Brand marketers across the globe have realised the importance of various social media and online marketing techniques. But very few are able to estimate how much to invest or what are the possible returns from a particular investment, or which marketing tactic must be given preference. Nearly 85% of marketers claimed to have learnt latest digital marketing techniques through on-job experience. Marketers are investing hardly 25% of their marketing budget on online marketing and the remaining 75% is being spent on offline marketing. An infographic ‘2014 State of Digital Marketing‘ by Webmarketing depicts possible marketing trends and challenges ahead of marketers in both B2B and B2C sectors in 2014.

A few interesting facts and figures are listed below.
