U.S. Government Sues to Break Up Google
"To this huge story which, by the way, we hope that Google doesn't block this podcast because of the very sensitive, the very touchy about this whole antitrust issue, whether or not there are monopoly. This is the second lawsuit that the government has filed against Google, alleging, monopoly like practices. The fear here understandably is that while Google has effectively become the only game in town, kind of the be all end all if you would for digital advertising. And thus the lawsuit focuses pretty much on the online advertising business, the government wants Google to divest parts of that business. It will be a big deal. You know, think back to the marbel days. How the phone company used to be a giant giant monopoly. I remember, we weren't allowed to really make long distance phone calls as kids, even to just a few towns over in our little state because it cost so much money. That was the problem, right? Because they controlled everything. And so eventually it got all broken up into different companies, and it was the best thing that could have happened for consumers and for innovation and for the overall economy. This is why for capitalism to really work, you can't have companies that are controlling everything. You can not have monopolies. And so now the second lawsuit is coming from the U.S. government against Google. The DoJ is being joined by California, Colorado, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Tennessee, and Virginia in this lawsuit, alleging again that the company has too much power, too much power in terms of the buying the selling of the whole ad exchange, industry, thereby giving it all the leverage. The fear is from a content perspective that whoever's controlling this has extraordinary influence over what gets seen in what gets heard and it may be one reason why you see so many content creators trying to seek out different business models
A New Year Impression With Wendy O
"What is the biggest story of the year and why? So much has happened in 2022, especially in the crypto industry. I think the most important thing we're story to note is how regulation backfired against everybody in the crypto industry. We're told that regulation is here to keep us safe, that the SEC is here to keep us safe. But in reality, most of the companies that actually harm consumers were licensed and registered to operate in the United States of America. So even though I don't have one particular story that was the biggest story, I can say that because we haven't been able to determine good laws and regulation for crypto to actually protect consumers, we've done more damage than. Good. What do I want to focus on in the crypto industry the most? For me, my job is a content creator is to talk about all different aspects of Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and NFTs. And to help people practice self education and critical thinking. Just because I talk about something, doesn't mean that it's something you may be interested. I always advocate for my audience to hear what I say, but to listen to themselves. And that basically means getting information from people like me, from Queen desk, the hash, any other publication, and coming up with a decision and an idea that makes sense for you and your family. I love crypto Bitcoin NFTs, all of it, but at the same time, I think it's really, really, really important that we all focus on improving our quality of life and getting our information from a lot of different media sources or people that are practicing citizen journalism. My favorite topic in crypto honestly is the whole entire industry. And I know that that's a lot of information or a big idea. But realistically, I'd love to see people from different walks of life come together, improve their quality of life, and also just change the way that they were taught in the past.

How China Corrupts Our Children While Protecting Their Own
"The Chinese version of TikTok. It's completely different than western or American TikTok. Western American TikTok is unbelievably sort of laissez-faire. You have all kinds of people talking about their tattoos. All kinds of depravity is discussed on TikTok. By and large, there is a there is a search results are manipulated by and large to feed people's desire for novelty for sort of moral and sexual experimentation. Kind of anything goes. And you might think, well, if this is what this is what the algorithms are pushing for, if this is what quote the market wants. But interestingly, in China, it's totally different. So Chinese TikTok it turns out, is highly educational. Chinese TikTok has a lot of math and science. Chinese TikTok is actually encouraging you to watch videos in which you can learn how to make things, how to do things, how to be more entrepreneurial, how to start businesses, apparently the Chinese have a plan, it's called a Meg Z plan. And this is a plan for the you may call it B, educational upgrading of the whole population. So obviously focused on young people, but not just young people. And it turns out that the Chinese, it's not just that they manipulate the algorithms to drive traffic in China toward education, they pay content creators to create educational content, make it more interesting, make it more viral, more infectious, make it such that people really want to see it. And so, and they're also our time limits. So interestingly, in Chinese TikTok, if you're a user between the age of 14 and 18, you can only use the app for 40 minutes a day and there are certain hours that are kind of off limits. You can't use the app at that particular age. So what the Chinese are doing here now, I don't deny that they're probably also trying to cultivate in their citizens kind of loyalty to the Chinese government. I recognize that when you have authoritarian and totalitarian governments, the subservience of the citizenry is part of their goal. But I also think that the Chinese realized that this is a competitive world. We're trying to make citizens that are more hardworking that are smarter that are more focused on productivity and the material and economic uplift of Chinese society and we're just going to promote the best we can the moral degeneracy of the west.
"content creator" Discussed on Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood
"We don't have access to things like being able to be easily located if we are under a shadow ban. So we just we have a harder time kind of utilizing the landscape, but we're still in all of the same places doing many of the same things, really. And there are different regulations that apply to your content as well. The nuance to that is that that's what makes Twitter interesting if it did get paid well to me, particularly. Because when you're an adult content creator and you're publishing adult content, there's a lot of legal background that goes into that. There's forms if we have contact with another creator. We have their idea on file. We have a government called the two two 5 7 that we submit and we have handy in case we get audited for that. So we have a lot of actual admin work and documentation that goes along with what we do. And with Twitter not being paywalled, none of that is being kind of looked at. So the interesting part about it being paywall is it actually would allow us to expand our businesses onto a social platform. If that is the way that they choose to take things, I don't necessarily know that that's how it will play out, but that's what makes it interesting to watch is that if Twitter did allow us to sell adult content on its platform and it was paywalled, that could really have a huge impact on major players like an only fans in our space. So it's going to depend a lot where the dust settles and a lot of it's a little too soon to tell. What are some of the surprising things you found out about whose sex workers are and how they're running their businesses from the survey. I think the standouts for me personally were that one in three creators were over the age of 35, which I really didn't expect.
"content creator" Discussed on Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood
"Some of the country's biggest advertisers are still balking at the new Twitter under Elon Musk. A recent report from media matters for America found at least half of Twitter's top 100 biggest advertisers have either announced they will stop running ads on the platform or just seem to be stopping more quietly. But not all businesses can walk away so easily. Take sex workers, a recent survey from the website, sex work CEO, says Twitter is incredibly important for adult content creators, helping them connect with fans, find new ones and promote their legal businesses. Melrose Michaels is the founder of sex work CEO. She walked me through how adult content creators are responding to all the recent changes at Twitter. There's been talk of kind of pay walling, something like Twitter. So there's excitement around the idea that maybe we can utilize Twitter as a platform paywall or fears on the flip side that if it becomes paywalled that we can no longer grow our businesses because we will be unable to access people outside of the paywall. So it depends how it comes into play in what really happens, that will dictate the outcome of how it impacts us as a community. You did conduct this crowdsourced survey of sex workers and adult content creators about which platforms they're using and other aspects of their work, and 97% of them said Twitter was their top platform for finding fans. Why is that? Twitter is a main home in hub for us in terms of finding fans because it's the only place where we really can access a new audience. Twitter is the last frontier for adult creators to link to an adult platform directly, have a one click conversion and have a sale made. And without this tool at our disposal, we're really at a huge disadvantage. A lot of people have said that they plan to leave Twitter or are leaving Twitter because of Elon Musk taking over the platform. How might that affect sex workers and the fact that they do get so much of their audience from Twitter?
Could Elon Musk Partner With the Video Platform Rumble?
"I want to talk about a possible possible potential. A partnership between the world's richest man, Elon Musk. And the terrific video platform, the alternative to YouTube. Called rumble. Now full disclosure, Debbie and I love rumble, the people at rumble came to me early on as they went to bongino and a couple of others and they basically said help us to build out this platform. And we did rumble began to grow rapidly. We began to post content on rumble. Subsequently, we were invited to invest in rumble, which we have, so I'm kind of letting you know that I have a stake or an interest in rumble. It's not going to affect anything I'm allowed to say, which is just descriptive. But nevertheless, rumble has grown from a relatively small platform of created by the way by Canadian named Chris pavlovsky. And Chris original idea was to create a platform that would help small content creators, as opposed to the big content creators that get enormous preferences at YouTube. And so it wasn't set up ideologically, but Chris is a free speech guy, and it's a real free speech platform. By the way, if you are not on rumble, you should be. Set up a rumble account, rumble is going places and you can find a lot of my content on rumble. Now, there was recently a very interesting exchange. It all started when the commentator Russell Brand was kicked off of censored on YouTube, and he was furious. It was over COVID and over the vaccines. And basically Russell Brand says, I'm moving to rumble. I'm going to put all my content up on rumble. And so Elon Musk kind of weighed in and basically said that, you know, it was very interesting. He was endorsing the free speech approach of Russell Brand. And then Dan bongino waited and basically said, hey, Elon, it would be great if you and rumble got together. It would be as one Geno puts it a four multiplier because rumble is a real freeze free speech platform and of course Elon Musk has the resources to essentially take rumble and make it into a kind of rocket, perhaps one that could even soar past past YouTube.
Biden Deploys TikTok Stars to Amplify His Lies
"Communication strategy from The White House has been bubbling up for the last couple of months. We knew that The White House was employing these TikTok influencers. But now some I guess you could call them whistleblowers are coming out and saying, we were just told to pair it direct talking points from The White House. And this Gen Z for change is an organization, coalition of 500 content creators who leverage the power of the Internet to educate mobilize our generation to create change. Originally founded as TikTok for Biden as a network to defeat Donald Trump, ultimately capturing 324 million views. Now that's pretty weak. If you know anything about turning point USA's ambassador program, purely educational, not political, these numbers are low. But what they are doing now is they're offering they're basically becoming a public private partnership within the Biden regime where Biden is stuffing his unpopular ideas to now get into the phone's directly of your grandchildren or your children or maybe you yourself if you're listening. It says right here that they generated 48,000 petition signatures against Florida's don't say gay Bill alongside a coalition of incredible grassroots activists and organizers. You wonder why some young people are so uninformed and misinformed. It's because the regime realizes the fight is beyond just newspapers and what's happening on TV. It's happening right on the phones. And they're good at it. What's an example of this? Well, let's play cut one 22 of one of these quote unquote TikTok influencers. Outwardly in nakedly peddling propaganda, pravda of the state, play cut one 22. I had the opportunity to ask The White House by gas down the street is $7 and here's what they said. The obvious reason, we're getting out of a two year pandemic when use goes up, price goes up. Now, with Putin starting this horrific fight between Ukraine and Russia, nobody wants to work with him and do an international trade. So with people being scared of war and limited resources, prices are bound to go up as well. So this is a young lady by the name of Ellie zyler 1.7 million followers on Instagram and it looks like 10.6 million followers on TikTok with over 356 million likes on TikTok rather considerable. Just parroting very basic kind of Democrat propaganda talking points. I'm not going to attack her. She's just a spokesperson. She doesn't know any better and in some ways you could feel sorry for her, but she's a typical celebrity that just here say this. Okay, here's this video and I'm going to do this thing and but it goes straight that right there is seen by more young people than anything else. Now again,
"content creator" Discussed on Esports Network Podcast
"Origin radio, one of the biggest mainstays was the sure SM 7 B's that we used in the studios and those have been insane. So I can only imagine have that in a pocket sized microphone pretty much. It's like a boom arm. We would sound just as equally impressive. So you guys, most not beautiful. And I've seen the videos that the vods you guys have put out and then the content and stuff like that, you guys look great in the obviously you're pretty funny to build entertaining. I'm not going to say too much on that, but you guys are it's pretty fun to watch and so I'm glad you guys have been upgrading yourselves to that point. And so now let's talk about the content creation a little bit. So what is this fanatic network? What is this fanatic network of content creators and how did you guys go about joining it really? Let's start with Phoebe. Yeah, so the network is kind of the I think on the website it says talent initiative of phonetic. So they want to support upcoming streamers, eSports talents, stuff like that to grow and have someone to talk to and someone who supports them in growing. And I actually saw a commercial for the phonetic network. Oh. And is that okay? I had a lot of other small organizations talk to me before if I wanted to join them and I thought, oh, it's got okay, this is not the right thing for me. I am pretty good on my own and I'm yeah, I don't need someone to support me. But since I played league a long time, I always was a very big fan of phonetic and saw kind of the opportunity there to join them and just apply it and pretty fast, one of the genetic stuff came back to me and asked if I want to have a chat with them and yeah, I think it took 6 hours 7 hours and they came back to me and said, yeah, we would like for you to join us and ought to be, do you want to be part of a network? Oh, wow, so what was that feeling like when you kind of reached back to you after not even a day, you're just like, wow, were you shocked? Were you just like, yeah, I was so shocked because I expected them to, I don't know, take two, three, maybe four days to answer me. And that it only took a few hours. I thought, okay, maybe they are not so many people applying, but I thought, okay, this can not be the case. And yeah, they were just, I don't know, the chat was really nice and we were on one. Yeah, how do you say that wavelength? Pretty fast. Yeah. And yeah, I don't know. That works. It's a physical. What was the experience like for you kind of joining fanatic and kind of having that same conversation that CB had was it a different way for you? Did you wait a little bit longer how did that go? That was pretty much the same way. Someone from floating message me. And I wasn't aware that it was looking for concentric craters. I didn't know that. I was always thinking about fnatic as an eSport team with pro players. I know plating since League of Legends, 2010, something like that. And you know, it was very impressive I was really impressed by it by fanatic. And seeing a message from them was, I don't know, I was very happy to receive this message. So I said yes, I joined them and it's kind of a family for me now. For form one year now, a bit more. So now that's impressive though. You get that message from an eSports organization that you followed for what ten years almost right and it's kind of to have them come up on you like that. What was your reaction like when you kind of got the call? Like, oh well, we want you to come join us and then you're going to this is officials like set in stone. What was your reaction? We kind of shocked or you just please happy, joyful, jumping for joy? Almost because, you know, it's one of the biggest team in the world, you know? And you've winning the world and you've not been winning a lot of things on different different games. And yeah, I was really, really happy when I saw them. I hope I will continue. For sure, for sure. And so if you guys have obviously been on different journeys, you kind of have had different perspectives on things. And for anybody trying to get into content creation, it can be kind of hard to either work two jobs at once to kind of scratch it enough money to get some things together or maybe they just aren't confident enough to start. What piece of advice could you give somebody who is looking to kind of start that journey to streaming or start that journey to posting YouTube videos? I mean, he doesn't need that to be gaming related. It can be just comedy skits or something. Somebody who's looking to get involved, what piece of advice would you give to them? I'll start with CB. Probably to don't give up early because it can be very, very frustrating. I remember my first one to two months, maybe. Where sometimes was my only viewer, you only streaming on Twitch. And you have the chat and OBS, I don't know, on your maybe phone or iPad next to you open because you're starting you don't have the perfect setup. And there's one viewer and you are these one viewer and you're just watching yourself. There's no one else, but at the same time you act like there are 500 people watching you and enjoying your stream. And this can be very, very frustrating at the beginning. So this will get better for sure 100% this will get better over time, but it takes a while and you should not stop while it's still this case kind of. Yeah, now for sure. And physically good about you, what was your early days like and what piece of advice could you give to people who are looking to get involved? I took almost a year an entire year to reach 10,000 subscribers on YouTube. And my last would be do not start streaming first on Twitch because it will be very, very hard to reach, I would say, one, 100 viewers, you have to make videos first. I would say, and take your community from YouTube and put it on Twitch or even stream on YouTube if you want. Because I mean, growing on Twitch now and studying now, it would be really, really hard. Don't give up, but you have to make videos. I would say you make videos on YouTube first. You make tiktoks, tiktoks. Huge, huge platform. And you can bring a lot of people to your other social medias. So.
"content creator" Discussed on The Business of Content
"And you're going to go so for us. It should remove every conceivable barrier to entry to get people up to and the all the other version is a revenue share where creators like. This is how i want to actually monetize. My content is offer the ability to text message with my paying subscribers. What's the kind of on boarding. Processes is the creator saying texas phone number and then the text then it will send them an automatic prompt where they can click on a link and then entered their payment information. Or what's that kind of onboard lee process of like yet. Now you you nailed the you nailed it. So it's as simple as sharing the phone number so each one of our hosts is a given an individual at local phone. Number people can tax that number And if you text into it and you're not a subscriber we bounce you back you are l. You gotta the url you in her all the requisite information so a credit card zip code phone number name everything that we need to collect in order to be able to process the payment and then you know assuming everything goes through your opted in to see those messages and we just bill on sort of a subscription base so i kind of akin to two sub stack in that sense except with bilateral communication Probably lower barrier to entry in terms of content creation And really i think interesting unique Engagement in in terms of in terms of the media. So let's talk about the practical application. Because i think a lot of people when they hear about this day -ssume that the content creator has to be constantly responding the people's tax. And so they think it's it's not a fair value exchange like if someone's paying four dollars a month should i have to respond to every text. Message say cindy you could see where that that could add up to a lot of time. That's worth a hell of a lot more than four dollars a month but based on my actually had a previous podcast interview for this podcast with someone who is using this platform really successfully. It's not like that kind of one to one communication even though it is protected. You're you're exactly right. I mean it certainly doesn't have to be. I mean it can be. It can be his intimate reconvened as scalable as you like to be able to make it And you know. Certainly i mean we outfit Any of our hosts with tools to be able to respond to people. Wanna wanna really quick. And seamless way and so if that's refunding templates that's sharing media if that's creating addressable audiences within the platform based on what people have identified as their affinities so you can send better tailored messaging to larger groups. Those are all things you can do. But the truth of the matter is that there's no expectation at every single individual message. Be responded to one on one with us in.
What Is Going on With OnlyFans?
"I was going to talk about the events situation at the top of this week. Show but the only fan situation seems resolved itself only fans is a platform where people can subscribe to content creators who then share exclusive photos and videos on the side. It's a site worth billions. Thanks to the sex workers and porn performer. The platform marketed itself to recruited when it first launched in two thousand sixteen and then a week ago only fans announced it was banning all sexually explicit content from its site because banks credit card. Companies processors were forcing them to they reversed course in a week. Only fans turned around and said a week later. Basically we hear you and announced that they weren't gonna ban sexually explicit content after all and would no longer be pivoting who. I don't know what what they plan to pivot to the week. Before last based tune teenagers doing lip syncs and cooking tutorials and other shit people can get for free on youtube and dick doc right now. How are you going to make money at that. But that was their plan a week and a half ago. What seems to have made the difference here. And what. I see as a sign of real progress the new york times washington post. Cnn daily papers. Npr mainstream publications went to sex workers and porn stars to get quotes about how only fans was doing to them. What facebook and instagram and craigslist had already done to them and how this being driven off the internet was making their lives harder and sex work more dangerous not a radical sex work not ending it just making it more dangerous. That's new and it made a huge difference. Abigail higgins has a terrific piece at the lily. Sex workers rallied together when only fans band sexually explicit content. They believed their voices are finally being heard. That's the headline. go read it. I'm not the only one who thinks that this new development reporters talking to sex workers about sex work is making a difference is creating some sort of seismic shift some

What Is Link Rot?
"What exactly is link. Rot so link. Rod is an umbrella term. For what happens when you're surfing the web and you click on a link and the content that opens up on the other end either is completely gone or it has changed in a way that you weren't expecting a lot of users of the weber familiar with that dreaded four four page not found error and. That's the prime example of link up in a lot of ways it's part of the design of the internet. One of the most powerful things about the web is that it's a place where the most up-to-date information can exist and where content creators can be in control of what they're putting out into the world. It allows people to be constantly improving their websites and changing the way that they have users navigate their websites. There's also things like new internet protocols that happened that changed the way website works which can break links. Sometimes people sell the domains that they manage or they just stop paying them which causes them to go down. There's all sorts of reasons and again it's kind of just a inevitable part of the internet a lot of ways. Our team talks a lot about the dilemma of the internet. Being that like the thing that you want to disappear like that really embarrassing photos that you took in two thousand four is always gonna stick around and be somewhere on the web but the thing that you actually need is going to be lost forever
Using Content to Grow a Loyal Audience with Author Joe Pulizzi
"What is the essence. What is the heart. What is the soul of the content inc model so basically it's seven steps. It's sweet spot. The content tilt building the base. Then you focus on audience building. Then you drive your first stage of revenue and diversify into other areas other platforms and then the end one is used either sell or you go big or you create an amazing lifestyle. Business like you have with with fire nation. The couple things that i wanna talk about that are really important and things that we found that a lot of people might not agree with because it might not make sense but the one thing is the base the focus on one platform over and over again we find these content entrepreneurs were building multimillion dollar enterprises. They're not everywhere they are on youtube or twitch or they have a podcast or they have an amazing email newsletter. They're not doing everything at one time now. Later down the road that's the thing that's called diversification that step six but you have to build a minimum viable audience. I so that's that third step. That's really important and then two big issues in the model or one that the thing that i get the questions on most of the time jail diese sink called the content tilt and the content tilt is something that everyone has to have but most content creators don't and that's an area of differentiation. It's an area of little to no competition on the web where you actually have a chance to break through so that means you have to focus on a different topic. You have to focus on a different audience type. You have to focus on a different platform. You have to tell a different story it. You can't talk about the same old things that everyone else is talking about in the same way like for you. I mean you did a great job. There were really no entrepreneur. Podcast that were daily when you started your thing and you knew that you saw that as your Opportunity and that became your content. Tilt so with me you know when we started content marketing institute our whole thing was hey. Can we build a category and call at content marketing. Nobody was using that term. But we went into that. We've focused all of our efforts on content marketing and three years. Later we built a million dollar enterprise but it a lot of people forget that all. I can't just talk about the same old thing. Or this is what i love and this is what i know. No you have to figure out what the audience is. Pain points are what keep keeps them up at night. And then you can figure out how you're going to position your content around

Yeah i mean ward has definitely awarded as this online community that i started on slack. I wouldn't say that. I necessarily maintain it because it's definitely a community effort. But i started it. Because i was seeing so many amazing comments in conversations that were happening in the comment section on top of like my inbox. Dmz being constantly filled with people being like asking me for advice. And i just felt like a walking therapist sometimes unsolicited -ly so it'd be like receiving trauma dumps in your inbox. While you're driving is kind of like oh my god. I accidentally opened this. And it's like a trauma and i can't leave this person on red but i'm driving i. I'm not do that would happen to me a lot. I just felt so bad. I was like i was holding people's like trauma and guilt. Yeah two point whereas like there needs to be another arena where this air dow. That's not directed towards me. And so i started to slack group. And it's so funny. 'cause i recently found this email but i emailed slack because as i was like building out idea ward. Where should it live. So i emailed flack and i was like hey i think blake. I wanna start a community. I think like a hundred people are going to be in. What sort of like plans are there and would it. Support one hundred people having conversations and just do it. I was like okay so he did a. And now there's like seven thousand people in it or have signed up for it. Yeah and especially in the pandemic that's like when ward was like popping off. We were just online all day every day aden just like creating beautiful friendships and it was really fun and you know with all great things. Come to a bubble and ahead and it hits the point where it needs to evolve. In part of the evolution process was like how i originally structured out the hierarchy of moderators and how that actually became less productive than it was intended again. Intent versus impact. What happened it was just like the way it was structured. Was like i was sort of at the top and like maude sort of felt like they had to wait for my approval for something you know. It's just like any sort of hierarchical political things that could happen. And it was like within our own little little bubble on the internet. and it's sort of like imploded. so it's like removing into community modding and you know. There's still so much work that i need to do with ward as far as building foundations and rules and stuff. But i just haven't had the emotional capacity to do so and that goes again with like you know. Sometimes being inconsistent is consistent that is like a big part about building community and then creating a very intentional space. Because there's a difference between having youtube comments and then having a slack that's like all we're going to be doing is talking guys. Yeah to. I love creative. Yeah and it's one of the best parts of iowa creatives but it's also one of the most emotionally draining parts..
"content creator" Discussed on Girlboss Radio with Sophia Amoruso
"Always love watching rachel's work because one it's raw and feels uniquely her but on the other end. It's also approachable and something that i understand and it's like a really good song that you can dance to because it's approachable but it's also like this hits and as we've been making this course together. I've really been peeling back. The layers of how she thinks and the questions that she asks and what i love is that she's down a clown she's like. Yeah you wanna talk about that. Let's go there. Let's open my brain and want to know how she thinks about creating content not just for brands but also for herself because creating an online presence. It just doesn't come easy and then even once you've quote figured it out you eventually get bored of it and in this episode we talk about how to evolve as a content creator because i mean let's face it trying to evolve publicly online. It's a process. It's something that were very critical about and we judge. I do it myself but at the same time when we try to do it for ourselves. It's really hard or all evolving. Darwin got it. We've been evolving but on the internet. You can see it. You can see it in your feed. You can see it in your tweets. You can see it in your videos that you've created the evolution of who you are. It's incredibly visible whether it's content creation or you're just trying to do something a little bit more creative in your life. You hit roadblocks and you feel defeated by it. I've met so many people at isle of creatives that want to be more creative and want to make things and want to share their perspective. But sometimes it's really hard for them to do that whether you're already content creator or you're out there listening right now and feeling like you just wanna make and build and be creative and share your perspective but there's just been this hesitation this episode is for you. 'cause they swear. Every time i talked to rachel i m always pumped and then i always want to. Just go out and make something so..
"content creator" Discussed on Girlboss Radio with Sophia Amoruso
"Puno. I'm the founder of. I love creatives and this is girl boss radio. I am very excited to start off every episode with. I'm very excited and all right but this one i am. It's because i'm bringing on a friend a creative collaborator and someone that really inspires me. Her name did it. Is rachel newin and some of you might know her. She goes by that she on youtube in instagram. But it doesn't matter if you know her or not because you're gonna get an owner. You'll hear about this more in the episode but she grew up as a blogger on blog spot and has seen the evolution of influencers content creator and has herself gone from influenced her to contact creator to youtuber and she has been experimenting and playing on the internet and making a living on the internet and making a living being a personality being an influence or creating content on the internet. And that's a tricky thing. Reason why i wanted to bring rachel onto the show was because i'm fascinated by how she approaches content creation right before cove did. I was actually in peru with her. And you know when you're traveling with someone. You're spending a lot of time and we would just always talk about the creative process and then we're like we should make a course about as a content creator. What is her creative process. Started writing down notes and one thing led to another and we decided that we were gonna make a course actually a gigantic workbook about her creative process. I've been so inspired by how she approaches content creation. Rachel is down to share everything. She knows which is rare and as of course greater. I was like yo if you're down to share everything let's do this and let's get every single part of the process from how you create content. How you think about it. How you program your content to making briefs to executing editing too pitching collaborating to what you write enough reagan. Email to everything you know. This industry is really new and one. You kind of feel like an impostor. Because you're just like wait a minute. I just figured this out two years ago but also that's how you make money so in this season we wanted to show different versions of success but as a teacher as an online course creator. It was really important that we give next steps. And the way that i wanted to do that was by talking to people that are naturally transparent and down to share and they think you've felt that with kaley mic lloyd when we talked about digital ecomarketing and taylor lorenzo when we talked about social media. I think one of the places where we can really break down barriers is by sharing as much of the nitty gritty information. And not just all this info stuff. You know what i'm saying. We need to talk about the nuances of jobs. That don't necessarily have an answer or a list ical. That's why today. We have rachel who happens to be one of my favorite video content creators and also is just like a great friend..
Why Accessibility Is Important to Podcasting With Bri Moore of 'Power Not Pity'
"Why is accessibility important. Podcasting well from a content creator perspective. You're listening you're missing listenership. Sales different points of views and accessibility is also important because it promotes more inclusion and means that more people will be able to play a larger part in the conversations around what are happening.

"content creator" Discussed on MarTech Podcast
"I am ben amazed and ensuring you have to in the past year. The advanced. That have happened within ai. And i met with a fabio and it was really impressive to me that they are creating content. Be a not people. Writing is a hundred percent. Ai created and that notion that you can create in that way versus staggering as second as you read it and you go through all of the different newsletters that they have. It is absolutely impressive. Yeah i mean. I think that the artificial intelligence ability to understand signals in data is obviously something that humans can't compete with looking at the data. You can collect out of a social media network. How many times somebody tweets who that person is. What is the responsiveness of their audience to that content those all create data signals. And you essentially package up that information to figure out what is the most interesting content on the flip side. There's another model which i mentioned earlier. Brian lead up from the sounds. Profitable podcast something that i follow which is following the ad tech in the podcast industry. Somebody's got to create the content themselves. And that's an example of a creator pouring blood sweat and tears over an industry that they want so at some point you have to have the subject matter experts to filter so the answer is probably we need both. We need creators to create content than than we need artificial intelligence to sort through all the crap to figure out what's good to deliver it to the right person and the artificial intelligence is also creating the content it gets reinforcement by who is clicking on. What and figuring out. What kind of content should be sorted at wax. that there is no editor at essentials. At bobbio there are people who run the business people sales etc but it is a i within creative entity so the machines are taking over and they're creating the content now is this I think that there's two types of content. There is a link roundup. Hey we've gone through the internet. We've we figured out what the biggest best links are. We're gonna package those up and send them in a newsletter and that provides value because we're filtering through all the crap to bring you our audience the content that you want. That's why you subscribe to the newsletter. The part that's the most interesting. You don't need a writer to that right. So the artificial intelligence is printing link round as opposed to being the content creator. There's still somebody writing the underlying articles. Yes okay good. I thought the artificial intelligence was writing the story that actually seen recently. I forgot what the brand was. But basically you write one sentence and the machine will write the rest of the article service which sounds great in theory and terrifying and others. Where just one step closer to being terminator two right. That is just me stare. Yes on the flip side here. You're using the power of artificial intelligence to comb through a lot of data and circulate. What is the most interesting. You don't need an editor for that talk to me about the value created from the link roundup type of newsletter and how that's different from the essentially pushed blog post. I think able see across the web the recognize it they read. It can't break up. One story from another click on it separate abundant all kind of encased in one series and i think from the perspective of brands you have the ability to kind of create. Whatever you want the sheer bonham of topics that we can get through a Makes the back office much cleaner simpler and more efficient. So we're able to distill down. The best from the internet artificial intelligence is going to help us. Circulate that when you think about what topics and what use cases that this type of content is useful for you. Mentioned future of work leadership cybersecurity. It seems like these are kind of big meaty topics where there's lots of evolution as opposed to topic. Maybe that's a little bit more. Subjective like the arts sports. Maybe i wanna opinion pieces in sports you know. Dc trends in. What is a good opinion driven newsletter. As opposed to what is a good link roundups down newsletter and advocating their case. That former we'd be better than the ladder but or ladder. Which is kind of syndication. I it's moving along credibly quickly. I think at the end of the day there is a time and a place for both types of newsletters. And i think that as a creator you have to sort of understand. A. what your capabilities are. If you're an excellent writer and your going to be building your medium as a newsletter creator you probably want to put more of an editorial touch in your content. And that's a great way to take your thoughts and distribute them to a large audience and the flipside a brand like ours where content creators. We're just more suited to create audio. Where a better podcast house and not a great series of writers. We have some writers at work on our staff. But it's not our core competency. So when i think about newsletters and a topic like martic i wanna take content from all the influencers that are around and be able to debate and discuss it publicly on the podcast. I think there's value people are trying to stay up to date with the given topic. That's where the link roundup ends up being valuable. And that wraps up. This episode of the mar tech podcast.

Everything from product design to content creation has the european knowing so far. Ooh the years actually ran pretty good. We actually had a nice growth year not in terms of state business. Businesses always been pretty standard even when we went through the trials and tribulations that code. But i think i broaden young folks for the first time and made it official last year so we had some growing pains in terms of people just learning how to be creative in like sort of corporate settings knock corporate setting so that was very new to a lot of us and having agency. Don't like that this year has been. I think an extension of that banana. Everything's opening when the team is definitely more seasons. Surround more exciting because of things i know we can take off so it's been pretty good. I mean i'm i'm pretty sure. People listening can hear the birds in the background.

Business Reputation Hackers Secrets With Objection Co. Founder Curtis Boyd
"Talk to me about some of the reputation. Hackers secrets our people building managing and monitoring their reputation. There's kind of two angles at this reputation hacker stuff the first is for building reputations positively even though all synthetic and fake at the end of the day it's positive businesses essentially saying. Hey i'm having a hard time. Getting my customers write reviews normally s because of the lack of intention about providing an amazing experience honestly like businesses. Who are really shelling out. Amazing experiences have no problem generating tons of reviews so for those companies who just don't wanna muster the reputation. Fortitude really are being intentional about providing amazing customer experience. They'd rather spend a few hundred bucks online and go buy some reviews and compete in the marketplace unfortunately more and more people who sell fake reviews. They're starting the sell one-star reviews for competitors. So when you place in order for twenty or thirty positive five star reviews. They're gonna start saying. Hey how about one or two or three negative one star reviews for your competitors in your local market on. We add that to the menu and they found out that they could actually charge a lot more for it so they only charge ten to fifteen bucks for a fake google review since i left. Check yesterday on twenty different sites. They're charging fifty to one hundred dollars for a one star review for your competitors because that's the equivalent of five negative reviews right if when you give it one star. You're taken off a star from four other reviews and anything under five stars looks bad. It's actually eleven to one. So for every one star review get e need eleven. Good wants to mitigate that damage all right so the bad guys the guys that are selling the reviews the synthetic content creators. they're charging a premium to help. You denigrated your competition. That's one secret a dirty one. Also not very good for karma. What are some of the other reputation. Secrets reputation hacker secrets. Well there's a lot of clicking going on just as you said like in podcast yesterday like you can enhance your rating by getting downloads. Because that shows engagement that shows interest the same thing is happening and local listings where people will sell packages that include like synthetic clicks and synthetic traffic to try and drive more engagement on even listing sites like google to try to push people up and it's more benign than fake reviews itself. But it's still interesting to see people offering these tertiary services to try and manipulate these search engines in their algorithms to say. Hey these guys are more relevant and these guys are maybe a better fit for what you're searching

Identify how to create the most compelling content space in the marketplace in six years since i published content revolution. There'd be many changes in the area of content particularly moving the needle away from a focus on business promotion rhetoric at the star of the book. I told a story about a make believe kingdom and how a shift was happening away from those who had the riches and controlled the land to the farmers who worked on own pockets of land over time. The farmers learn how to cultivate the land in a better way to attract others to buy the crops and the story says as the new became more fertile the respect for mothers increased. They could see that the marketplace was growing what was gradually becoming evident was a movement from an old system that was based on hierarchy an inheritance to one of a flatter structure could be implemented faster pace in democracy was built where the focus is more developing individual relationships and alliances make. Now i think at the time. I just binge-watch three seasons. A game of thrones wanted to highlight was the way everyone had behaved had been the same for decades and people accepted their place in the ecosystem. Those have deep pockets.
