News Flash! Omnicom Chief Says Move TV Budgets Online!

by Rick, from 3 weeks ago

Daryl Simm, Chief Executive Officer of Omnicom Group's media operations, told the Wall Street Journal, "We are counseling our clients to move between 10% to 25% of TV dollars to online video, depending on the target audience." Whoa! Really? Why in the world would this Omnicom Exec, whose media group controls over $54 Billion in global ad spend, want to shift dollars from the most powerful and trusted medium of all time to the wild world of online video?

I wonder if Mr. Simm and his teams have considered the Adtricity Data Report...

You've seen the sign in beer bars everywhere, right? Some people even fall for it, coming back the next day thinking beers on the house only to be told, "read the sign. It's tomorrow." The same thing has applied around mobile media and marketing for several years. How many pundits have we heard pronounce the arrival of mobile media and that marketers better start thinking about reaching the many millions of bulls-eye consumers on their beloved smart phones? The year comes and goes and the same mobile proponents are hoisting the same "MOBILE NOW!" sign. Yea, and free beer too, right? In just three days last week, Apple sold 10 million of the new iPhone 6, shattering all previous launches. It seems that Steve Jobs was wrong about why people would want the iPhone. In 2010, he said, "nobody would want to buy a phone with a big screen." How quickly the world changes! Sure, the iPhone 6 has a...
