Retail media and the differentiation of digital advertising channels
Between 2014 and 2021, Meta (formerly Facebook) and Alphabet (Google/YouTube) held a dominant position in the US digital ad spend, accounting for well over half of the market share. However, recent market figures from 2022 indicate a significant decline, with their combined share falling below 50 percent for the first time. This trend is expected to continue in a rapidly growing market that is projected to reach over 230 billion US dollars in sales for 2022. The emergence of new advertising channels, particularly retail media channels like Amazon and Walmart, has played a significant role in this shift.
As advertising channels become more fragmented, advertisers are faced with both challenges and opportunities. They must develop a deeper understanding of how different channels operate and what types of advertising strategies are effective in each. Additionally, the increasing abundance of screen stimuli has led to a heightened focus on perception, known as System 0. To accurately measure performance, advertisers must test their creations in a realistic media environment, taking into account the context and the entire ad experience from start to finish. This is where Ad2Cart comes into play, providing a platform for realistic testing and evaluation.
