Advertising Studio Live! Boost your holiday sales with online ads

Back to articles

The end of the year, from Black Friday through Christmas, is a key period for many retailers. These events are no longer separate, but part of one long shopping period, and one that is crucial for businesses. In fact, as much as 40% of yearly sales for small and mid-sized retailers take place within the last two months of the year.

Online ads play a significant role in making those sales happen. To help businesses make the most out of the holiday period, we were excited to host a unique event in Paris on Thursday, October 10th: Advertising Studio Live!

For the first time, we brought together representatives of each of our partner networks to advise attendees on increasing visibility at the end of the year. Our panel of experts from Facebook, Google, Twitter, Snapchat, and Pinterest covered end-of-year trends, available ad formats, best practices, and other keys to retail advertising success across networks.


Our expert presenters included:

  • Guillaume Cavaroc, Industry Manager – Retail @ Facebook
  • Maël Barthelemy, Tech Strategic Partnership Manager @ Google
  • Morgan Azogui, Head of Emerging Clients @ Snapchat
  • Gaëlle Pasteur, Head of Strategy & Operations @ Twitter
  • Gregory Blay-Desforges, Partner Manager Retail @ Pinterest
