Amy Venn

I can hear you!
Amy Venn
25:24
We are all muted at this point, I believe
Nicole Lucina
25:40
I can hear you too… we’re supposed to be on mute
Amy Venn
26:36
The email said 9 MST.
Chris Landry
27:10
I believe you're right ... it is arizona time
Nicole Lucina
28:33
I accidentally hung up and now it won’t let me join the call again
Nicole Lucina
28:58
Any ideas to get back on?
Amy Venn
29:38
I've never called in, so I'm not sure. There is an app you can download if you're on a phone?
Vicky Branton
29:51
I can hear Stephen Lee and Amy but no conference. I'm in Louisiana and I don't know if it is a time issue, or the originating source is not up.
Amy Venn
31:11
We aren't sure if we are an hour early or what's happening.
Nicole Lucina
32:02
Well I got back on the call but I don’t think anyone can hear me

32:07
Hello, this is Renée. My email actually said 10 a.m., but Nikki’s said 9.
nicklowrey
32:40
Pretty sure they meant 9 a.m. Arizona time so it’ll be a good half hour before this thing starts.
Vicky Branton
37:08
Chris are you still there?
Amy Venn
41:54
The email I received said:When: Fri Apr 26, 2019 9am – 10:30am Mountain Standard Time - Phoenix
dwaynefatherree
49:53
Is it just me, or is there no meeting happening?
nicklowrey
51:15
Arizona does’t use daylight savings time. So right now it is 8:43 Sierra Vista. When they send invites it’s always in Arizona time.
david byrnes
51:19
we got another 15
dwaynefatherree
51:48
Ok. I figured as much.
editor@sidneyherald.com
01:04:09
Someone has a video going
editor@sidneyherald.com
01:04:36
everyone might wanna check that the video icon has a red line through it.
dwaynefatherree
01:05:02
What if you’re an exhibitionist at heart?
editor@sidneyherald.com
01:05:34
uh sure
editor@sidneyherald.com
01:05:38
lol
editor@sidneyherald.com
01:05:55
Pretty sure some with the video on don’t realize it is on. :)
Dave Bell
01:06:08
Mine can't detect the camera
dwaynefatherree
01:15:23
Question: Do we have a fix for the Notifier function in TownNews so we can promote our scheduled stories to our social media (specifically Facebook) without babysitting it throughout the day?
Dan Shearer
01:18:21
Alessia and Sean are following that. We have two website - Green Valley and Sahuarita - it works on one, not the other. David wouldn’t be dealing with that, but we all know it’s a very big issue and they’re going after it.
dwaynefatherree
01:18:42
Ok. Thanks!
stephanie daugherty WW
01:19:04
We used to have print edition out first with reefers to web for additional content. Since web comes out first, is there something it can refer to the print edition?
Herald Review
01:20:13
Can we get a copy of some of the slides? We can't read the text on this one.
dwaynefatherree
01:20:34
At previous organizations, we always referred heavily from web breaking or updates to print for the fuller version of the story, then delay the print edition story from web until after 8 a.m. so we got the morning burt.
Herald Review
01:20:45
Great! Thanks!
dwaynefatherree
01:20:46
Burst.
stephanie daugherty WW
01:21:12
We have been the reverse. Space is limited.
dwaynefatherree
01:21:46
Sometimes you have to be. It’s a story-by-story basis.
dwaynefatherree
01:22:42
Headline=SEO keywords. Geography is a must.
stephanie daugherty WW
01:24:09
I had a question at training the other day. Does the keyword order matter for SEO? For instance, does Google pick up only the first 5 keywords?
angelamacala-guajardo
01:24:19
i dont think order matters
Alessia Alaimo
01:24:25
Good thing with TCMS we can have a difference between web headline and print headline.
Alessia Alaimo
01:24:47
No order matters or amount
Alessia Alaimo
01:24:57
the more the better :
Alessia Alaimo
01:24:59
):)
stephanie daugherty WW
01:25:01
I write headlines on the page to fit space. Does Town news update from that workflow stage/
stephanie daugherty WW
01:25:04
?
Alessia Alaimo
01:25:52
If you are directly connected to TCMS from Indesign the changes that you make InDesign should update the web

stephanie daugherty WW
01:30:36
sidebars?
stephanie daugherty WW
01:32:45
we use Q&A for politicians and arts & entertainment featured performer
Dan Shearer
01:34:34
Q&A’s get high readership, can be turned in a lot less time and cut to the heart of the topic. We do ours through email, for the most part.
angelamacala-guajardo
01:34:52
no
stephanie daugherty WW
01:36:12
what age group are you looking for? My son at age 25 shows me his "tic Tok" social media stories
Herald Review
01:39:44
How are we supposed to put all these tags and things if we go through Blox instead of directly posting?
Vicky Branton
01:40:42
Our community is working to build tourism, the more visits to the community, the more they return or move into the community. But recently stories about the festivals where international visitors are present, because of the paywall, they could not read stories unless they subscribed. How can those stories of tourist be read who may not want to signup for subscriptions?
stephanie daugherty WW
01:40:43
BLOX had a tab I think I saw onTuesday training and some automation that makes creating keywords easier.
angelamacala-guajardo
01:40:50
ty
dwaynefatherree
01:41:56
BOLX creates keywords, but does not tag them in your posts. Unless TownNews does another update, those hashtags will have to be done manually after publishing to social media.
dwaynefatherree
01:42:06
BLOX, not BOLX.
Matt Hickman
01:42:41
what's a good frequency on e-newsletter blasts? is that something that can be oversaturated?
Alessia Alaimo
01:43:52
When you create an Article asset and do not add Keywords/Tags, Blox will automatic add words from the body copy depending on the percentage confidence for search
Alessia Alaimo
01:44:03
Now, I would suggest you add to Keywords to make it more local
Alessia Alaimo
01:44:16
At times, Blox will not know to pick the best keywords
Amy Venn
01:44:58
I respectfully disagree with that answer.
stephanie daugherty WW
01:45:20
which answer?
Amy Venn
01:45:26
about oversaturation
Alessia Alaimo
01:45:39
In Notifier you can make the title different for social media posting where you can add the #hashtags
Dan Shearer
01:45:41
Autonomy on that one. Nobody knows your audience like you do.
dwaynefatherree
01:45:42
We used to shoot for an a.m. day starter email, a late morning update, a mid-afternoon/pre-evening slot and an evening email, focused on nightlife/events. Subscribers can choose the ones they want. Then you add in your breaking news blasts as needed.
stephanie daugherty WW
01:46:11
Do these newsletters come with ads?
dwaynefatherree
01:46:32
They should. Each content piece should provide a sales platform as well.
Alessia Alaimo
01:46:48
Wick Newsletters have 300x250 ad positions
stephanie daugherty WW
01:47:35
What separates newsletter from other platforms?
Amy Venn
01:48:12
Thanks, David! Great information.
stephanie daugherty WW
01:48:15
thanks, David!
dwaynefatherree
01:48:19
Think of newsletters as a completely different vertical.
dwaynefatherree
01:48:24
Thanks David!
Alessia Alaimo
01:48:28
Thank you David
