Let's talk about numbers

Globally, companies have increased their investment in social media, according to the study presented by 4C Insights and, as reflected by AdWeek, after analyzing the advertising expenses of 900 brands, it was found that they spent more than 130 million of dollars to advertise in the main social networks: Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat. Pinterest and LinkedIn. These figures also represent an increase in investment compared to the previous year, with growth of 61.5%.

In the past 2016, Spanish companies also increased their marketing investment by almost 2,000 million euros, reaching to invest in this sector around 30,000 €, a 6.4% more than the previous year, according to the figures of the Association Of Marketing of Spain (AMES).

Advertising, communication and promotional products and services account for almost 63% of the total budget allocated by companies to their marketing strategies. Despite the take-off of digital marketing, offline marketing continues to represent the highest advertising spending of companies as it remains essential for customers to know the product before entering to e-commerce.

A strategy within everyone's reach
