Nielsen Annual Marketing Report: Era of Alignment
Even with the challenges of the past 2 years, many brands are still trying to rebalance their marketing efforts in 2020 after massive pullbacks, particularly when it comes to radio and television.

Data remains a marketer’s guiding light. But that data–which should be rooted in an effective first data strategy–should be plugged into scalable marketing solutions that brands of all sizes can use to approach all decisions with precision to arrive at reliable, growth-driving outcomes.
The importance of agility has never been greater. Marketing professionals continue to say that agility is the key attribute of a successful business.
