CPG brands currently invest about a fifth of their marketing budgets in retail media networks and 64% expect to increase their retail media spend in the coming year. But as their spending grows, so does their expectation for a return on these investments.
These figures come from an exclusive Wakefield Research report commissioned by LiveRamp. “Specificity & Scale: The Future of Retail Media Networks Means Providing Both” is based on a survey of 500 U.S. CPG executives at brands with an average annual advertising spend of $100 million or more.
The research report’s key findings include:
- Balancing targeting and scale: About half of CPGs want a more targeted audience, but they don’t want specificity to come at the cost of audience size and scale.
- Looking for retail media connections: 97% of CPG executives would invest more in smaller retail media networks if they were interoperable with other networks.
- Data privacy is table stakes: 43% of CPG decision makers say that data privacy assurance is a must-have when selecting a retail media network.
