Data is ingrained in our daily routines. It was gathered from many sources. It is collected when you conduct a web search on a desktop or mobile device and purchase online or in a store. It’s also gathered when you send personal information to us by email, chat, or old-fashioned pen and paper.
Executives seek new data and analytics skills in a moment of extraordinary uncertainty to enable continuing changes in decision-making to address the crisis, become more robust, and, eventually, prepare for the recovery. Today’s business development depends on using third-party data sources for more significant insights. From Covid-19-related data and private company-related information to consumer behaviour measurement, indexed foot traffic data, and workforce population data, this data can encompass practically anything.
Marketers utilize the data to figure out how to reach out to potential customers in the most effective way possible, including developing messaging that would resonate with them and which channels they use the most.
Marketers require data to improve their efforts and produce effective campaigns. Most marketers, publishers, and agencies cannot finish customer and prospect insight-controlled initiatives due to a lack of first-party data. Third-party data can assist marketers like you in achieving your marketing goals. It’s critical to understand what kind of third-party data sources you should get and whether the data’s quality is dependable and current.
When people are contacted, they expect it to be personalized. Without the correct customer data set, how can you customize a message?
Your digital marketing efforts are likely to fail if you don’t have the correct insight, and you won’t be able to create a relationship with customers.
Data can assist you in identifying and segmenting your target audiences based on their interests. These types of personalized messaging perform better and attract more responses. Let’s look at how data can assist.
Before we get into detail on third-party data, let’s define first-party and second-party data:
Data you obtain and collect yourself is referred to as first-party data. There’s a lot to keep track of, from trade shows to online forms to email newsletter subscriptions. This indicates that you are the data’s creator and owner. The most valuable and high-quality information is obtained from third parties. It would, without a doubt, be the case. It was taken away from you.
Second-Party Data is a term that refers to information that has been obtained from a third party.
Another person’s or organization’s first-party data is second-party data. You received this data directly from the data owner, so you aren’t concerned about its origins. Other than first-party data, second-party data is the next best source of information.
Third-party data sources have a far greater scope than other sorts of information. It’s data that’s been purchased in quantity. Typically, you’ll buy from a data aggregator or provider. The provider does not have a direct relationship with the consumer to gather personal information. Third-party data suppliers are commonplace all around the world. You can use third-party data sources to reach out to new and updated target audiences and gain a deeper understanding of your customers, their interests, their channels, etc.
Often known as a data provider or a DMP, a data management platform collects data. DMPs create third-party audience segments that companies can purchase for marketing efforts, such as target advertisements, over-the-top (OTT) and data enrichment.
This information could contain things like:
- First and Last Name
- Phone Number
- Postal Address
- Email Address
- Purchase history
- Web browsing activity
- Social Media Handles
You can use third-party data to fill in the gaps in current data files or create entirely new audiences. It might assist you in creating new segments for better audience targeting. It will enable your company to look beyond basic audience information.
Casey shared a few examples of how their customers were able to implement Covid-19-related advancements, including:
In one scenario, AWS client Chan Zuckerberg BIOHUB was able to merge Covid-19 data from the AWS Data lake with third-party data sources to predict Covid-19 epidemiology in their predictive models. Similarly, utilizing free data from X-mode accessed through AWS Data Exchange, the University of Texas at Austin has built an app that allows users to avoid Covid-19 hotspots and be alerted about their exposure to Covid-19.
In another scenario, a worldwide package goods company uses data from AWS Data Exchange and Covid-19 cases to build their prediction models surrounding staff and clients.
People in every sector and country have turned to data to stay informed, share information, and respond confidently as Covid-19 continues to creep into our lives.
Using data from AWS Data Exchange providers, the AWS data lake team launched a public data lake on Covid -19 in April 2020. The AWS Covid-19 data lake allows experiments to quickly execute data analysis without wasting time gathering and wrangling data from many sources. Trend analysis, keyword searches, Q&A analysis, machine learning models, and custom analysis may all be performed using AWS or Qubole to fulfil the demands of the organizations.
AWS Data Exchange makes it simple to subscribe to and provide data. It is a single location where non-sensitive data can be exchanged.
