Re: Big Video
Good points!

I love watching videos and content like that, but you're right no one wants to see high prices. As long as the price is right the consumers will buy into it.

Re: Produce-market priciing?
Very gracious of you @JohnBarnes--that's why I suppose Transformation is always a journey, it is never a destination (to "adapt" to the old adage about Success).

Onward to August w/all the possibilities at hand :)

Re: Produce-market priciing?
mpouraryan,

Missed this excellent point of yours when you first made it; not only no regrets but few hopes, I think. When price becomes a conversation, you sell a lot of things (and buy a lot of things) just to find out what the other side really wants, and that means you treat every deal as provisional.

It does mean I wouldn't sign any long term contract for anything video anytime soon -- or maybe ever again.

I agree. I want to know how much it costs to watch something. We all want to view content but not at a high cost.

Companies should develop standards that allow content to adjust based on the size and type of device used - laptop, pc, tablet, smartphone, etc.

The problem is that senior management is making the decisions instead of including those who are designing the products and services. Wouldn't it be great if all companies developed a body that consisted of senior executives, developers, consumers and IT experts that all worked together to develop products and services for consumers. I can dream right. Sigh.

Re: Produce-market priciing?
JohnBarnes,

Taking your analogy just one step further.. Offering more choices can expand markets -- There's no perfect Pepsi.. or spaghetti sauce. Check out this Malcolm Gladwell talk:

Re: Produce-market priciing?
The key is not have any regrets once the decision is made and enough flexibility is built into the models to adapt and improvise.

Re: Produce-market priciing?
mpouraryan,

Yes, we always have to make the best guess on necessarily incomplete information. Complex frequently changed prices, though, are a way of obtaining more information, turning price into less of a fact and more of dialogue (with the attendant problem that that also makes it harder to hold the line on prices and can result in products/services no longer being offered).

Re: video data for advertising...
mhhf1ve,

For good or ill, there's some willingness to pay for being sold to -- otherwise phone solicitors wouldn't exist and nobody would bother putting a "no soliciting" sign on a shop door. The issue becomes an issue when paying for advertising starts to be a noticeable part of the budget for a lot of individuals or businesses (as it did at very low levels with fax ads, and of course with spam). I don't think we're there yet with streaming entertainment, and based on the facts that a television "half hour" is 22 minutes of programming, and product placement is a reliable source of revenue, there's probably some room for advertisers to encroach further.
