This data shows why it is so critical to build a holistic communications strategy. Consumers worldwide have increasingly digitalised their media consumption and online now dominates the way they spend their day. This is a clear argument for online media to get a greater share of advertising spend, regardless of where you are in the world, said Tom Smith, founder of GlobalWebIndex.
