Broadcast-television ratings have dropped sharply this season. And that, combined with the weak economy and competition from other media, augurs badly for the spring ad-sales market, ad buyers and analysts say.
More TV ad dollars are expected to move to cable channels, a shift that has accelerated in the past couple of years. But both broadcast and cable television are facing more intense competition from online media, including Web video outlets.
Ratings declines have some marketers rethinking their ad-buying strategies, ad buyers said. Some are expected to shift money to cable channels, they said. While ratings have declined at some cable channels, ad prices on cable tend to be lower than on broadcast TV, according to ad buyers. In some cases, the Web could take a share of those dollars. “Advertisers have seen a significant shortage of ratings, and some are willing to take some money and move it online,” said John Muszynski, chief investment officer at ad company Publicis Groupe.

“We like to say it’s easy being green with a little help, a little education, a little support and that sort of thing, it becomes easier and easier. That’s what we do. We come in and we help people through education and through advice, through hands-on support and services consulting with businesses and in the community and with families. I visit schools and other organizations to provide hands-on presentations where the kids get to experience what the environment and sustainable living is all about. The kids actually remember so much more when they get to experience something and for them to learn a topic and actually make realizations about how they impact the environment, can actually change their entire perspective. My role with the organization is to essentially help residents, people in their homes green their homes whatever that looks like for them. It’s a very holistic and personalized look at the home. We are able to tailor every visit to whatever the needs of the homeowner are. I think certainly the main areas are chemical use in the home and saving on utility bills. I think those are the primary concerns when we are going in to a home for the first time. I work on the Green Workplace Program. I’m a Green Workplace Consultant. I help businesses to reduce their environmental impact. Sometimes they don’t really know what their goals are; they just say, “Green our office,” and so we have to come in and help them refine their goals. Is it more around waste-related or is it more energy-related. We’re encouraging businesses to reduce their waste, recycle their waste. I feel like I’m making a difference in the Alberta Recycling climate, Calgarians are really open to the message. They’re a city where we really appreciate the beautiful environment that we have. I think the city of Calgary has set some excellent sustainability goals for the community and people are from all sectors are interested in being part of reaching those goals. I think a lot of people, they want to make change and they just don’t know where to start. That’s where we come in. www.greencalgary.org. People often need a helping hand and that friendly support. That’s what we’re here to do. I think it makes a big difference.”

BizBOXTV: Calgary Video Marketing packs some punch.
If you don’t have high-quality online videos to demonstrate your products or to communicate company news, you’re missing out.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then what’s the price of a video? The media landscape we are surrounded by today is dominated by television and the internet, so we are naturally disposed and conditioned to visual forms of mass and broadcast media. Our visual sense is what we rely on most readily to make judgments, and process and gather information. Ads, graphics and graphs can relay information, numbers and statistics, but video captures the imagination and transmits large amounts of information in a short period of time. If you think about it, these are the same goals any business has for their advertisements or presentations.
How a Business Can Use Calgary Marketing Video
The use of video can have many applications for a business: from advertising and marketing videos, to presentations for business partners and investors, to training videos or promotional videos. What BizBOXTV Calgary Marketing Video adds that print media doesn’t is the human element. It adds character, a face and a voice to the information.
In terms of business deals or promoting your company, a corporate video shows that you mean business: it shows that you are up to speed with current media and technology trends, it shows that you are willing to consider alternative or non-traditional avenues for marketing or communication, and it shows that you are willing to put money into growing your business. Corporate videos can also be used as a personal and honest look into the inner-workings of your company, giving customers or potential business partners the feel of transparency that allows them to trust you. Aspects of your business that would be simply conceptual in a presentation can be shown exactly as they are with a video walk-through of your company.
Your Calgary Marketing Video on the Internet
Like I said before, we live in a world dominated by visual media, and regardless of the scenario a person would probably be much more willing to watch a 30 second video rather than read a 500 word document. With the rise of an internet community that shares and communicates ideas, videos and news, one of the most powerful tools currently en vogue for spreading a message is the viral video. The rise of the viral video has been exponential with websites (like YouTube) and television programs now dedicated to spreading and sharing them. They spread like an epidemic from person to person – providing an incredibly powerful and personal word-of-mouth platform for sharing your video and your message.
Another revolutionary trait of video is that it can be viewed at any time. While commercials only run at specific intervals, and banners or billboards can only be seen by passers-by, viral videos, or even videos uploaded onto your company website, can be viewed at anytime anywhere from New York to California to Washington, or even across the globe. For the fraction of the cost of other types of marketing corporate videos can reach millions of people in a fun and personal way.
For a marketing video to gain momentum and popularity it has to be creative and polished. For these reasons I would suggest consulting a professional video production company, rather than attempting to make a video on your own. A crude, home-made video could have a negative effect on your business. A corporate video production company can help you craft and articulate the exact message you want to present, and make sure the video is eye-catching and memorable. In a crucial time where we are gravitating away from print media and towards the internet, it is important to keep your company on the cutting edge. A corporate video could be the perfect way to connect with your customers or business partners, show them who you are and what you have to offer.
