This study, by Christine Moorman, Director of The CMO Survey and the T. Austin Finch, Sr. Professor of Business Administration, The Fuqua School of Business, Duke University, wanted to determine how much marketers were outsourcing. ďI asked top marketers to report how much they expected their companies to outsource marketing in the next 12 months.Ē
The findings were interesting.
This percentage has grown over time as shown in Figure 1. In fact the last measurement, taken in August 2011, grew by over 100% over the prior year!
Wow! In just 6 months, the percentage of companies saying they were outsourcing marketing grew from 1.8% to 9.3%. What will 2012 hold? Will it grow to 25% or more?
