26 Essential Digital Marketing Statistics to Make Your Marketing Pop in 2017

My new favorite joke about the New Year:

“I want to start a gym called Resolutions. The first two weeks it will have fitness trainers, workout equipment, everything. Then on January 15th, we turn the whole thing into a bar.”

I love that joke because it hints at an unfortunate reality: Only 64% of people keep their resolution past one month. At six months, less than half of us stay resolved.

Many marketers are starting out the New Year with resolutions. We want to know our audiences better, take control of our data, use content more effectively, and more. Statistically, only 46% of us have a chance at beating the status quo.

It takes more than willpower to make a resolution stick. You need a well-informed, strategic plan.

To help you reach your goals in 2017, use these statistics to guide you.

Stay Resolved in 2017

These statistics can help you see a clear way forward into the New Year. The biggest takeaway may be that traditional digital marketing’s effectiveness is waning: without retargeting, display and banner ads just don’t compel like they used to. Mobile, email, influencer and content marketing are all vital parts of a successful marketing strategy, each promising a better ROI than traditional PPC alone.
