- But spending is down on Google, which accounts for 20% of brands’ marketing spend this year, compared with 27% last year.
- Meanwhile, Amazon makes gains: Brands are spending 7.5% of their marketing budgets with Amazon this year, compared with 1.6% last year.
- However, brands’ confidence in how Amazon contributes to their marketing success has fallen since last year.
