The show also briefly touches on the iPad launch and the not so surprising Ricky Martin entertainment news.
The show starts off with a notably bright change in its virtual set, "The tone of the show is rather tongue-in-cheek anyway, so going with the bold strokes crayon-type news set is kinda fun." says host David Kamatoy.
On the first part of the show David features Blogs.com, a top ten blog site run by Six Apart, "A great resource for successful blogs." WrongButFunny.com is highlighted as blogger Brad French's Peep Photography was chosen for the Top Ten in the Chicago Tribune's annual "Peeps Diorama Contest." Twitter sites to explore include splitweet.com, tweetdeck, and mashable. David also talks about comically being denied access to a twitter group promoting blogs and a somewhat annoying example of email marketing. Ricky Martin's unsurprising revelation of his personal preferences also pops up in this section of the show.
The second part of the show is a promotional interview between TV Personality Terry Burhans and Mick Moore, The Internet Entrepreneur.

Entrepreneur/Entertainer Explores New Possibilities
San Diego, CA - Entrepreneur, Marketing Master, and Entertainer David Kamatoy kicks off his new online program, "Blog This," with a look at the Internet, technology, and theater. This first in a new series of video programs sets a tone for an irreverent look at information, technology, and "whatever we feel like covering." In the inaugural webisode, David Kamatoy discusses blogging and tweeting, reviews some of the new smart phones, and looks back at opening night of a local production of August Wilson's "The Piano Lesson."
"Blog This" is targeted at entrepreneurs, entertainers, and e-marketers...
"Blog This" is targeted at entrepreneurs, entertainers, and e-marketers, but provides enough information and entertainment to keep any Internet video watcher coming back for more. David Kamatoy begins his first episode with an explanation of blogging and how it relates to video blogging, podcasting, and traditional media. One of the goals of "Blog This" is helping people better understand the role of blogging in promoting businesses and projects. The program itself is very much in a blog format. "What's unique about the content of this show is that it's literally going to be on random formats," says creator and host David Kamatoy. The focus of the show will be on content, but presented in a variety of ways to reflect the ecclectic format of blogs.
One of the goals of "Blog This" is helping people better understand the role of blogging in promoting businesses and projects. The program itself is very much in a blog format.
In his technology section, David Kamatoy looks at and compares the Palm Pre, the Nexus One, the Blackberry 8330, and the iPhone. More than just comparing, he delves into some of the plusses and minuses of both the various phones and their carriers. David Kamatoy provides his own particular take on the good, the bad, and the just plain strange of these smart phones and their technology, and gives some advice on when to get into smart phones. There are also short discussions of the new Google "Buzz" and the new Facebook format.
David Kamatoy finishes up this episode of "Blog This" with his video interviews of Mark Christopher Lawrence (NBC's "Chuck") and other members of the cast of the Cygnet Theatre production of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, "The Piano Lesson." Much of the footage was filmed during the opening night celebration, held at Cafe Coyote in San Diego's Old Town area, with clips from the play interspersed among the interviews.

In the Las Vegas production of “Jersey Boys,” verbiage was
appropriately changed from “So the next time you’re in Vegas…” to “So
while you’re in Vegas…”
Similarly, on September 12, 2009 - now officially known as “Christian Hoff Day” in sunny San Diego, California (yes, that Christian Hoff
- who knew?) - the home-grown Tony-award winning actor/singer/dancer
changed the last line of the Drifters’ (and George Benson) classic On
Broadway from “and I won’t quit ’til I’m a star…” to “and I didn’t
quit; now I’m a star…on Broadway.”
How does it affect a Pay-Per post model like payperpost.com or socialspark. Are we going to have to make a note in every post that we are sponsored by a product if we write about it or can I just create a side column that says, "SPONSORED BY"?
What if your blogging about your own product? Do I have to put a disclaimer in my own post touting my own product?
The good news about this trend is that it is proof that blogging has become a major part of the advertising, marketing and PR landscape.
The bad news is that it's going to make it tough to deal with in
reality especially on twitter.
It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out.
Let me know your thoughts (PLEASE COMMENT ON THE BLOG.) We will talk about it on the show this week
Here are Ten Twitter Tips, social media and it's best and worst. Hopefully this will inspire a few ideas on how to build and monetize your database using twitter. This post will be discussed on the David Kamatoy Radio Show.
Ten Twitter Tips, Successful and Unsuccessful
Examples with David Kamatoy and Morgan Westerman. Morgan Westerman
created one of the most successful viral videos of the internet and has
recently focused his energy on social media. In just a few short months
he has gathered about 25,000 followers on twitter. He is currently
working with entrepreneurs on best practices in sales conversion. He
can be followed @morganwesterman.
They rewarded dell followers by promoting refurbished gear specifically and have noted sales to prove it.
THE LESSON: They created a specific type of reward and message that was different from their other marketing. In tandem with the reality that most twitter followers will be a bit tech savvy purchasing online this was a good match.
The result would have been different if they didn't do the discounted and refurbished sales.
2. Steve Agee, The Sarah Silverman Project: Steve Agee comedian started off his twitter following by pulling off a stunt on Ustream.tv about reading all first 5,000 names live on air when he hit 5,000. He is currently at 863,420.
Really good example of someone in the public spotlight using that publicity to gather a following in a new genre. Dane Cook did it on myspace and now Steve Agee is doing it on twitter.
ENTERTAINER TIP: Remember that when your on a hit show or in the limelight. Use it to build your database. Anyone in this side of the business knows that you never know when your going to get your show canceled. In radio they often sell the station out from under you with very little rumbling. If they told you the advertisers would go away.
OWN YOUR OWN DATABASE AND GET THEM TO AM EMAIL LIST
4. Straight to Sales: Straight to SPAM! http://twitter.com/Wealth_Formula No Humanity This is perfect example of what does not work and will most likely be deleted as spam. Straight to a landing page with only one message. REALLY!!!
5. Good Porn Bad Porn: http://twitter.com/A_Dempsey While this may go straight to a porn link the good thing is the quotes and a varying message. Sneaky Porn Spam generally bad.
The Lessons: 1. Use a landing page as seen below. 2. Quotes can be quite useful if used correctly. Choosing quotes that are related to your subject matter and then either blogging about them or just reference them back to you is a good idea in creating an ideal emotion. 3. It's public people remember that journalists are now quoting "tweets".
THREE TWITTER TIPS
7. Customize your twitter page. I use Google's picassa to create a collage using pictures and logos. You have to play with the output settings to get it right but it's a great free application.
If you truly want to convert to sales or interactivity then you have to earn the respect of your followers through credibility. Therefore push content...
Blog postings- Like this one.
Email Marketing: Jugglemail emails create unique URL's that can be easily posted onto twitter. We do it all the time with our press release emails.
Other peoples content: rt someone elses tweet usually garners attention and is often reciprocated.
10. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery: Pay attention to who you and others pay attention to and then customize that style to your own.
BONUS Final Advice: Remember that ultimately you don't own your twitter,facebook or myspace profiles. They can be deleted at anytime for complaints, overuse, spam. To top it all off the parameters are constantly changing.
TIP: Covert to a real email and contact information as quickly as possible for real contacts.
We do this using the auto responders on our jugglemail system or just dropping them into the system upon approval.

The way we covered the Christian Hoff event is to me the future of the best use of some of internet technology that's available to us now.
Interviews and Excerpts that are important to a small group but done in an interesting way. Then posted to the internet using the current technology at hand.
At the same time I am able to connect with that niche group but through the power of networking you never know who is in that small group. I have seen it again and again that the raising of capital, the closing of a business deal, the distribution of a project starts with an introduction.
What we did was a notch up because of the kind of accounts that I have at youtube and viddler. I can post upgraded long form videos. I could have covered the same event by just snapping some photos, writing about it and maybe even use a flip phone but instead I used a baby canon HD camera and posted it in HD on youtube.
The video category is in the search engines is still a huge opportunity. We saw a few years ago that the video category would not just be about entertainment but about knowledge as well. FAQ's, How to's, podcasts, resume's are all being creating in a visual format as well as text.
The search engines are constantly looking for impressions and listings in separate categories of the web. At Kamatoy Media we mine blogs, video, news, mini-blogging which helps the main web search category.
The bad thing is that I have a mountain of video to go. While at the same time creating new and relevant material on the live streaming show
The hardest thing about the journey for me is to accept that every time we create something that I can see a better way to do it even with the limited resources that are available from event to event.

Social Media is the buzz right now. Many professionals in the media world are being inundated with requests about social media. In fact many businesses are contacting professionals saying, "I only want to talk about Social Media"
Social Media is really the long tail of PR, PR builds a brand and so does social media. Here are some key points that I intend to elaborate on in the show and in our work.
Concept #1: Advertising and Marketing is the first thought of Entrepreneurs and Business owners when they try to develop leads and business, but there are some inherent problems...
a. Ratio 1:1 3:1- Your goal in an advertising budget is to create a 3:1+ ratio. In other words for every dollar you spend you get 3 back. If you create a 1:1 ratio it might be working and needs some tweaking but most likely you are doing something right. 2:1-3:1 is getting much better. Your going to profit from this if your margins are correct.
The problem with advertising is the INITIAL INVESTMENT....
You have to spend money to find the right formula in advertising. Each and every medium and category has it's own price point as well. In other words $5,000 dollars may seem like a lot of money to you but that's one ad in a publication for a week, a day, a month. $b. 5,000 can be spent in Pay Per Click in a an hour if you wanted in the right category.
The good news is that your response is usually immediate good or bad.
You have to be willing to invest the money into the test phase in order to find that ratio.
That investment should be based ultimately on how much money you want to make a month a quarter, etc. In other words If you want to create $10,000 in sales a month then you should consider a $3333.33 a month budget. Adjust the ratio accordingly to testing, market and category.
b. Because advertising is our initial response to more sales. We try to equate that same model to PR and Social Media. That is not going to work because Social Media is about long ball and interacting with your database to find out what they actually like.
THROW THE SPAGHETTI ON THE WALL AND SEE IF IT STICKS.
Social Media allows you to build a database and experiment with that database as you grow. Time and Money spent in social media can move you into a smart advertising campaign.
Social Media like Search Engine Optimization can have long lasting effects that pay exponentially over time.
The great thing about social media is that it is scalable. You can do it yourself for relatively low cost meaning that your going to put more time than money into it. However if your time is better served in running your business than getting a firm like ours to manage social media is a smart move. www.KamatoyMediaGroup.com can be reached at 619-573-9456
(This is a working concept and it shall be continued...)
David was great to work with just a great guy who obviously did a lot of homework to get MonkeyHook.com to market he shares this knowledge by helping other entrepreneurs do the same with their products.
The Gorilla Guy Stan was just fun. Thank you Mr. Stanton.
I really can see this format starting to work for us. I think I can get a few more videos out of the show.
