Local Ad Spending Moving More to Mobile and Online

For many years, local advertising was placed in the newspaper, local radio and TV stations, in outdoor and direct mail.  Today, local advertising is spreading quicklyonline.  According to a company that tracks local ad spending, BIA/Kelsey Media, local ad spending overall is growing at an annual rate of 2/6% and will continue to do so, with the greatest growth coming in online and mobile advertising.

If you’ve been increasing your ad investment in digital advertising, you’re not alone.  And if you haven’t been, you may be left behind.  More and more local digital options are available, and businesses are seeing a solid return on their investments.  While local radio, TV, and newspaper aren’t going away soon (we hope), they too are offering more and more on line options, and that trend will also continue.
