Discover how search amplifies other marketing channels

Do you recognize the full value of search — as an amplifier of other media channels, a brand-awareness tool and a conversion tool?

In August 2016, Microsoft and Catalyst commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate companies’ marketing mixes in the digital age and, in particular, the role of search in the digital media mix. Forrester conducted online surveys of 300 US-based marketing agencies and B2C advertisers, and compared this with Forrester’s Consumer Technographics data. The findings show customer adoption and perceptions of various channels that they use throughout their buyer journey.

The study found that as the top channel for customer engagement, search provides marketers with critical intent data, which traditional media cannot. By strategically integrating search with other channels, you can create a program that is more than the sum of its parts.
