South Park does online promotion and revenue

by Matt @ Kurb on June 13, 2008

“We thought we could make money on the Internet, but while the Internet is new and exciting for creative people, it hasn’t matured as a distribution mechanism to the extent that one should trade real and immediate opportunities for income for the promise of future online revenue. It will be a few years before digital distribution of media on the Internet can be monetized to an extent that necessitates content producers forego their fair value and more traditional media.”
This is essentially true and I wouldn’t argue with it.

BUT there is already a small group of people who are making a 6 figure yearly income just from blogging!

It proves content producers can sit at home and earn a living. It’s not impossible.

But this can take literally years of work. I know, Kurb’s turning 4 later this year!

And although South Park suggests it take years before the digital economy has matured enough to support a large number of content producers, my honest feeling is that artists I’m working with now are building themselves into position that will favour them to be making 5 figure incomes from online revenue sources by next year.

Our new music marketing forum is launching soon. It’s going to be a private forum strictly limited in membership where you’ll be given detailed instructions on each process involved in building your online entertainment empire!

And full premium clientele will also have access to staff who will carry out both day to day mundane tasks, support you directly in implementing aspects of your online promotion, and carry out specialized tasks such as graphic and web design.

Had an enlightened moment in regards to Twitter also.

Posting to a 140 character limit is the challenge of microblogging. If you find you have the ability to create value or stimulate conversation through a 140 character post, you could get a lot of leverage from twitter by cutting through the noise with some thoughtful statements.

For someone who isn’t a great written communicator this could a lot less challenging than standard blogging.

But on the other hand for me, for whom written communication is a cornerstone of my marketing, it’s a chance to tone down my rambling for a different audience who don’t really want to delve quite so deeply into the realms of online promotion.
