Should I choose a magazine ad or a video?
Artists are often bombarded with offers from magazines to purchase an advertisement to go alongside an editorial where they are featured. They will offer $1000-$10,000 for a static advertisement that will sit in a magazine on coffee tables for a month and then be shelved. Perhaps your ad will be seen by 10,000 people and perhaps half will get out of their armchairs and go to the computer to search for you. Perhaps they will look at more of your work and maybe contact you to ask more questions.
On the other hand, a 24-minute CIYL video of your work will cost between $5,000-$6,000. It will be automatically emailed to 8,000 CIYL members and sent to nearly 85,000 CIYL YouTube subscribers. It will then be shared by us to around seven other online platforms including Facebook and Instagram and Opera TV – a Smart TV app. Then, we will make it available for our media TV partners in 13 countries to show on TV stations around the globe! Millions of people around the world will have access to your show for ALL TIME!
Your show will not “be shelved” and forgotten. It will ALWAYS be available to be viewed.
Viewers will not have to move nor “leave their armchairs” to find you. They can link directly to your website from the show.
It really is a no-brainer.
VIDEO IS KING!
