In fact, to help you guys understand it a little better, Inc. worked out that it equates to roughly $11.54 from every single person on Earth and is more than the GDP of most countries. This makes Google untouchable in the ad world and the only company that even comes close to this figure is Facebook, which brings in a reported $36.3 billion a year from it’s ad space. But Combine these dominant players and they account for 83% of all advertising spend worldwide, leaving companies like Yahoo!, Microsoft, and Snapchat to pick at the bones.
