21% of B2B marketers say proving ROI of Marketing spend is their biggest challenge

Let’s face it. Marketing today isn’t just about getting leads or traffic any more. It’s a complex process involving digital and traditional channels with multiple touchpoints. And because it involves tracking multiple variables over a long period, it's difficult to prove ROI.

We also bring results from a report regarding misinformation about elections and voting on social media, great examples of brands on Snapchat (which is growing) and statistics about interactive content (and a free course!)
