The Biggest Name in the Media Industry is the Last Name You’d Expect

They’re one of Apple’s primary partners, appearing at keynotes for new Apple product launches. They are slated to engage in 400,000 hours of streaming live video in 2014, and revenues for the year are estimated at $800 million. By 2016, their revenue projections will hit $1 billion. They’re among the most popular choices for content infrastructure, and one of the biggest media companies in the country. This company isn’t known as a media giant; they’re far more recognizable in other circles, though.   One of the biggest media companies in the industry right now is actually MLB Advanced Media, the tech company of Major League Baseball. How Major League Baseball Became a Media Industry Giant With their innovative approach to media, MLB’s tech division is now considered more of a media company than a baseball organization. MLB Advanced Media began with MLB.com, and was funded through an agreement with the thirty baseball clubs which comprised of $1 million each year over a four-year span. The estimated cost was $120 million, but MLB Advanced Media began turning a profit three years later. After investing less than $75 million, investors started to see ROI, and now those thirty owners are earning annual…

Bark & Co builds out the pooch lover’s market

NYC’s Bark & Co, the dog-lover’s ecommerce tech company, has just netted a cool $15 million in Series B led by Resolute.vc. Ecommerce analysts whose minds are turning to New York’s doggie treat subscription service BarkBox are, so to speak, barking up the right tree: Bark & Co came into being as a result of the astonishing success of “the box”. It seems as though canine lovers are a populous breed: so great has been the success of BarkBox that Bark & Co recently launched a new vet care-on-demand service, BarkCare, as well as a new content portal aptly named “The Bark Post”. Services for doggie lovers The latter attracted 1 million visits in December last year but by June that number had skyrocketed to 10.5 million. It doesn’t take a genius ecommerce analyst to figure out that there’s a big dog-loving market out there, and Bark & Co intend to corner it. In addition to BarkBox, BarkCare and the Bark Post, the company has also just introduced a new mobile app, BarkBuddy, which it describes as “Tinder for dogs.” Users simply swipe left or right to indicate whether or not they love the doggie images posted there. Thereupon, they‘re…

Roberts Communications: blending human insights with high tech knowledge

Young business development managers who have grown up in the digital age might know a good deal about the best technology for driving online advertising sales, but do they know about the unique human insights that appeal to prospective customers’ heads and hearts? A Rochester agency which began life when “digital” meant something you did with your metacarpals knows a thing or three about both. Unique human insights Roberts Communications began life in Manhattan in 1971, before moving upstate to Rochester and eventually settling on the High Falls site that has been its home since 1995. And for business development managers who like the notion of fusing high tech with human insights, the agency’s watchword is “CustomerThink”. If that’s left our business development manager feeling as baffled as she is intrigued, Roberts defines it as uncovering “unique human insights” to produce the advertising messages that’ll have the greatest impact because they’re based on a deep understanding of what goes on inside customers’ heads and hearts. Essentially, the agency directs its creative juices into linking the right consumer with the right product at the right moment. As anyone who’s held media jobs in internet advertising for any length of time will…

Online video advertising startup YuMe presents new Video Reach platform for agencies and TV brand advertisers

Last year, we reported on video ad company YuMe’s ambitions to deliver effective video ads across multiple devices in the age of screen fragmentation. Business development managers and others with media jobs in online advertising may remember that YuMe’s Senior VP of Marketing, Ed Haslam, was talking back then about how to hold viewer’s attention across multiple screens at a time when online video advertising was starting to explode. And now his firm has pulled a technological rabbit out of the hat to do just that, with the launch of a new brand named Video reach. A good year YuMe, as the more informed business development manager may be aware, has had a rather good time of it over the last year. It raised $65 million during its IPO last July, just as it planned to do after turning profitable and posting a net income of $6.3 million (a radical turnaround from the $11.1 million loss it made in 2012). It also managed to increase its gross margin from 38 percent to 46 percent over the same interval and its revenue for 2012 had grown by 70 percent on the previous year to reach $116.7 million. Figures like that tend…

Will Comcast Actually Buy Time Warner Cable or Will this be Charter’s Wake up Call?

Will Comcast Actually Buy Time Warner Cable or Will this be Charter's Wake up Call?

I don’t believe this deal will happen the way its currently structured and here’s why. First off, there are too many volatile variables in this deal in its current form;  the all stock price, softening equities market and other very motivated buyers in the market. I believe that this is only the first move in a larger plan. Time Warner Cable is utilizing a very smart strategy to maximize the sale price for the company; witness that Rob Marcus, the CEO, is a former Mergers and Acquisition attorney. So the battle for Time Warner Cable has come to an end, or has it? Yesterday Comcast announced a $45.2 billion dollar deal to purchase Time Warner Cable, representing a share purchase price of $158.82 per share. This is a significant increase from Charter Cable’s previous offers of $132.50 per share. But there is a big difference. Charter’s offer was substantially cash and Comcast’s is completely a stock deal. Also, we’re now talking about a major anti-trust review. Even with a sell off of 3 million subscribers Comcast would still control 30% of the industry nationwide. Given the lack of competition in each market this does not sound like a slam dunk. A year ago Comcast…
