Broadcasting Bits: News Broadcasts Are Changing
NEWS.BROADCAST NEWS. THREE SIMPLE WORDS. And yet, just what do they mean? What's "news" today? And what are the vehicles by which we consume our news? Newspapers? Broadcast television? The Internet? The manner in which people watch news is clearly undergoing transformation. Broadcast television news viewers certainly have alternatives -- and Internet-based news programming may also provide more immediate access to news instead of waiting for that news to be prioritized (if appear at all) over "normal" broadcasting airwaves. Several technologies are combining to change the news gathering and viewing experience. Internet and mobile transmission protocols are enabling people to consume news content on a variety of devices. 3+ megapixel still and full-motion-video-capture cell phones are enabling anyone to acquire and transmit images. Web portals that foster and promote users to generate stories have provided the opportunity and outlet for anyone to be a provider of newsworthy content. Various terms are now applied to individuals who are not professional broadcast journalists or videographers. Whether the term is "citizen journalist," iReporter, or the worldwide community represented by Current TV, more people are acquiring images, more are editing stories, and more are making content for the world to consume. Some are struggling at this and others are thriving.     Click for details...


Video Search & Relevance: Important Bedfellows
As I wrote in last month’s column, video offers enormous opportunity for local SMBs (Small/Mid-sized Businesses) to market online more effectively. Admittedly, some folks differ with that point of view. For example, one commenter wrote that “although the technology exists for businesses to deploy video online, SMBs can’t compete with big brands on creative work.” This person argued that it will take more than lowering the barrier-to-entry cost of video for SMBs to compete with bigger brands. I beg to differ. Why? From what we have seen, successful online video advertising involves more than glitzy, expensively-produced commercials. Successful video ads offer relevant, informative, and authentic content about a brand, product, and service: In short, the type of content that search engines love. Also, SMBs have the mobility, which larger competitors may lack, to optimize and adjust their videos for greater relevance, ultimately making them even better for search engines.   Click for details...
