Graph For Advertising Media

Posted by Anonymous on 250 Points

What I am trying to find is a graph which shows how advertisers are spending their dollars between different media. For example, what percentage is going to online, vs. direct mail or television advertising.

I found a chart that showed ROI but that doesn't really help me because I'm trying to illustrate growth or decline in particular media.

Any suggestions?

    Are you looking for worldwide figures, or just a particular country/region? Does it have to be a graph, or would raw data answer the question? Also, do you need absolute dollars, inflation-adjusted dollars, or just percentage of total spending? Need it only for the current/most recent year, or tracking over a period of time? If the latter, how far back do you need to go?

    Try this:

    TNS Media Intelligence

    Is that what you're looking for? All questions above still apply, but this looks like a good starting point if you're in the US and don't need a long history.

    You are right that is a good place to start, I didn't even know about that source of information-Thank you.

    To answer your question I am looking for U.S. figures, and a percentage of total spending for the past 3 to 5 years. If I can't get it for that period then 2004 is fine.

    Does that help? It doesn't necessarily need to be a graph-it was just my personal preference because I wanted to use it in a paper and a presentation.

    However, if necessary I can make the graph myself.

    Thanks for your help.
