Music Superstars Still Spend Big On Music Videos

The latest Taylor Swift video for Me! is a mini-million dollar movie. Insiders claim Swift’s latest video cost over a million. Is it worth to spend a million dollars on a music video today? For Swift, sure. She has the money to spend, but for other artists?It’s hard to make money off videos in the digital age because of streaming.  Unlike 20 years ago, at least today, videos can generate ad revenue whereas MTV paid nothing to artists and labels. Regardless, big budget videos were always a risky...

The Most Popular Shopping Site Among Teens Is... Amazon?

When it comes to marketing, teenagers are the ultimate get. Just look at the success of MTV (when they still played music), Abercrombie & Fitch (ten years ago) and Mean Girls. Basically, if marketers can get teens to latch on to their product, they're good to go for years to come — or at the very least, until the next generation comes along and finds something new to obsess over. But whilst a weekly trip to Target for the next installment of Twilight and a fresh box of Gushers always seemed to ...

12 Things That Never Happen On Spring Break
