The latest forecast from Forrester Research predicts that

2014 and will grow - at a compound annual growth rate of
17% - from 12% of overall ad spend in 2009 to 21% over
the next five years.

Social media marketing and mobile marketing will
experience the highest growth rates among the digital
tactics, the report stated. Social media, which represents
only $716M today, is expected to balloon to $3.1B by
2014, and grow at the highest compound annual rate,
34%. Forrester noted that owned social media assets
(such as internal blogs, community sites) are currently the
only emerging media getting traction in today’s economic
climate.

We live in an evolving world where everything is in constant

THE MARKET FOR NEXT YEARS IS REAL Twitter’s Financial Forecast
Shows First Revenue In Q3, 1
billion users in 2013
TWITTER GROWTH
This internal Twitter financial forecast from February 2009.
Twitter has told us that this was never an official document
and it certainly is no longer accurate. But it gives an
interesting glimpse into the company’s financial targets
nonetheless. The projections go forward to 2013.

The most interesting data point - As of February, Twitter
expected their first revenue to come in Q3 2009 (which is
now). A modest $400,000 was expected, followed by a
more robust $4 million in Q4. The document also shows
Twitter’s projected user growth (25 million by the end of
2009), which it has absolutely blown through already. By the
end of 2010, Twitter expected to be at a $140 million
revenue run rate.
