How Google Outsmarted Facebook and What it Means for Marketers

So, how did Facebook end up taking all the heat for this privacy stuff, while Google sat back quietly and dodged the bullets? 

On today’s episode, co-hosts Ralph Burns and Kasim Aslam talk about the absolute brilliance of Google. For one thing, they don’t have a “face of the company,” so while everyone is out here hating Mark Zuckerberg and turning him into a meme, Google (whoever “Google” is) is more than happy to let him be the villain. Google watched Facebook take the heat for all the iOS 14 privacy updates madness. Then, when everyone was so fatigued that they didn’t even care anymore, Google rolled out Performance Max, the craziest, most invasive, most heavily-targeted tool in the history of the world. It’s literally going to change everything.

Listen in for tips on staying on top of what’s new with Google Performance Max and what it means for your business.  


  • Why the 30-day attribution window/click to purchase paradigm is obsolete
  • What multi-touchpoint engagement means in practical terms 
  • The biggest mistake marketers are making right now with Performance Max
