Advertising – the missing value proposition

Wednesday, 3 December 2008

I find it strange that advertising has become such a one sided proposition, or two sides of a triangle.

Go to every single advertising platform provider, ad network, ad server or video player provider site, and what you see is two value propositions;

1. For Publishers
2. For Advertisers


What’s the value proposition For Users?

How do these organisations bring benefit to peoples’ lives?

The best any of them can do is provide a privacy/cookie statement and opt-out option.

There has to be a better way.  Something that creates more value, for everyone, especially those that suffer the nuisance.

Some thoughts on improving the online ad experience for Video.

It’s actually pretty simple.

Don’t copy TV, a 50 year old technology and medium.

The web is different.

Why is everyone trying to make the web feel like TV?
