March 2021: Marketing Budgets Increase in 2021
With many companies still working remotely and live events slowly ramping up later in the year, most companies are increasing digital marketing budgets in 2021 to help drive sales.
And the biggest increases in spending are for digital ads, webcasts, brand marketing and content marketing, with more than 50 percent of respondents saying they are increasing these strategies this year.
But this year’s marketing spending is unlike pre-COVID spending. First, Outsell found that 54 percent of marketers are predicting that it won’t be until 2022 or 2023 when their marketing budgets get back to pre-COVID levels. And even when they do, there is a much higher focus on measuring ROI and justifying spend on a regular basis.
One way Treasury & Risk can help: We just rolled out three new high-impact ad units to improve your messages’ engagement with our audience. Our data shows these units get 3-to-6 times higher CTR than standard ROS ad banners.
And we have other suggestions for improving the ROI you are getting with webcasts, brand marketing and content marketing. Please email me at [email protected].
