Gordon Borrell presented this year at the Chicago LMA Digital Summit and during a long Q & A, a media exec in the audience asked a great question:
He asked: “If you could do just one thing in your market to start capturing more Digital Revenue, what would that be?” Without hesitation, Gordon Replied: “I’d start a Digital Agency.”
Yesterday, Borrell & Associates released a sneak peek of a new report “Local Advertising at the Tipping Point” that backs up this statement in a big way.
The report summarizes the findings from a Survey Borrell did with over 7,000 Small to Medium Business (SMBs)
- SMB’s now spend 5X more on Digital Services than Digital Marketing
- 72% of SMBs are now buying managed Digital Services of some kind.
- SMBs are more likely to pay someone to manage their social media than buy Banner ads.
- More Mom & Pops are embracing Newspapers (Surprised?)
- Advertisers planning to increase TV, Radio budgets next 12 months – although some radio clients at risk.
