Serving as a trusted retail marketing resource, the complimentary, downloadable report outlines best practices and provides key insights on several essential pieces of the Shopping campaign movement.

The PLA Playbook delivers insights on how to drive new growth with advanced strategies for Shopping and provides case studies to learn from other retailers’ strategies. This report features original articles on the following topics:

  • Appropriately bidding and evaluating mobile traffic
  • Supporting in-store performance through Local Inventory Ads
