Notes: Data is critical to current marketing and advertising efforts, say almost 6 in 10 marketers, advertisers, service providers, technologists and publishers surveyed by the Winterberry Group and the GlobalDMA across 17 markets, with almost 3 in 4 reporting confidence in the value of data-driven marketing and advertising (DDMA) and its prospects for future growth. Social media management and content was the channel with the largest spending growth and performance change in 2015, per respondents.
However, mobile apps, content, and SMS are anticipated to have the largest spending change this year. Looking at DDMA functions, digital campaign execution (web and mobile development, rich media/video, etc.) saw the largest reported spending change in 2015 and is slated to have the biggest spending change this year, narrowly ahead of predictive analytics/modeling and segmentation.
