Glam Media Becomes Mode Media, Pushes Into Video With New Shows, Distribution Platform At NewFront

Mode Media


Glam Media became Mode Media on Tuesday as it unveiled a plan to branch out beyond its fashion and beauty beginnings. The company now has content channels aimed at appealing to both men and women.


Mode already claims to reach more men ages 18-34 than ESPN and cited comScore data showing it has a reach of over 250 million monthly visitors worldwide across its web properties.


That technically makes it the seventh biggest online media company. Glam, now Mode, says it’s the only pure content play, though, and that after taking out non-content parts of other media companies — search, for example — Mode rises to the number two spot.


Mode showed off 10 new original shows that will air across several of its channels including more female fare such as “Supermarket Adventures” and “Mi Casa Su Casa” as well as two new shows targeted at men. “Who’s The Real Alpha?” pits famous males against each other in a battle of testosterone — think Leonardo Di Vvinci pitted against George Bush, Napoleon vs. Tom Cruise. The other male oriented show is “What if I wasn’t”, an unscripted show in which pro athletes are given chance to choose a new career in the real world.


The company is partnering with CAA and launching Mode Studios based in LA to support the new push in original content.


A new native video player is designed to make discovery and viewing easy for consumers and advertisers. Videos launch in full screen view rather than within a standard player frame.


To address the challenge of distribution, Samir Arora, founder and CEO of Mode, said that through Mode Video Distribution they can program and distribute native video embedded throughout their current reach of content pages today. The company will also tap their network of 6,000 affiliates to distribute video content.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
