How Smart Marketers are Adapting to iOS 14 (Part 1)

By Smart Marketer | January 25, 2020

Apple’s iOS 14 changes everything for marketers. In part 1 of this 2-part segment of #WeOutHere, our hosts Molly Pittman and John Grimshaw talk about how iOS 14 is transforming Facebook advertising forever. They discuss the Big Tech cold war driving this change, why 30% or more of your audience will be affected, and (most importantly) some of the key strategies you’ll need to survive this upheaval.

You Will Learn:

    • Why you shouldn’t hit the panic button
    • What you can do to be prepared (now and in the future)
    • Why the iOS 14 update is a win-win for Apple
    • Is Facebook still valuable for marketers?
