Advertising Spending Continues to Move to the Internet

The recession has only slowed its pace of growth. Strange as it may seem, the crisis accelerated the transition to digital advertising for many businesses.

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

In contrast to traditional advertising, digital advertising continues to grow. Internet participation in the total expenditure on advertising is growing at least 1% annually. To put it in simple terms: Advertisers are increasingly putting more money into Internet advertising, while they are decreasing spending on newspapers, radio and magazines.

In an article in Emarketer.com, David Hallerman, eMarketer senior analyst and author of the new report, “U.S. Advertising Spending: The New Reality,” says: “Digital marketing offers compelling benefits, especially for cash-conscious companies. Marketers can more readily measure the results of Internet advertising than with most traditional media. This produces more-efficient advertising and higher ROI, which in turn pushes traditional media to compete with lower pricing.”

Advertising expenditure is abandoning traditional media, especially print newspapers and magazines, and instead turning to digital media, where results are concrete and objective, and where there is a superior return on investment.

A report published by eMarketer gives clear conclusions: The share of digital media in the advertising pie is growing at the expense of print media, in line with changes in the patterns of consumer behaviour change, which are not being reported in mainstream media, people are spending more time in front of screens connected to the Internet, where they enjoy more and better information, and interact with advertisers.

While traditional media continue to lead in advertising investment, in Guatemala the portion of the budget devoted to online media - websites, social media and mobile devices is growing, reaching about 10% of the total, noting that the country is following the trend of developed countries, where even the reign of television as the premier advertising medium is being challenged by the Internet.
