Online Media News:
Being an online media company, we closely follow trends and changes in the industry. Despite the current downturn in the economy, we have continued to see good growth and the following article forecasts this to continue:
Veronis Suhler Stevenson had some sobering news with its annual Communications Industry Forecast -- with some notable exceptions. VSS predicted that many media sectors would continue to experience declines in revenues in 2009, including newspapers (down 18.7%), consumer magazines (down 14.8%) and radio (down 11.7%). But in newer media, the opposite is true, as VSS expects mobile ads to rise 18.1%, Internet ads to be up 9.2%, and PR and word of mouth marketing to be up 4.9%. Another big finding in the report was that in 2008, people spent more time with media they paid for, such as books and cable TV, than with more ad-supported media such as print periodicals. "What's really stark is that advertising, which not so long ago was the biggest part of the overall pie, is now the smallest part of the pie and is shrinking at a pretty good clip," VSS exec James P. Rutherfurd told the New York Times.
