publishing; News apps way of the future, says Media Man agency
text advertisement here from as little as $100USD per 12 months
by Human Statue Bodyart
often asked "What's the future of newspapers"?
here's more of your weekly Gonzo journalism style banter of the industry many
people love to hate.
Newspapers in one form of another are hear to stay.
Newspapers in their traditional form are likely to get thinner, if as there not
thin enough already.
Online newspaper websites will continue to grow, and numerous online advertising
campaigns will compliment the news, as well as sponsored content, special features
backed by firms who can pay a few extra bucks, and most papers will incorporate
some kind of paywall, just as The Sydney Morning
Herald, The Age, The
Australian Financial Review, The
Daily Telegraph, The Wall Street Journal,
and others have done.
Our friends at the Australian based ABC will
continue to look to use every trick in the book to gain extra readership, as well
as look to curb retention, by doing cross promotions and also continue to invest
in online technologies and online advertising, be it via online advertising giant
Google, Facebook, or another firm that may not even be in existence yet.
News apps, such as SMH and The Age will continue to develop. Obviously news media
giants would like their brand of news to be front of mind, and to be the first
port of call of Joe and Jane's smartphone.
Mergers and acquisitions will continue to be all the rage, be it a merger between
Bloomberg and Ten, Bloomberg and Sky News,
Reuters or whatever. There are simply too
many news media players in the current national and international market, and
not enough online advertisers for all firms to remain without considerable shake
ups to the business models. Companies will merge including a few surprises.
Niche media outlets will continue to be all the rage. Witness the Australian real
estate sector wars such as Domain vs RealEstate.com.au
vs Local Agent Finder vs Purple
Bricks or even in the action sports arena, WWE
Network vs UFC Fight Pass.
Funny example, I know. Ok, Carsales
vs Drive.com.au. Oh, Figure
Four Online / Wrestling Observer Newsletter vs Pro
Wrestling Torch, and if surfing and surf culture is your thing: CoastalWatch
vs Swellnet. Oh, Gaming and gambling.. Gambling911
vs Poker News Daily. Perhaps iGaming
Business. Comics and the superhero genre your thin? Enter Marvel
Comics / Marvel Studios vs DC
Comics / Warner Bros. wars. 20th
Century FOX will continue to interject from time to time, as will Sony
with Spider-Man. Where's Frank Miller and his Sin-City when you need him. Lord
knows Marvel's Going to run with a Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 at some point.
There's too much money to be made on the franchise, and we all want the next mixtape
right! Google Play and friends will
be more than happy to sell it to you. If hard copy comic books are your thing
the website is ComicBookFinder.com
Go on, you know you want to.
currency news: CoinTelegraph vs CoinDesk,
and so it goes on.
personalities and entertainers looking to do their own thing via the podcasting
medium - 100s to find at the likes of PodcastOne.com
We miss you Rowdy Roddy Piper.. R.I.P. Those who like their pro wrestling banner
raw will appreciate our friend Jake
'The Snake' Roberts...he's part of the Diamond
Dallas Page connection. Comon', you must have heard of Dally and DDP
Yoga? Still waiting for UFC / MMA living legend Ken
Shamrock to release his podcast, which he gave us the scoop on a few months
back. Some good things take time. Female wrestling legends Madusa and Lilian Garcia
also have them. You will have to appreciate them for their vocal skills and beautiful
voices... it's not about their good looks on the podcast's fellas.
Expect crypto currency brands such as Bitcoin
to continue to remain very newsworthy, and for news media to ramp up their involvement
with the Crypto's... is that a word Jack?
Our company, Media Man (Media Man Int
and Media Man Australia) will continue
to survive and team up with suitable media partners, and carry advertisements,
in addition to maintaining some sponsored content. Expect more newspaper backed
events in the same vein as The Sun-Herald City2Surf.
The Greg Tingle Promotions website is
a work in progress, as we adapt to the ever changing news media business landscape.
Yes, you may advertise via the Greg Tingle Promotions website also, if you insist!
Google's YouTube and Netflix
will continue to dominate the streaming medium. Apple
will continue to do their darnest to make further inroads into this major sector.
Blockchain will start to become a factor in the news media business, be it online
and / or off-line.
Rupert Murdoch and his News Corp will remain a major player in the space. Murdoch's
quote 'Big will not beat small anymore. It will be the fast beating the slow',
will continue to hold true in many fashions.
this is an opinion piece punters, if you didn't figure it out already. Some will
love it, some will not, such is the nature of the beast. We shall look forward
to the haters and the fan mail. Don't like it? Tell the dog!
stay tuned for a more corporate or so called "professional" version
of this article, without so many pop culture references, if that's your thing.
You can't please all of the people all of the time.
