VCU says:
Hmmm, looks like do it youself television advertising, fascinating. You can search from a library of thousands of advertisements by industry and keyword. Each advertisement you can view online and choose the one you like best. This advertisement can be modified by you and tailored to fit your needs, upload an image to add, text etc.

Create your own schedule. Where you want it to run, even down to the zip code, and target by industry. Define your budget, determine how long you want the advertisement to run, create a campaign, and your done.

The targeting capability is impressive, being able to target by industry, location and searching both by demograhics is huge. Maybe they will use some of the $40 Million to obtain behavioral data? We cannot see anything else missing. Keep an eye on this one, we will.
