According to the report, Sofa Club leads brand visibility as it sees the biggest growth in online visibility, with a 79% increase.

Brands including Swoon, Sofabed Barn, Swyft, and Love Your Home have also made it into the top five, with these increases in visibility highlighting a successful strategy and a growth in demand for sofas and home comforts. 

Despite being crowned the most prominent brand, DFS sees a drop in organic visibility, with a 27% decrease Year on Year.

Brett Janes, managing director at Salience Search Marketing, said: “This report allowed us to uncover the latest trends and growing brands within the industry. 

Regarding organic visibility, there has been a 2% drop in overall organic growth within the industry, demonstrating that brands need to revisit their strategy to strive in a competitive industry. This is a crucial time for brands to continue amplifying their online presence to gain prominence in the year ahead.

“Sofa Club and Swoon ranked best with the biggest online visibility growth, however, to ensure longevity and prominence in a growing industry, Furniture Village and DFS, which have faced a drop in online visibility, will need to revisit strategies to accommodate user needs better.

“Overall, building a strong following and online presence across multiple channels becomes vital in driving sales and capitalising on the expanding market demand.”
