1.0 UK Media Environment Analysis
With the development of internet, the British are gradually changing media environment (Scolari, 2012). According to the figure of Warc Expenditure Report (2011), it was shown that only the proportion of internet advertising was growing year by year. By 2010, the Internet has shared 26% of total advertising expenditure (Figure 1). It also was found in figure 1 that traditional media such as newspapers, magazines, television had a decreasing trend from 2005 to 2010, 0% of 5-year growth rate was on television and outdoor, 5-year growth rate of magazines and newspapers were respectively 11% and 8%. Mitel (2009) data was shown that 70% of UK adults are now online, among them, the majority having home broadband. Internet users are more likely to browse the internet every day (85%) than watch TV (75%). In this situation, revenues from radio advertising were down 8.5% in 2008, while TV was down 4.9%, causing both markets to decline (Mintel, 2009).
Although printed media is in decline and electronic media is up, there are 80% of British adults reading a local newspaper (Davidson, 2013). The research of Mintel (2009) points out that the popularity of Free view drives digital TV uptake, with 88.2% of households receiving multichannel TV by 2008. Mintel (2009) estimates that TV subscriptions would increase and the number of multichannel households continue to climb.
Overall, the recent British media environment has changed a lot. Obviously, electronic media develop rapidly. Traditional media, however, cannot be ignored. According to the data of Mintel (2010), total UK advertising spend fell by around 13% in 2009, with press advertising the worst affected; internet advertising grew from 8% to 23% of total UK ad spend over the past five years, overtaking TV. Fill et al (2013) revealed in their studies that the cost of Internet rose dramatically between 2000 and 2011, from 155 million to 4,784 million. In spied of this, the expenditure of traditional media, such as television and radio, has a slight decline (Figure 2). Rapid changes in the media environment are the opportunity of advertising communication, as it can break the previous mode of transmission, opening up new channels of communication. In the same time, rapid changes in the media environment are also challenges for the consistency of advertising communication and media tool. That must be considered how to use a combination of new media and traditional media to spread the advertising of Audi A3 E-Tron Sprtback. 2.0 Media Consumption Habits of Over 35-years-old Men
