    3. 6. Advertising dollars are going online where consumers are, and returns are more easily quantified. Key findings include: • Print, while still the largest recipient of ad dollars (40%), will continue to lose share as online share grows to 20%. • Advertisers rate online advertising very effective for branding, contrary to common wisdom that online shines at leads but is weak for branding. • The results are in line with a trend of increased marketing dollars being committed to online activity, and a decrease in spending on traditional media such as print, TV and radio. • The news isn’t so good for traditional marketing channels such as print, television and radio. 44% of executives plan a decrease in newspaper ad spend, 34% plan a decrease in radio ad spend and television ad spend looks set to take a 30% hit. Put another way, these top-tier marketers increased measured internet spending by $1 billion; slashed newspaper spending by $674 million; and cut TV budgets by $406 million.
