A successful first-party data strategy incorporates data into every facet of the business — from advertising to affiliate to licensing.
At least that’s how Trusted Media Brands’ CEO Bonnie Kintzer is approaching the company’s first-party data strategy. So far the company's notable revenue growth is proving this to be a good move.
The company’s advertising revenues have been up 40% year over year, with particular growth in programmatic business since the beginning of TMB’s fiscal year July 1, Kintzer said. Meanwhile, its affiliate commerce business has seen 75% growth year over year, with January coming in at double its revenue from the same month the previous year, she added.
“We may have been a little bit late to the [affiliate] party, but [we’re] making up for lost time,” Kintzer said.
