If money is on your mind, you’re definitely not alone. When asked about their number-one challenge in 2022, 30% of B2B marketers surveyed byHubspot said “measuring the ROI of marketing activities.”
Interestingly, that didn’t make the top list of challenges for marketers looking ahead to 2023, but “ROI” snuck its way into a number of thepredicted top marketing trends of the new year. For example, short-form video, thought leadership and website SEO should continue to see high return on investment for marketing teams that invest in them. And there was a big emphasis on using data to inform decisions; that’s about spending wisely too, of course.
