Internet marketing is a multi-billion pound global industry, digital media is being allocated more and more of companies advertising budgets each year and is currently sitting at an all time high.

So the questions needs to be asked, who is ensuring the thousands of companies who are being entrusted with these budgets are qualified, ethical, audited, transparent, genuine, etc ??.

We are seeing more and more companies coming to us with horror stories about being duped into handing over significant budgets to online marketing agencies only to discover that they were lied to about how there money would be spent and the results they could expect.

When is the government going to get involved and help the industry clean up its act. Choosing your next digital agency should not be a game of Russian roulette. Regulation and governance is long overdue.
