I went on a little Twitter rant today about the entertainment industry and advertising. I thought I’d share.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. The current advertising system is a joke.— Devon Michael Dundee (@devondundee) July 13, 2012
Content providers, if your content is good enough, consumers will pay out of their pockets to keep it going.— Devon Michael Dundee (@devondundee) July 13, 2012
And advertisers, if you want people to buy your products, do something meaningful instead of trying to trick people into wanting something.— Devon Michael Dundee (@devondundee) July 13, 2012
If a company took the money they usually spend on advertising and donated it to cancer research, I’d buy the crap out of their product.— Devon Michael Dundee (@devondundee) July 13, 2012
I hope to write more on this subject in the future. I have many thoughts on how the relationship between the entertainment industry and viewers could be improved and how companies could broaden their appeal without stupid commercials and other types of advertisement, but that will have to wait for another day. Thanks for reading! If you have thoughts on the matter, feel free to share them with me.
