The New York Times will no longer use 3rd-party data to target ads come 2021, and it is building out a proprietary first-party data platform.
Beginning in July, The Times will begin to offer clients 45 new proprietary first-party audience segments to target ads.
- Those segments are broken up into 6 categories: age (age ranges, generation), income (HHI, investable assets, etc.), business (level, industry, retirement, etc.), demo (gender, education, marital status, etc.) and interest (fashion, etc.)
- By the second half of the year, The Times plans to introduce at least 30 more interest segments.
