1.1 BACKGROUND
Advertising has long been a part of most integrated marketing communication plans, most advertisers have concentrated on television media, having the highest reach. But with the onset of the recession the focus of advertisers has shifted from tr aditional media to online media (Kirchhoff, 2009).
