Will Video Kill Your Blog Network?
In case you haven’t noticed “The Next Big Thing” on the web is already here. And it’s not RSS or Podcasting.
It’s not the future. It’s right now.
But the real question is how will this video explosion effect your blog network content?
The answer seems kinda obvious. You need to step up your game. Your job is to provide relevent, entertaining content which you can profit off of.
If the kid down the street is producing something more interesting than you, then you have a problem.
Now the video revolution is only effecting a small number so far. But this is the internet. In six months it will be ubiquitous.
Let me be real. It won’t be long before someone start doing all these niche sites you are creating in a video form. People will still visit text pages but they will soon be expecting video.
Because the kids will and as I was taught a long time ago, 13 year old white girls run the world.
Those girls don’t care about RSS or Podcasting. Pictures and Video and Chat and Social Networks they love. (And that’s why they are all very popular on the net.)
So if you are a writer, start learning about producing other forms of content. Taking your talent on the page and remixing it for other formats.
If you are a blog network owner, it’s time for you to start planning for the future and figuring out how you are going to capitalize on it. It will change the way you think about your network and your advertisers. (See why I wanted you to dump the Google ads). Some of the smarter network owners have already been thinking about this for a while.
But some things won’t change. You will still need a targeted audience. You will still need compelling content. You still are going to have to make that content available on many platforms.
You just gotta be ready for your close up.blog media, blog networks, FireAnt, mobile, money, old media, research, Revver, video, vSocial, Weblog, writers, YouTube
