Do you agree with Variety’s column? Are Faith-Based Audiences More Important Than Hollywood Admits?

Now that A+E Network’s Duck Dynasty/Phil Robertson clash has largely passed, I found Variety’s article by Larry Poland to be an excellent analysis of the gap between the Hollywood industry and the faith-based market, though I might have worded a few things differently. In my opinion, I don’t think that the core execs in the industry have invested the same effort into understanding the faith-based, Christian market as they have for other core values that define markets based on gender,…

FrontGate Media’s Offer of the Week – Project Inspired

“Project Inspired’s goal is to educate and inform young girls about everything they’re facing in the media.” Fox News Insider

“Project Inspired gives teen girls another option. It’s a way for Weider to tell them that they don’t need to abuse their bodies, dress more provocatively and behave immorally just because that’s what society promotes.” The Christian Post

She left her hometown of Salem, Oregon as a teenager to pursue a career in modeling and acting in Hollywood.

Clicks Are Just a Part of the Picture

I just reread an article from the Center for Media Research that ties in well with and expands on my previous blog on What should your advertising do? Media giants MediaMind and comScore have already reported that the advertising industry-wide decline in clickthrough rates appears to have plateaued, and that this all-important clickthrough metric illustrates only a small part of the overall return on the ad. In fact, comScore found that only 20% of conversions took place directly after clicking on an ad. The other 80% of conversions were post-impression conversions, results of the branding and awareness that were created by the ad.
