  • Ad Spend Fuels Economic Growth- Ad Age

    Press Releases   October 8, 2007  

    NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- Steve Ballmer has discovered the gospel of advertising -- again. And he'll need all his evangelical powers to convince the world's largest marketers at this week's Association of National Advertisers conference in Phoenix that this time, he means it. If Mr. Ballmer's message to marketers falls anywhere near what he told the European advertising community in Paris last week, he'll talk about the increasingly blurry lines between software and media and advertising. He'll discuss how Microsoft itself is a huge marketer, spending $3 billion on advertising. And he'll outline how, in four to 10 years, advertising will account for as much as 25% of Microsoft's business. For those of you who are counting, based on the most recent year's revenue that would be north of $12 billion -- a couple billion more than Google made in total last year.
