Total Retail | December 19, 2019 Commerce companies face unique AdTech challenges.

Total Retail | December 19,  2019 -  As retail and direct-to-consumer companies look to ignite their next wave of growth, executives at these organizations are having to chart a path forward amid rising customer acquisition costs. As they do, many of these companies are setting their sights on a new beacon of potential growth shining on the horizon: advertising revenue. The opportunity to monetize the large portion of their visitors who don’t convert into direct sales is massive.

All customer-facing brands that are forging direct relationships with consumers fall into the ever-expanding commerce category, from Walmart and Nordstrom to Uber and Instacart. If you’re a commerce exec who is (wisely) exploring a foray into the advertising business, you need to make sure you have sound strategies in place to address the following issues.
