“Interactive advertising continues to demonstrate year over year growth as marketers and consumers increase their embrace of digital media.
Compared to the trajectory in other media and in the general economy, interactive has outperformed because it delivers a level of accountability unmatched by any other advertising medium.”, said Randall Rothenberg, President and CEO, IAB.

“Due to the unique efficiency and effectiveness of targeted and measurable campaigns, internet advertising has shown strong growth in the first six months of 2008, compared to the same time period last year. This growth has come in spite of an environment that has put significant pressure on theadvertising industry in general.”, said David Silverman, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.
