YouTube Leads US Online Video Market with 28% Market Share
Nearly 75% of US internet users watched a video online (streaming or progressive downloads) in September, averaging three hours of video per person during the month, according to comScore’s Video Metrix. Google Sites, including YouTube, topped the rankings in both number of video viewers and videos viewed. Americans viewed more than 9 billion videos online in Sept., with Google Sites accounting for 2.6 billion videos viewed (28.3% share of videos), 2.5 billion of them at YouTube.com (27.6%):   Click for details...


Ad Auto Dollars Driving To Net
WORLDWIDE AUTOMOTIVE ADVERTISING REVENUES WILL stay at the $40 billion level for the next four years, according to a recent survey by a Princeton research group. But the Kelsey Group says there will be a shift among the media for those dollars. One of the few growth areas expected is the Internet, climbing from 5% in 2007 to 13% in 2011. Overall, the Internet will grow 27.5% over four years to $5.3 billion.   Click for details...

Report: Streaming Video to Reach $27 Billion
Streaming video and music accessed through the Internet and mobile devices will generate $27 billion in revenue by 2011, according to an Insight Research report. In what Insight president Robert Rosenberg calls a conservative prediction, the report also projects 32 percent annual compound growth for the streaming media market.     Click for details...


More Data in Support of Streaming Video
Google and AOL teamed up to commission a survey from TNS Media Intelligence, that shows favorable user and advertiser metrics for online video.   This is important to understand because it demonstrates the adoption and expectation of online video for people who are looking for more information about an advertiser's products and services. The trend is steadily moving more and more in favor of online video to help a business separate and differentiate themselves from their competitors in their marketplace. A few high-level data points are:   75% of users watch more online video than they did one year ago, and 52% expect to watch more over the next year. 78% feel online video ads offer as much or more capability than television to learn about an advertiser. 63% say they prefer video advertising in order to keep content free. The survey also measured response rates from online video, coming up with numbers similar to those in TKG's User View (results in past post).  Specifically 64% of the TNS study respondents claimed taking action after viewing online video. 44% went to a Web site, 33% to a search engine, 22% to a physical store, and 21% discussed with friends). This supports something we've said many times... online video combines the traditional strengths of video advertising (entertaining, informative, ability to elicit emotional response), with the direct response capabilities of the internet.   Copyright - The Kelsey group.

Six of Ten Consumers Have Watched Online Video Ads
Some 59% of online consumers surveyed said they have watched online video ads, and more than half of those viewers said they took action (e.g., visited a website, bought something) in response to the ad, according to The Kelsey Group. The findings are from the “Online Video: A New Local Advertising Paradigm” report, part of the ongoing User View study of consumer usage of traditional and online information sources to find and locate local businesses.   Click for details...


Streaming Video Goes to College
Video advocates must continually work with (sometimes reluctant) professors to understand the power of video and to find a simple way to deliver it to students who are using a variety of equipment, software, and internet connection speeds.   It was just a generation ago that a college professor stood in front of the room and talked at a group of students who took notes. Other tools consisted of a blackboard, chalk, and, perhaps if you were really high-tech, an overhead projector. Times have changed, and today’s college lecture halls are often wired for sound and video. The professor may project a PowerPoint presentation, slides under a microscope, or excerpts from a journal article. Some students may come to the lecture hall while others may participate in distance learning and watch a live stream or watch on-demand video of the lecture at their convenience.     Click for details...


The Business Face of Social Networking
You’ve got a Web site, a blog, and maybe even an RSS feed. Think you’re done with Web 2.0? Think again. Social networking sites—community-driven Web sites that aim to connect friends and colleagues into an interwoven fabric of a network—should be next up on your business agenda. The sites can help you find referrals, vet ideas, get advice and more—usually for free.   When it comes to social networking for business, we’re not referring to MySpace, FaceBook and other online popularity contests where teens and 20-somethings (plus 30-somethings who wish they were still 20-somethings) post embellished or embarrassing tidbits about themselves in the name of “connecting” with friends and strangers. (Though it doesn’t hurt to have a presence there, if that demographic is your target market).    Click for details...


Ad Spending On Social Networks Explodes In '08
Ad spending on online social networks worldwide will nearly double, to $2.2 billion in 2008 from $1.2 billion this year, according to an eMarketer study being released today. Most spending will come from the U.S., where social network advertising is projected to grow to $1.6 billion next year, from $920 million in 2007. MySpace and Facebook dominate U.S. social network advertising, claiming 70% of ad dollars. -     Click for details...

Class Act: The Future of Educational Video?
It's time digital media becomes an adjunct to writing for college students and instructors, and schools, colleges, and universities should provide basic audio and video production skills.   You’re watching an online video. The scene is dimly lit. There’s just a single harsh light on our subject’s face in extreme close-up. The sound, while understandable, is full of popped Ps and distorted peaks. Is this a sequel to the Blair Witch Project, or a video podcast for Political Science 101? Or is this the future of educational video? The do-it-yourself approach to video has taken the internet by storm, and more instructors and students are taking up the call to use digital media to enhance learning.   Click for details...
