What Digital Does
No matter what your message is . . . digital technology gives you the opportunity to get it out to the world or a specific niche market. Social Media is a terrific marketing tool for video, so use it. A Digital Channel lets you control monetization so more money goes into your pocket.
Digital distributes your content, live and VOD. Use a strategy that maximizes your production expenditures and takes advantage of the newest technologies.
Interactive, live programming that takes viewers to the action or the information is what generates valuable views. Be clear. Be creative. Be accessible. Be everywhere.
