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.

Where2Golf Celebrates 10th Anniversary as Golf’s Ultimate Online Information Source

LONDON, England, February 16, 2015 — /EPR MEDIA NEWS/ — Where2Golf.com is celebrating its 10th anniversary as the ultimate online information source for the game of golf where golfers can ‘discover the best’ in golf travel and refer to its vast library of golf facts, figures and images.

Whilst first and foremost a comprehensive guide to the finest golf courses and the top golf destinations in the world, Where2Golf also houses an encyclopaedia of golf information covering international tournaments, both professional and amateur, a Who’s Who of golf, from the world’s best professionals to some of golf’s best course designers, as well as a golf dictionary that explains the game’s unique terminology.

Where2Golf began as a hobby back in 2002 for site founders, Nigel Butler and Suzanne Lenaerts, but it was three years later when they quit corporate life and committed themselves fulltime to expanding Where2Golf that it began to crystallize into the complete golf resource that it is today.

The professional development of the website started in 2005 with the couple visiting golf destinations and playing golf courses around the globe to ensure that their content was tried, tested and true and that the information they were providing was as accurate and objective as it could be.

“Nigel and I realised that if we were going to take on the huge task of growing Where2Golf into one of the world’s most complete golf guide we needed to devote 100% of our time to the project,” explains Suzanne. “ We gave up our jobs and began by seeking out and playing what most golfers would describe as the “best” golf courses on the planet. The Where2Golf resource you see today is the culmination of our combined experience of playing, assessing and covering over 4,500 golf courses over the last 10 years, from Europe to America, Australasia to Africa”.

As the content grew, so the website traffic grew.

Testament to the reputation the site has gained as a credible and reliable course reviewer, Where2Golf now generates an impressive 90,000 views per month and rising.

Though not exhaustive, this unique resource represents a wide and rich selection of courses that the general consensus of travelling golfers all over the world would want to play. To keep Where2Golf live, course reviews and new golfing destinations are added to and updated regularly. Turkey for example has recently been included in the golf destinations section.

The golf course reviews are based on Nigel’s and Suzanne’s assessment of three main aspects of a course: the quality of the design and layout, the conditioning and presentation and the attractiveness of the setting. The quality of the clubhouse, practice ground and associated facilities above and beyond the golf course are not factored into the ratings.

Another unique feature of the website is its high quality maps that feature all the courses Where2Golf covers. These maps are a powerful tool when planning a golf trip and mean that golfers can identify their preferred location boasting several great courses while basing themselves centrally. A quick click on each course details nearby recommended hotels whilst ‘Stay & Play’ courses are also indicated.

The encyclopaedia section of Where2Golf is as comprehensive as its golf course coverage.

In the Tournaments category, the results of all the top professional tournaments on the PGA, European, LPGA, LET, Asian and Seniors Tours are covered as well as the top amateur (both men and ladies) scene. Incredibly this coverage goes back as far as 1860.

The Who’s Who category  not only includes the world’s top players but also celebrated golf course designers, golf journalists and club makers and many other golf “celebrities”. Biographies of each individual are listed as well as golfing achievements and their contribution to the world of golf.

Finally a dictionary on the site explains the meaning of the terminology used in the game and offers the first steps in trying to demystify what the sport is about and making it more understandable and approachable.

After 10 years in the making, Where2Golf really is the most comprehensive one-stop shop for travelling golfers.

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.

Can Obama outlast Mugabe?

President Barrack Obama will be sworn in as United States president to serve his second and final term on January 21. A month later, Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, in power since 1980, will be celebrating his 89th birthday.

The two may be words apart, one leading the most powerful nation on earth and the other, a pariah that no one wants to be associated with. But while Obama will be out in four years, no one knows when Mugabe will leave the scene, hence the question: Can Obama outlast Mugabe?

Ten years ago Mugabe was considered the most evil man after Saddam Hussein of Iraq and Osama bin Laden of Al Qaeda.

Saddam Hussein was hunted down and captured by United States troops and was executed in December 2006.

Osama was also killed by United States special troops in May 2011 and his body was buried at sea.

But Mugabe lives on. It is not that the United States has not tried to get rid of him. It has, but not as brazenly as it pursued Saddam and Osama.

It tried to use Mugabe’s rivals in the opposition and within his own party, the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front. It used sanctions but they have only hurt the ordinary Zimbabwean worse. The United States could have overrun Zimbabwe in seconds if it wished to. So, how did Mugabe survive?

This 10 000-word kindle book entitled: Can Obama outlast Mugabe- explains why and how Mugabe has survived.

It shows how against all odds, Mugabe survived his biggest Western foes: President George Bush of the United States, Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain and Prime Minister John Howard of Australia. He has even survived his own so-called kingmaker, Solomon Mujuru.

Mugabe was under siege when Obama came to office in 2009. Obama stunned everyone especially the republicans when he beat Matt Romney to win his second term. Can he beat Mugabe?

This book gives the reason why Mugabe has survived it all. It gives the only plausible explanation of how the Zimbabwean President has survived even when he had given up.

You can also borrow the book from Kindle library.

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.

Inventory Management Specialist Phillip Slater Releases New e-Book The Optimization Trap

In a move that capitalizes on technology’s ability to provide written works through mobile devices and financially supports community philanthropies, The Optimization Trap has been recently released exclusively in digital format. Written by inventory management expert Phillip Slater, the book is now available on Kindle, Kobo, Nook, iPad, Sony, and other e-readers. Mr. Slater’s previous books were published in hard copy by Industrial Press, New York, the world’s oldest industrial education publisher.

Mr. Slater will donate 100% of the proceeds from this e-Book to the Initiate Action Community Fund, a sub fund of The Australian Communities Foundation (ACF), that Phillip and Mercedes Slater established in 2011 to support educational initiatives and causes.  The Australian Community Foundation (previously Melbourne Community Foundation) aims to generate and distribute philanthropic resources to address emerging social issues and to meet the needs of its communities.

“Digitally publishing The Optimization Trap achieves many goals for me: the digital format not only provides readers with more accessibility, but it costs less to purchase. Using a digital format also allows us to channel 100% of the proceeds into our Initiate Action Community Fund which supports various educational causes through ACF,” said Mr. Slater.

Following years of helping companies improve their profit and reduce working capital, Mr. Slater wrote The Optimization Trap to help managers understand why optimization programs often fail to achieve their intended results. The book exposes the pitfalls of optimization programs while offering viable solutions. Based on Mr. Slater’s years of experience in inventory management, he identifies optimization traps and illustrates how to remedy these and achieve peak performance in operations.

“Improving operational outcomes typically involves optimization. It is what managers do. However, sometimes when seeking to optimize, people take actions that, without realizing it, limit both their options and their results. This is what I call the Optimization Trap,” stated Mr. Slater. “How do you make sure that you don’t get caught in the optimization trap and, if you do, how do you get free? This book identifies the key principles to both identify and be free of the ‘trap’.”

Similar to best selling management books such as The Goal, Who Moved My Cheese, and Fish!, The Optimization Trap uses an easy to read narrative style. By using inventory management as the example, Mr. Slater is able to address familiar, realistic everyday scenarios faced by managers and discuss how to apply the principles for avoiding the Optimization Trap. This book speaks not just to inventory managers; its tips and principles are applicable to any situation where managers are seeking to achieve optimal performance in its operations.

For Kindle users, please access the ebook The Optimization Trap via Phillip Slater author’s page at Amazon.com: http://amzn.to/L9npFE
