  • 2. Augustine Fou- 2 - Author’s Commentary “The following 3 charts show search volume, sales volume, and site traffic during and after ad campaigns. While we all know that customers may make purchases long after the ad spending was turned off, the direct and immediate impact of the ads (e.g. causing users to search for specific products) is very short-lived.” This begs the question, whether brands can invest the same ad dollars in something else that is longer lasting (hint: content creation, social, etc.).”
