    Become a Digital Shelf Leader

    You might be asking, what is the digital shelf?

    When a shopper engages with your brand or retail store through a digital touch point, such as an online store or shopping app, they’re interacting with the digital shelf.

    Shoppers engage with brands and retailers — and discover, research, and buy new products — all on the digital shelf.

    These channels include:

    • Retail Sites
    • Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) Sites
    • Third-Party (3P) Marketplaces
    • Shopping Apps
    • Social Commerce

    The DSI offers you the latest actionable insights and industry thought leadership to help guide and uplevel your strategy to become a digital shelf leader.
