Tech Took 29% of 2018 Marketing Budgets: Gartner
Where’s all the money coming from for these new tools? Gartner estimates that technology expanded its share of total marketing budgets to 29% in 2018, up from 22% in 2017. But don’t take this too seriously: the figure was 27% in the 2016 study. With a relatively small sample of “over 600” marketing leaders, the statistical significance of these shifts is doubtful. But the larger truth is clear: marketers spend a lot of money on tech.
