When market dynamics change rapidly, it can be challenging to understand how your customers’ needs are evolving. Google Trends helps you to see the things people are—or aren’t—searching for, almost in real time. You can use these insights to adjust your marketing strategy and ensure you’re meeting the needs of your customers.
Here are a few ways you can use Google Trends to navigate this uncertain time:
