He suggested this method offers a “rationale for reallocation of budget from less ‘trackable’ marketing tactics”.

The expert added that it would not be unreasonable for those in charge of advertising funds to switch focus when the cost of one TV commercial can equate to a year’s worth of online promotion.

A recent survey by Omniture revealed that 80 per cent of industry professionals agreed that online marketing is important to measure, but only 31 per cent of respondents said they could gage it effectively.
