Small Players Have a Big Impact on Digital Marketing

Small Players Have a Big Impact on Digital MarketingAccording to a new report from BIA/Kelsey, digital ad spending in local media is on pace to grow at a compound annual rate of 14% in the next five years.

Digital ad spending will hit $23.1 billion this year and balloon to $44.5 billion in 2017.

More rapid digital growth is predicted to drive a 2.8% increase in total local media ad sales to $151.5 billion by 2017.

MediaPost reports that mobile local ad spending will grow especially fast, in part, “because it’s starting from a smaller base.”

After a 6% gain in 2013, BIA/Kelsey projects that local digital ad sales will jump almost 16% to $30.7 billion next year as a result of various factors, including a slightly improving U.S. economy, a more positive investor outlook, and the 2014 elections and Winter Olympics.

Not surprisingly, the market introduction of the Affordable Healthcare Act is also expected to drive greater local ad spending.
