There’s a hot new medium called the Internet

I just came across a thorough presentation compiled by Greg Stuart, former CEO and President of the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB). It is called an “In-Depth Introduction to Internet Advertising” and is a whopping 82 slides. However, it contains many great sound-bites as well as stats that any interactive marketer should have in their arsenal.

Here are a few stats that I’ll share next time I talk to a ‘traditional media’ marketer:

64% of US households answered “Computer with Internet Access” to the question “If you had to live on a deserted island and could only take one thing with you.” 18% said books, 6% said TV, 6% said radio, 4% said cell phone and 1% said newspaper subscription.

General Motors, the 3rd largest US advertiser, is ready to shift half of its 3 billion budget into digital and one-to-one marketing within the next 3 years.

In a multi-advertiser cross media optimization study (measuring on-line and off-line effects) sales increased by 11% on average from customers who had been exposed to online advertising, compared to those who hadn’t.

It cost about 4 times as much to increase purchase intention via magazine advertising and 11 times as much via TV - compared to online advertising.

There’s a lot more to read, especially on ad formats, measurements, online challenges (oh yeah, it’s not all honky-dory). You can find the full presentation here.

    Од 22 November, 2012 - 1:03 amI have been surfing on-line grtaeer than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    Harold, I dislike the term “TBM,” but let’s leave that aside. You just called the work of Eugene England, a faithful member of the Church all his life and one of the most beloved and respected Mormon writers that I know of (and who is deceased and therefore not available to defend himself) “a bit apostate.” All I can say is that you have a very questionable definition of “apostate.”
