How entertainment marketing has changed

Daily Blog: Discuss how entertainment marketing changed after television became popular. Make a list of at least 5 changes since 1945.

Television changed the world. It has been one of the biggest inventions of time. Every house you go into has at least one television and sometimes more than that. I know in my house there is a television in almost every room. Do you ever just sit at home watching T.V. and a commercial for Hardee's pops up and they are advertising a huge Baconator and all of a sudden you are craving one of those burgers? That's the whole point of commercials. They are wanting you to go out and buy their product. How do you think they advertised for things before the television became popular? Businesses probably had a lot better sales after the television arrived. Television provided company's advertising. More businesses probably started to be made because they knew that if they were able to make a commercial and get it on T.V. then it could become successful. Marketing grew all because of this invention. This was the beginning for commercials and commercials make a lot of money. Just to show a commercial on television costs a lot of money. You also have to think about all the money going into making the commercial.

  1. So true, so many times I thought I was hungry after watching a commercial about food! Thank goodness Hulu doesn't show a lot of food commercials.

Hulu, NHL, TNT

Daily blog post: "Two days after inking a partnership with the NHL to stream the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Hulu announced Friday a marketing push that will feature its logo splashed across TNT’s broadcast of the NBA Playoffs.
Hulu’s ad spots will begin airing this Sunday and will last through TNT’s First Round, Conference Semifinals and Western Conference Finals coverage of the NBA Playoffs, during which Hulu will serve as TNT’s presenting sponsor.
As part of the deal with Turner Sports, Hulu will produce exclusive branded content featuring NBA on TNT’s on-air talent, who will highlight the breadth of Hulu’s live TV service."
Question - How does Hulu benefit from this arrangement? How does the NHL benefit? How does TNT benefit?

Hulu, NHL, and TNT all get advertising.

Ticket prices

Daily blog: In recent years the prices charged for tickets have skyrocketed:
Major college football games, such as Alabama vs Texas A&M, can cost $770 each.
New York Yankee fans can pay as much as $500 per seat.
Tickets to see singer Taylor Swift in concert range from $258 to $1358 apiece.
Why do you think tickets for concerts and sporting events cost so much?

I think that tickets cost this much because it takes a lot of money to put on these shows and for everyone to get paid and make revenue then the prices have to be more expensive. The more you pay the better the show you will receive.

Worst/Least effective promotion

Blog: Look at the promotions featured in the article linked below. Which promotion do you think is the worst/least effective? Why? 

The promotion that was least effective would be the brittany spears one because she was an advocate for being a good parent but then was caught driving with her daughter on her lap which is not safe and illegal. She went back on everything she was trying to tell people to do. The Newark Bears made fun of the incident and many people got into the game free.
