What data do you require to provide advertising services? What data are you collecting on my customers?
When a customer performs a search, we reference the search term entered by the shopper in order to determine if we have a relevant ad to serve. If we have a relevant ad, for a product available at the shopper’s store level, we will display the ad at the top of the search results.
If the shopper clicks on an ad, we then check the completed transaction to determine if the shopper purchased the advertised product.
Are online advertising campaigns going to conflict / impact co-op advertising deals already in place?
Online ads are only displayed at the top of the organic search or category results. They will not be placed in any ad space designated for co-op advertisements.
Ads will only be displayed at the top of relevant search results or relevant category pages. All ads and targeted search terms will be subject to approval before going live. We also have the ability to pause or reject any ad, at any time, should there ever be an issue.
Grocers and advertisers will have real-time visibility into the performance of ads through the performance dashboard. This includes impression, click and conversion data and insight into the best performing ads, products and search terms. Mercatus will be monitoring this data and optimizing campaigns to maximize conversion revenue for both the grocer and the CPG.
