    The brand had been utilizing a retail media software platform from a competing provider, but their ad spend was not yielding satisfactory results. The underperformance was attributed to a focus on branded campaigns that had a negative impact on organic sales. The previous retail media software was described as a “black box,” as the brand team lacked visibility into how their ad spend was allocated and struggled to identify the true drivers of performance. This lack of transparency and insights hindered their ability to make informed decisions and improve their retail media strategy over time. The team was unable to provide valuable input or make data-driven optimizations to enhance their overall approach.

    • Boosting bids and budgets for keywords with higher iROAS
    • Maintaining SOV on priority keywords
