    AdStage’s Q4 2018 Paid Media Benchmark Report

    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.

    Use these numbers as helpful comparative points to determine the success of your own results. Are you paying more than everyone else for clicks on Facebook? Knowing that Bing’s CTR ended 0.42% above Google’s, is it time to integrate Bing into your marketing mix?
