Google Helps Merchants with Free Shopping Feed Listings, Plus a Panel!

In Episode 85, Tyler and Jon discuss Google making product listings available for free to merchants. Jon goes on to explain how Google wants to make more items noticeable to the public as a response to the current climate of COVID-19. Tyler makes an important point in not slashing one's paid ad budget due to the new organic listings possibly being hidden by paid adds still. He goes on to point out the opportunity available to invest in both organic and paid shopping feeds, highlighting the importance of a well organized and optimized feed. Tyler continues to mention the great opportunity this brings for Google as well as other third party marketplaces like Shopify and Pinterest as Amazon alternatives.

Then listeners are treated to an exclusive look at the ScaleThat Summit panel that Tyler moderated with Ivonne Kinser, the Senior Digital Marketing Director for Avocados from Mexico, Danica Carey, the Marketing Manager at Seirus Innovation, as well as Jonathan Steffens, the eCommerce Manager at American Outdoor Brands.

The summit guests go on to explain their strategic pivots amidst the pandemic with many of them taking this opportunity as a way to educate both consumers and themselves in this unprecedented era.

The panelists touch on a variety of topics, including consumer education, attribution, and job interview tips for listeners that may be on the market.

Jon wraps up the podcast with Words of Twisdom from @Command_app. Jon and Tyler affirm the message of caring for consumer needs and having a level of anticipation akin to the methods the Summit guests have taken in order to solidify the consumer-brand relationship in a sincere fashion.
