Why Online Matters More than Print

Bear Market Hits Online Ads

  • Big story at the IAB (INteractive Advertising Board) conference this week - IDC went from a 10% growth estimate to a %% decline estimate
  • Online does not equal Inbound - Banner ads are still distration based advertising - the ROI is not that high in most cases, therefore they shoudl be an area you would cut first
  • Marketing Takeaway:  Remember that inbound has higher ROI and all online is not inbound. 

The Long Tail is Getting Longer and Fatter

Marketing Tip of the Week: Be your own publisher. Don't rely on gatekeepers to relay your news. Why not start your own blog?
