FullThrottle Technologies is a leading AdTech SaaS company with cookieless, patent-pending technology powering its products. It offers several solutions for brands, agencies, publishers, and media companies, providing first-party data collection in a fast-approaching future without third-party cookies. FullThrottle has the unique ability to take programmatic, cookie audiences and transform them into household audiences. FullThrottle is completely privacy-compliant, making it truly future-proof technology.
Higher education spends a lot of money on marketing and advertising. Yet, enrollments are at an all-time low and fewer people are taking the SAT and ACT, which means less targeting information for colleges and universities. On top of this, cookie deprecation will have an impact on higher education marketing. Retargeting with programmatic audiences will shift as Google sunsets support for third-party cookies and data privacy legislation becomes stricter.
The key to staying ahead of the curve?
First-party data and creating a dynamic, data-driven marketing plan. These are a MUST for any college or university looking to keep up with the competition. FullThrottle’s ShopperSuite is the cookieless technology to help higher education institutions gain higher ROI and ROAS.
ShopperSuite can help you identify key markets and determine who your audience is. It shows you which campaigns are working, and more importantly, which aren’t! Don’t waste your ad budget on meaningless efforts. Our Immersive Household advertising ensures you reach the entire household. It is equally important to market to the parents, as it is the students.
