Digital marketing has shifted from an occasional perk to a new business standard as brands optimize content to drive conversions on the digital shelf. Yet with so much demand for innovative content and record-high consumption rates, how can you test and measure your content to ensure your efforts generate maximum ROI?
According to eCommerce-focused marketer Mike Black, the first step in content optimization is to assemble your briefs to target retail algorithms and advertise in the appropriate categories. However, keywords and competitors change dynamically and frequently, so you must leverage automation and other analytics tools to track incremental performance. Mike cites the digital shelf as a key performance driver but warns that data sets can become siloed, so by applying the data to various marketing channels like retail media, you can develop an integrated strategy for informed decision-making.
In the latest episode of The Digital Deep Dive, Aaron Conant hosts Mike Black, the CMO of Profitero, who talks about the convergence of media, commerce, and the digital shelf. Mike addresses the democratization of eCommerce and technology, how to leverage software tools for paid media, and how data-driven insights boost content performance.
