eCommerce Is Everyone’s Job Now — Getting Your Entire Company Prepared for Digital Transformation
SVP Strategy & Insight,
According to The 2020 eCommerce Organizational Report from Profitero and Kantar, just 17% of brand leaders believe their companies are ahead of the curve when it comes to being prepared for eCommerce.

Using Consumer Purchasing Signals to Maximize Advertising ROI
VP Global Strategic Consulting, Kenshoo
We’ve all been there… browsing through Amazon, clicking on a product ad, reading the reviews, and quickly changing our mind about purchasing. Or maybe we’ve clicked on a product only to realize it is out of stock and left the page disappointed. For brands advertising on sites like Amazon or Walmart.com, this behavior is the very reason that dealing with product and advertising optimization in two separate silos is no longer an option. Join Kenshoo and Mayborn as they share how to successfully use holistic product health and consumer demand signals — such as sales, traffic, conversion, and out of stock rates — to optimize retailer advertising campaigns and accelerate online sales growth for products. Learn how you can apply this “retailer intelligent” advertising approach in your business.
