VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISEDA 1-year-old puppy is fighting for her life after she was dropped off at a West Palm Beach animal hospital with her mouth bound shut.Volunteers at Paws 2 Help said two women dropped Pixie off over the weekend, but neither would explain how Pixie wound up with an elastic band wrapped tightly around her mouth. They did say she wouldn’t stop barking before they quickly left.The veterinarians at Paws 2 Help said the next 18 hours for Pixie are critical. “She smelled like rotten meat, so I knew we had dead tissue right there on her face somewhere,” said Dr. Lisa Matthews.Graphic photos show deep cuts around the Yorkie mix’s nose, as well as unkempt and matted fur.“I don’t know who put this around her snout, but somebody did, and they hurt her,” Matthews said.The puppy is slowly showing signs of improvement after only a couple of days at the animal hospital.

Meredith Prez—On Crutches—Explains Why Their Whitebread Titles Had to Change

first_imgMeredith president Jack Griffin is tough. He showed up at the FOLIO: Publishing Summit in Miami to deliver his keynote this morning on crutches following emergency surgery on a broken leg he suffered a year ago, having lost his cellphone somewhere between LaGuardia and the Doral. And, like a seasoned prize fighter, he landed some key jabs on the state of the magazine business, through the lens of a Des Moines, Iowa publisher Griffin said was “founded on the social construct of Dad at work, Mom at home, Chevy in the driveway.”The company was “founded on the social construct of Dad at work, Mom at home, Chevy in the driveway.” Which looks nothing like America in 2008, particularly in its ethnic makeup. For a company that publishes “white-bread” magazines, he said, “the change has been quite provocative.”How provocative? Since 2002, they’ve spent roughly $600 million on launches (print and Web) and acquisitions, cobbled together an nice interactive marketing business. And despite some big successes (Griffin said Better Homes and Gardens had its best year ever in 2007), it’s not all grits and gravy. In November, Meredith’s stock price was at $63 per share. Yesterday’s closing price? “Forty-six dollars” he said. SEE RELATED VIDEO Q+A: Griffin at the 2008 FOLIO: Publishing Summitlast_img read more

McGrawHill Cut 375 Jobs in Fourth Quarter

first_imgIn another cost-cutting effort, BusinessWeek publisher the McGraw-Hill Company today said it eliminated 375 positions company-wide during the fourth quarter. Seventy of those came from its information and media division.The majority of the cuts—215—come from the company’s education division. Fifty employees were cut from its financial services group and 40 were let go from corporate.The cuts represent less than 2 percent of McGraw-Hill’s overall workforce, a spokesperson told FOLIO:. “Our diverse portfolio of businesses and ongoing cost containment efforts have helped lessen the impact of challenging economic conditions in 2008,” McGraw-Hill president and CEO Harold McGraw III said in a statement. “The actions we are announcing today are a continuation of these efforts and will help us continue to manage the company efficiently through a difficult environment while taking all necessary steps to better serve our customer and shareholders.”In its third quarter financial statement, the company said it slashed 270 jobs company-wide—140 coming from the information and media division.

MediaNext WrapUp

first_imgIn sales and marketing, Stephen Acunto, account manager with Hearst Men’s Group, and Jackie Ghedine, associate publisher with Ad Age, echoed the comments of Beth Tomkiw, EVP and chief creative officer at what is now TMG/McMurry. Content marketing, they agree, will emerge as a go-to marketing solution in 2013. During the Data, Sales & Audience Monetization track, a heavy emphasis was placed on building a highly engaged community of readers, followers, fans and customers to reach business objectives that support generating revenue and capturing valuable insights. From paid online content models, to generating revenue from Twitter engagement, the track aimed to deliver specific takeaways to help professionals leverage their key asset: their audience.One particularly interesting session was lead by Steve Ennen, president and chief intelligence officer for SocialStrategy1. He contented that magazines are the stagecoaches from yesteryear—an outdated vehicle for spreading information. Ennen argued that publishers must rethink and restructure their businesses at every level. Distribution is no longer about the mailman, he said, but about network effects, sharing, and the fluid channels of social media. “Social media is so powerful it topples governments,” said Ennen. “Why would you think it couldn’t help your media company?”The opportunity, he said, is a proliferation of revenue channels and readers, empowering publishers in ways they still cannot imagine.In the session “Integrated Sales in a Three-Screen Era” in the Media Mashup track, Elena Sukacheva, The Economist’s vice president of strategy and client solutions, noted that her team primarily drives the creative process of building an integrated package. “Agencies give us big ideas, they don’t care what it is. They just want us to make it big and unique,” she said. Accordingly, the team leverages all of The Economist’s brand platforms. A recent campaign for BMW, for example, included print, digital, video and live events—as well as a partnership with Bon Appétit.Later in that session, Cygnus Business Media’s senior vice president of business development Blair Johnson described the company’s new Engagement Report, which leverages detailed analytics to measure the exposure and consumption of each of a client’s messaging elements. The company then carefully trains the sales team to present the report to the client in an effort to help them better steer the campaign to the client’s actual goals. “At the very least, the Engagement report is getting our sales people in the door,” said Johnson. One session in the Content and Brand Marketing track featured Betsy Frank and Barry Martin, who are “research and insights officers” with Time Inc. Their jobs are to figure out how Time Inc. editors can relate better to readers. Explaining one recent research project in which they used biometrics, they took a group of Digital Natives (people under 30 who presumably were born into a digital world) and another group of Digital Immigrants (people over 30 who had to get used to it), gave them glasses with video cameras built in and recorded every type of media they used during their non-working hours.As a consequence of their research, Frank and Martin’s best advice to Time Inc.’s editors about how to engage their Native readers? “Make it quick, make it easy and make it emotional.”It may not be the advice their Immigrant editors want to hear, but it’s what they’re going to have to do if they want to keep their publications alive.Two publishing executives noted that their events programs generate substantial revenue, serve their readers in a way that print and digital publishing can’t, and extend and reinforce their brands.In the conference session titled “Conferences, Meet-ups, Mixers and Summits,” The Atlantic Editor-in-Chief Steve Clemons and Computerworld Vice President and Publisher John Amato agreed that the wide variety of events they hold are all profitable.“In fact, it generates more revenue than anything else we do,” Clemons said, “including the magazine.”For specific keynote session coverage, visit:• MediaNext Show: Thriving in the Age of Transformation• MediaNext: LinkedIn Executive Editor Dan Roth Shares• MediaNext: From Upstart to Powerhouse• MediaNext: Scaling Quality Journalism FOLIO:’s MediaNext event concluded today in New York. With about 1,000 in attendance the show examined all the ways publishers are evolving into true multiplatform media companies. With keynotes from LinkedIn’s Dan Roth, Business Insider’s Henry Blodget, Vox Media’s James Bankoff and Meredith’s Tom Harty, as well as four tracks dedicated to the various strategic channels publishers are leveraging, event content sat right at the intersection of where “traditional” meets digital.Al DiGuido, president of Optimus Publishing, kicked off the Magazine Media Core Skills track with a lesson he learned at his first job as a 13-year-old store clerk in Brooklyn. DiGuido’s store—surrounded by larger, cheaper competitors—would put a Tootsie Roll in the bag of each customer. Donning an apron and doling out candy, DiGuido reminded publishers to offer a unique selling proposition.  “Legacy media has not been aggressive enough in modifying value proposition,” he argued.Samir Husni, the director of the Magazine Innovation Center at the University of Mississippi, presented an optimistic view of the industry, despite its tendency toward the negative—“Nobody talks as much as we do about our own demise,” he says. Husni ran through the more than 800 magazine launches of the past year, stopping to highlight several of the more amusing. His point was larger though. Though many were alarmed print been passed by other forms of media, that doesn’t mean it will go away. Print ad revenues bypassed radio in 1935; television bypassed radio in 1955—after playing third-fiddle for more than a half-century, radio is still relevant.last_img read more

Complex Media Acquires Mens Apparel Media Company Sole Collector

first_imgComplex Media, a multimedia network of entertainment, sports and lifestyle properties, has acquired Sole Collector, a consumer sneaker website, iPad monthly and quarterly print magazine. Though Complex Media posted a record 66 million unique visitors and 735 million pageviews in February, with over 30 percent of its traffic generated via social platforms, the company’s CEO says the acquisition fills a gap in the group’s portfolio.“This acquisition checks a lot of boxes for us,” CEO Rich Antoniello tells FOLIO:. “When we go into a category, we don’t participate with one or two sites but we go very deep. We also try to close categories out if we can—whether it’s style, sneakers or music—we want to go as deep and specific as possible. Sole Collector has been around in the sneaker game longer than anyone else has and it’s a name that means so much, both on a qualitative and quantitative basis from an SEO perspective.”Sole Collector was founded 10 years ago by Steve Mullholand, and is based in Portland, Oregon. According to Google Analytics, the site generates 4.4 million unique monthly visitors and has the world’s largest online sneaker forum, with over 385,000 members. Sole Collector offers a sneaker database with over 15,000 listings, publishes the quarterly Sole Collector print magazine and each month publishes Sole magazine on the iPad. Antoniello declined to comment on financial terms of the deal.He says that Mullholand first approached Complex about the acquisition, adding the company plans to pour resources and business intelligence into Sole Collector to foster growth at an accelerated pace. As of right now the staff is expected to be maintained.“They have some very strong numbers but we feel like we can double the size of the site from a reach and engagement perspective, but that’s just a small piece,” says Antoniello. “They’re one of the last sneaker sites out there and one of the most respected—it would take us years to build our own property like this and get to this point.”He adds that Complex.com and Complex Magazine, as well as the company’s more than 90 properties within the group’s portfolio, have always been designed to serve product and style-focused men. In the long-term, he says the company plans to stay very focused on the same demographic and introduce a diversified revenue stream. Antoniello says the company did a soft launch on video initiatives in January and plans to get more aggressive in the space. Additionally, he says that the company will also role out “a fairly significant” e-commerce effort in the fourth quarter of 2013, and plans to include Sole Collector in the process.“They fit very nicely into all of our new initiatives—a pageview isn’t just a pageview when it comes to Sole Collector,” he says. “When you’re that focused on sneakers and you’re disproportionately one of the most respected sites out there, the ability for you to drive conversion at the bottom of the funnel is very large. They’ve never scratched the surface there and we feel we can go very deep for that.”If you’re looking to better understand how your brands can thrive in a converged media landscape, register now for FOLIO: and min’s MediaMashup event on April 16 in New York.  Stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, follow us on Facebook & Twitter!last_img read more
