HerTube Celebrates its 1 Year Anniversary; What’s Next For The Hybrid Company

HerTube TV Celebrate 1 Year Anniversary

HerTube which is a video & TV network about women and what women care about was launched October 2013 celebrates its one year anniversary.  HerTube is the brainchild of Audrey Bell-Kearney and is under the umbrella of Ms. Boss Media a marketing and consulting firm where Audrey is the president.  HerTube host a roster of women who produce their own show that is distributed across the HerTube media network which includes online, Roku, Smart TVs, Vimeo and YouTube where Audrey is a YouTube Partner.  The content produced by the women is also distributed across the HerTube app that can be downloaded to your IPhone, Samsung phones & tablets including Amazon Kindle Fire.  So the network hosts over 200 videos from its producers.  HerTube is a win win for all involved because when we launched we needed content so we looked for women who wanted to be on TV and that’s how we got our first group of producers states Audrey.  The next round of women producers came from business women, motivational speakers and authors looking for a platform that they could use to create more exposure for their business and that’s what HerTube offered.
Audrey has been an entrepreneur for over 15 years and believes that if opportunities aren’t coming to you, then create them for yourself.  95 percent of the women on the network are actresses looking for more face time to hone their craft of acting and HerTube puts them on TV every week when they release a new show because of our partnership with Roku states Audrey.
Over the past year HerTube has had some challenges one of which is monetizing all of content that is being produced on the network.  There is a lot of competition out there when you are looking for advertisers to support the network states Audrey.  We have to get our numbers up to attract advertisers and that has been a challenge for us.  We want to create revenue for the company and also help the women create income.  We partnered with an ad network that run ads on our Roku channel, but the revenue from that is extremely small, so moving forward we are have found a model that we think will work for HerTube and the women who produce shows.  We call it HerTube 2.0.  With this new model we can charge our producers a monthly subscription fee for their own channel and the producers can then in turn charge their subscribers a subscription for their channel, offer pay per view options and run advertising on their channel.  This is a great model for anyone who wants to create massive exposure and be in a position to monetize their channel at the same time.  Speakers, trainers and entertainers can charge for live events.  Filmmakers can charge for film screenings online and on TV. HerTube 2.0 offers a lot of great options and we are glad that we will be launching this new platform and our very own HerTube set-top-box on Christmas Day. What a way to start off the new year with a solid plan and platform ready to go for 2015 says Audrey.

Canadian front moves into North Carolina for Surf to Sound Challenge

397

 

Jessica Rando and Larry Cain of Canada return to North Carolina October 31 through November 2 to defend their women’s and men’s elite division championships in the Surf to Sound Challenge. Rando and Cain are world-class competitors in a variety of paddle sports, including the increasingly popular sport of standup paddleboard.

Jessica Rando, born in the greater Toronto area and raised on the shores of Lake Ontario, adopted an outdoor enthusiast lifestyle with encouragement from her parents and sister. In high school, she launched a 10-year career highlighted by national and international gold medals in sprint canoe, and three world championships in dragon boat.

After retiring from sprint canoe, 31-year-old Jessica Rando is now a major player in standup paddleboard. In 2014, Rando won first-place elite female in Pickering’s Canada Cup SUP Race, Ottawa’s Ultimate SUP Challenge, Toronto’s Icebreaker, and all races she entered on the Ontario SUP Series circuit.

“What I love most about SUP is that where there is water, you can paddle. Whitewater, surf, open-ocean, flatwater – all can be tackled on a standup paddleboard,” said Rando in a recent interview with NC Press Release. North Carolina’s Surf to Sound Challenge “offers a bit of an extension on summer and the race season … it keeps my race skills fresh. I also love the variety of conditions that the course offers.”

Larry Cain, also a Torontonian, participated in three Summer Olympics, winning gold and silver medals in the sprint canoe competition. An inductee into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, he is working with Canada’s high-performance paddle team leading up to the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

Winner of Canada’s SUP Cup in 2014, Cain has captured the men’s elite division championship in North Carolina’s Surf to Sound Challenge for the past three years.

This year’s three-day family weekend starts on Halloween, offering SUP clinics by Rando and Cain, a beginner course for standup paddle surfers, storytelling and s’mores for kids, and SUP races for every skill level on four unique race courses, a total of 20 miles, covering open-ocean and inland waters – that circumvent the beach strand and picturesque marsh islands.

Now in its fourth year, the 2014 North Carolina Surf to Sound Challenge christens its new 9-mile, advanced, long-distance course, called the Blockade Runner Flatwater Championship, in honor of the host hotel. Sandwiched between beaches on the Atlantic Ocean and Banks Channel, Blockade Runner Beach Resort is headquarters for four major East Coast SUP events each year, culminating with November’s Surf to Sound Challenge.

Downtime during the weekend features the east coast premiere of filmmaker Brent Deal’s H2MexicO, named 2014 Movie of the Year by SUP The Mag.

North Carolina Surf to Sound Challenge is presented by Wrightsville Beach Paddle Club, organizers of the Carolina Cup.

The April Verch Band – Oct 16 – Buttonwood Tree Perf Arts Ctr – Middleton CT

The April Verch Band
October 16
Buttonwood Tree Perf Arts Ctr
8pm / $15 / $18 door
New Album - Bright Like Gold
All Ages
April Verch has never sounded more comfortable in her own skin than she does now. She seamlessly blends the traditions of roots music and step-dancing with her own artistic voice and vision in a high-energy show that puts her award-winning fiddling and songwriting talents out front.
Her newest album Bright Like Gold, captures a woman who’s fleshed out her
identity and is in full command of her gifts, a woman who’s grown from a prodigy into an enduring artist—one of music’s most unforgiving public transitions—with grace and grit to spare.
The April Verch Band—rounded out by bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters and guitarist Hayes Griffin, who has a Masters in jazz improv from the New England Conservatory— is an energetic, virtuosic, tradition-celebrating outfit, not to mention one that’s not soon forgotten when they depart the stage. It doesn’t hurt that the thrilling grand finale involves Verch fiddling and step dancing—and often executing two entirely different intricate rhythmic patterns—at once.

THE HUFFINGTON POST
“It’s hard to believe she’s so talented at such a wide range of fiddling. I’ve seen her do it live, though. Believe it or not, she’s really that good.”
CMT EDGE
“Verch is a dynamic performer who incorporates step dancing into her show, and it
always brings down the house.”
THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION
“The world-renowned fiddler and step dancer continues to impress with her skills as an artist, adding songwriter to her credits with thoughtful and captivating lyrics.”
THE NEWS & OBSERVER
“One of the most versatile artists of traditional music’s new breed…Verch sings with a stark intensity that seems to echo the fire in her fiddle.”

About the POLITICHICKS

In their brand new book, What Women Really Want, Ann-Marie Murrell, Morgan Brittany and Dr. Gina Loudon describe what many women feel regarding a woman’s place in society and why they don’t need feminism. “Women can be warriors without burning bras. Women can be strong without emasculating their husbands and sons. Women can be mothers without coddling or compromise. Most importantly, women can live out their faith without imposed compromise of her convictions. Women can be truly feminine, and it is in that design, that she is most competent and capable of truly changing the world.”
The PolitiChicks were nominated the “People’s Choice Blogger of the Year” at CPAC in 2012. PolitiChicks.tv began as a Conservative web TV talk show, but in 2012, PolitiChicks Nat’l Director/Editor-in-Chief Ann-Marie Murrell completely re-vamped the PolitiChicks.tv website. Gathering 50 writers across the United States, the new PolitiChicks Nation was born. Led by PolitiChicks.tv anchors Morgan Brittany, Gina Loudon and Ann-Marie, PolitiChicks.tv continues to represent independent, activist Conservative women, providing the latest news, original commentary, and interviews with the nation’s political leaders, newsmakers and Conservative entertainers.
