Yes advertiser’s are feeling the pinch at the moment and having to deal with budget cuts…

But, perhaps this will lead to more targeted advertising, less clutter, more innovative campaigns on shoestring budgets?

The current bright light seams to be Google Adwords, perhaps the advertising industry can learn something from that model.

The smaller a company’s advertising budget is, the less upwards pressure it will exert on the prices of that company’s goods in the shops. The customers aren’t having to shell out extra money in order to be annoyed by adverts they don’t want.
