The advertising market in numbers: new developments and consistency in the Austrian advertising market

In an effort to examine the developments in the advertising market more closely, companies were asked how they use their advertising budgets and whether they distribute their budgets differently. This information allowed us to determine which advertising channels are currently gaining popularity in Austria.

Surveyed businesses and consumers revealed interesting facts: flyers still remain the most effective advertising medium for increasing purchases. Likewise, brochure platforms are still popular sources of information for finding the latest deals and discounts.

Increasing advertising spending and different development depending on the advertising channel

A look at advertising spending shows a 3 percent increase. In addition, spending on online marketing  exceeded the billion mark for the first time. Spending on DOOH also spiked significantly. Interestingly, event-like activities have the highest increase in advertising expenditure.

Companies across many industries also plan to increase their budget for all advertising channels in the future. As a result, advertising forms such as personally addressed advertising mail will become more and more relevant.

The relevance of awareness marketing

This year's special section is all about awareness marketing. In our own survey, we studied the relevance and use of awareness marketing for businesses. Read the study to find out which advertising channels attract the most attention among consumers, among many other topics.
