1) An advertiser with an App, a Website, or an e-commerce business can always divert those drive-to-store budgets to campaigns that bring traffic to the digital properties instead. Examples:

  • Re-engaging users by promoting the app with a cool discount or free delivery for orders this week, seems to be working great.
  • Creating a retargeting campaign to recover old clients.

2) Any advertiser can use this time to invest in branding campaigns that put their brand in front of existing or potential target customers in context. Examples:

  • Make a video about new entertainment or exercise options at home, that enhances the brand while helping viewers.
  • Create a game with your client base that showcases the product, and is shared in social media to expand the scope.

3) Of course, any campaign can continue to take advantage of all advanced features in our platform, such as Location Targeting & Audiences.
