BON Cloud’s China-Europe block train video stories help to connect Central-Southern Europe with China

bon_cloud-telefriuli_broadcast_facilities_europawire_sep_13_2016

BEIJING, 16-Sep-2016 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — The biggest story coming out of China today is the launching of the Silk Road on Rails: China-Europe block trains that carry goods across the globe. The proposal to establish China-Europe railroads surprised even the most experienced of rail industry players, yet thousands of trains now traverse these tracks annually.

Telefriuli SpA, the Italian broadcaster, exclusively aired the video series across Italy’s northeastern regions of Friuli Venezia and Eastern Veneto during the first week of September 2016. Telefriuli SpA was set up in 1974 in the North East of Italy. With more than 40 years of history it is also the region’s longest-running broadcast channel.

Today, as certified by Auditel, Telefriuli is by far the most-watched broadcaster in Friuli Venezia Giulia and in Eastern Veneto, and offers its viewers a rich schedule ranging from information to entertainment.

Of the videos. Telefruili Director, Daniele Paroni, said “I think it is crucial for Europe and for China to have a “physical” link which allows more and more narrow and intense social and economic relations between these two global players. In the videos there was a brilliant comparison between the silk road and the rail which links China and Europe.”

The China-Europe rail route is the longest in the world covering almost 10,000 kilometres in total.

Referring to BON Cloud, the producer and distributor of the China-Europe block train video series, Ms Paroni continued, “Telefriuli wants to retrace Marco Polo’s steps, showing to our audience the brilliant productions [BON Cloud is] sending us which also helps to connect Central-Southern Europe with China. Now that we have established this important relationship – BON Cloud and Telefriuli – we really want to continue this journey together, to enable us to achieve mutual satisfaction and knowledge.”

The first block train left Zhengzhou for Hamburg on July 18th, 2013, connecting people along the Silk Road and shortening the distance between continents. The 12-day, six-country journey posed challenges: would European companies welcome the new trade route? Would the cargo be secure? Would the project even be practical?

The trans-Eurasia rail trip began as a once-a-month event but China soon realized it required partners to make it successful. With partners on board, Hamburg became the forerunner. The German port city now serves as both a departure and destination point for the China-Europe block trains.

This project has lowered the cost of transportation significantly and commerce is thriving. There is no doubt about the initiative’s acceptance. The service currently transports goods several times a week from China, the Republic of Korea and Japan, as well as European countries such as Germany, Italy, Poland, France and Spain. With the growing success of the initiative, the development of additional European destinations is in the pipeline.

EconomyPR.com Launches Press Release Writing Service for Entrepreneurs

Streamlined and Affordable; Do-It-Yourself PR for Amazon Sellers, Startups and Crowd-Funders

Cleveland, Ohio, June 26, 2015 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — EconomyPR.com today announced the launch of its affordable, streamlined “do-it-yourself” public relations services for entrepreneurs, Amazon Sellers and crowd-funders today. Bridging the gap between random “gig economy” freelancers and premium agencies, EconomyPR.com has demonstrated in beta that it can deliver professionally-written press releases, blogs and media pitches at a fraction of the fees charged by agencies and publicists. The company’s do-it-yourself model enables clients who might not have even considered PR to conduct effective media campaigns.

“It’s time for the PR business to catch up with changes in the news industry as well as shifts in the way that creative work gets done,” said Hugh Taylor, the CEO and founder of EconomyPR.com. “Talented freelancers are available to work economically by the project. Entrepreneurial clients are taking media relations into their own hands. Journalists and bloggers are reachable directly and publishing online. The old barriers between a PR client and the media are disappearing. We’re leading the way in disrupting a field that’s ripe for change.”

Taylor, who has managed public relations in the Fortune 500 as well as for several venture-backed startups, founded EconomyPR.com after observing a disconnect in the modern public relations market. While many traditional PR firms require monthly retainers that can reach tens of thousands of dollars, the actual writing of a press release — which is all that some clients want — could be performed by freelancers for well under one hundred dollars. The proliferation of gig economy freelance sites such as Fiverr and PeoplePerHour has given public relations customers access to thousands of low-cost writing resources. However, quality and delivery can be unpredictable on these sites.

The challenge was to create an end product that met the client’s expectations while preserving the value of the gig economy. EconomyPR.com performs an essential editorial function, marshaling the resources of a skilled, curated freelancer base to enable low-cost press release writing for clients while enforcing professional standards for quality and message impact. The company also helps clients repurpose their press releases, adapting them into articles, blog posts and media pitch emails. In pre-launch beta, EconomyPR.com has helped dozens of entrepreneurs get their news picked up in the media.

EconomyPR.com’s basic offering is a 300 to 400 word press release for $25. Standard delivery is three business days. Extra charges apply for rush services and add-ons, such as blog post adaption and email pitches.

Core papers for religious text applications include Custom Brite® and Bridge Supreme®. Custom Brite is a Freesheet paper available in 22-40 lb. basis weights while Bridge Supreme is a Premium Hybrid paper available in 18-38 lb. basis weights, with added hybrid capability extending up to 40 lb.

Mediaman Howard Needle Celebrates 2-Year Anniversary Of Alternative Solutions Media – A Unique Marketing Company That Brings Recovery Programs And People Suffering From Addiction Together

In June of 2011, media executive Howard Needle launched a company specifically focused on promoting rehabilitation and recovery to the addicted community. He realized that many people suffering from addiction are unwilling to check themselves into a facility, and the idea of self treatment with online support would be appealing to them. His company, Alternative Media Solutions, was founded on the premise that people suffering from addiction will respond to informative TV commercials and radio campaigns, and then visit an online site that offers support.

Tips and guidance on self-healing are provided on this site but also, descriptions of recovery programs and facilities—with video—can be viewed. What this achieves is that many people looking to self treat end up contacting a recovery facility or program and finding a much more effective treatment process.

“I am very proud of my company,” states founder and president, Howard Needle. “I knew there had to be a way to bring those who are addicted together with those who can really help them. Utilizing volume buying power and my relationships with media companies, I am able to provide recovery businesses with a complete media package at a significant discount, allowing them to reach more patients and help more people than they ever could have without the media campaign. I’ve reached my two year anniversary and I am here to stay.”

Needle has working relationships with media experts in every state,  and so is able to service clients from around the country. Top quality videos that highlight the recovery facilities are also placed online for potential patients to watch. Needle and his team serve clients of various sizes and budgets. Quotes for media campaigns are provided at no charge, and can be localized, regional or national.

Are you cut out to PR your own business asks Best PR Selector?

You don’t need the big personality of Richard Branson or Hilary Devey for your business to make a big splash in the media.

“A larger than life persona is not a good predictor of whether a business owner can successfully do their own PR,” says Phil Turtle, founder of BestPRSelector.com

Instead, the public relations expert has identified three shared characteristics of entrepreneurs who have effectively driven their own publicity machines.

Don’t get too close to your business
“Firstly,” says Turtle, who launched online PR needs assessment tool Best PR Selector in mid-2012, “they have the ability to take a step back from their business and see it from an outsider’s perspective”.

This, he explains, can be harder than it seems. “We’re all familiar with the expressions ‘getting too close to your work’ and ‘can’t see the wood for the trees’”, he explains. “Well both aptly describe the unfortunate position many business owners find themselves in.

“When you’re up close and personal with your business 24/7, it becomes very hard to be objective about it,” he says.

According to Turtle, common traps company owners fall into include using industry jargon, assuming outsiders have lots of prior knowledge, being unrealistic about how important their business is and not being focussed enough on creating and marketing tangible differences with competitor companies.

“It’s no surprise that the business owner who will be the most successful at getting publicity is the one who can see their company through fresh and objective eyes each day,” says Turtle. “This is quite a rare skill.”

Time management
The second most important skill that enables business owners to do their own PR is time management, says Turtle.

Public relations is both time consuming and time sensitive. To ensure you don’t miss killer opportunities to get yourself in front of the right media, you have to strike whilst the iron is hot,” he says.

“If this means shelving everything else in your diary for that morning to concentrate on a PR opportunity, good owner/PRs have the ability to put everything else on hold – or delegate it – and prioritise that golden opportunity.”

Avid media consumers
The final predictor of an entrepreneur who will make an excellent home-grown PR is that they will be an avid – and analytical – consumer of their target media.

“People who do their own PR well understand what makes a great story in their industry. They are not just regular readers of the key industry media but they are also critical readers,” says Turtle.

“They can spot other PR stories and they have ideas about how to create their own.”

Phil adds that good self-publicists understand what makes a news story, a feature, a comment piece, a photo story, a great reader offer.

“Without this appreciation, you’re feeling around in the dark and wasting a journalist’s time,” he says.

“A good PR – whether a professional or small-business person – will know the media they are trying to get coverage in like the back of their hand. Read it, break it down and understand the editor’s requirements. A big personality is no excuse for not having done your background research,” he concludes.

Workshop 1: Print strategies for new business
Workshop 2: Optimising your print infrastructure
Workshop 3: Managed Print Services
Workshop 4: The commercial advantage of a print strategy

In addition on stand B34 and B44 Balreed will be showing live demonstrations of the latest print management, scanning and print workflow systems as well as explaining how Balreed’s Managed Print Services can help businesses control the cost of printing.

“How a business produces and manages documents should be a crucial consideration for any organisation, especially in the current climate, but surprisingly it is so often over-looked by business leaders.

Magazine Subscriptions Demystify Online Shopping

Forrester research indicates that, by the end of 2011, Americans will spend around $200 billion in online purchases. They also predict that by the year 2015, U.S. retail sales will well surpass the $275 billion mark. This growth in ecommerce is being attributed to existing shoppers pushing their online shopping boundaries by purchasing more items off the World Wide Web like home appliances and furniture in addition to increasing spending in traditionally popular online shopping categories such as books and media. Also driving the numbers are consumers who are turning to the internet as a shopping resource for the very first time.

Print magazine publishers are looking to be a part of this dynamic and rapidly expanding online retail marketplace. By partnering with various online retail sites, popular discount magazines which are available as low cost, promotional subscriptions and have over the years cultivated a loyal readership base, will be able to avail their readers of opportunities to buy items featured within their publications via online sales portals.

Magazine aficionados who hold their magazine subscriptions dear will find the explorations being made by publishers to harmonize print magazine content with online retail sites advantageous. Magazine lovers need not renounce their love for the printed periodical but can use it instead as a trusted guide to chaperone them through their online shopping experience. Magazines and cheap magazine subscriptions will become especially invaluable tools for all consumers who feel intimidated when purchasing items from the internet or who have heretofore felt reluctant to shop online.

In recent years, many publications have shifted their focus from print to digital magazines, in some cases completely revamping their online presence. While some have found great success in the switch, making the entire magazine available online, while others have struggled to get footholds in the online arena opting to only post specific content from the current issue. In either case, the content is usually free, which leads to the other problem: whether or not online magazines are profitable from a business standpoint. The primary reason for this trepidation is that the internet is still considered an unstable marketing tool.

Magazine lovers however can enjoy a choice of online or print magazines and save on annual subscriptions, sometimes getting a whole year’s worth of magazines for the cost of just two or three at stand prices.

Inaugural Survey of Photo Buying Professionals Is Now Underway

PhotoResearch.info (http://www.PhotoResearch.info) – has launched it’s first survey for the year, asking photo buyers from all sectors of the stock photography industry, to share their thoughts, feedback and expectations. Organisers are expecting strong participation based on trends in this troubles & rapidly changing industry. Over 100 commercial photo buyers registered for the survey in the first week, and many more are expected to take part in the next few weeks.

This 2011 survey promises to provide the data needed for both independent photographers and stock photo libraries to understand changing expectations and desires of photo buyers, identify emerging trends and help them anticipate and adapt.

“The Stock Photography industry has been in a state of flux for many years now, and just when we thought it was settling down, it appears we might be headed in a full circle,” explained Brad Stephens, PRI director. “Over the last 12 months we’ve seen a lot of trends with pricing and licensing and that just don’t fit the pattern of previous years, and some are more like what we’d have expected 10 years ago. Of course in other areas, the industry is breaking new ground every month, so it’s an exciting time to be on the cutting edge as it were.”

Matt Brading, founder of OzImages International, reflected, “This sort of survey really helps all industry participants. It’s the kind of information that photographers can use improve many aspects of their businesses, from the subjects they shoot, the way they photograph them, right through to the marketing methods they use to get those images noticed. And when the photographers are doing a better job of it, it makes the Photo Buyer’s job significantly easier as well!”

It only takes a few minutes to take part in the survey. Photo buyers can login at http://www.PhotoResearch.info and select the 2011 Photo Buyers Survey.

Video Copy Services (VCS), an Atlanta-based CD and DVD duplication company, is pleased to announce and celebrate their 25th anniversary. From modest beginnings as a simple VHS and Betamax dub house, VCS has evolved into Atlanta’s leading provider of CD, DVD and Blu-ray disc duplication, as well as digital video encoding and transcoding services. VCS is also proud to support the broadest range of high definition video formats in the Southeast.

“Over the years, constantly evolving technology has mandated that we stay on the cutting edge,” says VCS President George Helms. “We’ve become early adopters in order to better serve our client’s needs and goals. The best example of this is our extensive HD video capabilities.”

About VCS

After growing and expanding its focus in 1997, VCS has been providing videotape, CD and DVD duplication services to the broadcast industry, film and music industries, religious groups, government agencies and corporate clients. In 1999, they further expanded their range of offerings from traditional duplication and transfers to include digital encoding and transcoding, plus a wide array of other high definition video services. Their latest addition, a new Final Cut Pro system, will add video editing capabilities to the VCS menu. After 25 years, VCS has grown into a true full-service audio and video duplication company, able to service their growing national client base out of two facilities in their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.
