Depending on your perspective, the landscape for digital media companies has never looked better—or worse. Existing trends such as the shift towards cord-cutting have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, creating a potential boom environment for streaming providers.

Traditional written-word content delivered via the web and email, meanwhile, has been experiencing massive disruption for decades — but our data suggests that despite lingering privacy concerns, consumers are finally admitting to being on the receiving end of more relevant content and ad experiences.

In this new, in-depth research report from performance marketing leader What If Media Group, nearly 30,000 Americans were surveyed in order to find out:

  • How many Americans “cut the cord” in 2020; how many plan to do so in the year ahead; and which services they’ll be adding and cutting from their households (the numbers are huge and may shock you!)
  • How much Americans are willing to spend on content and how many subscriptions they have, whether for video (steaming services) or written-word content (email and online publications).
  • Consumer perceptions of digital advertising — including encouraging signs that data-driven marketing is yielding greater ad effectiveness for marketers and more relevancy for consumers.
