Media Share Shifts Continue
In the New York Times today, an article titled No More Same-Old lays out the challenges facing advertisers and advertising agencies in today��s ��connected�� and ever changing world.

According to Universal-McCann during the last 5 years, only three media categories have increased their overall ad budget share �� direct mail, cable TV and the Internet. Share losses were felt by the ��big-four�� traditional categories �� newspapers, broadcast TV, radio and magazines. And though left out of the analysis, Yellow Pages too lost share during the last 5 years. More evidence that media that can target audiences more precisely �� closer to where those audiences make buying decisions �� is on the rise. Yellow Pages can make this claim too �� so why hasn��t it gained share in the last 5 years? It maybe that Yellow Pages lost its way when instead of focusing on the value proposition �� Yellow Pages usually offers a great ROI - publishers and their legions of sales people began pushing color, double trucks, cover, spine, tip-on and other high-revenue items.

Certain Internet advertising formulas may also risk long-term value proposition erosion in favor of short term revenue maximization. Auction models and pay for placement models, while positioned as ��democratic�� and the ��voice of the market��, provide maximum performance, by definition, to only a finite number of advertisers. While inventory constraints help bid ad prices up, the percentage of advertisers willing to name their own price increases, however, is undoubtedly limited; historically, SMEs have been trained to negotiate rate cards down.

They are being trained everyday to negotiate rates cards lower and lower . . . if they wait long enough they'll get a really good deal since the demand for their ad budgets increases everyday.
