The state of content commerce

Content commerce represents marketers’ newest approach to preserving audiences’ connection to publisher’s content while unlocking moments of shopping inspiration — and prompting purchases — for brands and advertisers.

There has been a sharp increase in consumer demand for convenience and speed to purchase when the impulse to buy strikes. For example, in a new survey of more than 70 brands and publishers, 60% of respondents said that they would use Instagram to purchase products if they offered a direct checkout option on their platform. Customers want the convenience of shopping without navigating away from the content they were consuming.
