    • Attribution can be complex and marketers need to work with DSPs that understand it enough to take a customized approach.
    • The pending demise of third-party cookies presents challenges but is ultimately not as impactful as it’s made out to be.
    • Dark funnel impact will likely increase with the rise of chatbots, but sophisticated marketers can still connect audience behaviors to brand awareness efforts.
