In this second episode of our new series “Best of .tv” we interview Cliff Ravenscraft of GSPN.tv. GSPN (Generally Speaking Production Network), created by Cliff with his wife Stephanie, is an online media content network that’s home to over 23 podcasts on topics ranging from religion to television shows to technical help for creating your own podcast and much more. Cliff was an early .tv adopter and has had a lot of success with his .tv. Join us as he shares his experience and gives us advice on how to start a successful .tv site.
Next we check in with “Best of ‘tv” correspondents Kosher Dillz and Flex Matthews who were selected to be the next .tv stars during a contest at SXSW in Austin, TX. Last month they flew out to San Francisco and had the tour at Revision3, the company behind Diggnation and Scam School. We gave them a camera so that they could show us what their day was like and the results are, as usual with Dillz and Matthews, entertaining.
Finally we highlight the blip.tv party that was held in celebration of the company closing another round of funding. Blip.tv is a great example of what the next generation media network looks like and focuses on helping independent show creators with the distribution of their shows. They had an amazing party to celebrate their success surrounded by the best of NYC’s video community. We’re excited to see them grow!
Online video is exploding as more individuals, brands, publishers and everyone in-between find it’s the best way to tell their stories in an interesting and engaging way that matches what audiences are coming to expect as part of their online experience. From personal vlogging to corporate marketing online video is everywhere and .tv is the best and easiest way to tell the audience that video is a significant part of the mix.
Be sure to tune in each month for a new installment of the Best of .tv and we hope you enjoy.
