What We Know About Oprah Winfrey
Oprah Winfrey is no stranger to effective marketing. If you are a fan of the Oprah Winfrey Show, you already know how she markets her shows, but what about Oprah herself?
Oprah has made it her life’s mission to help others by bringing awareness and light to whatever topic she feels like. As such, Oprah started as a social worker in the community. She worked with disadvantaged children, helping them with their homework and learning the importance of education. After realizing that there were many kids who needed her help, she decided to become a doctor.
Oprah then took a leave of absence to run her own television show. When she returned from her leave, she began to plan a brand new journey into the television business. However, it was not easy for her to take on the network television market, since at that time, people still viewed the Oprah Show on television.
Fortunately, Oprah began to get on television by partnering with a local network in Louisville, Kentucky. This allowed her to make her first appearance in front of her home audience in the Kentucky Television Market. This eventually led to her network acquisition and the creation of the Oprah Winfrey Network. The Oprah Winfrey Network now televises more than two hundred and thirty-five different channels.
However, the Oprah Winfrey Network did not end there. To help the network to reach its goal of reaching four million subscribers in order to achieve the network’s target audience, a second national program was created. This second program, titled the Oprah Winfrey Health Network, was available in all fifty states and in more than fifteen countries around the world.
By the end of 1998, the OprahWinfrey Health Network had more than two million subscribers in all of North America. In addition, the Oprah Winfrey Network has helped the network reaches its five million subscriber target in less than a year, due to the numerous television deals with cable companies that manufacture home-recording devices.
As well as the impact of her success on the network and the shows, Oprah Winfrey is a very interesting woman, full of energy and passion. Her passion has led her to many ideas for people to become involved in. In fact, a few years ago, she launched a foundation to help others. One of her most notable ideas was the Oprah Winfrey Academy of Urban Education, which she founded to give all students a chance to get an education through her personal experience.
