Podcasts Are Making a Comeback!

Listen to the new media trends: a podcast listener is worth his weight in gold

Listen, let’s be honest. All the buzz about podcasts sort of fizzled over the past year or so. Do people still use them and listen to them? Sure. Does everyone want to be a podcasting expert like they want to me a social media expert? Not so much.

This past weekend, I went to PodCamp Boston 5, a new media conference, and one of the big topics discussed was podcasting. This is not a new topic, podcasts have been around for years and the Podcamp community especially enjoys hyping it up.

Why Everyone Wants to Be a Publisher on the iPad

New media trend reports were wrong – people like flipping pages!

When the iPad was first released, Jacob Weisberg, an editor for wrote in an article that:

iPad App Ideas for Publishers

New media trends show that the iPad is bringing magazines back to life – why are we still resenting it?

The iPad is everywhere. It’s being used at Posh NYC restaurants as wine lists and menus, and it’s being doled out at hotels pre-loaded with newspapers.

So why is it that publishers are still struggling to come up with ways to use this device to sell their products? There are a few publishers doing a pretty rockin’ job with the iPad and have totally embraced the interactive nature of the device.

6 Great Ideas for Podcast Creation

Podcasting (both audio and video) is one of the Internet’s biggest new media trend – how can you start utilizing them?

If you are already offering online video, it’s practically a no-brainer to offer those videos as podcasts for your users. If you’re recording interviews, why not offer audio podcasts as well?

If you’re not doing either of the two items above and you’re one of many publishers that are not currently distributing their content on these new media platforms, you may find it more of a struggle to decide how to take advantage of podcasting.

Yesterday in OPA’s Intelligence Report, they had a story on how they are struggling to meet their revenue goals after acquiring the two social media empires in recent years.

According to the article, MySpace was snatched up by News Corp. and “trumpeted at being valued at $6 billion or more, yet the unit will fall short of its $1 billion revenue goal by 10%.“

News Corp. COO Peter Chernin gave three reasons why even their revenues have decreased by $23 million in sequential quarters

Notes and Quotes from the American Magazine Conference

Branding, Convergence and Digital Growth, Dubbed “The MagaBrand Revolution,” were the Big Themes at this Year’s American Magazine Conference in Boca Raton

New Media Trends – Ok, so maybe not every editor attending the 2007 American Magazine Conference is now willing to call what they print each month a “MagaBrand,” but as AMC conference chair, Men’s Health editor-in-chief David Zinczenko points out, success in today’s media marketplace means reaching beyond the newsstands to TV, radio, the Web, email newsletters, podcasts, webcasts, and live events.
