A look back at the 2006 Mountainair Monties: Introducing....the Mountainair Monty

Is the internet an effective tool for advertising? For promoting Mountainair, local organization and events? In other words is it a total waste of your time to send me stuff? Maybe the results of this survey will help you decide:
A survey conducted by Deloitte & Touche shows that of 2,081 consumers questioned, 38% watch television shows online, while 36% use their cell phones as entertainment devices, and 45% are creating online content such as websites, videos and blogs. The study, which was conducted between October 25-31 for American consumers, aims to look at the advertising potential of the web, television, and mobile devices.
The same survey was also conducted from February 23 to March 6, 2007, with results indicating a steady increase in use for all three sectors. Varyiations depended on age demographics. Consumers age 25-41 saw the largest increase for mobile entertainment use, up 47%, while those in the 13-24 age bracket saw a similar 46% increase.
When asked what type of ads were most effective, an 85% majority found television ads to work best on their buying habits but Internet ads were second best. 65% of the surveyed consumers felt that Internet ads have the most impact, beating out magazine ads, at 63%.
