  • Digital ad future is now for Ford
    Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and other social-media tools offer more word-of-mouth impact at a smaller cost than advertising on a traditional big-ticket event, such as the Super Bowl, according to Ford marketing chief Jim Farley. The automaker is spending one in four ad dollars on digital media, about two times the amount that is projected to be the average digital budget in 2012. "Customers are spending as much time with the mobile smartphone or online as they are watching TV now, so our advertising dollars have to flow to where the people are," Farley said.

  • Report: U.S. e-tailing is up 9% to $32.1B
    Consumer online spending in the U.S. in Q3 rose 9% to $32.1 billion, compared with the same period in 2009, according to comScore. The uptick marked the fourth consecutive quarterly increase for the e-tailing segment. Although the growth is "a fairly positive indicator for the upcoming holiday season," the high unemployment rate could dampen seasonal shopping, said comScore Chairman Gian Fulgoni.

Still, managers may not see the whole picture, says Scott Erker, senior vice president of Development Dimensions, which did the study. "People have blind spots about where they're weak," he says.
