Let’s try it this way
Posted May 22, 2013on:
You may have heard the saying, “It’s cheaper and quicker to keep a customer than it is to find a new one.”
This saying can easily be used to explain our take on Prospect Park and their need for more viewers for AMC and OLTL.
These shows combined cost around $40 million for one year.
It takes a lot of viewers to cover that cost and make this a profitable endeavor for PP.
We all know that there are a lot of fans out there that still don’t realize the shows are back and/or are clueless as to how to view them.
We as fans do need to help find these fans but that will take time and some considerable effort.
But we would all like an increase in the number of episodes we see each week and don’t really want to wait for a long time to make that a possibility.
This is where making sure fans are “viewing” both AMC and OLTL comes into play.
The data PP has is showing that the majority of the viewers are watching one or the other.
This creates an easy opportunity to quickly increase those viewership numbers IF each fan was doing their part.
We know that some fans are not interested in watching the “other show” and only are interested in AMC or OLTL.
That is fine but what we need is every fan that is watching on Hulu to let the other show play out to be counted.
Really there is no valid excuse to not do this.
Watch the show you want and then once done start the other show and walk away for 30 minutes.
That’s it. Nobody is asking you to become a fan.
We just need to stand together so that we keep these shows alive and give them a chance to grow.
Think about your fellow soap savers.
Together we sent emails, letters, faxes, made phone calls, etc.
We did it united to bring back both shows. We got them back.
They are in a deal where financially they are tied to each other.
This means we all need to stay united to keep our shows going.
If you watch via iTunes we understand that you aren’t going to buy a show you are not interested in.
But for those of you who utilize Hulu please help the genre, help your fellow fans,
and help the 200+ people who now have jobs because of these shows continue on.
If most fans stand selfish and only do for themselves then we will have nobody else to blame if the shows get cancelled.
When ABC pulled the plug on the shows the fans didn’t have any ability to impact that decision.
Right now the fans control quite a bit of their destiny.
If we rally and watch both shows and help get the word out to other fans then we will have our shows living on for the foreseeable future.
We kept telling ABC, Prospect Park, the media, advertisers, etc that these shows had a huge fanbase.
Now is our time to prove that true.
So if you have NOT been watching both shows please go pull up the one you don’t watch on Hulu and start letting those episodes play.
Turn off your speakers and do something else but you can go about your day knowing that you are truly doing all you can do.
