The year ahead for digital
Adweek have a sensible account of what the forthcoming year may bring describing that 'according to researcher eMarketer, online ad spending will climb 8.9 percent next year, from $23.6 billion to $25.7 billion. Back in August, just prior to Wall Street's meltdown, eMarketer predicted that spending would surge 14 percent in 2009. But the economy is now taking its toll on all segments of media'. Here is a roundup of how that spending may pan out.
