Despite being daily exposed to dozens of ads—including on television, in print, and on the Web—most Americans (55%) say they find advertising to be interesting ("very" or "somewhat"), though fully 41% say it is not interesting, a recent poll found.
Advertisers, however, should not get too excited: Only 8% of Americans say current ads are "very" interesting while 47% say they are "somewhat" interesting, according to (pdf) an AdweekMedia/Harris Poll of 2,521 adults surveyed online June 4-8, 2009.
How interesting are ads?
Younger adults and those with higher incomes are more likely to consider ads interesting. Two-thirds of adults age 18-34 (66%) and 60% of adults age 35-44 think the ads are interesting as do 62% of those Americans with a household income of $75,000 or more.
