Emburse, the global leader in spend optimization, released new information today about corporate online advertising spend in May 2023. The data reveals that despite macroeconomic concerns, companies are on track to spend more on search and social advertising in 2023 than in 2022. As companies seek ways to be more efficient with their budgets, they are shifting which platforms they prioritize with their ad dollars, but have not slowed ad spending overall.
According to the data released in an infographic today, the top three vendors by share of advertising spend, in order, are Google, Meta, and LinkedIn. Spending on Twitter declined 54% from May 2022 to May 2023, while companies are putting more money toward Gen Z-oriented social media platforms. ByteDance, which owns Tiktok, saw a 55% increase, and Snap, which owns Snapchat, a 41% increase from May 2022 to May 2023.
Companies invested 6% more in digital advertising in the first five months of 2023 than in the same period in 2022. Emburse also reported increased investment in newer business applications like chat-based AI tools. For example, the amount spent on OpenAI increased 3,266% from May 2022 to May 2023. Although many people expected companies to reduce spend overall this year, instead the company has seen an effort to better align business values with their budgets.
“Online advertising is an essential business function, even as companies look to establish lasting efficiency with their budgets and better manage spending practices,” said Emburse’s Chief Experience Officer Johann Wrede. “Many of our customers entered 2023 ready to make changes with a shifting economy, and found that concentrating their ad dollars on platforms that are giving them high value with little tumult is the way to make a longer-term impact on their bottom line.”
More than 18,000 companies trust Emburse for its corporate card and spend management solution, Emburse Spend, representing over $80 billion in spending transactions a year. Emburse tracks corporate financial trends, such as the SpendSmart Travel Trends report, which in Q1 2023 revealed that the number of domestic and international flights, hotels, and car rentals increased year-over-year. Investments also increased across all measurements, with the amount spent on flights increasing by 85% domestically and 178% internationally.
Emburse will continue to track the shift in corporate expenses as the year goes on. To view the full infographic and learn more about the data, visit emburse.com/learn/digital-ad-spending.

InMarket, a leader in 360-degree marketing intelligence and real-time advertising, today released their new study, Getting Smart About Ad Waste, in collaboration with the CMO Council. The study revealed that brands using InMarket's advanced attribution technology, including real-time inflight optimization, can achieve up to an 11x reduction in media waste compared to brands that don't. The highest performers in the study drove positive incremental results for 94% of their media spends.
Improving the economics of advertising and driving better outcomes against key KPIs are persistent challenges for CMOs. By focusing on always-on attribution and real-time inflight optimization, CMOs can extend the performance of their campaigns and drive dramatic increases in Return-On-Ad-Spend (ROAS).
The report highlights a major national Quick Serve Restaurant (QSR) brand that uses LCI (Lift Conversion Index) always-on attribution and real-time inflight optimization to monitor what exactly is driving their restaurant visits and sales. InMarkets' LCI attribution platform demonstrated that this specific chain was able to optimize nearly all impressions served—93% and 7% waste. The study compares this result to another major QSR brand that did not use the LCI's advanced capabilities resulting in a wasted 72% of all impressions served.
Additional highlights from the study on always-on attribution and real-time, in-flight optimization include:
InMarket found that LCI customers not leveraging always-on, real-time optimization have the opportunity to optimize 75% or more of their media spend: InMarket saw positive results in 94% (6% inefficiency) of the media for their highest-performing brands, while seeing an opportunity for their lower-performing brands not leveraging advanced attribution to optimize 75% of their current media impressions.
With increasing campaign spending, the opportunity cost of wasted media is rising significantly: For campaigns nearing $20 million, if 75% of the campaign is non-performing, then that lack of optimization within their campaign is equivalent to 15 million wasted dollars in advertising spending.
"Consumer behavior is constantly shifting and evolving, requiring marketers to react and optimize in real-time to assure they engage consumers when and where it matters most," said Todd Morris, CEO of InMarket. "Traditional media approaches focused on lowering the costs associated with advertising. However, today's advanced measurement technologies empower CMOs to drive unsurpassed experiences, outcomes and efficiency from existing investments. We're excited to partner with CMOs to help them better engage consumers while also driving improved media efficiency and effectiveness."
Some of North America's largest corporate marketing organizations and brands trust InMarket's award winning advanced LCI attribution solution to optimize their media investments. InMarket's LCI has become the industry's leading attribution platform for marketers and agencies to understand the impact of their omnichannel marketing spend from impression to visit to purchase.

"CMOs are facing growing budget pressures and increased expectations to drive positive ROAS from their media investments," said Donovan Neale-May, Executive Director of the CMO Council. "As a result, attribution adoption has become mission critical in order to accurately measure outcomes from media efforts, while further informing marketing and media strategies."
Spending on attribution software globally is expected to experience a strong 15.5% CAGR from 2022 to 2031, reaching $12.9 billion globally according to Allied Market Research. The CMO Council's 16,000-plus members control approximately $1 trillion in aggregated annual marketing expenditures and run complex, distributed marketing and sales operations worldwide.
