Eric Steinert of Adspace Networks on Capturing Consumers at the Point of Sale
Eric Steinert, CRO of Adspace Networks, has always been in the out of home marketing and advertising sales space. From college he joined the sales training program at News America Marketing selling print space to packaged goods clients and gaining experience with retail signage before joining MasterCard. From there he moved to Adspace Networks and helped to build a massive video network with the nation’s top mall developers. According to Steinert, “The moment of truth [to make consumer buying decisions] is in the common area of the mall. We reach the consumer when they are in a shopping frame of mind and cannot skip the ads.”
ANA: Content Marketing is Heating Up. But Don’t Burn Out!
Creating and publishing emotional, engaging content continues to be one of the hottest trends for marketers going into 2016. The ANA’s Ask-the-Expert research team has received a steady stream of questions about content marketing over the last five years.
The Future of National Television, Addressables, Content Creation: Part 4
One might say that the initial impact of the Internet and the World Wide Web were to devalue content, e.g. news, and that would be a true statement. For the years right before the bubble burst on the naïve expectations of the '90s, my companies and I were warning clients that the math didn’t work, and that the main impact of digital was going to be price wars and lower margins, not only in content but in all product categories. This turned out to be the case.
KCRW: A Destination for Discovery
The radio industry recently touted stats from Nielsen’s Music 360 report about the dominance of radio as a music discovery source versus the big streaming services to the surprise (and delight) of some. While on-demand audio track streams have doubled in a year, people listing AM/FM radio as their destination for new music actually rose 7%. Yay radio. But it takes a diligent radio station to be all things to all music lovers given increasingly easy access to platform choices. The paragon of multi-platform audio meets music discovery source? Santa Monica College-owned KCRW.
Final Review: MediaVillage Team Coverage of Super Bowl Sunday
A Note from Jack Myers: The editorial team at MediaVillage this year brought a fresh perspective to our annual coverage of the Super Bowl telecast. Last week, veteran media columnist Stuart Elliott sized up the competition between long-time Super Bowl advertisers and newcomers, while Charlotte Lipman revealed how fantasy football has given young women a new appreciation of the sport -- especially the Super Bowl. This week, Stuart offered his signature distinctive commentary about the commercials, while Charlotte reported on the Super Bowl from an entirely new perspective, focusing on ads that ran during competing programs on other networks. Meanwhile, Connor Zickgraf explained how the depiction of gender roles in commercials changed from Super Bowl XLIX to SBL; Kristi Faulkner exposed the absence of brand stories in most Super Bowl commercials, and Ed Martin weighed in on the telecast’s biggest surprise: CBS’ official announcement that this would be the last season for its long-running blue-chip drama “The Good Wife,” which made almost as much news as the commercials themselves. Scroll down for links that will take you directly to all of the columns mentioned here.
Hot from Hulu: Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Takes on P.C. Millennials
Warning: Politically correct or overly sensitive young people should be careful watching this video, as their heads might explode. It's from the hilarious Hulu and Funny or Die series "Triumph's Election Special 2016," in which the infamous dog with no filters has been reporting on the presidential primary in New Hampshire. He's hit his targets hard, especially Donald Trump and Jeb Bush. But he saved his most poisonous exchange for a group of college students at the University of New Hampshire. It may not be the funniest thing ever, but it's close.

A Possible New Path for Newspaper
For the better part of their storied history, IBM focused all of its energies against selling hardware. And for a good long time that’s all that was required as they were the only game in town. In the 1980’s that began to change. Competitive pressure on the personal computing front forced them to begin to cut distribution deals with national retailers -- a decision that would have at one time been considered heresy. Ensuing pricing pressure would force IBM to ultimately sell off their personal divisions and reconsider their overall go-to-market strategy.

Attention Award Shows: Live TV Musicals are Not Movies!
NBC did a sensational job with “The Wiz Live!” two months ago, by far the best of its live Broadway musical adaptations. Wonderful cast from top to bottom, dynamite direction and choreography and, despite not having a live audience in the studio to make the live performance more electric (the only major flaw, especially in the wake of “Grease Live!” on Fox), a triumph for all involved.
