Digital Content NewFronts a bid for dollars

NewFronts Make Bids for Big Marketing Dollars - NYTimes.com: "Last week marked the start of what is being called the Digital Content NewFronts, as new and new-ish faces like AOL, Google (with sibling YouTube), Hulu, Microsoft, Vevo and Yahoo schedule events amid those being held by regular upfront participants like E!, MTV, Oxygen, Scripps Networks Interactive and Syfy. The goal of the NewFronts, or new upfronts, is to encourage marketers and agencies to spend more money on digital ads, either by increasing budgets or shifting to online media some of the estimated $70 billion a year that is spent on television commercials.

Initially, the point of having a NewFront was “to beat a drum for change,” Mark Beeching, worldwide chief creative and strategy officer at Digitas, a digital agency owned by the Publicis Groupe, said at the Digitas NewFront on Thursday. “Now, it’s servicing a need.” The impetus has shifted from “looking for best practices,” he added, to “looking for opportunities.”"
