Getting Ready to Do a Video Campaign?

CalendarThe latest MediaPost “Video Insider” arrived in my In Box today with an interesting article about when to send out a video campaign for maximum exposure.

A friend in the advertising biz sent me an article from the New York Times titled “The Decline of Network TV.

The big three broadcast networks are not so big anymore – and major “stars” are jumping ship over to cable. The networks are having a hard time charging more for ad rates as their ratings sink. This, as the big cable networks (USA, TNT, TBS) get money from advertising AND subscription fees – which translates to more profit.

It certainly has created more work for the time buyers! But will it affect us, as talent, postively or negatively?
