InMarket Releases Its Annual Breakthrough Moments List of Best-Performing Campaigns

Michelob ULTRA, Wendy's, Welch's, Kraft Heinz & NotCo are among the top-performing, real-time digital campaigns of the past year

AUSTIN, Texas, March 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- InMarket, a leader in real-time marketing and measurement, today released its top-performing Breakthrough Moments winners of the past year. InMarket's annual Breakthrough Moments Report recognizes the brands that most effectively combined timing, relevance and context throughout the customer journey to create unforgettable brand experiences that drove exceptional viewability and engagement rates, reaching as high as 9.55% which is 15.9x above industry benchmark.*

According to eMarketer, mobile device usage has reached new heights, with consumers spending an average of 230 minutes per day—over 3 hours—on their phones and tablets. More than half of US consumers' time spent on digital devices is on mobile, more than any other device.

As consumers look to mobile devices as their primary digital device of choice, it's essential for brands to create unique, real-time experiences that engage users and offer value to drive engagement and results over time. InMarket's proprietary Moments solution leverages intent, visitation and commerce data and combines it with real-time technology, allowing brands to build awareness and consideration while consumers are in-market for specific products, ultimately driving purchases in-store.

"The Breakthrough Moments winners showcase the power of contextual experiences and their ability to help brands connect with consumers when and where it matters most—while they are shopping," said Todd Morris, CEO of InMarket. "By taking digital marketing innovation to the next level, our Breakthrough Moments winners drove industry-leading engagement rates and exceptional return-on-advertising-spend. We're grateful for our clients placing their trust in us to help keep them at the forefront of digital marketing innovation."
