What are Retail Media Advertising Platforms?
One of the biggest challenges that online retailers and brands face when selling their wares via online marketplaces (like Amazon and Walmart) is making their products stand out from the rest. Showing branded ads either as native ads on search engine results pages (SERPs) or as display ads directly on the online marketplace website allows online sellers to market to shoppers closer to the point of sale.
This is where retail media advertising platforms come in. These platforms act as self-service ad networks that brands and sellers can use to purchase advertising space. This enables brands and online retailers to buy ad space across various online marketplaces at scale.
Many platforms also offer ad campaign performance measurement tools. These help online sellers track their ad performance to see which ads are the most successful across the different channels they use. Users can track things like the number of clicks, impressions, CPC, CTR, and campaign attribution via these platforms.
Large online retailers, or online marketplaces, can also use retail media platforms to help place ads on their website and track ad performance.
