Clean Rooms 101 – What They Are and Why Marketers Need to Care

Vault with a series of binary code numbers going inside.

The marketing industry's ability to effectively target audiences, engage consumers and measure advertising success is increasingly under pressure. Disappearing third-party cookies, the deprecation of mobile location signals and strengthening privacy legislation create the imperative for brands to find new and innovative ways to leverage their first-party data for customer acquisition.

Enter data clean rooms: the emerging privacy-compliant environments for first-party data collaboration and activation between advertisers, agencies, publishers and media platforms.

These clean rooms hold great marketing promise and the potential for exciting outcomes. However, marketers need to be aware not only of the opportunities these environments offer—especially in a Canadian context—but also of the many complexities and considerations involved.

 

In this webinar, we explore:

  • What is a clean room, and where does it fit in the marketing toolkit?
  • Key use cases and applications
  • The importance of a made-in-Canada solution
  • Questions to ask before you start and best practices

What’s Your Next Big Donor Opportunity?

Environics-Analytics-Logo-Framed-With_illustrated-data-clouds

Millennials have been the focus of conversation for some time now. They were the new up-and-coming generation that everyone wanted to reach and engage with. And as part of this large generation—the oldest of the Millennials sometimes referred to as Geriatric Millennials—are entering their prime earning years, what’s next?

 

In this webinar, we examine:

  • Who the groups of Millennials are today, what are their demographic, psychographic and financial makeups, and how not all Millennials are the same
  • The generation's overall giving tendencies
  • How to continue to engage with, acquire and build relationships with Millennials to help support the pipeline for future success

 

We have partnered with 1832 Communications to provide insights and expertise specific to the not-for-profit sector.

The Changing Financial State of Canadians

Hands gesturing in front of a laptop screen containing visual charts. There is a calculator and a pen beside the laptop. The Environics Analytics logo is at the top-left corner of the image.

 

Recent data show that the COVID-19 impact on household wealth has been dramatic. Net worth across the country has increased by 1 trillion dollars, approximately half of which comes from real estate gains. Another key trend has been the significant increase in deposits. But the impacts on Canadians’ financial status have not been the same across the country, with significant variances by region.

 

In this webinar, we examine:

  • Financial changes across various geographic and demographic dimensions, as well as by asset/debt type, to give a more fulsome understanding of the financial impact on Canadian households
  • Evolving investment behaviour, spending power, debt levels and net worth of consumers
  • The opportunities to leverage and connect new data sources, including big data, to wealth data for more targeted marketing and improved customer experiences

Accelerating the Shift to Electric Vehicles

Cropped image of an electric vehicle at a charging station

What is the impact on Canada?

By 2035, the fossil fuel automobile engine will be a thing of the past in Canada. Big changes are coming. OEM’s, energy providers, government, bricks & mortar businesses, residential buildings and tourist destinations, among many others, are planning now for a massive economic and social impact from this trend. A fundamental piece of the puzzle is understanding the response from Canadians. The speed of adoption will vary among different populations from coast to coast and across socio-economic groups.

Learn about insights gained from working closely with our clients on the electric vehicle rollout across Canada, including various stages of adoption by key segments. By understanding each of these audiences and what's important to them the private and public sectors can make decisions relating to marketing strategy, communications, sales forecasting, investments in infrastructure, as well as considerations for the issuance of grants and other incentives.

Webinar Learning Objectives

  • A brief overview of the electric vehicle industry, including projected growth and size of the opportunity
  • Who is the current electric vehicle consumer and how does geography factor in?
  • How might communication change across key targets? What motivates people to buy electric vehicles?
  • Where is adoption likely to go next?
  • What are the implications on where energy demand will increase faster than others? How does it impact the hydro grid? What businesses should be prepared for?
