Interesting numbers on marketing spend and strategic differentiation

A few interesting numbers:

  • Universities – US has ~3000 for-profit colleges. 40% of Americans have college degrees. For-profit colleges spent about one-third of their revenues on advertising1
  • Strategic differentiation – Although 80% of company managers thought their companies were strongly differentiated, only 10% of customers agreed2. Wow. BTW – The article is from a bunch of strategy partners from Bain. Worth a read.
