Nielsen Annual Marketing Report: Era of Alignment

Future-focused strategies for brand building and customer acquisition

Despite the difficulty of the past two years, brands continue to re-balance their marketing efforts after widespread pullbacks in 2020, especially with respect to traditional mass reach channels like TV and radio.

As they rebalance, agility remains critical. Consumer behavior isn’t just in flux—it has changed.

Data remains a marketer’s guiding light. But that data–which should be increasingly rooted in an effective first-party 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.

Agility has never been more paramount. We continue to hear from marketers that an adaptive mindset is the most important attribute to have in business today.
