Some interesting statistics on the rise of web marketing and the decline of traditional media.
- Newspapers: circulation, which peaked in 1987, is declining faster than ever and is down another 2.6% so far this year.
- Music: CD sales are down 10% this year; even digital downloads are flat.
- Books: down by 7% this year.
- Banner ads: up 10%
- Google revenue: up 96%
Yeah, I think I’m on the right side of the equation when it comes to marketing.
