Question 2: What is the difference between retail media and trade media? 

Retail media refers to all the advertising offers made by e-tailers and traditional retail stores. Retail media therefore includes not only traditional advertising but also the advertising use of transactional data. It is then a component of media trade.

Media trade has a much broader scope. It allows you to go much further in omnichannel by broadcasting on all marketing channels.

Question 3: What is the main advantage of media retailing?

The main advantage of media retailing lies in an audience planning logic based on the activation of large-scale consumer data from major retailers for granular and precise targeting.

Access to this rich and relevant data allows you to adapt messages according to the targets, but also to broadcast at the right time and in the right place. You can then rationalize your media investment by measuring the performance of your actions by following precise KPIs (e.g.: awareness uplift, cost per qualified visit, transformation rate, cost per acquisition, ROAS, etc.). 

Question 4: Is media trade a full funnel? 

Media trade can be activated on the full conversion funnel

From awareness (making your brand and products known), to consideration (attracting attention), to conversion (inciting action), until loyalty.

Question 5: Is media trade omnichannel or multichannel?

Media trade is customer-centric. It offers consumers a global and coherent experience across all customer relationship channels. It is therefore an omnichannel approach (as opposed to multichannel or cross-channel, which are brand-centric).
