About The 2021 RSW/US New Year Outlook Report
The 2021 RSW/US New Year Outlook survey was completed by senior level Marketers and Marketing Agency executives during December, 2020.
The purpose of the survey was to glean insights relative to marketer and agency perspective as they each headed into 2021.
Topics explored included “biggest challenges facing marketing agencies” as seen through the eyes of marketers
Also probed were topics related to spending and investment expectations, the growth of specialty agencies, the growth of in-house agencies, and the ever increasing importance of data and analytics.
Our hope is the key findings and implications from this study are of value as you kick your marketing and sales planning into gear for 2021.
