A PlayOn Review From An Internet Only TV Customer - 23 Aug 2016 03:49

[[html]]<img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="http://www.laneterralever.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/social-media-apps.jpg" width="345" /><br><br>My Personal Experience With The PlayOn.TV Software<br><br>Like many of you I know a thing or two about biased reviews online. I have read many of them and I have even written a few of them in my day. This however is a genuine PlayOn customer review coming from a person that has owned and used a lifetime license of the PlayOn media server software since January of 2012.<br><br>Why I Bought PlayOn In The First PlaceTo start off I'll first tell you in summary why I decided to buy PlayOn in the first place. At the time I had never heard of the company nor did I have any idea how to use a media server in the first place.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/vK-wwiIrYzw&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/vK-wwiIrYzw&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>For Christmas back in 2011 a family member (my uncle) gave my wife and I a Roku box. We had no idea what it was but he told us that if we use it we might decide that cutting cable would be an option. Like many people out there the idea of eliminating a $85 monthly bill was appealing.<br><br>When we started playing around with the Roku we quickly realized that to make the box work for us we would have to use it in tandem with our existing NetFlix subscription and a yet to be purchased Hulu+ subscription.<br><br>During a free trial to Hulu Plus we learned that CBS shows weren't available at all. This was a shock since we watch quite a few CBS shows. For a brief moment we figured no way would be dropping cable. We didn't want to pay for each show individually through Amazon Prime so it just didn't seem worth it.<br><br>Just a couple days later though, in a forum somewhere on the net, I found a reference to a company called PlayOn.TV which sold an inexpensive piece of software that allowed you stream CBS shows to the Roku box. At the time there was a 7-day free trial offer so I signed up to give it a try.<br><br>Long story short - we got what we were looking for and decided to pay for the lifetime licese instead of a monthly recurring fee. It wasn't that much and was about half thr price of what we were paying for cable anyway - it made sense.<br><br>An Older PlayOn Installation Video<br><br>The video above was published prior to me even owning PlayOn. Since then there is no free trial but the prices for the software have come down a bit and they now offer a 30-day money back guarantee.<br><br>To use the software you need a Windows based computer for installation and it has to be running to "serve" media from your internet conection to your TV box.<br><br>The most common devices that PlayOn serves content to include the Roku boxes and Google TV boxes, the top tier gaming systems such as the XBox, PS3, Wii, and most of the common mobile devices such as the IPhone, IPad, and Android devices. The software is also compatible with numerous other devices and even some smart TVs.<br><br>Of them all I recommend the Roku box because it has probably the most versatility of all the settop boxes and it costs far less than any other option.<br><br><img src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41RtV9KXtRL.jpg" class="amazonBigImage"/><br><br>Roku 2 XS 1080p Streaming Player (Old Model)<br><br>Amazon Price: $89.99 $64.82 <br><br>Buy Now<br><br>(price as of Jul 17, 2016)<br><br>The Roku 2 XS is a top of the line HD box. We still use one of the older models from mid-2011 but they all offer so much content programming options that you'll forget what you have access to if you're not careful.<br><br>Why Is PlayOn Worth The Money?<br><br>In very short terms I'll say this - if you have significant computer skills I know you can build your own media serving software yourself and stream your own content to your living room but I simply don't know how to do that. It'e very complicated and out of the realm of possabilities for most people.<br><br>If on the other hand you are like the other 99% of the population who just wants all their favorite shows without havign to pay for a bloated cable bill month after month after month then I think it is worth it.<br><br>For starters a Roku box gives you acess to lots of free content but the majority of the best stuff (that's easy to get) requires a Hulu Plus subscription for current TV shows and a NetFlix Instant Download subscription for older TV shows (seasons) and a boatload of movies.<br><br>What you don't realize right off the bat however is that many shows simply aren't available to Hulu and unless you want to wait a couple years for them to show up on Netflix you need another solution.<br><br>PlayOn has a huge list of channels built in but they also have a place for you to instal third-party plugin channels. These third party plugins are very simple to instal and they bring acess to just about everything you could think of.<br><br>As I write this page it's just a couple days after the Super Bowl aired. I was even able to watch the 2013 Super Bowl live through a 3rd party PlayOn channel that cost me nothing but 3 minutes of instalation time.<br><br>The Biggest Problem With PlayOn<br><br>This is the biggest problem I've had with the software after using it for roughly 13 months. Because you are streaming internet video accros your home network it is not in HD quality by the time it gets to your TV screen.<br><br>The quality is degraded a bit by internet connection speed and the speed of your home network. For us this doesn't effect us too much but for those people who demand HD quality video at all times then you are either going to have to settle for a cable bill of for paying for shows individually on Amazon I think.<br><br>For 13 months now my wife and I simply understand that if we watch something through PlayOn we have to expect basic definition programming, similar to what you used to get on TV in the 90s.<br><br>The only other small issue is that the PC PlayOn is running on has to be on for the software to work. Ours is always on but I know a lot of people like shutting ther computers down frequently.<br><br>This Thing Saves Us $$$$ Month After Month<br><br>It Always Comes Down To Money<br><br>In the end however at around $40-$70 (depending on what you buy) we've had far more enjoyment out of our PlayOn lifetime software license than we could have expected. We use it more frequently all the time and now that we've got a toddler running around the house it makes finding the newest cartoons so much easier.<br><br>There's a lot more to be said for using PlayOn's moe robust and advanced features but those are things we haven't even used in 13 months of use. PlayLater is one of the company's other products which you can buy with the basic PlayOn software but I've never used it. In the future I'll update this article (or post a new one) if I ever experiment with it.<br><br>If you want to research some of the nitty gritty details then head over to their site and check out the fine print and FAQs.<br><br><a href="http://suara.com">Berita Hari Ini</a>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

The Difference Between Traditional and Social Media Marketing - 22 Aug 2016 17:01

Tags:

[[html]]<img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="http://www.oilbusinessmastery.com/images/Social-Media-image.jpg" width="294" /><br><br>I sat on the sofa this morning during Saturday morning cartoons trying to explain Twitter to my 8-year-old son when he asked a good question. "Daddy," he asked, "Isn't Twitter a lot like broadcast but only on the Internet?" (Did I mention the kid is brilliant, loves all things related to computers and electronics and has to endure a marketing guy as a father?)<br><br>That's when it hit me.<br><br>The old days of traditional media saw marketers sending marketing messages out to a great many people in the hopes that the messages would resonate with the right group and cause them to take action of some sort. Sure there was targeting and market segmentation as much as could be achieved with the available media, but sending a broadcast message out was the way to reach your target audience. Kind of like carpet bombing in the right general area.<br><br>Unfortunately, in the process a lot of uninterested people also heard those messages and that is what gave marketing and advertising bad reputations.<br><br>The difference between traditional marketing and social media marketing (SMM) is this: Traditional marketing sent messages to an audience that contained people who just did not care about what was being offered.<br><br>Social media marketing, on the other hand, attempts to attract an interested audience through dialog and engagement first and then targets them with relevant marketing messages of interest to them.<br><br>Think of SMM like permission-based marketing except instead of people opting-in to your mailing list they actively follow what you have to say through networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, blogs, YouTube and other sites that allow social interaction. Instead of uninterested parties opting-out of your mailing list they simply stop listening to you or stop following what you say.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/AN-kIJI_5wg&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/AN-kIJI_5wg&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>It isn't rocket science but what remains is the same challenge for marketers: Find the right people who want to hear what you have to say and engage them in a conversation. The Internet just makes it a lot easier than it used to be.<br><br>For those marketers currently trying to attract as many Twitter followers as possible or as many social networking fans as possible please keep history in mind. When you try to build quantity instead of quality you are repeating the mistakes of marketing history and trying to turn a one-to-one medium into a broadcast medium that puts your message in front of many of the wrong people.<br><br>Provide value and give some of it away first and the right people will find you, follow you and be receptive to parting with their dollars to receive more of what you have to offer.<br><br>It really is just that simple.<br><br><a href="http://suara.com">Berita Hari Ini</a>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

Pros And Cons Of Internet Advertising - 07 Aug 2016 04:15

Tags:

[[html]]<img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="https://socwork.wisc.edu/files/social-media-logos_15773.png" width="318" /><br><br>Regardless of the promotion package, Internet ad media plays an important role in determining the success of your product or service awareness on-line. <br><br>What are their advantages over other established media such as selling TV ads? <br><br>Advantages <br><br>1: Low-Cost <br><br>Even if the Internet ad can be displayed as very comprehensive compared to other media, it is definitely much cheaper than most. Internet Ad Packages are offered as low as $ 10.00 for a period of one month, or by a set amount of "hits", depending on the advertiser you go with. <br><br>2: The presentation to the market <br><br>If your product / service is aimed at the younger generation or the corporate world, Internet advertisements would be best because they are already hooked into the net, surfing websites. A few of these pages that you have your ad on, could give you a link to your own website as well. Result, a greater number of "hits" on your website! <br><br>3: Relatively trouble-free <br><br>Everything you really need is a PC, some knowledge and ideas for designing your site, then search for the best Internet ad package for your advertising needs and budgets, choose from a variety of advertisement ways like Banner Ads, text ads; whether you want to work with pop-ups or pop-unders, etc. All from the comfort of your home! <br><br>4: Update ads <br><br>Unlike TV commercials, which must be periodically updated, your Internet ads could go for some time without change. If they need updating, the amendment of the site or your ad is usually a very simple matter that can be done quickly and easily. <br><br>Disadvantages <br><br>1: Scope <br><br>It is a "limited" market that can be conquered, if you only use the Internet for advertising display. While more and more people every day are now into the use of technology and surfing the World Wide Web there are quite a few of the average consumers out there that are still on the older forms of advertising as a means to gather information on certain products and services. Fortunately for us Internet <br><br>advertisers, that is changing quickly in our favor, and this will soon no longer be an issue.<br><br>2: Additional costs <br><br>If you decide to rent the help of a professional, a freelancer or a company for the production of your site and /or advertising for your product or service, of course it costs more than if you did it yourself. While the costs can advance an initial disadvantage, the results in the long term may in fact be very beneficial if you have the right people to work with. <br><br>Conclusion:<br><br>The goal of Internet advertising is to offer the widest maximum exposure of your brand/product with the lowest possible cost. Given the list of advantages and disadvantages to using low-cost Internet advertising displays, an entrepreneur can now assess its applicability to his/her product or service. <br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/AN-kIJI_5wg&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/AN-kIJI_5wg&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>In the final analysis, if you have an Internet presence and you are not using Internet advertising, then you are clearly missing out on a huge market. There is a lot of money to be made from the Internet, so go out there and snap up your share!<br><br>By: Ross the Pit Boss<br><br>Article Directory: http://www.articledashboard.com<br><br>Ross "The Pit Boss" has been involved with Customer Service and Sales, both Direct and now on-line since 1978.

Marketing & Advertising :: How to Market to the Wealthy - 06 Aug 2016 01:12

Tags:

[[html]]<img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="http://www.laneterralever.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/social-media-apps.jpg" width="345" /><br><br>Many marketers want to cut to the chase and just target people that are rich. They only want the people that have the disposable income to spend on their purchases. You can certainly target a market that includes people that make over a certain amount of money, but that doesn't guarantee that they'll spend their money on your product.<br><br>To market to the wealthy, you need to change your marketing strategy a bit. Tweak what you do for your middle-class targets. Here's how to reach the rich:<br><br>Be where they are. People remember things by repetition. You need to hang your poster printing pieces and leave your brochures at rich people's haunts. Most rich people have to go to the bank, so advertise in or around banks. Or you can hang some color custom poster printing on bulletin boards at gourmet grocery stores or other places you know the rich people flock to.<br><br>Be of use to them. Try to think of a way you can do them a favor. How can your product or service help them? If you own a children's clothing boutique, offer to shop for their kids for them or offer some kind of babysitting/drop-off-your-kid service. Cater to them. Give them what they didn't know they could have.<br><br>Beat TiVo. Most wealthy people can afford things like TiVo and satellite radio, which means any television or radio commercials you had planned for them won't be seen. One way to get around this is product placement: paying a production company to include your product in their script. For example, if you have a chocolate store, you could pay for one of the characters to be eating out of a bag of your chocolates during the show. This effectively jumps over the fast-forwarding-through-commercials-on-TiVo hurdle.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/yDA864UskXc&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/yDA864UskXc&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Draw them in with your copy. When the rich look for your kind of product, what do they type in the search engine? Look for the Web sites that attract rich people, like Tiffany's, and take note of the words they use on their site and in their marketing materials. Try to incorporate those words on your Web site and other marketing materials to describe your company and/or your product.<br><br>Be patient. Rich people are always being asked to contribute to one charity or another. They probably get a lot of hyped-up mail and email from advertisers who are afraid that they're going to miss their big chance of getting that rich person's money. Be patient and advertise aggressively, but give them time to make up their own minds. Use a lot of poster printing around their neighborhoods, or where they work (like in doctor office parks). Give them time to see your color poster printing pieces, brochures and other materials (remember, repetition is key!) and then contact them directly if possible. Don't give them any time restraints, because they've heard all of those before and they won't have any trouble finding a place that doesn't restrain them!<br><br>Now that you know how to contact the rich, here's a reason why it doesn't always work. For instance, take people that make over $250,000 a year. You would assume that they have a lot of disposable income to buy your product, let's say you're selling a $1,000 purse. But perhaps they have many loans and a mortgage that leaves them with little cash. If you target these people instead of people who make $50,000 per year but have little debt, you could be missing out on many potential sales. The person that makes $50,000 per year, lives in a rent-controlled apartment and has no debt can afford that $1,000 purse. And, there are a greater number of these middle-income earners to target. But you'll miss these people because you only focused on the household income of rich people.<br><br>Targeting only the rich is not likely to net you big profits. Sure, include the rich in your target market, but don't let that be your only deciding factor.<br><br>&#13;<br><br><a href="http://suara.com">Berita Hari Ini</a>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

Positive Effects of the Media - 05 Aug 2016 14:28

[[html]]<img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="https://image.freepik.com/free-vector/social-media-online-network-vector_23-2147494754.jpg" width="355" /><br><br>"All of us who professionally use the mass media are the shapers of society. We can vulgarize that society. We can brutalize it. Or we can help lift it onto a higher level."<br><br>&#13;<br><br>~ William Bernbach, American advertising creative director<br><br>That's what media is capable of. It can influence society both positively and negatively. While it can lead to blind imitation, it can also serve as a source of inspiration. Overexposure to media can cause information overload, but its right use leads to a global exchange of information. Wrong choices may have a negative impact on society, especially on children and teenagers. However, if used wisely, media proves to be a boon. It gives us a platform to voice our opinions on social and political issues. Owing to its reach and ease of access, it increases general awareness. It is the best source of information, entertainment, and inspiration. It provides us with effective means of communication, making the world a smaller place. Advanced technology has only multiplied its effects. In this Buzzle article, we talk about how media affects us positively.<br><br>Increased Awareness<br><br>Exposure to the different forms of media leads to an increased awareness about what's happening around the world. Newspapers, web portals, and modern-day mobile apps that serve us news feeds, lead to a speedy spread of information. The latest in every field, be it entertainment, sports, or any other, news about major events across the globe, and information about what's new, what's trending, what's in, and what's out, reaches us within minutes, thanks to media. It makes us aware of the changing social or political scenario in not just our country, but the entire world. The changing economy, speculations about a rise or fall in the prices of goods, predictions about the growth or decline in jobs, and statistical studies in various other fields can help us plan for the future. An expected dip or rise in temperature, snow or rainfall, and harsh weather conditions are reported through weather forecasts in the news media. In case of epidemics, natural hazards, or man-made disasters, media spreads awareness about the associated risks and safety measures to take. Government or non-government organizations working for an environmental or social cause can use social media and its other forms to spread their message, thus making the commoners more socially aware and environmentally conscious.<br><br>Easy and Speedy Access<br><br>Due to the rapid spread of media to all parts of the world, the access to information is easy and fast. Owing to the web technology, almost everyone has access to information from anywhere in the world. Owing to technological developments, media is not limited to big cities. It has reached the world's remotest parts, thus increasing the accessibility of information. Imagine living without the TV or the Internet. Seems difficult, right? With the television reaching almost every household, access to sources of information and entertainment increased. The speed and ease of access was further boosted by the spread of Internet technology. Today, there are several websites, TV channels as well as newspaper columns and supplements dedicated to specific fields like food, travel, animal life, etc. Experts in the field can provide guidance to the readers/audience using these platforms. Thanks to modern communication media like mobile phones and email, people at distant locations can be reached within seconds. With the increasing reach of media, service providers are eager to advertise themselves through these channels. This in turn, increases the audiences' access to different products and services, giving them more options to choose from.<br><br>Media as a Platform<br><br>Social media has served as one of the best means to voice our opinions on any and everything in the world. Blogs are a great way for anyone to express his ideas. Conversations in the form of comments on social or blog posts, and discussions in online or news forums can help in the exchange of vital information or sharing of views. Media often acts as the link between talented/skilled people and those in search for them. For example, job portals serve as a link between recruiters and job seekers. These days, there are many talent shows on radio and TV, that give budding artists a platform to showcase their talent. Also, there are websites that allow you to exhibit your art. You can demonstrate your performing art, make a video, post it on one of these websites, promote it on your social profile, and see it go viral. Web, TV, and print media are some of the most popular advertising platforms. Businesses use these to market their products and increase their reach.<br><br>Source of Inspiration<br><br>Movies, documentaries, and books that portray lives of great people inspire many. True stories are told in a way that appeals to the readers/audience. Movies like Gandhi and Lincoln proved to be inspirational because they presented the struggle in the lives of these heroes. Books like The Secret and The Alchemist are popular as inspirational reads. Documentaries, telefilms, and TV shows that narrate true stories of a fight with life's difficulties, have a similar effect on the audience. Media also helps by enabling a small idea or message to spread far and wide, thus inspiring people to come together for a cause. A call for help can reach the masses and also encourage them to contribute. TV channels conduct talk shows and interviews with successful people. Knowing about their achievements and their struggle proves to be motivational for many.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/9OZIHOBae8w&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/9OZIHOBae8w&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Truth is Uncovered<br><br>Media is often blamed for sting operations, but it shouldn't be forgotten that it is also media that brings the reality into light. There are several instances of news media (print, radio, or television) giving voice to the poor and the neglected. The common man can voice his concerns and the media ensures that they are heard by the right people. It acts as a communication medium between the common man and the government, by sharing government policies with people and having their voice reach the governing authorities. Thanks to media, scams are uncovered and millions are saved from losses. Media exposes to the world, cases of corruption, crime, scandals, and acts of abuse. Their cameras help bring out world's dark realities and make the common man aware of them. Corrupt people, criminals, and abusers fear the law as well as the media, for they know it can expose their reality.
