IN PEER REVIEWS WE TRUST CONSUMER REVIEWS OTHER AD TACTICS Vs. Consumer confidence in advertising has been swiftly shifting over the past five years; 7 in 10 Internet users now trust brand websites and consumer opinions over traditional forms of marketing and advertising. Where else has consumer confidence in advertising shifted? WHICH TACTICS DO YOU TRUST? According to the "Global Online Consumer Survey" by Nielsen, more users are likely to trust website and consumer opinion than editorial content, brand sponsorships, TV, and magazine ads. This means consumers rely more on word-of-mouth in decision-making processes and less on traditional forms of advertising. This may force advertisers to use a more realistic form of messaging.

CHANGES IN TRUST From 2007 to 2009 the media and advertising forms that have seen the greatest increase in trust levels are brand sponsorships, ads before movies, and recommendations from known people. Internet users are growing more and more doubtful of advertisements seen on newspapers, radio, magazines, and email subscriptions. Text message ads still remain the least trustworthy method of advertising, even though it has seen some growth.
