The latest CMO Survey results
The 31st edition of The CMO Survey explores top trends in the world of marketing.
The evolving marketing landscape
The latest edition of The CMO Survey features responses from 316 senior marketing executives on the current landscape and trends marketing leaders and stakeholders are observing. The survey dives into a decline in the use of channel partners, a rise in digital marketing spend, and an alignment between marketing and sales leaders.
Influencer usage in marketing strategy is expected to grow by 109% in three years to reach 12.2% of marketing budgets. The survey also highlights a disintermediation trend, reporting a large decline in companies using channel partners over the past decade. The shift towards going directly to market has an apparent effect on the nature of partner relationships with a dramatic increase in expected partner price per unit. In this ever-changing landscape, senior marketing leaders are finding it challenging to demonstrate the impact of marketing actions on financial outcomes (61.2%) and to communicate the role of the brand in business decisions (45.3%). Many senior marketing leaders are filling the gaps by remaining closely aligned with sales leaders on goals, strategies, and data.
