Forcing Change A City and Regional Publisher Moves into EMedia with Mixed

first_imgPublishing in Southern California is tough and always has been, Steve Churm says. Churm, the president of Churm Media, a city and regional publisher based in Orange County, remembers a FOLIO: report from 14 years ago. “In 1994 FOLIO: wrote, ‘The streets of Los Angeles would run red with blood if its magazine casualties were made of flesh instead of pulp,’” Churm said at the recent Niche Publishing Conference in Austin, Texas. “It’s more difficult today than it was 14 years ago to make a buck in the magazine industry in Southern California.”Churm should know. Two years ago, he was a $9.5 million company with seven magazines. Two years, two closed magazines and a topline that is $1 million less later, Churm is evaluating a strategy he embarked on to make his company brand centric and not just print centric. Churm, whose company publishes OC Metro, Southland Golf, OC Family and others, was the keynote speaker at the Niche Conference, a relatively new event geared to very small magazines. The event is run by Carl Landau, a publishing entrepreneur known, among other things, for a series of sales-training seminars called Camp Niche Jamboree. This year’s Niche Conference attracted 120 attendees and 17 sponsors. In Steve Churm, who launched his company in 1990, the conference had an engaging, candid keynote. “We embraced the idea that print and online work better together,” he said. “Our own print-centric thinking had gotten in our way.” He embraced that concept even though larger city and regional magazines, perhaps paradoxically, average less than 2 percent of their revenue from online sources, according to FOLIO:’s City and Regional Publishing Survey. To make it work, Churm said, he invested $350,000 to rebuild his Web sites—including an all-new content-management system—and all funded out of cashflow.The result? “We have not seen the payoff,” he said. “Not yet, anyway. We are entrepreneurs, and yes, we are going to fail. But you have to try.”A more promising initiative is the creation of Ripe Orange, an in-house ad agency designed to serve the company’s stable of 2,000 advertisers—many of whom are small and don’t have access to sophisticated creative services, Churm said. In 15 business days, Ripe Orange has booked $40,000 in business, Churm said. Churm offered eight lessons learned in the process of repositioning his company:1. Standalone repurposed content isn’t compelling to anyone. Write and present content for the medium it is intended. 2. Take advantage of being online. There are clever ways to alert readers of other resources.3. Provoke readers, but don’t annoy them online.4. Quality content rules. Provide value and people will come back.5. Every person working on your Web sites should get used to being overworked indefinitely.6. Document, document, document. Programmers and producers are not going to stay with you for long. When they leave, if you haven’t documented, you have a problem.7. Useful is better than cool. Be respectful of readers’ time limitations.8. Fear of failure—you can’t be afraid of making a mistake. “Lee Iacocca said in his book that his regret was that he didn’t fail earlier and more often in his career,” Churm said. “You’ve got to put yourself out there.”last_img read more

Attracted by yoga mesmerised by Kumbh

first_imgReem Ibrahim Al-Arfaj is the first certified yoga trainer in Saudi Arabia. On her first visit to India this past week, she was left mesmerised by the Kumbh mela at Prayagraj. Clad in a black burqa and a hijab, her excitement was palpable when asked about her experience at the Kumbh. “It was amazing. Everyone was smiling and they were excited to meet us. The security there was very high and we felt very safe among those people,” said Reem, who is in her 20s. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAmong the delegates from 181 countries who were invited by the Indian government to visit the Kumbh and participate in the cultural activities there, she has completed 500 hours of yoga training for trainers under an expert at the Indian embassy in Riyadh last year. She feels she is very good in aspects like yogic sukshma vyayam, shat kriya, surya namaskar, yogasana, pranayama and meditation. “I am a businesswoman and help my father in his business. I heard about yoga and it attracted me. So I enrolled for this programme at the Indian Embassy in Riyadh. Now I can train others in yoga,” she said with a glitter in her eyes. Though Reem did not take a dip in the Ganga, Goran Pejakovic from Croatia not only took the holy dip but also recited the Gayatri mantra while he was in the river. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHe has been practising Vaishnavism since 1991. “I read Bhagavad Gita and since then I was attracted towards spirituality and Vaishnavism,” Goran said as he flaunted his bodi (tuft) and the janeo. Born in a Christian family, Goran finds no contradiction in the faith of his forefathers and his own “spiritual path”. “They believe in one god and I also believe in one god and that is Krishna,” he added with a smile. His wife and daughter too are devotees of Lord Krishna and the family is vegetarian. Konstantinos Kalaitzis from Greece loves to sing bhajans, including Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite one ‘Vaishnav jana…’ On his 44th visit to India since 1986 and having travelled to all major Hindu pilgrimage sites including Kailash Mansarover, Kedarnath, Gangotri, Yamnotri, Nanda Devi, this was his first chance to visit a Kumbh mela. “But Kumbh was a different feeling. I went in the Ganga and swam. I felt very good after that,” he said. Delegates from other Arab countries including the UAE, Oman and Syria also came. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, the President of Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) that organised the entire exercise, said it was the brainchild of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “While the Kumbh is happening for millenia together, for the first time a conscious attempt was made to have representation from each and every country on the globe. Invites were extended to those people who were interested in culture,” Sahasrabuddhe said. An orientation programme was held explaining the idea, history and significance of the Kumbh besides the aspects of management that go into organising such a big event. “The idea was to enhance the literacy about the idea of India and Indian culture. Because many a time India and events like Kumbh are seen like a puzzle or riddle. It is an exercise to demystify events like Kumbh,” he added.last_img read more
