ChannelAdvisor Corporation (NYSE:ECOM), a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions that enable retailers and manufacturers to increase global sales, today announced the launch of its new Digital Marketing solution. ChannelAdvisor Digital Marketing integrates ChannelAdvisor’s industry-leading feed management and bid management capabilities, including paid search campaigns, Google Product Listing Ads and other advertising channels, from affiliate marketing to social media. The introduction of Google Shopping in 2012 changed the game for retailers and brands, requiring more sophisticated campaign management. As a result, ChannelAdvisor’s new, enhanced solution is a necessity for online retailers looking to properly manage cross-channel initiatives.
“Having worked with retailers and manufacturers for over a decade, we’ve seen the digital marketing space explode in complexity,” said ChannelAdvisor President and Chief Operating Officer David Spitz. “To stay ahead, retailers need precise and real-time linkage between their products, campaigns, tracking and optimisation across more channels than ever. ChannelAdvisor Digital Marketing brings all of these capabilities together on a single, integrated platform, giving our customers a strategic competitive advantage.”
ChannelAdvisor Digital Marketing is designed to maximise sales while minimising spend. It includes features unique to product-centric marketing to enable optimal management of campaigns, including Google Product Listing Ads, comparison shopping engines, Inventory-Driven Search, product-level reporting and more, such as:
- Integrated price, quantity and bidding to make it easier, more efficient and more effective to manage disparate advertising channels
- Cross-device conversion tracking to best manage mobile traffic and measure it against traffic from PCs and tablets
- Automation of complex, time-consuming tasks such as keyword generation, data transformation, seasonal bid adjustment and overall bid management
Actionable Retail Insights—ChannelAdvisor’s array of analytics and
reporting—to ensure qualified traffic to retailers’ websites through:
- Cross-channel reporting for correlations
- SKU-level reporting for granular-level performance
- Attribution and assist tracking
- Competition Watch for insights into competitors’ ads and positions
- The ability to easily insert products and brands into the conversation on social media sites such as Pinterest and Facebook
- Flexibility and control for retailers to manage campaigns internally or outsource to ChannelAdvisor’s team of Managed Services experts
“Before, we had one person managing our shopping feeds and mobile ads, another person managing our display ads and retargeting, and yet another managing our paid search campaigns. Having all these moving pieces made it incredibly difficult to compare performance on these channels, determine where to invest further or pull back, and sync quantity and promotions across advertising channels,” said Mobile Karma Vice President of E-Commerce Woody Anderson. “Now, using ChannelAdvisor Digital Marketing, this is all integrated under one umbrella, creating efficiencies and economies of scale, providing data to easily track clicks and assists, and enabling us to use that data to increase quality traffic and conversions.”
ChannelAdvisor Digital Marketing allows sellers to get their products front and centre on global, local or mobile search engine results pages through Google Product Listing Ads, paid search and comparison shopping engines. Digital Marketing employs Flex Feed technology, so advertisers can easily explore additional feed-based destinations such as retargeting providers and affiliate networks as well as benefit from SKU level performance reporting across those programs. Once traffic hits sellers’ websites, ChannelAdvisor can help improve the buyer experience and optimise the path to conversion. Finally, Digital Marketing inserts retailers’ products into the conversation on social media as consumers discover and discuss products via sites such as Pinterest and Facebook.
ChannelAdvisor Digital Marketing joins ChannelAdvisor Marketplaces, Webstores Amplifier and Rich Media to complete the ChannelAdvisor platform. Through this platform, ChannelAdvisor offers retailers and manufacturers leading cloud-based solutions to efficiently automate and manage the online selling process across multiple channels, including third-party marketplaces and digital marketing channels such as paid search and comparison shopping engines. Through a single inventory feed, ChannelAdvisor customers can manage their overall online selling process, from listing to order management, from one platform. By eliminating the tedious tasks of optimising online listings and analysing performance, ChannelAdvisor enables sellers to increase sales and successfully scale their e-commerce businesses.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
