Adoption of e-commerce media is growing rapidly as retailers are realizing the media value of their e-commerce sites. According to research from BIA/Kelsey Group, 97 percent of consumers are researching products and future purchases online. Today’s brand marketers are looking for opportunities to put their messages in front of shoppers while they’re researching or actively shopping online, and e-commerce media is creating new, deep-funnel marketing opportunities.
One of the largest retailers of footwear, accessories and related apparel on the Internet, Shoebuy.com has recently announced a partnership with HookLogic, an e-commerce media services provider. The strategic alliance will enable Shoebuy to offer premium brand and product placements within its online store, creating new and innovative merchandizing opportunities for its current brand partners to reach active shoppers at the point of sale.
