Google Revenue More Than All Print Combined


If you had to read that headline several times we understand. That seems impossible being that Google was founded only 14 years ago. According to the German statistic company Statista, Google took in $20 billion in advertising revenue between January and June of this year. All newspapers and magazines combined brought in just under $20 billion. The print industry has been around for more than 100 years.

Check out the chart, which shows how print revenue has declined since 2004 HERE

One of my good friends works in Google sales. Interestingly, she was telling me they do not have regular sales meetings (they meet with a mgr when there is a specific need to). And, there are no outside consultants associated in any way with their sales teams. They spend virtually100% of their time selling! Imagine how radio stations could increase their ad sales, if they followed a similar strategy.
