Econsultancy recently launched its inaugural State of Digital Marketing in Australia survey, in association with Marketing Magazine, as part of an effort to benchmark a variety of elements within the region.
We’re asking all marketers in the region to participate while the data collection is still live – as an incentive to complete the survey, those who participate will receive a free copy of the complete report (valued at $400).
However, ahead of the closing date later this month, I figured it would be useful to pick out a handful of interesting pieces of data from our Australia and New Zealand: Internet Statistics Compendium...
