The 2017 RSW/US New Year Outlook Survey Report
Report topics include “troubling trends,” spending expectations, changes around in-house agencies, and the increasing use of project work to “sample” agencies.
The 2016 election also provided fodder for the survey.
In addition, the explosive growth of Marketing Technology is recognized, and several questions explore the transformative effects on our industry.
Ideally, the key findings and implications from this report are of value as you kick your marketing and sales planning into gear for 2017.
