Advertisers are already excited about the feature. "We’ve been waiting a long time to be able to retarget using the real-time data that Sam’s Club has. This allows us to automate targeting, personalize messaging and create sophisticated media workflows that maximize the efficiency of our campaigns," said Mic Zavarella, Vice President of Marketing at PepsiCo.
This solution uses leading technology to make it easier for brands to feel comfortable investing in the platform, including automated audience building, onboarding and targeting. It brings scale, uniqueness and safe data clean room technology for all members and brands. With this new integration, Sam’s Club MAP is able to use The Trade Desk’s award-winning KOA Optimization technology to leverage AI and machine learning to optimize results in flight. Integrating with LiveRamp’s industry-leading data permissioning and access controls ensure safe and secure collaboration with MAP's supplier brands.
MAP retargeting automatically connects ads to membership data and member behavior, delivering tangible results, including incremental ROAS (return on ad spend), all 3rd party verified by IRI. Advertisers are able to track those results, including iROAS, right up to the point of sale, by using MAP’s reporting feature.
Sam’s Club MAP offers advertisers real-time retargeting for a variety of scenarios, including:
- A member has browsed a specific item on samsclub.com, or placed an item in their cart, but did not complete the purchase.
- A member visited a specific landing page, brand page or shelf page on samsclub.com, but did not make a purchase.
- A member placed an order online to be picked up in club but still plans to shop the club while they’re there – like many members do. MAP’s real-time retargeting allows advertisers with complementary products to deliver relevant ads between order placement and club check out effectively allowing advertisers to "Win the Second Cart".
"Retargeting is a tried and true tactic in the ecommerce and digital media world for Nestle Purina. We’re excited to see the power of omnichannel data come to retargeting that can drive both performance and brand awareness at scale," said Tony DiMattia, Director and Head of Shopper Marketing at Nestle Purina.
By eliminating irrelevant retargeting, Sam’s Club MAP improves the experience of members as they browse the open web. It also allows advertisers to use their spend more efficiently by not targeting members who are no longer in the market for their products. With these campaigns, advertisers are able to leverage data from omnichannel conversions, including those in-club and online, delivering greater incremental sales and improving the member experiences.
