Vevo takes over YouTube
Vevo, the spinoff of YouTube meant for professional music videos, has finally launched—with the usual sputter that comes with highly-anticipated website debuts. The site, which has been in the works since at least March of this year , is aimed at allowing the major record labels to put their stuff online on their own sanitized part of YouTube, outside the user-generated YouTube ghetto. Vevo videos are embeddable, though there doesn’t seem to be anyway for users to participate or mash them up beyond leaving a comment. Vevo is meant to provide an online clearinghouse for label-approved music videos–the kind of professionally shot videos that often cost half a million dollars or more and used to form the backbone of MTV. Vevo will be the exclusive distributor of these videos, and will handle all licensing and ad sales, although partner Google is handling the actual video hosting and streaming.
Vevo was just launched, but it seems they didn’t do their capacity planning very well as the site is very unstable. It is currently hard to connect to the Vevo site and when you manage to connect the pages load very slow and most videos won’t play. Vevo is not available in all countries. Most music videos were viewable by all users at Youtube but Vevo locks out everyone who is not coming from the United States. Vevo, the Recorded Music Industries answer to its business woes, launched last night with a star-studded party in Manhattan. It’s a new business model powered by YouTube.
VEVO sells all the ads for the videos, and while watching videos I?ve seen everything from pre-roll ads to the next-to-video ads YouTube users are used to. Since the content is all so high-grade, VEVO can charge more for ads, meaning more money for labels, VEVO, and YouTube (who?s hosting, and showing, nearly all the videos). Vevo lets the labels take a small piece of the pie back into their pockets. I actually think this is less evil then the old model of shutting down unauthorized videos on youtube and not re-posting them anywhere. VEVO is the leading innovative online premium music and entertainment service for consumers, advertisers and content owners that blends the very best in musical content with cutting-edge video technology and a thriving user community powered by YouTube. The content is made available on YouTube through a VEVO-branded channel, on VEVO.com (the service’s marquee destination site) and through a VEVO-branded embedded player.
Vevo’s experience stinks and YouTube should be getting slammed in the media for all the problems they have. But I think the media loves YouTube and does not want to make them mad. Vevo will take a similar tack to Hulu in offering “premium music video content.”. VEVO will be an EPIC failure because users like myself will not support it plain and simple. UMG has gone from the coolest music label in the world to horrible almost overnight.
Vevo President and CEO Rio Caraeff says the company is looking to hire about 35 people to do Vevo jobs. He says they’re hiring for positions including ad sales, engineering, accounting, music programming and others. Vevo is an immense pain in the rear especially for those of us looking for videos for project use, especially official Music videos. People go online so they don’t have to worry about advertisements, and commercials, if that’s where Youtube is headed I want no part in it. Vevo simply says “we have created a unique partnership. Vevo ony works if you live in the USA.
What is Tumblr?
Tumblr is described as “a blogging platform that allows users to post text, images, video, links, quotes, and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. Users are able to “follow” other users and see their posts together on their dashboard. Tumblr, which is free for users, with plans to expand the audience and fine-tune the blogging platform. Tumblr lets me do a sort of stream of consciousness thing that I find totally simple.
I’ve been getting addicted to Tumblr. Tumblr helps you make that personal connection with your audience. Tumblr has drawn in features but offers a more social blog as well as unique tumblr themes. Tumblr has prided itself on being one of the most simple and easy ways to blog, and these new features only enhance that, and they should be proud – IT ROCKS. While the service is focused on shorter, microblog-type posts and for sharing found items from the Web, there are plenty of users who use Tumblr as their main platform for blogging.
Tumblr is one of the simplest ways to make your own space online and also it is a simple way to make your own portfolio. TumblrMaps is a new service that generates an XML sitemap for your Tumblr blog. An XML sitemap, when submitted to a search engine, makes it very easy for the search engine to navigate through your website and thus index your website in a better way. Tumblr.com is a great mini-blogging tool with some wonderful features for everyone, except the marketing people. If you have one or few blogs on Tumblr and intend to run a marketing campaign of your brand or service. Tumblr has made it easy to post a small range of content types. It’s much more stream of consciousness than Twitter because of the content types supported, Tumblr is better than Twitter but it’s not a replacement. Tumblr fits into this category, its simplicity is what makes it a must for all. Really, go and have a look, it blew me away at how great it was. Tumblr reminds an older site Pownce, which was my favourite years ago. Unlike Pownce, Tumblr has no tool to promote the links.
Tumblr is currently a free service, but its something I would have paid for it in a heartbeat if they offered a way for me to give them cash. If tomorrow they offered a premium plan, would I pay for it knowing the support track record? Tumblr is the easiest way to express yourself online. The form of expression on Tumblr is called a tumblelog, which (as defined by Wikipedia ) is “a variation of a blog that favors short-form, mixed-media posts.” .Tumblelogging exists to express a more ethereal identity. Tumblr also works well for people who need blogging to be simple and easy.
Tumblr links with Vimeo to host video content. While this is useful if you ether have no existing video hosting or already have a Vimeo account, it is not as good for those of us who use a different service such as YouTube . Tumblr has spark capital and union square ventures as their investors. Marco Arment, the technical lead at Tumblr is a perfect balance of technical chops, getting stuff done and doing it right. Tumblr offers a rich interface that makes posting content very easy. This free blogging system appeals to many since most people that blog don’t post long articles, but rather short snippets and blurbs of thought or things they find online.
TumblrMap automatically generates a sitemap containing all the articles published on your Tumbr blog. Users will now have the ability to submit a sitemap to Google directly from TumblrMap?s interface. Tumblr allows you a string of of media ranging links, text to videos and pictures and a lot of other tumblelog options. There’s no much fuss to deal, its always easy with Tumblr. Tumblr blogs can have SEO power too. If you install the Tumblr XML sitemap plugin and pay attention to your Post titles and keyword usage, the search engines will begin directing traffic to your Tumblr account.
Targeted email marketing is the key to any email marketing campaign and is no comparison to an ordinary email blasts to general recipients.

As long as you know how to go about it you are going to see a improvement in your business. Targeted email marketing campaigns take a little bit of time and patience to achieve success. Many people make the mistake of thinking that their email campaigns consists primarily of simply sending out emails .

Amazon Niche Store
Amazon has a great affiliate program and makes it easy to take advantage of their API to create your own Amazon Niche Stores. Up until now there has not been a truly easy way to create an Amazon Niche Store. I recently had the opportunity to test out a new WordPress Plugin that allows you to create a Niche Amazon store that is really a true store. So far the only options available that we found are CRAP!!! This new WordPress Plugin allows you to have a full blown Amazon Niche Store literally within minutes. I suggest using a WordPress Hosting company to get your WordPress site setup, and then second just simply enable the plugin. The next few steps are just configuring the plugin to have your information and the products you want the store to have. But best of all the plugin is free!
The Amazon Niche Store WordPress Plugin will be available to the public and for free to everyone.
Amazon Associates Program
Amazon’s Associate Program is perhaps one of the most popular ones for bloggers because it is pretty simple to use and has such a wide range of products in their system ranging from books, to electronics, to jewelry, to CDs and DVDs etc. It’s also great because there are many tools that can be used to integrate it into your blog including WordPress Plug ins. Some bloggers even integrate Amazon stores into their blogs (something I need to get set up).
Another beauty of the Amazon program is the variety of ways that they give you to link to their products. Even using just their basic tools on the Associates page you have the option to link to products using text links, pictures, buttons and a variety of keyword triggered techniques.
I personally use Amazon’s program quite a bit on some of my blogs and find it quite effective. While my earnings from Amazon are far less than my Adsense income it’s a nice bonus each quarter (they pay every three months). This quarter (just over half way) my total is just over $900 (USD).
Amazon’s affiliate program pays out in either gift vouchers (to be spent in the store), cheque (check) or direct deposit (if you’re in the US).
Amazon Associates Program Pros:
- massive array of products to choose from
- reliable payment system
- options for different payment types
- reasonably easy to use
- variety of linking tools
- Amazon are fairly well regarded and trusted by consumers
Amazon Associates Program Cons:
- only quarterly payments (many other programs are monthly)
- commissions can be lower than some other programs (although they have an incentive/bonus program that increases the % when you sell certain targets)
- incentive program can be a little complicated to understand
- some of their buttons and link methods are a little dated
- not great on some products internationally (ie while Amazon will send books and some products internationally some of the bigger ticket items will not be sent overseas. So if you have a non US readership you might have to also sign up for other Amazon affiliate programs (ie they also have a UK, Canadian, Japanese one etc this can get a little messy)).
I’ll share more tips to help maximise Amazon earnings later in this series – but in the mean time I’m sure others have a variety of experiences with Amazon and can shed some light on it as a program for us. Share your thoughts on the Amazon Affiliate program in comments below.
Tumblr is the new Twitter
Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you have heard of and or used Twitter. Twitter has become known for its ability get short messegaes to your followers quickly. Twitter has also been a huge Gold Mine for marketeers allowing us to monitor all the trends that are happening and what people are thinking while it is happening. But Twitter has also been known to attract a lot of Spammers, so Twitter has made some efforts to stop this and to attack the Spammers unfortunately they havnt done a very good job. So now we have a new contender who is shaking things up and will most likely take over Twitters market-share. The new company is called: Tumblr
Tumblr has solved many of the problems that Twitter wasn’t able to, and unlike Twitter, Tumblr is not known for temporary outages. Tumblr also allows you to customize Everything! Tumblr lets you effortlessly share anything. Post text, photos, quotes, links, music, and videos, from your browser, phone, desktop, email, or wherever you happen to be. You can customize everything, from colors, to your theme’s HTML.
Tumblr is a blogging platform that allows users to post text, images, video, links, quotes, and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. Users are able to “follow” other users and see their posts together on their dashboard. Users can like or reblog other blogs on the site. The service emphasizes customizability and ease of use.
Tumblr’s emphasis is on customizability and ease of use, with a relatively simple sign-up process. The “like” button, which lets one user tell another that they like his or her content, and the “reblog” button, which easily reposts content from one tumblelog onto another, provide positive feedback that has given Tumblr an 85% retention rate, compared with 40% for Twitter.
Users “follow” other tumblelogs, much like on Twitter, and their updates appear in one stream on the Dashboard. This is the interface where users can like and reblog posts, as well as the buttons to add content to their own tumblelog. Other tumblelogs the user maintains appear on the right, along with statistics like tumblarity.
There are many forms of content that can be added to the user’s own tumblelog: there is the “Text” post, which is a simple self-explanatory form of post, which may be composed using a Text Editor, or HTML, depending on the user’s preference (A basic knowledge of HTML is helpful when using the site in more advanced ways). As of mid-2009, it has been possible to upload images from your computer into a “Text” post, which was not the case originally; there is the “Photo” post, where the user can upload from their own computer an image (many file formats are applicable), or can embed from another site using the URL of that image. In a left-to-right fashion on the interface, the next category of post is “Quote” where one inserts a body of text into a box, and then submits a source – together these appear on the dashboard in a suitable manner. Next, the “Link” post, where one enters a body of text into one field, and a URL in a separate field (and an optional caption), and the body of text appears on its own as a hyperlink – a convenient way of avoiding the need for HTML anchors. Following this, there is a “Chat” post which automatically inserts the code required to copy conversations from Instant Messaging programs etc. into a similar style. Next, we have the “Audio” post, where one can upload MP3s (up to 10MB in size), or host audio files from other sites. However, the user may only upload one audio file per day. After this, there is the “Video” post, where the user can embed video files from sites such as YouTube and any site that hosts files (e.g. Photobucket), or upload to Tumblr by logging into Vimeo – who are working together with Tumblr to provide this free service.
Tumblr is a site that offers a more expressive blogging service. Instead of the usual, long worded text posts and similar templates, you can structure your blog in any way you want. The main focus is the creativity that allows you to choose how you may want to convey everything, from background to picture alignment. This will allow people to write rapid fire posts and throw it on their Tumblr blogs. As well, people may notice that successful Tumblr blogs are always unique in their own way- whether the site style is retro, or the text has an insane font and colour.
Created in 2006 in New York, Tumblr has been getting a steady flow of increasing users every day since August 2008, as well as more visitors. Although slightly less than half of users are American, Tumblr is used throughout the entire world. However, compared to other blog sites, Tumblr has a slightly slower growth rate.
The main difference with Tumblr is that freedom of blog styling is enormous. You can set-up the blog in any way you see fit, and customize to your preference. Also, the ease of changing is very simple, and only takes a few clicks of the mouse. Speed, however, is the main point of difference. Some blogs can take you a while to pst, but on Tumblr it’s extremely more convenient and fast to do it, due to the fact that most blogs don’t even post that much text, it’s whatever they feel like posting.
Tumblr has a very simple Web 2.0 feel and look, feeling black and white at times though. The graphics are very simplistic in nature, but to the point. The navigation is smooth, unobtrusive, and clean, as well as the general interface of everything on the site.
It is very friendly to register on Tumblr. The only thing you are forced to do is input your e-mail address, password, and name of the Tumblr blog you require. With no verification code or e-mail check, it’s very smooth and fast- almost basic even. Registration can be considered one of the fastest out of all blog sites, so be sure to note that.
Tumblr is completely free as of August 2008. There are absolutely no ads, (which are subject to change) which are quite pleasing. However, in the future Tumblr may decide to include priced advanced options to help with costs, but they pledge to keep mostly everything free.
This site is extremely recommended for those who don’t have time to start a proper blog, or have no idea what they’re doing and want to give it a shot. The key point is that it takes less time to devote a blog on Tumblr than another blog service. Newcomers and experts alike at blogging will be pleased to try Tumblr and its reliable services.
- Ability to create your own unique blog
- Simplistic menu when adding new items to your blog
- Advanced menu to customize blog, own domain name, etc.
- Option to create a group where you can share control
- Choose to follow interesting blogs on Tumblr to be notified of updates
Howard Stern to replace Simon Cowell
According to several sources throughout Hollywood we have unconfirmed reports that Howard Stern will be replacing Simon Cowell on American Idol.
“American Idol” producers are eager to hire Howard Stern to replace Simon Cowell as the show’s tough-talking judge, sources tell Page Six.
An insider said that producers of the hit Fox show say Stern, America’s highest-paid radio personality, is their top choice to take over from Cowell, who leaves at the end of this season. They approached the King of All Media after he repeatedly mentioned on-air that his exclusive Sirius XM Radio deal expires next January and he was open to other offers. Cowell was paid $50 million a year.
A source connected to “Idol” said, “It’s one of the few shows that could compete with Stern’s $100 million-a-year Sirius contract, and ‘Idol’ bosses think he’d be even nastier than Simon. “They know he would be great TV and would clash with the other judges such as Ellen DeGeneres and the contestants. ‘Idol’ will do what it takes to sign him.” But a second source told us Stern hasn’t made the “Idol” talks easy, and has been giving out mixed messages about his intentions.
“Despite what he’s been saying on-air, Howard isn’t ready to leave radio and would like to stay on at Sirius,” the source said. “We believe this is a ploy to make Sirius pay up and keep him on his huge contract. But if Sirius can’t pay him the money he wants, he may negotiate to film ‘Idol’ on the side.”
Stern is also believed to be reluctant to commit to a show that would require him to tour the US as a judge and spend much of the year in Los Angeles.
He recently said, somewhat cryptically, “I was approached by a major TV network to take over a TV show and leave here and do that next year — and I did turn it down . . . I’m not even sure if I want to be working. I’m waiting to see what happens.”
Calls to Stern’s agent and producer were not returned. A rep for FOX declined to comment.
Howard Allan Stern (born January 12, 1954) is an American radio and media personality most notable for his radio show which since January 9, 2006, has been broadcasting on Sirius XM, an uncensored satellite radio service. Although described by the media as a “shock jock” for his sometimes controversial commentary and segments, Stern argues it never was his intention to “shock” people, whether discussing world affairs or the staff he works with. Stern is the highest-paid radio personality in the United States, and also the most fined, following a long history with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) since 1987.
Stern began his career in the radio industry in February 1975 at his campus station at Boston University, presenting a one-hour comedy program called “The King Schmaltz Bagel Hour” with college friends. Developing his on-air style for four years at Briarcliff Manor, Hartford and Detroit from 1977–1980, Stern paired up with his on-air news anchor Robin Quivers at Washington, D.C. in 1981. By August 1982, he arrived at New York City, the country’s largest radio market. Despite numerous disputes with management, Stern would have the top afternoon show by mid-1985. After being fired that September, he returned to New York airwaves on WXRK after a two-month absence, broadcasting for over twenty years until leaving for satellite radio, where he would be free from content restrictions imposed by the FCC, in December 2005.
Despite being little known outside the United States Stern describes himself as “The King of All Media” for his successes not only in radio but in print, film and television. His two books, Private Parts (1993) and Miss America (1995), received great media attention and sales, topping The New York Times Best Seller list within weeks of their release. The former was later adapted into a 1997 film of the same name directed by Betty Thomas, which grossed over $40 million in the United States alone. Stern’s television endeavors include various late night shows and successful pay-per-view specials.
Simon Phillip Cowell (born 7 October 1959) is an English music executive, television producer and entrepreneur. He is known in the United Kingdom and in the United States for his role as a talent judge on TV shows such as Pop Idol, The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, and American Idol. He is also the owner of the television production and music publishing house Syco.
Cowell is notorious as a judge for his blunt and often controversial criticisms, insults and wisecracks about contestants and their abilities. He is often parodied in pop culture, and was described by the The Times as representing the “heartless, thoughtless and superficial – the flotsam and jetsam of the polluted seas of celebrity that is likely to sink without trace into toxic foam”. Cowell is known for combining activities in the television and music industries, having promoted singles and records for various artists, including television personalities. He was most recently featured on the sixth series of The X Factor, the third series of Britain’s Got Talent, and can currently be seen on the ninth season of American Idol.
American Idol is a reality television competition which finds new solo musical talent. It was created by Simon Fuller and debuted June 11, 2002, as American Idol: The Search for a Superstar on the Fox network. It has since become one of the most popular shows in the history of American television. It is currently the #1 TV show in the Nielsen ratings and is one of only three that have been #1 for five consecutive seasons, along with All in the Family and The Cosby Show.
Part of the Idol franchise, it is a spin-off from the British show Pop Idol, of which two series were broadcast between 2001 and 2003 in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The program aims to discover the best singer in the country through a series of nation-wide auditions which culminates in viewer voting to determine the winner. Through telephone and SMS Text voting, America has chosen past winners Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Fantasia Barrino, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks, David Cook, and Kris Allen (listed in chronological order). Every American Idol winner except for Jordin Sparks (from Arizona) has been from the American South. The eligible age-range for contestants is currently 16–28 years old. The upper age limit was 24 in the first three seasons.
The series employs a panel of judges who critique the contestants’ performances: Grammy award-winning record producer and music manager Randy Jackson and award-winning music executive and music manager Simon Cowell have been judges for the entire series. Grammy award-winning pop singer and Emmy award-winning choreographer Paula Abdul was a judge for the show’s first eight seasons. The format originally featured three judges, with Latin Grammy Award-nominated singer–songwriter and record producer Kara DioGuardi added as a fourth judge for the eighth season. On September 9, 2009, Ellen DeGeneres was confirmed to be Abdul’s replacement for the ninth season. The show has been renewed for three more seasons. On January 11, 2010 Simon Cowell announced that he was leaving the show to pursue introducing his show The X Factor to the USA for 2011.
Ryan Seacrest has hosted the show for its entire run. During the first season, he was joined by comedian Brian Dunkleman. The American Idol band is currently led by Rickey Minor. Dorian Holley of Los Angeles Music Academy is Music Director and vocal coach ; he has been with the show since 2006.
The show usually airs on Tuesday and Wednesday nights in the United States and Canada, Wednesday and Thursday nights in Australia and Asia, Wednesday and Thursday nights on ITV2 in the United Kingdom, Friday nights in Ireland, Friday and Saturday nights in Israel, and Saturday and Sunday nights in Latin America.
Entertainment Weekly put it on its end-of-the-decade, “best-of” list, saying, “It’s given us Kelly, Carrie, Daughtry, and J. Hud. Idol rules the reality roost because the winners of Fox’s ratings juggernaut actually do go on to greatness. And Taylor Hicks? He’s the exception that proves the rule.”
