The rise of commerce media as a new model for digital advertising is making brands rethink how to invest their ad spend. As the digital advertising ecosystem is now entering a new era, it can be difficult to differentiate the numerous commerce media platforms popping up on a daily basis.This transformative shift is raising two questions : 1.What is commerce media?  and 2. How is Locala’s platform different from other commerce media solutions? 

Simply put, commerce media can be defined as an expanded version of retail media, closing the loop between media impressions and commerce transactions to improve targeting, provide new audience insights, and deliver more relevant and valuable experiences for consumers.

With 10 years of experience as a drive-to-store leader, Locala’s drive to store capabilities are now evolving into a closed-loop commerce media solution, which is an expected natural progression as we continue to grow.
