DM News blog

February 10th, 2006

DM News Blog screenshotDM News is a well-respected trade magazine for direct, online, and database marketers. Their blog provides their journalists with a place to record observations, to opine, to let their hair down and to write more informally and about more obscure topics. Not everything warrants coverage in print, but some things definitely warrant a blog mention. The DM News Blog gives readers a much better sense for the people behind DM News, who they are, and what interests them. In other words, it’s an inside view into the DM News newsroom.

Of course, as a group blog, the blogging system supports multiple authors. It includes an RSS feed. Since DM News’ staffers go to plenty of conferences and trade shows, it’s not surprising that they blog frequently about what is happening at these shows; therefore a separate subcategory is dedicated to each of the major shows that DM News attends.

DM News, welcome to the blogosphere! Glad that Netconcepts could help you get there.

Steve Spangler blog

September 3rd, 2005

Steve Spangler Science Blog screenshotOur client Steve Spangler is quite the renaissance man. In addition to being the CEO of a catalog company, he is also a toy inventor, an Emmy award winning television personality, a magician, an educator and a certified professional speaker. Just the sort of person you’d want blogging and podcasting.

The audio podcasts featured on Steve’s blog are targeted towards science teachers and include interviews with leading educators and monologues from Steve with helpful teaching tips. The video podcasts, targeted towards both teachers and parents, are some of the most amazing experiments you have ever seen. From exploding pumpkins to flying potatoes and erupting soda bottles, each episode is a hoot!

Functionality on the blog includes email subscriptions to posts and comments, buttons for readers to submit the post to Digg or del.icio.us, tag clouds and tag pages, RSS feeds, a audio podcast player built right into the blog, and more. Read the case study to learn more about this project and some of the results, including the fact that over 13% of their online sales can be attributed to Steve’s blog. The company’s products, which include science toys and experiment kits, are worked into the blog in a very soft sell way, so the blog doesn’t seem like a shill for the ecommerce shop.
