I would imagine that your visitors are interested in performance tuning. You could create monthly topics that cover different aspects of making the cars go faster.

As you mentioned, there could be an events related topic covered each month.

And of course the ever popular what's hot (product wise). You might even be able to sell small comercials to help off set the cost of the video production and distribution.

Another thought is to create a poll on the front page and ask people what they want.

Just some thoughts that come to mind after looking at your site.

Well I actually thought about the commercial spots thats why I broke it into 4 segments. As for the car tuning that's an idea I also thought about covering hot spots to drive.

If I were to sell commercials how long should they be. Plus to avoid buffering should I try to get them down to just a little graphic and some audio.

Have you tried converting a powerpoint to Windows Media before files done like that come out real small.

My suggestion is to just use a graphic insert with a voice over. Maybe add a music track to back the voice over. The length of the commercial could run from 15 seconds up to a 60 second spot. You could set your pricing based on time viewed i.e. a 15 second spot would run $500.00 (etc.). I would expect that your advertisers would like to know number of views per segment produced.

15 Second spots? Have you ever checked out the Windows Media Page and looked at movie trailers some of the companies that host the movie trailers do advertisments at the begining these spots run only 5 seconds.

Even at 5 seconds I find myself trying to skip them. I think I might be able to pull off 15 second spots. Graphic with voiceover I wonder how compressed I could get that and the quality.

Attention span

Big James,
There is some data to be found on the attention span of teenagers and adults (don't remember where, but try google) on the internet.

I think the highest group wasn't much over 15 seconds (TV) when I checked this out a few years back.

My 17 almost 18 year old son and all of his friends are really into the import street/track racing "fad", and they will surf this stuff for hours on end.

Without any data to back me up (other than watching my son and his friends) I would guess that <1 min would be a good medium. Of course I'm spoiled with 1.5 meg cable as a side note.

Hope this helps.

Dan
