.”
