Traditional advertising is losing its effectiveness. Television commercials, classified ads, and yellow page ads are simply not working very well and are extremely expensive. Studies have shown almost all consumers, 97% to be exact, use the internet to research the products and services they intend to buy before making a purchasing decision. This is even true for people who intend to buy locally.
- 97% of internet users gather shopping information online
- 51% of consumers shop online and buy offline
- 73% of internet searches are related to local content
