NDR provide TV4 advertisers with ethical audience data

TV4 chooses Nordic Data Resources to provide geographical lifestyle data to target ads without using cookies or online IDs. To help advertisers - who are challenged by Google’s phase-out of third-party cookies for tracking user behaviour - TV4 offers their advertisers a targeting model that is stripped of individual data.

The Google phase-out of third-party cookies is now! Alternatives are available to Nordic marketers who generally want to raise the bar on transparency and rely on ethically collected data to research and understand their audience. 


Sweden's number 1 choice by advertisers is TV4. By offering advertisers data enriched with geo- and sociodemographic insights, TV4 supports its advertisers with user-friendly and respectful self-service tools to reach their target audiences.


To Dagens Media, TV4's sales director Rikard Sjöberg says:


"By connecting first-party data down to postcode level together with NDR's data, we get a much higher hit rate, maintained reach and higher efficiency in the campaigns. NDR is very skilled and has the data that we see that many people are looking for."


Geodemographic Segmentation


The cooperation with NDR also means that TV4, with the help of geodemographic segmentation, increases the accuracy of advertisements at the local level.


Through this partnership, TV4 will enrich its existing viewer data with NDR’s geo-based lifestyle data, providing advertisers with more precise and respectful targeting capabilities and a better understanding of their target audiences.


Privacy Powers Programmatic


The transition away from cookies is challenging for the digital marketing industry in general - but it also opens the door to new and more respectful dialogue between advertisers and consumers.


Göran Eklöf, VP Partnerships & Country Manager SE at NDR, welcomes TV4 and its advertisers as important frontrunners of cookieless ad performance:


"We are happy to be involved in creating new stable foundations for TV advertising as the digital transformation takes place for real. Welcoming TV4, one of the leading publishers in the Nordics, on this important journey provides both new insights about consumers and new solutions for audience activation to the many advertisers in the TV4 universe."

TV4's sales director Rikard Sjöberg sums up the mission of next-gen ad targeting:


"For us, it is very much about automating and simplifying the purchase process and lowering the thresholds. Everything that both our partners and customers are looking for."
