No More Web Training Please

first_imgIf you’ve read my blog in recent weeks, you know I’ve grown very worried about what 2008 will bring for b-to-b publishing. A few days ago, I wrote that it’s “time for b-to-b editors and publishers to build some fighting holes”-defensive positions from where they could ride out the coming onslaught of bad economic news.I promised then that I would “post some of my thoughts on what a b-to-b fighting hole looks like.” And given the news that the smartest guys on Wall Street think a recession is coming, I think today is the day for me to start discussing tactics.Let’s start with a little story. A few weeks ago I had coffee with a long-time friend and journalist. We got to talking about new media. I told him about the remarkable work being done by Rob Curley‘s team at Loudoun Extra, and I told him that he should go straight home, log on and check it out.But my friend said that he did not have an Internet connection at his home.When my shock wore off, I asked why. And my friend, who makes pretty good money, said he didn’t want to pay for Web access. “It doesn’t seem worth it,” he said.I was reminded of that conversation earlier today when an anonymous reader posted a comment to an earlier post of mine. That reader complained that”employers aren’t doing much to train their current employees and prepare them as online journalists.”That’s true, I thought. But I don’t care. I believe that journalists need to learn these skills themselves. As I said more than two years ago”… at this point, you can’t blame the boss for not teaching these things. The difficult truth is that people who can’t insert a hyperlink, who won’t read a blog, who don’t know how to work with Photoshop and can’t upload a video file just aren’t worth having around anymore.”Now, as difficult times loom, I’m taking an even harder stance. I’m urging employers not to offer any training in Web journalism. There are two reasons for this. Here they are:1. You cannot train someone to be part of a culture.For someone to work on the Web, they must be part of the Web. That, after all, is what the Web means. The Web is a web. It exists as a series of connections. An online journalist isn’t a journalist who works online. He’s a journalist who lives online. He’s part of the Web.It’s a waste of time and money to teach multimedia skills and technology to someone who hasn’t already become part of the Web. And there’s no need to teach skills and technology to the journalists who are already part of Web culture, because the culture requires participation in skills and technology.Or, to put it another way — I cannot teach the Web. No one can. Yet all of us who are part of the Web are learning the Web.2. When the fighting begins, the training must end.We had a good run. For the past few years, life has been pretty easy for b-to-b publishers that have embraced the Web. We have been an army that has known nothing but victory. But if I’m right, the easy times are over.We have moved too far, too fast. Our lines are overextended. Our advance has been halted. We are vulnerable.We cannot move backward to round up the stragglers and train them to fight. It’s too late to try to convince print journalists that the Web has value. It’s too late to tell them that an Internet connection is worth a few dollars a month. As revenue shrinks, we can’t spend money on training. We can’t gather up the print folks and “prepare them as online journalists.”You can’t prepare people to dig a fighting hole. You just tell them to dig. And the ones who don’t dig fast enough, deep enough or well enough, die.[Some readers are sure to be thinking — “Is he nuts? Isn’t training newsroom staffs part of what he does for a living?” To which I reply, “Yes. I am nuts. And I do offer training to newsroom staffs.” Odds are there’s something valuable I can offer to the staff at your publication. There are certainly non-training services I can offer your company. Send an email to inquire (at) paulconley (dot) com and we can talk about it. Just don’t ask me to teach another “writing for the Web” course. There’s no room for Web newbies in a b-to-b fighting hole.]More on this topic Getting Wired and Getting Funded Digging a Fighting Hole Looking at Journalism’s Future Reflections on Bob Krakoff Bloggers: Lawsuits Won’t Stop Publishers From Blogging Time Inc.

New York Launches Events Division

first_imgScheduled events include New York KidShop, a one-day shopping event focused on the children’s marketplace slated for December 6, 2008; Taste of New York; Best Bets; and the New York by New York event series.While the events division will provide a separate and distinct revenue stream from the advertising division, the company expects some event sponsors will also end up advertising in the magazine or on nymag.com. New York magazine announced today the launch of an events division, New York Events, to produce consumer and trade show events in the New York market.The goal is to attract new business and sponsorships from Fortune 500 companies, according to publisher Larry Burstein. Sona Hacherian, executive director of creative and marketing services, will oversee the new division. The company has hired a sponsorship sales director, Lanny Morris, who will report to Hacherian and Burstein.The company’s hope is that event sponsors will also end up advertising in the magazine or on nymag.com.last_img read more

Buyout Window Closes Layoffs Loom at Time Inc

first_imgWednesday was the deadline for representatives of the Newspaper Guild to notify Time Inc. brass about how many staffers accepted buyout offers as the company looks to eliminate as many as 500 from its overall workforce.Time Inc. is expected to begin slashing jobs as early as next week. The number of cuts will depend on how many volunteers stepped up for the buyout packages. I was told today by a company spokesperson, not unexpectedly, that Time Inc. won’t be disclosing the number of employees who accepted the buyouts.The New York Post’s Keith Kelly has a relatively detailed outline of how the layoffs might play out: The publisher’s biggest magazines (Time, People, Sports Illustrated, Fortune and Money) could eliminate 90 editorial positions—as many as 40 possibly coming from Fortune. During a recent earnings call, Jeff Bewkes, CEO of Time Inc. parent Time Warner, said the company will incur a $100 million charge during the fourth quarter as it begins a restructuring of Time Inc., primarily in respect to its news group. He said the restructuring will be “more targeted” in comparison to the massive changes that were made this time last year, resulting in around 600 layoffs.And about those layoffs last year: They were made department-by-department, instead of happening all at once as part of a collective announcement. News of more and more and more layoffs were unveiled in slow motion. We saw the same thing happen this fall at Condé Nast. Following the closure of Gourmet, Cookie, Elegant Bride and Modern Bride, hundreds of layoffs happened, but were announced at a painfully slow pace, over several weeks. It must have been a killer for employee morale. (In fact, morale hit such an “all-time low” the company reportedly hired a crisis intervention expert.)As Time Inc. gears up for its latest wave of job cuts, I hope, for the sake of its staffers, that the axe falls swiftly and that workers aren’t paralyzed, waiting for days and weeks for the final word about whether they will remain employed.last_img read more

Action Codes Continue to Gain Traction in Magazines

first_imgQR codes and their ilk continue to rise in usage by publishers, according to a study out today by mobile marketing and technology services company Nellymoser. In the second quarter, the top 100 magazines by circulation featured a variety of mobile action codes in 2,200 instances, a 61 percent jump over the first quarter this year.The study doesn’t track scan rates or actions taken post scan, but the printing of QR codes, digital watermarks and other action codes is definitely on the rise—in the first quarter of 2011, there was a comparatively modest 352 codes printed. And, at the end of first half 2012, the number of action codes printed is already coming close to the 4,468 that were printed during all of 2011.See Also: Mobile Action Codes Increased 439 Percent in Top 100 Mags Last YearWhile the instances of codes appearing in the top 100 magazines went from 1,365 to 2,200 the number specifically appearing in advertisements also jumped, going from 5 percent of ad pages in the second quarter 2011 to 10 percent this year. For the first time all 100 of the top magazines featured at least one action code. And of all the codes, QR codes are still the most prevalent, with more than 80 percent market share since December 2011. The beauty, health and automotive categories accounted for 49 percent of all action codes in the second quarter, with automotive more than doubling its use of codes between the first and second quarter. Video continues to be the most common use for action codes, with 40 percent of codes leading to a product demo, behind the scenes look or some other clip. Sweepstakes and social sharing were also heavily used at 20 percent of instances. For more, see the full study here.Action Codes by QuarterSource: Nellymoser, Inc.last_img read more

Newsstand Declines Hitting New Lows Across More Categories

first_img There’s more bad news in the analysis of who’s being affected by the consumer’s growing lack of interest in picking up single copies. MagNet data shows that smaller titles whose newsstand sales had been holding up well against bigger ones are now feeling the squeeze. Whereas the top 25 and 50 titles had been experiencing larger declines, the latest data show that titles in the top 100 and top 1000 have pulled even. The percentage decline in sales is now more similar across all groups of titles through the top 1000, ranging from -1.4 percent for the top 25, to 3.2 percent for the top 1000. MagNet, though, puts a caveat on the comparison; the 2014 numbers may be overestimated both because numbers from Source Interlink Distribution dried up when it went out of business, and Barnes & Noble stopped providing data this year. That even despite publishers responding by paring back the number of hard copies distributed by 40 million over the same time period, but perhaps owing partly to an average 5 percent increase in cover prices. The latter move was factored into a dollar sales efficiency figure of 26.5 percent.  Yet MagNet is confident enough in the numbers to suggest in its narrative on the data that a stabilization of newsstand circ doesn’t appear to be in sight. The decline began eight years ago and sales are approaching an inauspicious milestone. The newsstand tracker’s first-half 2015 numbers are in and they show that the key metric of sales efficiency hit what it says is an all-time low. Only 26.8 percent of the magazines publishers distributed to retail outlets actually sold, down from 31 percent in the first half of 2014.

(Includes estimates for Barnes & Noble sales) Source: MagNetcenter_img “We estimate that newsstand magazine sales will generate about $2.5 billion in 2015, just about half of what was generated in 2007,” the review reads in part. It’s getting to be old news now. Magazine newsstand sales are declining, according to the latest data from MagNet. But what is new, and worrisome, is that the declines are accelerating and the pain is spreading. MagNet’s outlook for 2015 looks even gloomier looking beyond the first-half numbers that are in the books. It says preliminary July and August numbers are tracking worse than those for the first half. Title rank comparison for U.S. and Canada, first half 2015 versus 2014.

Avengers Endgame ending — Solo Black Widow movie may feature Iron Man

first_imgScarlett Johansson as the Black WidowAvengers official FacebookAvengers: Endgame movie released earlier this week and it instantly broke all the box-office predictions. The movie made a whopping $60 million on opening day and movie experts are predicting that it will garner more than $1 billion. Apart from the box-office success, the movie will be remembered for several iconic sequences and particularly the one which happened between Black Widow and Hawkeye.Major spoilers for Avengers Endgame movie:As we have covered in our previous Avengers Endgame time travel post, Black Widow and Hawkeye goes to Vormir to get the Soul Stone. As we learned in Avengers: Infinity War, the only way one can acquire Soul Stone is by sacrificing the one person he or she loves the most. In IW, Thanos sacrificed his daughter Gamora.Black Widow and Hawkeye had a discussion as who is going to die and who is going to get the stone. After a lot of heated argument that involved punching and hurting each other physically, we see how Black Widow dies and Hawkeye comes back to the present storyline with the Soul Stone.If Black Widow is dead then what it means for Scarlett Johansson’s solo Black Widow movie?Scarlett Johansson has played Natasha Romanoff from Iron Man 2 and has remained a core member of the Avengers team. Before Captain Marvel, she was the only woman in the group and her presence meant a great deal especially to Bruce Banner aka Hulk. Scarlett Johansson at the press event for Avengers: EndgameTwitterAs earlier reported, a solo Black Widow movie was in development by Marvel with a May 2020 release. Cate Shortland is attached to direct the project and stars like Rachel Weisz, Florence Pugh, and David Harbour are going to play some important roles. At first, we were speculating that the solo Black Widow movie will feature Natasha’s story after the events of Avengers Endgame movie but the character’s death has proved that the upcoming solo movie will be a prequel story, which means that we might get to see other Avengers as well.As of now, neither The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios have confirmed the plot details of Black Widow movie but since the lead character is dead, it is most likely that they will be working on a prequel movie. We are not sure whether we get to see Tony Stark in the upcoming Black Widow movie but characters like Clint Barton aka Hawkeye, Captain Marvel, and Nick Fury may come in some capacity.Production of solo Black Widow movie is expected to begin after the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home.last_img read more

Feud between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard escalates as he claims new

first_imgThe war of legal suits continues between Johnny Depp and estranged wife Amber Heard as things have taken an ugly turn. Now, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor has submitted a new declaration claiming that his ex-wife used tricks to fool the jury.In a defamation lawsuit, as obtained by E! News, Depp alleges that Amber “painted on bruises” and instead was the one who caused him “serious bodily injury.” Further in his declaration, Depp has claimed that the violent incident occurred when Amber was under the influence of “prescription amphetamines and non-prescription drugs with alcohol.” His claims also state that the abuse took place on multiple occasions and that Heard used a variety of weapons including soda cans and paint cans to attack.The document further adds that Depp suffered from physical as well as emotional abuse. One of the incidents mentioned in the defamation suit claims that Amber and one of her friends allegedly “defecated” in his bed as part of “some sort of a sick prank.” Apparently, this is what pushed him off the edge and he opted to divorce her. “As a result of the years of domestic abuse I had suffered at the hands of Ms. Heard—most recently the April 21 physical attack and defecation on my bed sometime before she and her friends left the next morning—I resolved to divorce Ms. Heard,” Depp explained in his document. Amber Heard and Johnny DeppTwitterThe new allegations by Depp contradicts his previous court filing which actually requested a dismissal of the lawsuit based on the claims made by her against him. The documents submitted by Heard to support her claim were pictures of her sporting bruises, property damage that she blamed on Depp and screenshots of text messages which describe the abuse and incidents faced. In a statement shared by her lawyer, it says, “It is regrettable that it will take a judge to finally end the persistent harassment of Ms. Heard by Mr. Depp, but Ms. Heard will take whatever action is necessary to vindicate the truth.” Amber Heard’s Instagram postInstagramAlthough Amber Heard and Johnny Depp dissolved their vehement marriage back in August 2016, they continue to wash their dirty linen n public. There are constant claims and new allegations made by both of them to make each other look like the horrible person in the relationship. Amber has received a $7 million dollar settlement from the actor.last_img read more
