October 12, 2021

Covid-19 may have accelerated the adoption and expansion of digital advertising, but it also severely impacted the resources at marketers’ disposal for impactful ad strategies.

Gartner research found that while marketers’ digital ad spend increased by 72% in 2021, marketing budgets and buyer engagement decreased by 6%. When coupled with 2020’s 11% decrease, it’s clear that B2B marketers have a lot more targeting and customization to do and a lot less funding to do it.
