Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, B2B marketers have seen a shift towards digital when it comes to content consumption – and their own sales model.

Among the B2B marketing leaders surveyed, 7 in 10 (69%) expect to hike their digital advertising budgets in the coming year.

Likewise, roughly two-thirds of respondents also expect their budgets for email marketing (67%), mobile marketing (67%), paid search (66%) and SEO (66%) to increase.

And, with B2B marketers recognizing the benefits of having a social media presence, 64% anticipate their social marketing budget to increase in 2021.

Although more than half (56%) of respondents believe their events marketing budgets will increase next year, the uncertainty surrounding the industry is possibly a factor that has led the remaining respondents to believe their events budgets will either decrease (24%) or remain the same (20%).
