This is a pretty common question, and it seems to come up most often in regards to advertising on TV. Advertising on TV really only works when all of the networks are advertising the same product at the same time. The reality is that there is no way to control when a commercial will come on, and what you have to do is plan in advance to be flexible enough to accept when a commercial is on and what you will do in an attempt to keep your viewers watching.
The reality is that most channels use a very similar advertising model. The only difference is that each channel will use a different ad-style. For example, ABC uses a 60-second commercial break followed by a 30-second commercial. CBS will give you a 45-second commercial followed by a 30-second commercial. NBC gives you a 20-second commercial followed by a 30-second commercial. Fox gives you a 20-second commercial followed by a 30-second commercial.
For example, if you run a video on YouTube, you will see that when you scroll to the bottom of the video, the ad will be playing. If you watch this video, you’ll be watching YouTube’s ads, not the video’s content. If you watch the video on Facebook, you’ll be watching Facebook’s ads, not the video’s content.
We’re all used to commercial being the same, but the reason you see this on YouTube is because of Facebook. Facebook gives you a 30-second commercial followed by a 30-second commercial. When you watch this Facebook ad, youll see a 30-second commercial. On YouTube, you see a 20-second commercial followed by a 30-second Facebook commercial.
The problem is the content providers are being paid by the marketing channel. The marketing channel is going to tell the content provider what to make. The content provider is going to put up the content. I dont think that there is a way to avoid this. The content provider doesnt want you to see the content, even if you pay. The content provider doesnt want to give you the content, even if you pay.
On YouTube, there’s no way for the content provider to stop the marketing channel from putting up the content. The marketing channel is going to tell the content provider what to produce. The content provider is going to put up the content. I dont think there is an easy answer, but I do think that some sort of agreement among the participants involved in the marketing channel is necessary.
The best solution to this, I think, is to create an agreement among participants within the marketing channel that, for example, they cannot edit and approve what the content providers put up. This way, the content providers dont get to decide what goes up and they dont get to decide what the marketing channel will put up. Even if the marketing channel wants to put up anything that isnt allowed, they can always change it.
In marketing channels, there is no control, but there is trust. If you are able to trust that the rest of the participants in the marketing channel are not trying to manipulate you in some sort of negative way, then you know that there is nothing wrong with what they are putting up.
This is why you need a marketing channel. Because the marketing channels participants all have their own agendas. They might want to get you more money, get you more views, or get you to click on ads. You might be more interested in making your sales page more popular, or promoting your blog posts over at your affiliate blog.
Yes, there are people who want to get you to click on ads. That is a good thing. But there is a much more important reason why you need a marketing channel. As soon as you leave your marketing channel, you are no longer part of the marketing channel. So there is no way to get you to click on ads, unless you’re on the marketing channel.
