CMO Survey: Marketers Predict More Online Data Use, Less From Third Parties

Marketing leaders are obtaining less customer data from third parties, but are using more online data about customer behavior and expect that trend to continue, a new survey finds.

Marketers also expect their investments in mobile marketing to double in the next three years.

These are among the latest findings from The CMO Survey. Conducted biannually since August 2008, and sponsored by the American Marketing Association, Deloitte and Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, it is the longest-running survey dedicated to understanding the field of marketing. The latest edition, conducted from July 17 to Aug. 7, received responses from 324 top marketing executives.
