Taxing Internet Ads Could Raise Lots of Money, but Doubts Persist

Article | February 25, 2020

Leading Maryland lawmakers seeking a way to help pay for a $4 billion, 10-year education plan came up with what they consider an innovative idea of where to get the cash: deep-pocketed internet companies. The Democratic proposal would tax Facebook and Google for every ad the companies run on the computer screens of Maryland residents visiting their sites. If passed, the plan would make the Old Line State the first in the nation to raise revenue by taxing online advertising. “Massive technology corporations have ballooned in size and influence over the last two decades,” wrote Maryland Senate President Bill Ferguson, a Democrat, in an email to Stateline. “This legislation starts to make sure that these corporations pay their fair share in contributing to building our state's core educational institutions.”

Digital Billboard Brand Marketing Budget & Strategy

Article | April 6, 2020

Starting first with the budget: What do you want to invest on a daily basis in your brand? My recommendation here in a local area is going to be $20 per day per brand channel. So what that means is, if you want to be on a digital billboard on a highway, that’s $20. If you want to be on Facebook for the day, that’s $20. On Instagram is $20. If you want to be on YouTube, that’s another $20. And so you can quickly get to where your budget is roughly anywhere from $60 to $100 a day, whether you’re on anywhere three to five different channels. I definitely recommend multi-channel, that’s going to build trust. Because if somebody sees you in all these different places, every time they see you, it’s just another element of trust (which would avoid questions like: “Is dropshipping legal?” or “Is dropshipping dead?”). You’re covering all areas. Digital billboards on the highway are extremely powerful because it makes you instantly think, like this business is on a little bit higher level than the other businesses.
