Digital Indoor Advertising

Digital Indoor advertising is an advertising format from VK on media screens in the Perekrestok supermarket chain. Using the format, you can increase your image metrics and launch omnichannel performance campaigns.

The tool allows you to independently launch advertising on media screens in the Perekrestok supermarket chain. With its help, you can set up the display of videos at points of sale in more than 30 cities of Russia, motivate store visitors to buy and evaluate the return on investment in promotion.

The product allows you to significantly reduce the marketing funnel and motivate the consumer to buy right in the store, and the possibility of promotion directly from the myTarget dashboard helps to build omnichannel campaigns and evaluate their effectiveness, including the impact on real online and offline sales.

5. Specify the number of ad impressions.
When you start promotion in supermarkets, payment is made for impressions*, the campaign budget is calculated automatically depending on the number of impressions selected for the specified period in the specified number of stores.

To select the number of impressions, we recommend taking into account the following restrictions:

  • The minimum number of stores is 1 unit.
  • The maximum number of impressions in 1 store is 1008 impressions per day.
  • The minimum number of impressions to create a campaign is 1200
An example of calculating the number of impressions for a campaign establishment:
To create a campaign for the minimum period (2 days) and the minimum number of stores (1) with the maximum number of impressions per day, you must enter 2 016 impressions (2 * 1 * 1008) in the ad account

*Impression is the output of a video on 1 screen in 1 store.
The maximum available number of impressions for 1 unique video is 1 time per 10 minutes.
