#1 DIGITAL MEDIA MERCENARY TACTIC #1 = GO GLOBAL but remember that about 80 percent of advertising is local . According to Google 73% of all searches are related to local content in one way or another
DIGITAL MEDIA MERCENARY TACTIC #2 CONTENT IS KING but you sure better be entertaining! 66% of 16-24 year olds stating that they would like brands to entertain them. Being ‘entertaining’ apart from creating brand awareness, can even trigger sales in such young ages, with 71% of 16-18 year olds claiming. that they are more likely to purchase a brand that has tried to entertain them over one that hasn’t.
DIGITAL MEDIA MERCENARY TACTIC # 3: GREAT TO GO VIRAL but you better follow through to point of sale … to capture the real GOLD! Triple rainbow videos are fun but tie in a contest for sun in the fun in Hawaii and you may just have a winner for your brand!

DIGITAL MEDIA TACTIC #4 a coke can on a desk just won’t cut it anymore Coke & Mentos – been there and done that but it WAS fun…but think branded content creation – channels and feature style shorts & more: Branded Content Creation as the “purest” form of branded entertainment . Examples are starting to pop up including Royal Caribbean’s OCEAN VIEWS campaign and the Lexis LStudio online video channel where Friend’s Lisa Kudrow’s Series Web Therapy first viewed and even went to SHOWTIME as a pilot.

DIGITAL MEDIA MERCENARY TACTIC # 5 BUNDLING CONTENT AND HARDWARE STILL WORKS – look at the new GAMESTOP Tablet launch seems perfect of coupons and gamer videos doesn’t it?
#DIGITAL MEDIA TACTIC #6 EVEN SACRED RULES ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN… like movie windows last week Time Warner Cable launched theatrical movies on demand on the same day they are premiering in movie theatres – an amazing sacred cow that breaks the time honored MOVIE WINDOW – where movies can’t be shown anywhere except theatres for at least 90 or more recently 30 days. Time Warner Cable said Friday that is offering two well-reviewed new movies up for its customers to watch via video-on-demand the same day as they're released, as well as one in advance of its release in theaters. One of those, Melancholia , is already available, according to TWC. Users can buy the movie for $9.99, according to a company spokeswoman. Note the price of $9.99 now what if a brand came in and says I want to sponsor that movie and give it away or at least cut the price in ½
DIGITAL MEDIA MERCENARY TACTIC #7 GO WHERE THE VIEWERS ARE – user-generated content is great on YOUTUBE… but when you own the cameras at Xgames or you are behind the scenes at a sold out movie premiere YOU ARE THE WINDOW …custom-tain-ment is a phrase that I’ve used for 15 years…and if you can help me customize my entertainment, info-tainment and more for FREE – you got me and my peeps.
DIGITAL MEDIA MERCENARY TACTIC BONUS #8 – it’s all about human psychology not technology – the technology should be seamless and sure the viewer wants to be the rock star but celebrities NEVER go out of style. Hollywood is a style and a philosophy; not just a place on the map
