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.

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.

Those who are currently taking online classes on business and marketing can benefit from watching the show.
"I wanted to bring Warren onto the show to discuss some of the generational issues that we are witnessing with the rise of social media. Social media is getting the buzz right now but the reality is that the same old school principles apply it's just changed forms and is highly scaleable, ultimately leveling the playing field even more." says David Kamatoy, host.
"If your interested in building your business online this is the show to watch. We understand the challenge of the entrepreneur. Your busy running your business, while marketing your business is really another full time job. We want to be able to bridge that gap with knowledge and service."
Warren was instrumental in his position at ipower, inc. one of the largest website hosting service companies on the web; where he created, implemented and managed online marketing campaigns (cpc, cpa, seo, sem, email marketing, content marketing, etc.) that assisted in taking the company from being a virtual unknown to its present ranking of #5 world-wide in the shared website hosting industry.

Jocko Marcellino of Sha Na Na to be interviewed on UStream.tv
about 40th Anniversary of Woodstock
San Diego, CA - Sha Na Na's Jocko Marcellino joins David Kamatoy live on UStream.tv and DavidKamatoy.com on Wednesday, August 12th, at 9:00 a.m. PST to talk about the festivities surrounding the Woodstock 40th Anniversary. Sha Na Na performed at Woodstock at about sunrise on the last day of the festival, just before the late Jimi Hendrix. As a founding member of Sha Na Na, Jocko Marcellino has the distinction of performing in the most successful music documentary ever, Woodstock.
Woodstock became a launching point for the group, as Sha Na Na was the only group at the festival without a record deal. They received one immediately afterward, and today the group has released more than 25 albums, with worldwide sales of more than 20 million. The group also performed in the movie musical Grease, and had their own television show from 1977 to 1981.
This week Jocko has been attending events, screenings, and reunions based on the 40th Anniversary of the Woodstock Festival. Jocko has agreed to share with David Kamatoy's audience some stories both past and present from the original Woodstock and the attention that he is getting wrapped around the 40th Anniversary. "We did 40 minutes and were paid $300,” Marcellino once recalled about the original Woodstock, “and the check bounced!"
"I want to catch up with Jocko. His story is unique in that they were a 50's tribute band that ended up with a very successful television show. Ultimately creating a strong brand with staying power." David Kamatoy comments.
To this day Sha Na Na performs over 100 shows a year, and they released a 40th Anniversary Collectors Edition CD on July 19th, 2009. Visit www.ShaNaNa.com for more information.
