Key Takeaways from Q2 2021

Here are some of the key digital marketing trends from Q2 2021's advertising data.

Advertisers continue to increase spending across Search & Social. We tracked acceleration in year-over-year spending for Paid Search (+60%) and Paid Social (+41%) channels, reflecting strong growth over a quarter hit hard by the pandemic last year.
Continued ecommerce growth. Retail Media (+55%) was already gaining momentum at this point last year due to big increases in online shopping, so while spending growth was strong and buoyed by Prime Day in June, it wasn’t as strong as it was in Q1.
Prices are up. Spending grew faster than impressions of clicks in each of the major digital advertising channels in our analysis.
