Is Mark Cuban right? Is a publisher’s decision to run a “low-quality” ad a brand killer? In other words, if you’re a TV station, and you run penis pill ads, are you killing your brand through this association? All for the quick buck?
Very interesting questions, and can go on multiple levels of media publishing, not just television.
I would argue that this is really about expectations. I believe that television viewers “expect” to see penis pill ads and the like at 2am. Therefore, they’re ok with it.
What about the web? What about print? Radio?
What about your blog?
Ask yourself… What do your readers/listeners/viewers EXPECT from you?
Deviate from that expectation, and your brand will suffer.
