Revenue Grows 8.6%, Propelled by Digital

Advertising Age – Agency Report 2008 Index

AdvertisingAge_AgencyReport_Pie_050508

Revenue for U.S. agencies — advertising, marketing services and media — jumped 8.6% in 2007 despite a tepid ad market. And for that, you can thank digital. While it comes as no surprise that revenue at digital specialty agencies rocketed last year (up 26.8% in the U.S.), it’s clear that digital services have become a way of life (or a way to avoid death) for agencies of all disciplines. In fact, U.S. ad agencies reported an average 10.2% of revenue from digital in 2007.

The Big 4 ad firms — Omnicom Group, WPP Group, Interpublic Group of Cos. and Publicis Groupe — last year generated 12.3% of worldwide revenue from digital services.
