Kicking off May of 2018, the Retail category dominated by relative frequency of impressions across display, mobile, social, and video digital advertising channels. Big ad spenders like WalMart, Target, Wish.com, and Amazon led the charge targeting top sites like Facebook and YouTube.
Almost 65% of digital ad spend for the Retail category in May was invested in social advertising. Chances are, if you are a Facebook user, you came across an ad for WalMart, Target, or Wish.com.
The Financial Services category followed, spending 54% of total monthly budget on desktop display and only 18% on social –which illustrates an entirely unique strategy and target community from the Retail category.
While Retail garnered 19.8 B relative impressions in May 2018, Financial Services wasn’t far behind with 17.7 B.

Face it, the ad industry is flooded with sub-par data. We all know it.
We’ll come right out and say it:
We’re making the case that you should buy ad intelligence software. We sell ad intelligence software, so we’re not going to pretend we’re impartial. Or trick you into reading an “unbiased” argument for ad intelligence software.
We’re really, really biased towards ad intelligence software. So biased that we’ve spent 8+ years to build the best ad intelligence software available today. We know ad intelligence software like ours can supercharge your paid advertising.
That’s why we don’t need tricks or gimmicks or subterfuge to make the case.
All we have are facts.
And the fact is, ad intelligence software will make you a whole lot of money.
According to Crayon’s 2018 State of Market Intelligence Report, 79% of respondents say gathering competitive intelligence in a timely manner is critical for success.
Advertisers rely on digital ad intelligence solutions to serve up the timely data they need. That said, learning and implementing a new solution into daily operations takes time. And oftentimes, teams resist new technologies in favor of traditional (or more comfortable) methods.

So, if you’re in the market for an ad intelligence solution, how do you know which one is right for you? And because not all ad solutions are created the same, how do you know you’re selecting the right one?
In the case of Pathmatics, there are three reasons brands buy it.

Face it: We don’t usually like change.
Even driven pros don't usually jump at the chance to learn new software or integrate it into their work. After all, most people are way too busy with what's already on their plate. They're not actively seeking out new tools and tactics to improve their work. They're just trying to stay afloat.
