    Type of Agency: Digital Advertising


    Everyone in the marketing industry is well aware of the current landscape. Both iOS 14.5 and the deprecation of third-party cookies have made a significant impact on the way digital marketing is done. Being a marketing agency with a digital advertising focus, Barham Marketing, knows the importance of first-party data both for themselves and their clients. They knew the faster their clients started actively collecting first-party data, the better their future ad performance would be — high converting digital marketing ads is what every client wants.

    But the advertising agency never imagined what it would do for their business beyond having access to the first-party data RAEK collects from website visitors. 

    “I 100% believe RAEK gives us an advantage over other marketing agencies.”

    – Mitch Barham

    Paid ads are suffering right now because of the push for privacy and the resulting changes in the digital marketing world. When new clients reach out, their first comment is often about how weak their paid ad performance is.”


    Every marketing agency should be talking to their clients about the importance of building first-party data, but Barham Marketing found few other agencies are. At the end of the day, clients want high converting digital marketing ads, and using first-party data achieves that. 

    “RAEK has allowed us to deliver high converting digital marketing ads as well as grow our clients’ email audiences with people who are interested in their products.”

    RAEK grows email lists by identifying website visitors and collecting first-party data above and beyond what forms and popups collect. 

    For many of Barham Marketing’s clients, email marketing generates a large chunk of their overall revenue, making additional email addresses extremely valuable

    “When clients see the additional emails RAEK collects, upselling them into email marketing services is easy. On the low end, this generates us an additional $1000 per month when the client takes the upsell.”

    – Barham Marketing
