Marketers spend a relatively large portion of their digital advertising budgets on a select group of massive publishers. Known as walled gardens, companies such as Google, Meta, Amazon, and others garner these investments due to advantages in targeting, performance, optimization, and myriad other benefits.
According to eMarketer, walled gardens are will account for more than 80% of all U.S. digital advertising spending this year.
Why are walled gardens a marketer’s best bet?
Skai’s CMO, Margo Kahnrose begins this new eMarketer Inside Intelligence video by defining walled gardens:
A walled garden is a platform that keeps its technology, information, and user data to itself. It’s a closed ecosystem where a ton of engagement happens—sometimes even commerce activity—but the records of all of that engagement and activity are kept within those walls.
On the consumer side, you are logged into these platforms, have a first-party authenticated relationship with the media, and have already opted-in to certain rules about what about your behavior can be traced or shared with marketers.
Kahnrose also explains why marketers invest so heavily in these closed ecosystems.

Within this short video, Kahnrose also explains why walled garden advertising is so effective for marketers and how third-party technologies can help make these platforms easier to manage and unlock maximum value—especially ones focusing on the omnichannel customer experience.
