With Launch of many ad networks recently we have seen debate in blog sphere talking about how innovative models are being developed by advertisement networks to attract potential ad spend. We have heard about the famous Ad to SMS model where advertiser advertisement is linked to a query form where query is sent to advertiser by an SMS. This is to increase reach to SMB segment where they dont large investments in e-commerce as delivery channel and routing customer to their website does not turn into sale.
Though i surely appreciate the innovation happening but i m seriously concerned with most of these advertisement revenues are being cornered by fewer publishers( website owners). Now ad networks will surely jump to prove me wrong but reality is that its not their fault but lack of website owners which could benefit from this huge advertisement money spend coming in India.
This is the right time for content strong low on transaction model to appear in the market and take advantage by concentrating on building viewership. The models being generated should not be INDIA region specific but could be more INDIAN GROUP SPECIFIC to engage foreign markets. So if you were waiting for the time to start a niche content specific site and didnt know how you would manage the cost associated in running such sites wait no more as ” the time is right the time is bright“
