The continued advancements in retail media present a new set of challenges for brands and retailers who must transition from traditional to digital media. So, how can your business stay ahead of this shift to drive performance and growth?
Driving growth in digital retail media requires understanding and managing your brand’s data to leverage upper funnel media. Perhaps the most recognizable and powerful tool in a merchant's toolbox is Amazon's Demand Side Platform, or DSP. This platform allows merchant's to programmatically buy ads to reach new and existing audiences, both on and off Amazon. Merchants who can successfully leverage the power of DSP can see a major impact throughout the funnel.
In today’s episode of The Digital Deep Dive, Aaron Conant sits down with Nich Weinheimer, General Manager of Strategy and Commerce at Skai, to discuss navigating the shift in retail media. Nich covers some of the top challenges brands and retailers face across the eCommerce continuum, the benefits of investing in DSP, and how retailers can scale their businesses using display media.
