Instacart owns 71% of all online grocery delivery orders in the US, according to data from research firm Second Measure.
With more than 300 major retailers like Albertsons, ALDI, Costco, and CVS now leveraging Instacart’s fulfillment capabilities, CPG brands are recognizing the huge potential of this channel to elevate their sales.
As online grocery shopping continues to be a preferred buying channel, the race is on to meet shoppers where they want to transact.
But comparatively, Instacart is such a new promotional channel, that there is not yet the same level of time-honored, well-documented best practices, that we see in more established marketplaces like Amazon.
Instacart for CMOs offers the first and most comprehensive look into how other CPG brands are operating and maximising their Instacart sales channel. Dial in your marketing strategy on Instacart before your competitors wake up to the opportunity.
