Let’s attempt to answer the above question by defining Commerce Media first.

Quoting Criteo, the term Commerce Media is defined as 

“A new approach to digital advertising that combines commerce data and intelligence to target consumers throughout their shopping journey and help marketers and media owners drive commerce outcomes (sales, revenue, leads)”

On a wider scale, Commerce Media is the collection and the use of relevant data from gauging consideration and purchase intent of your audience and using that information to drive commerce and relevance. Brands can create a personable and powerful platform to drive real ROI and reach a larger audience.
