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.
