Nearly 60% of Consumers Surveyed Watch Online Video
According to The Kelsey Group Increased consumer response to online video is driving the development of cost-effective options for local and small-business advertisers. Princeton, NJ (May 24, 2007) -- In the latest wave of The Kelsey Group’s User View study, 59 percent of those surveyed claimed to watch online video, and more than half said they engage in some sort of response activity, such as visiting a Web site, going to a physical location or making a purchase. The study’s findings are highlighted in a new report by The Kelsey Group titled, “Online Video: A New Local Advertising Paradigm,” which credits the popularity of YouTube with bringing online video watching to mainstream audiences.   Click for details...


Broadcasting Bits: News Broadcasts Are Changing
NEWS.BROADCAST NEWS. THREE SIMPLE WORDS. And yet, just what do they mean? What's "news" today? And what are the vehicles by which we consume our news? Newspapers? Broadcast television? The Internet? The manner in which people watch news is clearly undergoing transformation. Broadcast television news viewers certainly have alternatives -- and Internet-based news programming may also provide more immediate access to news instead of waiting for that news to be prioritized (if appear at all) over "normal" broadcasting airwaves. Several technologies are combining to change the news gathering and viewing experience. Internet and mobile transmission protocols are enabling people to consume news content on a variety of devices. 3+ megapixel still and full-motion-video-capture cell phones are enabling anyone to acquire and transmit images. Web portals that foster and promote users to generate stories have provided the opportunity and outlet for anyone to be a provider of newsworthy content. Various terms are now applied to individuals who are not professional broadcast journalists or videographers. Whether the term is "citizen journalist," iReporter, or the worldwide community represented by Current TV, more people are acquiring images, more are editing stories, and more are making content for the world to consume. Some are struggling at this and others are thriving.     Click for details...


Video Search & Relevance: Important Bedfellows
As I wrote in last month’s column, video offers enormous opportunity for local SMBs (Small/Mid-sized Businesses) to market online more effectively. Admittedly, some folks differ with that point of view. For example, one commenter wrote that “although the technology exists for businesses to deploy video online, SMBs can’t compete with big brands on creative work.” This person argued that it will take more than lowering the barrier-to-entry cost of video for SMBs to compete with bigger brands. I beg to differ. Why? From what we have seen, successful online video advertising involves more than glitzy, expensively-produced commercials. Successful video ads offer relevant, informative, and authentic content about a brand, product, and service: In short, the type of content that search engines love. Also, SMBs have the mobility, which larger competitors may lack, to optimize and adjust their videos for greater relevance, ultimately making them even better for search engines.   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...


Making Sense Of Social Media Social media can be a bit daunting if you don't take a moment to make sense of it all. Each week there are more companies being funded and more mergers and acquisitions taking place as companies attempt to make sense of it all, but sometimes you want them to (quoting the Talking Heads) "Stop Making Sense" and just help us understand what's going on here. To understand the landscape you need to break social media down into its elemental pieces. As I can see it, social media as a blanket term is the one category that overlaps the most with other categories in emerging media, further making it difficult to sort through.   Click for details...

Clinton Outspent By Obama Online
HILLARY CLINTON'S CAMPAIGN CAME UNDER fire for spending extravagantly after disclosing it had dished out $25,000 for luxury rooms at the Bellagio in Las Vegas and $100,000 on party platters in Iowa, among other expenses last month. But in spending on online social media and advertising, Clinton was easily outstripped by Democratic rival Barack Obama. Not a big surprise, given that Obama has run the most effective online campaign among the 2008 presidential candidates. Of the $32 million he raised in January, for example, $28 million came from online donors.   Click for details...
