Ken Morrison's insight:

Zero Moment of Truth:
https://www.thinkwithgoogle.com/collections/zero-moment-truth.html

 

Key Quote: "As Google notes, micro-moments are moments of high intent and engagement many of which, happen in spare moments, such as waiting in line, commuting, or generally when not preoccupied with something else. The journey then continues later either on mobile or through an entirely different channel such as a laptop or tablet.  You can design for these new opportunities. And make no mistake, they are opportunities for engagement, not distractions."
