UK Online Advertising Spend Reaches £2.8 billion in 2007

30th Apr 2008 News, Industry News Less than a minute to read

A recent survey carried out in partnership between the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), reveals that in the past three years, UK Internet advertising spend has increased by £2 billion.

This growth shows no sign of abating and indicates that investment in online advertising will overtake spend on television by the end of 2009.

At £2.8billion, the UK’s online advertising spend clearly makes a significant contribution to many businesses overall marketing output. With the country’s Internet population growing and the advertising techniques becoming more developed, there is huge scope for canny companies to take full advantage.

Pay per Click remains the most popular online advertising. With the ads appearing beside the main search results, there is a fantastic opportunity to get your product seen by a highly targeted audience. The continued growth within the market would certainly suggest that most sites are now receiving a pretty decent return on their investment too.

    Why Bing is a Valuable Paid Media Platform

    For a long time, Bing, the UK’s second-largest search engine, has been underappreciated and, in some instances, even ignored.  Often regarded as the inferior search engine to market leader Google, Bing has historically struggled to appeal to many in the digital world. Most PPC analysts would give justified reasons for neglecting Bing for so long; these include the volume of traffic and the user experience just not matching up to Google. However, the validity of these assessments is now diminishing. Bing has grown and improved rapidly in the last couple of years; if you are not integrating it into your comprehensive digital marketing plan, you run the risk of missing out on a large portion of your chosen market and significant revenue.
