Default Could the financial meltdown be the kick-start that online video sites need?

In every downturn, there are opportunities for growth in particular areas. Fortunately for small web publishers - and unfortunately for larger telcos and cable TV providers - it seems that one of the bright spots might be online video advertising.

It goes without saying that there is talk that the growth in online advertising will slow down in general. Nevertheless, with households looking to cut back in their spending on non-essential services, it could be that cable TV subscriptions are one of the first luxuries to get the axe. Where this benefits the online ad market is that a large number of network and cable TV programs are now available to view online; through legitimate streaming video services.

Those who operate these platforms, supporting websites (such as entertainment "fansites", educational resources, online TV directories and review sites), video advertising services and the like could benefit from the shift of eyeballs online.

Check out this Wall Street Journal article for more on this potentially seismic movement away from TV and towards online video:

For those of you operating within the entertainment and edutainment space, or whose sites serve up video content to the masses, this could be a great opportunity.

Hi wilsonshell,

Welcome to Geek/Talk.

I'm not quite sure what you mean or how this relates to the online video market. Can you please clarify?

Thanks,

Absolutely agreed with Czar s comments/content, because of the downtrend experience in the Wall street from about 2 quarters, the ad spend would be diminishing and corporates would be looking forward for cost effective ways of advertising and reaching the target audience, so the online video sites may get an upper hand and priority for the same.

I think it represents a tremendous opportunity for those who want to advertise web based services.

In my mind.........which has more value?

A commercial that runs for a few cycles on a TV station..........or an amateur advertising video that can last forever on the internet and can be marketed endlessly?

Of course.....pros and cons exist......but I think these will be hammered out by intelligent, driven, entrepreneur types.
