I remember that in 2001 internetmarketing share was 1,9%. Nice growth but honestly, I would have hoped for more. Would be interesting topic for research (any university students here to pick this up?) why it increased so slowly when internet usage has really leaped during that time.

I’d blame un-innovative and stagnant internet media business that was content with the standard banner and occasional email burst. Very few people wanted to focus on this and really learn the market because it was much easier to sell the 30 second TV spot to the client and claim that they’ll get better return. Which, of course, isn’t the case.
