Online ad spending to overtake TV advertising in 2008

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

This is happening in Sweden, not the U.S., but still. This is just the beginning.

And this article from PaidContent U.K. says that Britian and Denmark will be next.

“Sweden will this year become the first country where internet ad spending will surpass that given over to TV ads, according to the This Year, Next Year 2008 forecast from WPP’s heavyweight Group M ad buying agency, released quietly last month. The UK will fall just short of the same watershed this year, finishing 2008 with online accounting for 24.8 percent of ad spend, just shy of the 26 gobbled up by TV (in Sweden, it will be 19.5 percent to the web, 19.2 percent to TV). But online will overtake telly in Britain and Denmark early in ‘09, the group predicts.”
