NEW YORK—Nov. 7, 2017—Criteo S.A. (NASDAQ: CRTO), the commerce marketing technology company, today shared the findings of its Global Commerce Review for Q3 of 2017. The analysis explores shoppers’ winding path to purchase across numerous devices, browsers and apps. A primary finding of the research reveals retailers have a greater impact on mobile devices when an engaging app and a strong mobile web presence are available.
“Today’s shoppers expect that brands and retailers will deliver a personalized shopping experience at the precise moment an interaction is relevant,” said Jonathan Opdyke, Chief Strategy Officer, Criteo. “The findings of our Global Commerce Review reaffirm the need for retailers to adopt omnichannel strategies. The research also strengthens our commitment to growing Criteo’s Commerce Marketing Ecosystem so brands and retailers can apply the massive amounts of data collected at each phase of the shopper journey—on all screens and in stores—to engage shoppers wherever and whenever it’s most impactful.”
Shoppers are constantly on-the-move, both physically and mentally—with short attention spans when online. The mobile-first shopper is dictating the digital marketing strategies brands and retailers are executing across all channels.
Retailers looking to compete with industry giants can design a seamless in-app experience to remove barriers to purchase.
Daily and hourly sales trends underscore the importance of retailers’ ability to execute campaigns on all screens, around the clock, based on their core shoppers’ behavioral patterns.
Understanding a shopper across all of their devices can unlock where they might be going based on where their journey began.
Combining cross-device data to better understand and target shopper intent allows marketers to capture higher-value shoppers. This is most apparent in the high tech/computing and health/beauty verticals.
Online and offline sales should not be evaluated in a silo. Rather, offline sales boost shopper knowledge and in turn, online results.
The Global Commerce Review analyzed billions of annual transactions and more than 5,200 retail businesses globally, all Criteo clients.
