Chart of the week: Where will the marketing money be spent in 2018?

Creating content is the top goal for marketing pros around the world. According to figures compiled by communications and marketing agency Cognito, 61 per cent of the 165 marketing leaders they interviewed for a survey named creating content as the area where more of their marketing budget will be invested in 2018.

This makes sense, as in the previous report only 18 per cent of respondents were happy with the content they could market.

Investor relations (71 per cent) and public affairs (69 per cent) featured in the two top positions of areas where investment will remain the same. The top loser according to the survey will be traditional advertising, with 40 per cent of marketing leaders wanting to invest less.

These developments could have negative implications for traditional media outlets, as the volume of content published or disseminated by company marketers could more strongly compete with traditional publishing content. Diverting dollars from traditional advertising could also negatively affect heritage media ad revenue.
