Marketers increase investment in Digital Advertising

20 January 2020

The IPA Bellwether Q4 2019 Report, has revealed a 4% overall increase in marketing budgets. This is the first increase since the first quarter of the year. There’s anticipation of more growth to come as well.

Digital advertising

Investment in internet advertising has again been cited as the primary driver of overall growth in marketing spend, with budgets increasing by 7.9% in Q4 2019 alone. After a year of pretty flat results for digital advertising spend there’s finally some good news. There now seems to be real growth in the digital industry with digital advertising being the core focus of this.

Anticipation for growth

The Bellwether Report also indicates an expected upturn in spend in 2020. It’s encouraging to see an optimistic start to the new decade. The report also goes on to predict that growth will continue every year to 2023.
