Executives at interactive agencies are uncertain about how clients will utilize digital marketing in the current economic downturn. Some foresee cuts to experimental media like viral video and mobile advertising, but also expect continued strength in direct-response advertising.

Every brand knows that digital is an important part of their marketing mix."
