Almost all major companies and platforms use their amount of first-party data to launch a Retail Media activity, which will allow brand partners to launch sponsored ads campaigns on the brand or platform on the site and not just provide and most relevant ads per customer.

Instacart example: retail media is a huge source of revenue that will help the delivery company run by Fiji Simo since July, to face competition from new players, and from Amazon, in the field of fast food shipping.

“Are you willing to deprive yourself of sales? »Argue with the main actors in BNPL.

Note: Klarna definitely started BNPL as her core business, but now more: a Super App. Now, consumers can visit the Klarna app to access news of their favorite brands in one place: new products, livestreams, events, discounts … BNPL is offered there, but not this is the main reason to visit the app. You can also imagine the power of Retail Media for Klarna and its associated brands …

“Gen Z drives a lot of energy around the metaverse and it’s important that brands are there”

One of the reasons for the test – because everyone is in the experimental stage right now? Your little ones have just spent two years on Metaverse.

And during an interview given to me earlier by Joseph Sartre (Interlace Ventures), he shared with me his vision of Web3: a unique opportunity to create next-generation membership systems. An example: the delivery of coffee for NFT owners, with: exclusively reserved for members, innumerable levels of access, possibility to resell the membership for the member, and so on. Web3 paves the way for loyalty programs to which new generations can be attentive. Thank you Joseph for this vision!
