Woodman’s Selects InMobi Commerce as Video-Based Product Discovery and Retail Media Solution

Nestlé Among Brands to Adopt Video Advertising Experiences on Woodman’s Site

SAN MATEO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–InMobi Commerce, one of most modern and innovative advertising technology platforms for retailers and eCommerce companies, today announced a partnership with Woodman’s, an employee-owned American supermarket chain with stores throughout Wisconsin and northern Illinois. InMobi Commerce will launch the program with a suite of video-based product discovery and monetization solutions. These solutions will help Woodman’s engage and inspire shoppers, allowing them to discover and consider products in their shopping journey while maximizing reach for participating brands.

While other verticals are building momentum in retail media, grocery is still seen as the key vertical for future growth, according to eMarketer. In this partnership, InMobi will provide the grocer with video ad experiences to help enrich and shorten the consumer path to purchase, as well as AI-powered campaign automation and optimization tools.

These video-led solutions have helped Woodman’s establish a Retail Media arm that is able to reach their loyal audiences across their ecommerce site (powered by Point Pickup), allowing them to attract conversations from national brands. This has helped Woodman’s position themselves as a differentiated retail media player that can offer full funnel marketing solutions to its marketing partners in a single window.

This focus on video has made Woodman’s site a premium destination for their brand advertising partners, which now include both local brands and large national CPGs. Nestlé was one of the first to jump at the opportunity to utilize the video experiences now available on Woodman’s site, starting with sponsored product video.

“Video ad experiences have become key to attracting consumers’ attention in a world where brands are competing for it daily,” says Tyler Weigman, National Shopper Marketing Lead at Nestlé. “We are excited to partner with InMobi to bring our products to life through innovative video experiences on Woodman’s site.”
