Online Advertising Spending Trumps TV Ad Spending
Though you probably already knew this, marketing and advertising through newspapers, magazines and billboards is almost dead.
Because TV and Internet are delivering the tangible results that companies are looking for. But even these digital platforms are not equal.
eMarketer’s 2016 digital ad spending forecast predicted that online marketing would, for the first time in history, surpass that of television in 2017. While TV ad spending is expected to increase by about 2% each year, it’s total share of all digital (and print) ad spending will steadily decrease. Filling the gap will be online marketing with the fastest growth seen in mobile ad spending.
This significant increase indicates that companies are realizing the tremendous ROI of spending their marketing time and money on the Internet—the place the majority of people turn to for local business information and the only medium that can track a company’s advertising investment dollar for dollar.

What is Social Media?
Social media is any medium that is designed to have social interaction.
In today’s business circles, the most commonly discussed social media platforms are Facebook, Twitter and blogging through websites like eblogger or wordpress. Though these are the most widely known, there are many platforms available for social media.
By allowing user-generated content, social media has empowered consumers and given them a voice. This is something television has not been able to do. Rather than having a marketing campaign talk at them on the television, social media users can get involved in the campaign, giving them the ability to personally make a contribution or difference in that campaign. Having this connection is important to a consumer.
Using Social Media to Market Your Business
Say goodbye to the idea that social media is for personal use only. Many companies have had great success by using social media to market their services or products—and recognizing this for your company can have a large impact on brand recognition and sales.
Another important advantage of using social media is having your search engine optimization expand. If your company has a great search engine optimized website, you are on the right path. By expanding your Internet marketing campaign to include a social media presence on Facebook and Twitter, you can increase your visibility to tens of thousands more people.
