“Noted” items are quick finds from my daily reading. You can see a complete list of Noted Items here.
If I’m going to tell companies that content marketing is important, I should probably give my thoughts on how to make it useful. I’m thinking about blogging, podcasting, shooting photos, making video, and all the other tools social media allows us to use to tell stories (not market). In my ideas, I give you nuggets of what matters to me in media making, and what I believe will matter to your prospective audience.

Music Execs To Stage Benefit Show For Deb Flanagan
Billboard.biz, April 13, 2009
By Ed Christman, N.Y.
A number of music industry executives and artist are putting together a benefit for Deb Flanagan, a long-time music industry executive who has been diagnosed with ALS, which is more commonly known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.”
A live performance will be held April 18 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Talking Stick Coffeehouse in Venice, Calif.
Due to ALS, Flanagan, a vibrant, active woman, “has lost many abilities of her body and is degenerating every day,” writes Music Millennium owner Terry Currier in an e-mail to industry friends about the event. “Although Deb’s laughter and smiles have not stopped,” she requires professional full time assistance and care to meet her daily needs and is now being cared for at Marquis Care in Portland, Ore., with support of the Vital Life Foundation.
The benefit fundraiser is to assist in Flanagan’s medical cost since she is only partially funded for health care, according to the e-mail.
The event will be presented by TK Promotions (promoter Toni Koch) and Warrior Girl Music (Gilli Moon), in association with the New Media Interchange. Performers include the Gilli Moon Band, Coco O’Connor, Christopher and Natasha Barran, Marian Call, Miri Hunter Haruach and Paul McCarty, a New Orleans raised/Los Angeles-based singer/composer.
Donations can be made through a paypal account set up for the event or checks can be mailed to: “DEB FLANAGAN BENEFIT ACCOUNT” c/o Music Millennium, Attn: Terry, 3158 East Burnside, Portland, Ore., 97214. For more information, contact: email@example.com.

Interesting story on turning New Media success into traditional media dollars.
Garyvee (aka Gary Vay•ner•chuk) is crushing it. The wine retailer-turned-video-blogger is cashing in his Internet fame for a seven-figure, 10-book deal with HarperStudio. That comes to at least $100,000 per book, which is decent for
first-timean unproven author, but he is going to have to hustle to keep up the interest for ten books. His first one comes out in September, and is called: Crush It! Turn Your Passion into Profits in a Digital World.
One thing Vay•ner•chuck has going for him is a built-in audience he cultivated one e-mail at a time, starting with his his popular video wine blog, Wine Library TV. Then he started branching out beyond wine into marketing, motivational speaking, other Web video shows, wine-review site Corkd, and even T-shirt search (because everyone is always looking for a good T-shirt).
