Hi All Agency Folk, as the EU/Global recession prepares to take hold we all must be wondering whether and how internet/digital marketing budgets will be affected. Sure, logic says digital marketing (if done well) has provable better ROI than offline but since when did logic really matter?
What are you seeing? Are budgets being cut? Are you getting a bigger share of a smaller pot?
Should we be shifting our attention away from Marketers who still seem intent on propping up traditional media and should we refocus on the financial benefits of digital marketing? Should we be targeting Finance Directors so they can "tell" marketing to allocate a bigger share to online? What should we say to these Finance/Budget Controllers?
have you got or seen compelling "financial" evidence for internet marketing that we can all share. I feel that if our industry is to better than most we should do more than dig in our holes, watch internet usage grow and pray we do fine. perhaps some collaborative efforts to share compelling ROI stories?
In our case we predicted 100% growth this year but we are revising that down to about 50%. 2009 however is very unclear.
