New challenges ahead for attribution with the rise of intelligent tracking prevention

Hey, I’m Simon Poulton. I am the vice president of Digital Intelligence at WPromote, and today I’m gonna talk about some of my thoughts about 2020 and the road ahead.

Where do we go from here? It’s a very hard decision to make for a lot of marketers.
