Just like other leaders in a company, marketers are in the growth business. But driving sustainable growth is far from easy. Consumers have plenty of choices, and platforms control experiences and restrict access to data, which means building direct relationships requires investment. Digital and other trends that were once new are now mainstream, and consumers are always active but increasingly disengaged with traditional advertising.
Despite these challenges, PwC has seen modern marketers thrive, with some increasing ROI by more than 10% and in some cases up to 20% each year. How do they do that?

Sustaining transformation requires investment, but it doesn’t come with a blank checkbook.
