Blogging and Podcasting Sitting in a Tree: Optimizing a WordPress Site for Your Podcast (Digital Broadcasting Track)
First comes your love of podcasting, then comes it’s marriage to blogging. But getting them to kiss and play nice can be a complicated. With all the ID3 tags, iTunes formatting, RSS feeds and XML code involved to ensure a properly delivered podcast, setting up a website for distributing media can be challenging. A few awesome plugins and some basic design knowledge can eliminate that challenge. This session offers precisely the counseling and support you need to gain the necessary skills to configure a WordPress blog for podcasting. Presented by: Angelo Mandato, host of Plugins, The WordPress Plugins Podcast; Brian Yuhnke, host of the Higher Ed Technology podcast, TechHEds.
The Art and Science of Scaling Social Media
(Social Media Business Summit)
Bringing together earned social media and paid media, when done correctly, can generate a perfect storm of credibility and reach – in many ways, the Holy Grail of the socialweb. Earned media is incredibly expensive to generate, and it’s difficult to get it to a mass audience, regardless of how credible it is. Paid media reaches tons of eyeballs, but does it really win hearts and minds? SMG has worked with clients on a number of very successful programs to marry the two using social ad platforms like Twitter, Digg, Outbrain and others. Results include average click-through rates of over .8% and as high as 4.11% and re-ignition of conversations around important issues. While we can’t completely open the kimono on this innovative new approach, I’ll share high-level insights and intelligence about how some of the most socially innovative organizations in the world have cracked a new form of public dialogue – at scale.
