DIGITAL MEDIA ISN’T MASS AP MEDIA FOR C HE Bud Caddell Strategist, Undercurrent
Alright everyone, budgets are tight. TV is out. Radio is out.
But we still need an ass-load of awareness!
How about a viral video?
Brilliant! Get right to it.

THE WEB WASN’T BUILT WITH COMMERCIAL BREAKS. IN FACT, THE WEB WASN’T BUILT FOR ADVERTISERS AT ALL.
UT HEY! HAT’S K! ON THE WEB, YOU MAY JUST BE ONE OF US, BUT YOU’RE THE ONE OF US WITH GOBS OF CASH TO DO REALL COOL SHIT. Y
BUT YOUR STRATEGY FOR THE WEB HAS TO INVOLVE MORE THAN DROPPING NEW COMMERCIALS*. *PEOPLE BARELY ENDURE YOU HERE.
AND EVEN THOUGH WE LOVE THIS BIG GUY, HITS LIKE HIS ARE EVEN MORE RARE THAN CLICKS ON YOUR BANNERS.
IT’S A FACT OF ONLINE LIFE: REAL SUCCESS IN THE DIGITAL SPACE REQUIRES A LONG TERM COMMITMENT OF YOUR TIME AND MONEY.
QUIT BUYING EYEBALLS, START EARNING WHOLE FANS. VIEWERS COME AND GO, BUT FANS FIGHT FOR YOUR SURVIVAL.
ET’S FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS, AND YOU TOO, CAN SUCK LESS HARD. AKE IT APPEN!
STOP MAKING THINGS JUST TO ACCRUE A TEMPORARY AUDIENCE.
START LISTENING THEN RESPONDING.
START REWARDING PARTICIPATION.
START TREATING THE WEB LIKE A SCIENCE LAB, BECAUSE IT IS ONE.
START COLLECTING RELATIONSHIPS.
IN 2009, I CHALLENGE YOU TO STOP USING THE WEB AS JUST ANOTHER DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL.
