Marketers’ spending on advertising and communications is forecast to increase only .9 percent this year according to a new report being released next week at jackmyers.com. Total 2011 marketing and advertising spending was flat year-to-year, down from my original forecast last January of 1.4% growth.  For the past 25-years, Myers Report’s economic forecasts of advertising and marketing investments have been considered the industry’s most thorough and accurate. We provide the only economic report that incorporates all 62 advertising and marketing categories.
