Apple Marketing Report

In 2007 Apple reported an increase of $ 129 million in advertising spending that
amounted to $ 467 million.

As the media pointed out, Apple avoided a centralized strategy by letting its videos
proliferate on the web. Its first spot created to present the iPad in March 2010 got viral in a
short space of time. Another issue is that of the tablet, which practically was promoted alone
appearing in programs and successful television series like Modern Family.

Despite this, Apple continues to spend a significant amount on television advertising. In
2013, 80% of its media spending was on television according to Ad Age's DataCenter. This tells
us that the most profitable company in the world spends little on advertising. Only 0.64% of
Apple's revenue went to advertising. Relevant data compared to its main competitor,
Samsung, which spent 1.82% of its worldwide revenue in television ads and 3.51% in sales
promotion.

According to the group's annual report, Apple has invested $ 1.8 billion in advertising this
fiscal year 2015. This data reveals that they have allocated a 50% more budget than the
previous year to advertise. In fact, the company has nearly tripled its annual advertising
spending compared to 2010, which recorded $ 691 million.
