Marketer’s Guide to Navigating COVID-19 | Edition 3

In our third edition of “The Marketer’s Guide to Navigating COVID-19,” we are leveraging our proprietary marketing analytics platform (MAP) to provide a view of market-level ecommerce revenue before and after COVID-related retail store closures. We are seeing variations across markets, underscoring the importance of geo-based optimizations and other creative tactics right now.

In our third edition of “The Marketer’s Guide to Navigating COVID-19,” we are diving into geo-based optimization opportunities for retailers.

While it may not feel like it, there are opportunities to drive revenue right now. Analyzing your data to identify these opportunities is the most important thing marketers can do. One recent example was an analysis we did to compare market-level ecommerce revenue before and after COVID-related store closures, leverage data from our marketing analytics platform (MAP). We identified variations across markets and are helping clients make geo-based optimizations.

Every retailer is different, but we hope these insights and examples inspire you to find creative ways to maximize your marketing investments in this new environment.
