In lieu of our Agency New Business Tools survey, which we’ve released for the past 5+ years, we decided to focus instead on the exploding MarTech space, and are excited to release our RSW/US 2019 Marketing Technology Survey Report.
Our President, Mark Sneider, attended last year’s MarTech West conference in San Jose and was impressed with the energy, new ideas, and new platforms that permeated the conference.
Amazing that around 5-7 years ago there were 100 MarTech platforms, and today there are over 7,000!
With so much changing so quickly in the MarTech space we felt it ideal to focus our efforts there. We asked Marketers and Agencies about their use of MarTech platforms, their attitudes towards MarTech platforms, and, how savvy each felt the other is in the space, among other topics.
We hope you can apply our findings from the RSW/US 2019 Marketing Technology Survey Report to your own new business development efforts.
This survey report is intended to inform marketers and agencies about a variety of issues related to the exploding Marketing Technology space.
This survey was conducted among RSW/US’ database of 10,000 marketing services agencies and RSW/AgencySearch’s database of 80,000 marketers for responses.
The survey was released in August 2019.
Issues related to the usage of MarTech tools, perception of marketers’ and agencies’ savviness in this space, and expectations of future spending in MarTech are among the topics explored.
