When considering whether or not to weave search into a brand’s total campaign, there is one simple, inarguable reason why brands should use it: Search is where the audience can be found.

“Brands need search—and not just paid ads and higher organic rankings—to help them achieve their overall marketing goals,” said eMarketer. “They also need the search data that can give them unique insights both into their target audience’s interests, intents and perceptions and into their competition’s. And they need to connect all their search activities to their overall branding campaigns.”
