Amazon pioneered eCommerce and retail media, leading other retailers to follow suit. Yet, these platforms are becoming commoditized and competitive, so brands need to develop sound strategies to remain relevant. How can you optimize eCommerce and retail media to maximize profitability?
John Ghiorso warns against over-advertising on your website because it can diminish the customer experience by reducing site performance. Instead, he recommends establishing a unified retail media strategy that encompasses multiple channels. This entails collaborating with cross-functional teams and analyzing key KPIs to diversify your retail media budget, thereby increasing cumulative ROI.
