Today Google updated the information on the COVID-19 small and medium-sized business ad credit that was originally announced at the end of March.

Who is an Eligible SMB?

Google states that a small or medium-sized business is pre-identified business type by them, and already have a global team that helps these customers daily.

The main eligibility requirement within that subset of advertisers is they must have spent on Google Ads:

So, if you hadn’t spent anything in 2020, you will be ineligible. Brand-new accounts as of 2020 will not be eligible.

Comcast and Cable Bypass…If You Can’t Beat Them, Join Them!

Posted in advertising with tags , , , , , on March 3, 2009 by gadler

Seems Comcast is taking a positive step in addressing  “cable bypass”,  or consumers bypassing cable tv for free online viewing.  A great deal of free mainsteam commercial video (TV, movies, etc.) is now available, and viewed, online. With the rapidly increasing number of internet viewers, it makes good sense for Comcast to move in establishing itself as a market leader. 

This will help aggressively target the younger demo (using cell phones v. land lines, and internet v. broadcast-cable tv or newspapers), and the mid-age demo who are tech-savvy and appreciating the need to reduce family expenses. Tough economy, you know!

With the availability of personalization and behavioral targeting, internet tv will prove an exceptional resource for advertisers to target their audience.

Comcast has reportedly hired Scott Schiller, the co-founder and first vice chairman of the Interactive Advertising Bureau, to oversee sales of 4 of its websites, including FanCast.com – a great internet-tv site.  Fancast could significantly enhance its value if/when it agrees to terms with ESPN to provide its ESPN 360 programming.

IAB is a respected internet industry resource, and luring one of its leaders is a coup.  Fingers are crossed – and congrats to Comcast.
