Among those who use Internet advertising, just 14 percent say they only use it as a standalone digital campaign, while more than half (54 percent) say they use it as part of an integrated campaign with other media. One-third (33 percent) use Internet advertising in both types of campaigns equally.

To be successful, those that advertise on the Internet will need to come up with more engaging ways to connect with consumers."
