Indian Internet Advertising requires Publishers not Ad Networks

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

    I agree with your viewpoint.

    We are an Advertisement Publisher very suitable for Health Related Advertisements ( Can someone provide us leads for potential advertisers, who have budgets for Health Related Products & Services.

    I hope this will not be considered a commercial posting.

    Your views are not thorough on this matter. There are lot of factors other than publishers which are blocking the spread of indian online market boom.
    In India what we lack is good websites on specific themes. If we look at countries like USA or UK, they have many websites catering to the same topic and they have very active community involvement in shaping up a online community or a forum. In india, situation is different. We do not have specific websites catering to Indian needs. In addition to it, Indian Ad networks suffer from myopic view of advertisers. Presently, working in one of biggest Indian portals, I can tell that small time advertisers in India are not the same as they are in western countries. They are not very proactive when it comes to online marketing. You actually have to pull them out from their shells to make them see the potential of online market.

    Things are improving though but it will really take couple of years to see some visible change in the mindset of small businesses.

    I have read your viewpoint with interest.

    Running an Australian based business, I often have the need for:
    * Qualified Professional Candidates wanting to work in Australia, mainly in rail and civil engineering disciplines.

    In addition, we provide Professional Resume service to assist people find work internationally and also have a number of International candidates wanting to work in India. Furthermore, we are looking to partner international agencies to work with us.

    The question for me is what are the best avenues for advertising our services in India.
