Sensis: ‘Traditional and Digital Together is Far More Powerful Than Digital Alone’
May 5, 2010 | Contributed by: Stephanie Hobbs
Earlier this week, I shared an article I wrote for Search Engine Land that talked about the importance of multi-platform advertising in generating new leads for local businesses.
Today, I’m happy to see that our Australian member Sensis—which I cited in the article—also shares my view that generating local business visibility across various channels increases the opportunity for meaningful results.
In a post on the company’s blog, Speaking Sensis, Wayne Aspland discusses two recent studies which show that despite common perceptions, both digital and traditional media usage are up recently. As he explains, increases in online usage have not come at the expense of traditional usage – instead, digital and traditional usage have grown together.
Given this data, Wayne argues that “we should put an end to these phony media wars and start realizing we’re all in this together…because, clearly, that’s what consumers (and advertisers) want.”
I couldn’t agree more. Here’s the link to Wayne’s post.
