Share Article

Summer 2007's Internet Design & Development #11 is the company's 11th consecutive survey of the Web design markets--ad, PR, and interactive agencies; Web design, development, and production companies; graphic designers; and corporate Internet departments--and provides a detailed look at the status of establishments in these markets, including business conditions (current and expected), top business challenges, top new business opportunities, investment plans and projections, and current media, technology, and business trends. -- The Industry Measure.

The Industry Measure today released the latest results of its yearly survey of the Internet design and development markets, the most recent in a series of surveys that the company has conducted since 2000.

The 275-page report contains the results of an extensive mail survey of the Internet design markets and features The Industry Measure's standard "boilerplate" questions about Business Conditions, Business Challenges, Sales Opportunities, and Planned Investments (as well as 12-month Investment Projections of more than 100 equipment, hardware, and software categories, including expected number of units shipped and dollar values). The Summer 2007 survey also asked several specialty questions on such topics as stock photography use (the number of images used and projected spending on stock), the perceived effectiveness of a wide variety of Web site features, tasks performed by Web developers, and the media channels used by Web marketers and developers.

In addition to the results of the current survey, Internet Design & Development #11 also draws on The Industry Measure's seven-year database of survey results to put current findings in historical perspective and examine how past and present trends will likely play out in the future. How are media trends affecting these companies? Where do they see their companies going in both the near- and long-term? What hardware, software, and equipment are they buying to meet their expected needs?
