Why modern marketplace marketing matters

What we can do for you and your customers

Both common marketplaces (Amazon, bol.com) and lesser-known niche marketplaces (ManoMano) have the world to offer your business and avoiding them can even cause considerable damage. However, going beyond simply adding your product and incorporating various modern marketing practices instead can make digital marketplaces the most efficient channels around. To all brand managers, online marketers and brand strategists: marketplaces should always be part of your brand strategy.

Digital marketplaces: here to stay

Some things to keep in mind

Digital marketplaces have become pillars of online shopping. Consumers rely on them for product research, comparing prices, and buying the products they need or want. Ensuring they work for your business means making for brand consistency and truly understanding their inner workings. We’re confident that their power will only keep on growing, seeing the rise of new marketplaces (Leenbakker, Mediamarkt and Decathlon) and the increasing focus on marketplace media and advertising opportunities.
