HubSpot’s 100 Awesome Marketing Stats, Charts and Graphs

HubSpot has posted its newest collection of 100 Awesome Marketing Stats, Charts and Graphs.

It’s based on original research and data from a bunch of sources, including analysis of 4,500 HubSpot customers, surveys with hundreds of small and medium-sized businesses, and dozens of publications such as MarketingSherpa, eMarketer, Pew Research and McKinsey.
