La industría del porno se alza contra la piratería

by Marcus Hurst

“Trabajamos duro para entreteneros y excitaros. Por favor muéstranos tu apoyo comprando nuestros productos”. Las estrellas del porno estadounidenses piden compasión y ayuda en estos momentos de ‘dificultad’ en una serie de spots. El “servicio que aportan a la sociedad” no se está viendo recompensado de manera justa. Las ventas de DVD han bajado un tercio en el último año. Los consumidores de estos productos migran a páginas gratuitas que copian el modelo YouTube. Las descargas y contrabando de vídeos pirateados que, según dicen, “infectan los ordenadores con spyware y malware”, están a la orden del día.

En una entrevista con Wired, Joanne Cachapero, representante de la Asociación de Entretenimiento para Adultos de EEUU, hace un llamamiento para que se tengan en cuenta las familias que viven de esta industria. “Lo que queremos comunicar con estos vídeos es que la piratería no sólo hace daño a grandes empresarios como Larry Flynt. También afecta a la gente que trabaja en producción, a los actores y los maquilladores”.

Why Marketers Need SEO

In an interview entitled Common Mistakes of Marketing Creatives and CEOs, Keith Reinhard (Chairman Emeritus of DDB) explains…

“When I was growing up in the industry, let me entertain you, let me make you smile, I’m very versatile, it was one way.”

Advertising was this way for decades, and what may have worked for the last 40 years clearly isn’t as effective these days. A shift like this comes as no surprise. Whether its advertising or just about anything, things change.
Reinhard goes on to describe the way things work now by suggesting…

Does your business have a good reason? No? Why not?

It doesn’t matter if it’s an employee or a vendor, everyone should have a solid reason for the things they do. Otherwise, quite frankly, what they’re doing is just a hobby. Why should be asked all the time. And clear and quick answers should always be given.

I’ve seen it happen a lot specifically amongst creatives. It seems that their minds tend to race faster than they can control the purpose of what they’re doing. It’s actually a great part of the creative process. You just need to make sure you take it to the next level before stopping. Internally we’re asking why all the time. Until we have an acceptable answer, we’re not done. [Más…] To me this is a true to test to see if someone is competent in what they do. Sure, you can wow me with great design, but telling me why it was done that way is what’s truly impressive. Launch a new website that has all the bells and whistles, but be clear on why I should use your product. Tell me I need a new message, but explain to me why the old one isn’t working. You tell me over and over that you’re the best, but I need to see why I should believe that.

The end of Flash: Another tool that can no longer do the job


Adobe Flash

It’s amazing how quickly things come and go in this age of technology. A killer app or product is nothing to take for granted, because in no time at all it could turn into a killed app.

Take Adobe Flash for example. It’s been years since we’ve taken this software seriously in our business. There was a day when Flash intros, web navigation and entire websites wow’d the world with their creativity. That hasn’t been the case for a number of years and yesterday’s “Thoughts on Flash” letter by Steve Jobs finally killed the three-year-old rumors as to why the iPhone and new Ipad don’t run Flash. It also effectively killed the platform altogether. Leer más “The end of Flash: Another tool that can no longer do the job”

Knowing and wanting are not the same thing

Have you ever heard of the mere exposure effect? It’s a psychological artifact first studied by Robert Zajonc. Professor Zajonc found that simply exposing experimental subjects to a picture or a piece of music briefly led those subjects to later rate it more positively than other, similar stimuli which they had not been shown earlier. [Más…]

This psychological effect is well known to advertisers. In fact, many advertisers have taken Zajonc’s “discovery” – that people express undue liking for things merely because they are familiar with them – and use it to rationalize blowing limited resources plastering their names and logos all over the place. Some even manage to piss off potential customers while wasting their money (e.g. advertisers who pollute the experience of a particular environment).
