Kicking off May of 2018, the Retail category dominated by relative frequency of impressions across display, mobile, social, and video digital advertising channels. Big ad spenders like WalMart, Target, Wish.com, and Amazon led the charge targeting top sites like Facebook and YouTube.

Almost 65% of digital ad spend for the Retail category in May was invested in social advertising. Chances are, if you are a Facebook user, you came across an ad for WalMart, Target, or Wish.com.

The Financial Services category followed, spending 54% of total monthly budget on desktop display and only 18% on social –which illustrates an entirely unique strategy and target community from the Retail category.

While Retail garnered 19.8 B relative impressions in May 2018, Financial Services wasn’t far behind with 17.7 B.
