Retailers and brands face complicated times.
Non-essential spending since the onset of Covid-19 is declining across different categories. Companies such as Nissan have seen a 43 percent drop in sales, and Coca-Cola recently watched a 25 percent slump in volume as bars, restaurants and other soda-friendly venues closed for the quarantine. Even DTC brands, poised to take advantage of a surge in online shopping, have struggled to compensate for their now-shuttered wholesale distribution channels.
With new developments in the weeks and months ahead bound to influence consumer sentiment further, the entire retail ecosystem faces unprecedented uncertainty.
Knowing that our retail partners — and our brand partners — are impacted every day by these shifts in purchase behaviors, Digiday Media has collected a range of special offers and tools. As we did with our Publisher Partner Coalition, we’ve brought together a group of solutions providers in a Retail Partner Coalition to offer excellent terms, no-fee access to products and services and more, helping all retailers and brands in need.
AdRoll: As a growth-marketing platform for D2C brands, AdRoll offers free platform access for all plans for 90 days so brands can track their campaigns and allocate resources accordingly. The company also continues to churn out content from blog posts to webinars and eBooks to help D2C brands understand the evolving landscape and prepare for what’s the next. Their Growth Guerrilla Collective community also enables retail-facing leaders to share their insights and connect.

Brainbase: A technology company that helps brands, including retailers, manage any licensing, partnership or sponsorship agreement from end-to-end in a single platform. Brainbase brings two special offers to the Coalition. Retailers who generate less than $100,000 per year in brand partnership volume — i.e., gross receipts from their licensing or partnerships business they manage — qualify for the platform’s Startup pricing plan, which is free forever. Furthermore, Brainbase is offering a 10-percent annual discount to all retailers who elect to be Enterprise customers. Click through to Brainbase’s website to book a demo and take advantage of these offerings.
