However, just because inventory is up, this does not mean buyers are up. We will explore more of this in the upcoming sections. 


What Trends Are We Noticing?


Brands are now having to do more with a lot less. What this means now is that we are seeing more focus on optimizing different elements across campaigns to gain more insight. The benefit here, as we have mentioned before – there are a lot more eyeballs or volume online.


What Can Brands Do?


Look at your own website’s search results. What are the things that you did not expect your audience or customers to be searching for? Are there any products that you can elevate to the homepage of your website that’s been gaining interest? Or could you create a banner on-site to help promote that?


Consider how you can change how you deliver content to promote your products or services. Explore what is possible if you added some more technology through the customer’s journey that coul help improve the user’s experience.


Responses from Product and Service Businesses


We have seen that businesses that are Business to Business (B2B) are going to struggle mainly due to the uncertainty across industries. Furthermore, for B2B businesses, we are seeing a decrease in traffic as well as the quality leads can vary greatly.
