More than one in three directors, vice presidents or other "upper-level" marketers intend to boost their upfront expenditures this year compared with 2008, while 39% plan to spend the same amount and 25% say they will cut spending, according to Advertiser Perceptions' Spring 2009 Media Economy Report. The research, which surveyed nearly 1,600 agency and marketing executives, showed a "leveling off" of the negative views offered at the beginning of 2009, said Ken Pearl, CEO of Advertiser Perceptions.
