Martech Spend Is Down Except at 56% of Companies: Nielsen Report

If your musical reference point is closer to the Andrews Sisters, you may be nostalgic for the days when A.C. Nielsen’s radio and TV ratings were the Next Big Thing. Nielsen is still around, of course, and their 2023 Annual Marketing Report contains interesting data on channel spend and effectiveness. The headline that caught my eye was “Investment in martech is declining”, which is a bit misleading: planned spend is down at 24% of companies but up at 56%.
