Private Frazer’s Doomed Magazines

Also Worthless

The Advertising Association have just released their stats on last year’s advertising expenditure. (That’s as in 2008 – prompt or what?) They show a 4% total drop in spend and a decline in newspapers and magazines of 11.8%.

Compared to what we’re all used to, that doesn’t seem so bad, but remember that in April last year, the AA was forecasting that 2008 would see overall growth of over 3%.

As mentioned before, it’s worth taking all AA forecasts with a bucket of salt.
