Good Food is Just a Swipe Away
E-Commerce has expanded rapidly in the last three years to offer more than just consumer packaged goods. Today, it is the preferred method for many Canadians who also shop for groceries and fresh produce, and this trend of how Canadians shop for fridge and pantry items continues to grow.
This change in how consumers shop has forced many grocers to adopt e-commerce programs that are readily available at the fingertips of their customers, and it has also forced the hand of many consumer-packaged goods and food brands to shift into a mobile first approach when looking to reach shoppers at home and in the aisles.
For retailers, and the brands they stock, this means taking decisive actions and strategic investments in mobile ad-tech that will help position them to stay profitable in a competitive market. Steps like shifting to a more personalized approach on the devices their consumers are using the most will help make shopping easier for many consumers. On mobile, retailers and brands can offer turnkey solutions through interactive location, and demographic based advertisements which accurately target consumers at the most decisive step in the customer journey.
This type of mobile advertising can help create and own branded shopping experiences in real-time, while consumers are doing research, reading reviews, or intending to purchase. At the same time, this type of advertising can target consumers based on locations they visit, and even guide the intended target towards an action and conversion while standing in a retail store.
