The last quarter of the year is the most important for marketers, and the massive amount of data we combed through to deliver Q4’s Benchmark Report is proof. We used 13.3 billion impressions and over 135 million clicks to calculate median CPC, CPM, and CTR for Facebook ads (News Feed, the Audience Network, and FB Messenger), Google Ads (Search and Display), Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google, YouTube, and Bing.
