How to Use Retail Media in Your OmniCommerce Strategy

CRC Thought Leader Webinar Featuring The Mars Agency


With the ability to shop anywhere, anytime, any way, the ability to reach your customers has become increasingly fragmented. Brands must appear in the right place, at the right time with the right message. The proliferation of eCommerce and retail media have fueled a change in retail that allows you to better reach your targets. However, there is an opportunity for brands to get the shopping experience across the entire commerce-verse right — or get it wrong.

Join CRC on Tuesday, February 7 at 12:00 pm ET as we kick off our 2023 Thought Leader Webinar Series featuring The Mars Agency.

How to Use Retail Media in Your OmniCommerce Strategy will provide real brand examples how to:

  • Use retail media to create a connected experience
  • Prepare for network contract negotiations
  • Measure your success
