According to a new study conducted by Direct Partners, email has taken the lead over direct mail and other forms of traditional direct marketing. Even though consumers have become more selective about their email inboxes, marketers are turning to email to cut costs. In a recent article, Russell McDonald, CEO of iPost, says that retailers who turn to email marketing find they can better target their customers, gain better control over their campaigns and improve ROI 10 to 40 times.
Display / Web Ads
Even though internet display advertising has slowed in the first quarter of 2008, sales rose 8.5 percent to an estimated $2.9 billion in the first three months of 2008, according to research firm TNS Media Intelligence. Despite the slowing growth, Web ad sales are holding their own against the overall ad market expenditures and other traditional media. And Interpublic's Magna Global forecasts that emerging media platforms - including search, social media, online video, gaming, interactive TV, and digital out-of-home will grow 31.1% in 2009.
