Consumers prefer favourite print magazines to favourite online sites as a place to look at ads, a study of consumer and marketers' attitudes to online advertising reports. 45% of consumers prefer their favourite magazine and 23% the favourite TV show. Among marketers, the trend to magazines is more pronounced with 55% saying they preferred to look at ads in their favourite magazine.
However, only 26 per cent of respondents pay full attention to ads in magazines and newspapers and only 7% to online ads.
(The study on behalf of Adobe Corp. was conducted by research firm Edelman Berland and involved 1,250 adults,18 years or older; including 1,000 general population and 250 Marketing Decision Makers, each in the U.S.)
