AdCritic Shuts Down

from the but...-but...-where-will-I-get-to-see-the-Superbowl-commercials? dept

We’ve discussed adcritic here before. It was definitely one of the more useful sites out there, but the big question was always whether or not they could ever find a business model. It turns out, in the end, they couldn’t figure out any business model, and so they’re out of money. No matter what business model they worked out, it would have been difficult, because the more people who use their site, the higher their costs go, since streaming video takes up so much bandwidth. It’s too bad they couldn’t come up with something valuable, though.

It’s really sad because I had emailed them a proposal for an “AD Critic” Video show that would have been able to receive sponsorship and make money for their site. This proposal was sent to them over six months ago. I never heard one response from them and I also called and left several messages. Oh well… The answers were right in front of them and they didn’t realize it.
