As MediaPost reports, that share has fallen from 12% to 5% in the year running September 2022 to August 2023. 

Guideline compiled the ad spend data from “actual invoiced media buys processed by the major agency holding companies and big independent media agencies,” MediaPost says, making it “more reflective of big national brands and doesn’t necessarily represent the ad spending patterns of small and medium size businesses.”
