Should Digital Out-of-Home media be rebranded as Public Video? That was the suggestion of Digital Place-Based Advertising Association Chairman and Zoom Media CEO François de Gaspé Beaubien at last week’s DailyDOOH (Digital Out-of-Home) Investor Conference. He boldly called for a complete out-of-home rebrand and recommended that the medium change its name to Public Video in order to tap into digital ad spend. If online video is the fastest growing segment, he argued, then why not infiltrate that domain? Public video is direct, concise and reflective of the media, de Gaspe Beaubien pointed out.Read More
National Geographic Channel, a network that in recent years has become known for its uncommonly creative publicity and promotion practices, faces just such challenges in the month ahead when it will debut “Eat: The Story of Food,” a three-night, six-hour documentary miniseries beginning Friday, November 21 that should leave sated anyone hungry for fresh information and fascinating historical footnotes about the title subject, and two new ongoing half-hour series, “Eric Greenspan is Hungry,” in which the celebrity chef travels around the country in search of the best meat, poultry and shellfish recipes, and “Chug,” a series in which comedian and TV host Zane Lamprey travels the world sampling the finest cocktails (and some interesting cuisine). “Greenspan” and “Chug” debut on Monday, November 24.Read More
This week I celebrate the three-year anniversary of when I decided to start i. Predictus (the ones we are counting). I am often asked why there are no women on my board or more in my company or why I don’t have women investors. The answer is simple: They have not appeared yet. Women have appeared on my journey; entrepreneurs like me who started their first company with the support of a man willing to invest in them, their spirit and drive. Many of the women I have encountered (not all but enough) have not reached their hand out to me, but in fact have presented obstacles to me instead. They come in the form of legal letters, industry gossip and overall fear-mongering. I am not sure why that is but again there are not many of us so the few that exist should take inventory.Read More
We have arrived at the moment where brands have just started to effectively translate their storytelling prowess to digital media and find the means of getting those stories in front of willing audiences. Conversely, audiences have only been willing insofar as the stories coming from brands are authentic and valuable to their day-to-day existence. There’s plenty of evidence to support the notion that consumers don’t lose any sleep over who produces the content they enjoy. In fact, consumers have developed an expectation that the brands on their radars should produce content serially. A recent TNS study found that 60% of consumers expect owned content from brands, nearly half of them (46 %) follow their favorite brands’ blogs, while 40% of consumers are disappointed in brands that don’t produce or maintain a blog, citing everything from laziness to fading relevance as reasons a brand might not bother with content.Read More
