Whether a pandemic or a looming recession, brands will always face unpredictable external forces that impact consumer behavior. As experts continue to define our current economic situation, we as marketers can always look to past downturns to help formulate educated strategies that support brand-building regardless of the unknowns.

We may have avoided a recession, but economic uncertainty is still at the forefront of many consumer's minds. Marketers understand that shoppers are currently facing tough decisions about how to spend their money. Back-to-school season is upon us, grocery costs are rising, and inflation speculation runs rampant, all influencing purchasing decisions.

Consumers are using digital shopping lists to plan their grocery shopping trips now more than ever. In fact, 58% of Americans are comfortable using digital tools to assist their grocery shopping, and more than 49% use a list-building app on their mobile phone to plan or shop for groceries. Digital lists are not going anywhere. Now is time to engage them in your advertising mix, and here’s why:
Alcoholic beverages, while popular throughout the year, are among the most seasonal items that grocery shoppers add to their lists. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at the consumption rate for different types of alcohol and brands during the holiday season. We’ll also determine whether historical trends can continue during the holiday season of 2022.
We’ve all been inundated with the speculation surrounding the looming recession. But, is the economic doom-and-gloom a self-fulfilling prophecy, an unavoidable fact, or merely hype? Regardless of where the economy moves, the uncertainty is palpable. And during unstable times, we feel the shifts in priorities for both customers and brands as both groups navigate this economic ambiguity.

Your retailers will scrutinize your product velocity, and helping your brand maximize its success by moving products from shelf to carts will be a top priority as your item debuts.
Retailer own brands continue to grow and become stronger brands in their own right, and technology in many facets plays a key role plugging in that charge.

With summer vacation mere weeks away, millions of American schoolchildren are eagerly looking forward to months away from the classroom. On the other hand, for CPGs and media agencies, planning for this year’s back-to-school shopping season is very much top of mind.

When it comes to unveiling new products, there are several challenges that marketers face as they look to drum up both consumer awareness and buy-in from grocers and additional distributors. It's a tough market
In the final few months of 2021, shoppers were using their grocery lists to plan for the year ahead, prepare for the holidays, and even remind themselves to vote. While one might expect items on lists to remain consistent year-over-year, this was hardly the case when comparing Q4 2020 to the same period in 2021.
Over the last few years, Shopping List Marketing has taken the CPG advertising world by storm. Advertisers looking for innovative mobile tactics are finding that the ability to land their promoted products on digital grocery lists can help achieve several goals for their brands.
Over the course of 2019 and 2020, Hydrant's electrolyte drink mix had only been available to consumers online. As the product was introduced to stores in 2021, Hydrant was looking to build awareness about its expanded availability.
A new tool simplifies grocery shopping and planning for consumers; multiplies revenue for brands and retailersIn a perfect world, ads are both useful to the consumer and help sell an advertiser’s product. AdAdapted’s Add-It® allows consumers to add products they like directly to their digital grocery list; making grocery shopping easier and providing a sophisticated 1:1 measurement of purchase intent for CPGs.
CPG advertisers that want to bridge the measurement gap between their online ad strategies and consumers’ offline shopping activities need to look no further than digital grocery lists.
If you’re working in CPG or Grocery as a brand marketer, digital advertiser, or agency team member then you know that keeping up with the latest news and trends isn’t easy. Today, the CPG landscape moves at a rapid pace — with new brands popping up every day, retailers experimenting with different ways to shop, and the digital landscape evolving at lightning speed. We all need to figure out how to hang on!
CPGs would love a crystal ball that shows what products shoppers will buy before they actually buy them. Now they have one: Digital grocery lists.
Time spent on mobile officially overtook TV in 2019, making it critical for CPGs to reach and engage consumers on their favorite device. Some brands have figured it out, while others, despite plenty of dollars exhausted are wondering what they could be doing differently.
Add-to-List (ATL) has quickly become a leading metric CPG brands use to measure ad campaign success. While the ATL metric itself is a powerful indication of purchase intent, Add-to-List campaign analytics also bring unique insights into specific consumer preferences and can show brands how to challenge and win against the overall category.
Many CPG digital advertising pros are searching and reaching for new ways to engage their target consumers and, when it comes to mobile advertising in the CPG space, the array of options to invest in are endless. How do you separate the intelligent options from the others? And how do you know what will work best for your brand or client? A good place to start is to make sure you’re using a platform that collects information about how your consumers grocery shop and gets smarter every time someone engages.
A new study, by Asurion, states that Americans check their phones once every 12 minutes – or 80 times a day! Let’s be honest, this means that humans are truly attached to their mobile devices at all times (cringe). But, good news for advertisers, this also means that consumers are now sending off thousands of data points, or “clues”, as to what they’re thinking, doing, planning for, etc. at all times.
It’s holiday planning time! In a conventional year, CPG brands would look to tried-and-true messaging and in-store tactics to catch consumers’ eyes. With conventional expectations turned upside down, however, advertisers are now facing uncertainty over how shopping habits and patterns will change and how to adjust their strategy accordingly.
At face value, add-to-list advertising seems simple to most advertising professionals. You find a consumer, show them a product, and get them to add the promoted item to their mobile shopping list or online cart. Despite the obvious utility of this type of advertising, many advertisers still don’t leverage or even underutilize add-to-list. For some, this is a result of dogmatic adherence to traditional methods, and for others, it’s a lack of education on the benefits of add-to-list.
What are the benefits of each, and how should you use them? Is there such a thing as too much data? For many CPG marketers, it can be hard to choose from the plethora of options available, and even harder to figure out how to use the data once it is in their hands. Ultimately, the goal is always to develop a strategy that feeds itself; any data collected should inform future marketing spend, improve targeting, and make advertising efforts more effective.
We all know the saying… Use it or lose it! It’s that time again for mobile marketers; the end of the year is quickly approaching, but not all of your budget has been spent yet. If it goes unused, you may be left with less next year!

In the first few months of 2020, many observers of the CPG marketing space speculated that grocery shopping would be changed forever. Many changes to consumer behavior appear to have some level of permanence, particularly the increased consumer usage of mobile to assist with grocery shopping.
With the increase in reliance on mobile and ever-changing mobile consumer behavior, advertisers are always looking for new ways to reach consumers. Now more than ever, shoppers plan their grocery trips ahead of time, working towards greater shopping efficiency and less time spent in-store.

Do you know how your brand will perform this back-to-school season? With hybrid classes in session, parents have changed the frequency they shop for kids’ lunch and snack items. Brand loyalty is also up in the air following a school year in which parents’ and kids’ habits were disrupted. As a result, marketers face uncertain outcomes heading into one of the busiest shopping seasons of the year.
As 2021 wears on, consumers are beginning to return to some pre-pandemic habits. One of the most obvious places that this manifests itself is at the grocery store. A comparison of grocery list data from Q3 2020 to Q3 2021 reveals the fastest growing and declining categories year-over-year and points to the activities consumers are engaging in as a part of their daily lives.
For most people, the holidays are the happiest time of the year. For many mobile marketers, though, the scramble to exhaust budgets can be extremely stressful; if left unspent, they may be left with less in 2022!
