Price of the media in China : Huge inflation
The increase in communication costs will force advertising budgets to increase. TV remains the medium of advertising seller where large chains such as China Central Television (CCTV), Beijing TV and Shanghai Media Group to exercise enormous power and influence. This achievement is not only commercially: For example, CCTV remains vocals of the central government and the media is the social, political and cultural.

The main factors for this increase were the increase in Internet penetration and popularity of micro-blogs, which allow users to send updates to small fragments. Micro-blogs are becoming increasingly popular in China, because they incorporate the features of the traditional blogs, instant messaging and mobile communications across platforms. more interactivity and ease of use have led to more regular updating of micro-blogs than traditional blogs in general. The growing popularity of microblogging in China requires advertisers and agencies to review their marketing strategy and communications.

Companies that advertise should be aware in online gaming that the industry still lacks a strong control over the content and the ability to monitor data, however.

newspapers is failing down !
In 2009, the main sources of advertising revenues in newspapers and business services, real estate and construction, automotive, which together accounted for approximately 50 percent of advertising revenues in newspapers China were. Driven by the Shanghai Expo, domestic services and tourism can cause in newspapers to higher advertising spending. The advertising revenues of newspapers is likely to increase 13 percent in 2010 and an increase of 5 percent in 2011, according to forecasts of GroupM. Despite rising advertising revenue, the newspaper industry is facing significant external and internal challenges. Intern unfair competition on prices, discounting and conflicts between the media groups developments in the sector have hindered. The external challenge comes from the emergence of new digital media. China's first digital newspaper, Zhejiang Daily, launched in February 2006 and 33 newspaper groups, more than 300 newspaper offices and more than 500 issues of the newspaper had gone digital by the end of 2008 How the pace of life increases in urban areas, citizens, no time or patience to sit a full story in the newspaper and read, prefer to access the latest news and entertainment information via the Internet or by mobile phone.

The advertising revenue of the magazine GroupM increased 12.8 percent compared to 2009 projects that income increased 18 percent in 2010 and to increase 5 percent in the year 2011th
The key factor for this growth is the increasing affluence of Chinese consumers. Rich consumers have a wider choice of lifestyle and leisure. Magazines who respond to wealthy consumers a small but loyal readership and offer value for brand advertising to strengthen. For example Bazaar Men, HisLife, Mr. Leon Modern and L'Officiel Hommes have all launched in China in the past two years to life have publishers the opportunity identified for magazines menswear in the Chinese market. China overtakes the US as the second largest luxury market in the world in 2009 and the future of his industry magazine advertising is bright. facing Like other traditional media, but the magazines are a threat to the digital media.

Hanvon Technology, Inc. and Sony Corp. also entered this market. In 2009, Chinese consumers bought 693,000 e-readers, up 121 percent over the previous year. This boom began in 2010 with more than 3 million sales of electronic readers.
Home Consumption in China
Although the performance of China outside the home (OOH), which remained stable from 2008 to 2009 promotes market for consumers in public places such as on billboards or traffic systems, the prospects for OOH advertising continues to be positive. GroupM projects Ooh advertising spending approximately 16 percent increase in 2010, mainly by the advances in digital OOH advertising. Three important factors affect the OOH market development in 2010: The Chinese government has made great efforts, the OOH market before and to regulate some traditional OOH panels during the Shanghai Expo and Guangzhou Asian Games, in particular by deleting. This left more space for the media to digital signage such as billboards mega-LED. To adjust these important events, the Chinese government has increased investment in the traffic in the city, which the development of liquid crystal displays in buses, subways and taxis has progressed. three-dimensional films have a mainstream cinema and cinema-advertising revenues were attracted increased accordingly. In the longer term, due OOH shipping restrictions in some cities and government restrictions on OOH advertising formats for major events, there may be fewer opportunities as sign display for the traditional formats of OOH advertising. OOH will survive in the cities, if it is a part of life in the city, and to integrate them into the planning and urban infrastructure.
radio, old fashion style
Businesses and services, cars, finance and post and communication are some of the largest categories of radio advertising. However, the most dynamic categories are detergent, clothing and household electronics. In particular, the cleaning sector increased its annual spending on radio advertising by 208 percent in the year of 2009. Consumers in shopping malls, supermarkets and fast food restaurants have great opportunities for radio advertising. Some radio stations have already begun to test in this new environment business. For example, broadcast Central Radio Voice popular programs in the city parks and shopping malls in Beijing for national holidays.
With the introduction of a better radio advertising monitoring system in 2009, advertisers are now more confident to invest in radio. Radio advertising revenue is likely to increase 22 percent in 2010 and by 10 percent in 2011. to increase in the long run, the radio must also incorporate new media. For example, Beijing Radio Listening Pub one of the most popular radio programs in Beijing. In the future, the radio can use the mobile Internet technology to enable online listening. Radio is no backup in the future planning of advertising if it is well equipped with more premium content, especially digital audio platforms.
Advertisers have more opportunities and more challenges ! Although television advertising media is currently dominant, the future of new media looks promising. A fast and complex advertising market in China will multiply the options, especially in digital media, events, sponsorship and other branded content. Each platform offers new ways to reach and engage with consumers. In addition, companies need to develop interactive and engaging communication strategies to reach consumers and maintain.
