The Brown Goods Sector Report by digital marketing agency Greenlight assessed which brands, retailers and review sites were the most visible in both natural search and paid media  results and had the greatest share of consideration when UK consumers searched on Google UK for Audio & Accessories, Cameras & Camcorders, PCs & Laptops, Phones & Accessories and TVs & DVD Players. The report also highlighted which brands interacted well on social media networks.

According to the report, Amazon UK achieved a 30% share of visibility in paid media and also displayed the most visible unique ad creative, in the Audio & Accessories subsector, advertising low prices on the iPod Nano.
