Why brands can’t afford to ignore Shopify audience data

Shopify offers many benefits for small and medium-sized enterprises looking to build successful ad campaigns, thanks to its global reach and comprehensive range of integrations and APIs. Currently, it ranks fourth across the globe, holding approximately 10% of the ecommerce market, just behind Squarespace, Woo Themes, and WooCommerce.

Why you should leverage Shopify data for your ad campaigns

Shopify is a huge name in ecommerce. The business itself increased its total revenue by 22% to $1.4bn in Q3 2022, and is seeing a three-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 52%. This increase in growth is largely fuelled by its global multi-million network of merchants, processing an average of 152.6m orders per month. But why is Shopify so popular? And how can your business take advantage of what it has to offer when it comes to building your ad campaigns?

Is header bidding the driving force to creating a fairer ad ecosystem?

The cookie landscape is set to look very different next year – like it not, ready or ill prepared, change is coming.

First-party data allows for a more transparent ecosystem.

GDPR five years on: Industry leaders share their comments

It’s been five years since the GDPR – the General Data Protection Regulation – was implemented by the European Parliament. Designed to enhance the rights of individual citizens in our increasingly digital world, they have changed the landscape for the use of personal data. A lot has happened since 2018, so where are we with it after five years? We asked our industry leaders for their take on the GDPR.

Targeted advertising: how effective are online ads and what is the future of it

Targeted advertising was almost revolutionary. There is a certain impressive, although slightly dystopian play in monitoring online searches to track patterns and create algorithms to persuade people to manoeuvre towards a product or service. They can often come across as creepy too – as it can predict your next wanted purchase and offers it to you before you weigh up whether you need it.

MarTech Interview with Piero Pavone, CEO at Preciso

“I have more or less 20 years of experience in the industry, from online marketing and email marketing to Google AdWords, and then display advertising. Preciso is the result of several years’ hard work testing the first DSPs in the market, such as AppNexus and other tools available in the industry.”


We did, and this follows on from integrations with other ecommerce platforms, including Magento and BigCommerce. What this offers is a real-time bidding system that small and medium-sized retailers can use to deliver targeted display campaigns. Traditionally this has been difficult for small vendors that lack the in-house technology teams and large budgets to make this viable. Now they can take advantage of this advertising opportunity.

IPA Bellwether Q2 2023: Industry reaction

A record rise in sales promotions this quarter and an increase in direct marketing was interesting to see, but not unsurprising. These channels are traceable, and there will be a big drive to track and scrutinise all brand marketing efforts. The cost-of-living crisis has been rumbling on for over a year and now it’s really starting to bite. The latest interest rates hike affecting mortgages means even more people across the country are feeling the effects.

Predictions Series 2022: AiThority Interview with Anoop Ramachandran, Chief Technology Officer at Preciso

Basically we came from an advertiser environment, where we were managing multiple direct clients and were very, very close to advertisers. And when we started our DSP, what we realised is that these platforms were actually built for publishers, and their objective is to make us spend money with those publishers, not necessarily to provide the best inventory for the advertiser. That frustrated us a lot.


Smart Bid technology only buys impressions that deliver results. It uses data from all touch points across the customer journey, and combines them with machine learning to predict customer behaviours. It then calculates the optimal value of placements in real-time bidding marketplaces in order to optimise creative dynamically as it is served. But the defining factor of smart bid technology is the ability to bid for an impression based on multiple metrics instantaneously.
