I worked for 14 years in the commercial printing industry and I've seen gradual declines [in print advertising] every year. That's why I left the industry. Online spending has a much brighter future!
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
SearchMarketMe and its network of 100+ independent Internet Marketing Agency Owners embraced last week's industry reports that show US-based internet marketing expenditures surpassing print media expenditures in 2012.
"We've seen internet marketing expenditures increase sharply over the last few years, even right through the recession," said SearchMarketMe President & CEO, S. Boyd Karren. "But it really is remarkable that it has already grown to surpass the amount of money spent in newspapers and magazines, and now only trails the total spend on television."
For the 100+ independent Internet Marketing Agency Owners that affiliate with SearchMarketMe, the news was very much in line with their own experiences.
"I worked for 14 years in the commercial printing industry and I've seen gradual declines every year," said Randy Cook, of iNet Solutions in Salt Lake City, Utah, who recently contracted with SearchMarketMe to provide training and support in opening and operating his internet marketing agency. "That's why I left the industry. Online spending has a much brighter future!"
"Advertising expenditures follow eyeballs," said SearchMarketMe's Director of Education, Will Rak. "More and more people are spending more and more time online now than they are reading newspapers and magazines, and so we're seeing a natural migration away from print, to online marketing."
"As a result of the major shift in expenditures into online marketing, we are continuing to field an increasing number of requests about our training and support program," added Karren. "People who, like Randy Cook, see the change happening, and want to be in a position to grow with it by opening an internet marketing agency."
