      • Print-on-demand books
      • Podcasts & video documentaries
      • Targeted ad campaigns
      • And even an entire Web site
  • 15. “ Everycasting” and our future direction
  • 16. Meet Joe, and Joe’s blog
    • Jose is all about running.
    • He’s posted 500 entries on his WordPress blog in just 2 years, including 60,000 photos.
    • He wants his site to look better, but knows nothing about design and has little time.
  • 17. Everycasting to the Rescue!
    • Joe goes to Everycasting and puts in his blog’s RSS feed.
    • He chooses some design styles he likes, then customizes them by uploading his logo.
    Joe Runner http://joesrunningworld.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/ Running News Site Name: Publisher name: RSS URL: Brew up a … Site design Printcast Mobile site eBook
  • 18. Meet Joe’s new Web site
    • Now Joe’s site looks just as professional as The New York Times.
    • It can work as its own standalone site, or take over the design of his existing site through inclusion of a simple Web widget.
    • But it’s more than just a Web site …
  • 19. It’s a printable E-Edition, too
    • The same design elements flow into a Printcast which is automatically promoted from the new site (what we do now).
    • We’ve learned that publishers respond well to the idea of getting an electronic print edition promoted from their Web sites, vs. the idea of turning your blog into a magazine.
    • The Web is still the most important platform, and people want a print option for certain uses.
  • 20. Meet Joe’s New Magazine
    • The same stories and design elements automatically flow into his Printcast.
  • 21. Meet Joe’s iPhone Site
    • We can sniff out which device you’re using to visit Joe’s site and optimize the interface for that device.
    • Joe doesn’t have to do anything to make this happen other than check a box.
  • 22. Meet Joe’s eBook
    • We can output to standard eBook formats.
    • That includes Apple’s future iPad, thanks to their adoption of the open ePub format.
  • 23. Joe is Now a Media Mogul
    • Mobile
    Web eReaders Print
  • 24. Who else is like Joe?
      • Millions of bloggers, of course. But also …
      • Large organizations with content and Web departments that start every conversation with “no, we can’t do that.”
      • Corporate communications departments.
      • Media companies of all sizes that need to do more, but with less.
      • Governments at all levels (city, county, state, federal, and departments within them).
      • In short, everyone!
  • 25. Looking Ahead
      • We’re working under a grant from the Knight News Challenge which ends in June. Everything will then be open-sourced.
      • Plans are to spin off as a new company and provide customized, private-label “Everycasting” services for publishers.
      • And yes, we’re looking for investors, too!
