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...

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.

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...
