The ‘full funnel performance’ approach focuses on building awareness and customer acquisition through video-based platforms such as Meta, TikTok and Google. The report is based on data from more than 40 e-commerce brands.

Brands that ran awareness or traffic campaigns alongside performance campaigns saw up to a 31% annual increase in return on advertising investment (ROAS). Conversely, brands that rely solely on performance campaigns experienced a 32% annual decline in ROAS.
