Whether you're interested in the personalisation of content and advertisements, predicting future patterns and trends or just want to gain more insight on your customers; 1st party data provides one-to-one value between your brand and customers...but do you really know how to use this data to your advantage?

There is increased regulation and insecurity around how 3rd party data is collected online - 1st party data is yours, you own it. Whilst there are benefits to 2nd and 3rd party data, to complement your strategy - it's important to ensure you're making the most of your own data.



Intro to 1st Party Data and How to Use it

James Green & Chris Watson-Shaw - Forward3D

The growing importance of 1st party data and the business benefits of multiple data sources.


1st Party Data in Search

Rosie Horsfall - Forward3D

What we'll cover

When designing and developing a new website there are factors to consider to ensure that it's the most effective portal for your business. This may involve the content management system you choose to run your site, the way in which hierarchy is structured to make sure Google can crawl and index it or how to ensure the customer flows to the point of conversion, what ever that may be. 

Within the workshop we aim to provide you with the nuts and bolts of the entire process, with focus on setup, content structure and content management. This workshop is for you if you are building your website currently, or if it's just launched.


Structure of the evening

We will kick off with a 30 minute overview of SEO, led by Forward3D staff, covering the foundation of making your website search engine ready.
To follow, we will share pizza and drinks and break out into targeted groups to focus on your own venture website. You will be provided with a mini Forward3D team from across departments who will work with you individually on areas you feel support is needed. 


We look forward to seeing you at Leman Street!
