Re: [videoblogging] Rocketboom to Auction Advertising Time on Ebay?
- I'll bet that the Rocketboom downloads that week - March 6-10 - rise
significantly if not radically. By early March this is going to be on
the cover of Advertising Age and will be the biggest story in the
world of advertising. Whoever wins that bid is going to reap HUGE
benefit from the ancillary exposure. It will be a historical moment
in the history of media as well as advertising and marketing.
