New Attendee Orientation
Last year at the conference formerly known as BlogWorld, members of the NMX team had the honor and pleasure of spending most of our time in the New Media Lounge where we could talk with attendees, answer questions, take comments and even offer tips about getting the most out of one’s conference experience. This got us to thinking….what if we offered our brand new attendees the opportunity to have their questions answered ahead of time? What if we got to show them around a bit so they didn’t feel so ”new” when the conference starts?

Defining and Maximizing Conversions through Better Usability
A well designed website can not only look nice, but can actually drive a user to the action you want them to take. However when done poorly, it can also be a visitors biggest deterrent. While the definition of a conversion is different to a blogger than, say, an ecommerce site, the principles of design usability and information architecture still apply.

How To Compete Against Billion Dollar Media Empires And Win Engagement And Traffic
Many blogs are in niches where they must compete at some level with larger media outlets. Blogs which reside in the travel, food, fashion, sports, entertainment and politics niches have to compete for attention with newspapers, magazines, radio and television in addition to large well funded websites. Most bloggers enter the game with no staff, no budget and no mindshare. Knowing how to compete and find your space in a competitive marketplace with limited resources is something everyone in the world of new media must deal with.

Podcasting: From Hobby To Full-Time Career

When podcasting was a new thing, I created a show that lasted all of six shows and I hated every second. A few years later, I gave it another try...and now I look forward to every hour of the week I spend behind the microphone.

If you made your own false start in podcasting -- or if you've never even given it a shot to begin with -- my story might help you out. What lit the spark for me? It was the right people, the right expectations, the right amount of support, and the ongoing process of building a home studio that can respond to my goals and desires.

The Future of SEO – Social Meets Content

Whether you blog for business or personal use, you need a consistent stream of strategic content attracting people to it to be successful. Using SEO-based tactics effectively, a blog with excellent content will appear organically on major search engine queries, bringing an ideal audience to your site without spending major money in web advertisements. However, the process isn’t easy in a quickly evolving industry. SEO is one of the most change-heavy practices in the professional world, making it increasingly difficult for bloggers, online marketers, and content producers to keep up with shifting demands of search engine algorithms, and efficient keyword-phrases.

Having all the SEO, page views and followers in the world doesn't mean you know how to tell a story -- one of the few things that makes visitors come back. Writing without a point or an angle is a joke without a punchline. Nearly all great stories, from cave drawings through Susan Orlean’s latest work, follow some version of the same road map — and without it, most stories just wander. Learn the structure of storytelling, from a great lead to a solid angle to an ending that makes readers remember your name.

Using Comedy to Humanize Characters and Hook Listeners in Audio Fiction

Comedy is tough. Everybody knows this. But it’s also one of the most popular elements in fiction. If you can make listeners laugh, you can say almost anything and keep them coming back for more. Comedy can humanize characters. It can break through a listener’s prejudices and assumptions. But comedy is about more than just the words the characters say. Voice actor delivery and choice of music and sound effects all work together to achieve that ultimate goal – your listeners, wearing their earbuds, laughing out loud to the puzzled stares of onlookers.

World Premier: Inventing The Future with host Robert Tercek

Inventing the Future WebTV Show:

http://youtu.be/imxTj2MVgEE

Inventing the Future with Robert Tercek is about what’s next after what’s next. The series will launch live during New Media Expo in Las Vegas on January 8, 2013.

Media visionary, Robert Tercek, goes deep into the labs and garages of the world to show you where our universe and society are going. The program showcases the newest emerging trends in science, medicine, technology, media and entertainment with topics ranging from the robot car to the future social network.

Dubbed the “TV Anarchist” by The Industry Standard and named one of the “Digital Dozen” most influential players in new media by Variety, Tercek has been an acclaimed industry leader across every digital platform: MTV, OWN, Sony Pictures, satellite television, broadband, gaming and mobile networks. He is a voting member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Tercek and LiveLab collaborated to create a brand new live web TV show that’s as futuristic as its subject matter.

“Inventing the Future is not exactly a TV show,” said Robert Tercek. “Think of it more like an example of what comes next after TV. It’s a show that is designed, from the ground up, to incorporate social media, gaming and live interactive features that will give the audience a meaningful way to participate. A little futuristic, maybe? Perfect. That’s what the show is all about.”

“Every element of the show experience serves its namesake of invention,” said Barry Krause, CEO and founder of Suite Partners Inc. and its LiveLab Network. “For example, it’s not just the first news show with its own live band, we invented a new musical form: live composition sound design. The band, led by seven-time Grammy winning drummer, composer, and professor, Paul Wertico, is appropriately named Paul Wertico and What’s Next.”
