It also shared insights about how multi-channel marketing managers can make more strategic investments in people, process and technologies to support their co-op advertising programs.

How could almost 48 percent of appropriated funds go unused every year – a total Gleanster estimated at $35 billion? Especially considering eight of ten brand marketers believe co-op and MDF programs drive sales and have value? We asked the same question.
