New trends and changing consumer behaviours during the past year have rapidly shifted the UK’s retail landscape. These changes are reflected in search behaviours, with an increase in non-brand interaction, growth in mobile clicks, and more interactions with shopping ads.

In our recent retail ad effectiveness study, we found that users who are exposed to a brand’s ad in both search and native advertising environments are more likely to visit that brand’s website and convert. In fact, advertisers using both search and native were found to have a 3.5x higher conversion rate versus only search ad exposure!  Looking at the full consumer journey through multi-touch attribution, we see the full value of different search tactics. Ensure you have coverage and are using broader tactics to capture new and changing behaviours.
