Time for the Publisher INsider where we highlight some of the most INovative, INteresting and INspirational content providers that are part of Newstex Blogs On Demand and Video On Demand.
This month, the Publisher INsider profiles Daisy Whitney’s New Media Minute whose video content is offered through Newstex Video On Demand.
Daisy Whitney is one of the first journalists to launch an online newscast that focuses on the business of Internet video — Daisy Whitney’s New Media Minute. In her videos, Daisy discusses social networking, YouTube, iTunes, and other forms of online video and content distribution. Daisy is a natural in front of the camera, and she brings a broad background in business and new media with her to her video content. She can be found writing and speaking about new media in a variety of places such as Advertising Age and Beet.tv, and she has appeared on or been interviewed for a variety of online and offline publications and programs such as CNN’s Showbiz Tonight and CNBC’s Closing Bell.
In addition to her new media background, Daisy is also an author having written both young adult novels and commercial women’s fiction. It’s not surprising that she brings her knowledge of and interest in publishing to her videos, which gives them a unique perspective. For example, some of Daisy’s recent videos for New Media Minute focused on topics such as how to make six-figure income on YouTube and YouTube’s new moneymaking strategy, as well as subjects like what women want from new media and how publishers are trying to keep up with the digital age with author websites and multimedia books. Suffice it to say, Daisy Whitney’s videos are informative and very original.
To keep her videos interesting, Daisy doesn’t always film herself in the same place. In recent videos she took to the streets and even filmed in her backyard. The change of scenery makes the videos more personal and less corporate but doesn’t detract from Daisy’s expertise or her authoritative content. I love that her videos are typically under a few minutes in length (often under one minute) yet tell a complete story filled with snippets of interesting and useful information. Daisy creates several new videos each month, so there is always something new to see and learn on New Media Minute.
