The lesson

In the 49th lesson of our Crash Course series, we dive into how retail data is becoming a crucial piece in a marketers’ toolkit and why it represents the future of digital advertising. The surge in ecommerce has seen major retailers gather a treasure trove of valuable and opt-in shopper data. 

In this lesson you will learn:

  • What are some examples of retail data
  • How advertisers can leverage retail data for products sold in retail stores as well as for products/services not available in stores
  • How advertisers can use retail data to reach customers in different life stages
