FrontLine magazines are highly respected for providing objective, unbiased information to its readers. We will work with you to ensure that the media created is written to address issues from the reader?s perspective.

Conference Videos: FrontLine can video highlights of your conference. We combine presentation highlights with interviews of key people in an engaging overview of your event. This can provide a valuable reference tool, plus draw potential attendees for future events.

Spice up your marketing strategy with video.

How we promote it: We will promote your new video directly from our site, and submit it to as part of the FrontLine series of videos on YouTube. You will also be able to post it on your own web site, and take it on disk for presentations and/or handouts. To fully engage FrontLine's print reader, we will add a special reference to the video link in our print edition. The video link can be accessed directly from your ad in the digital magazine.

Timing: Typical turnaround is from 8-10 weeks. This can be sped-up under certain circumstances, and may take longer if we have to go out in the field for additional footage.

Working Together: We collaborate with you to create rich media (flash, video and animation) content that is topical, relevant and that addresses specific issues that are important to our readers. This exciting new tool provides an exceptional method of promoting your innovative value.

How it works: Here is a quick overview of how we work with you to build new content:

  1. Select a specific topic. You work with our editorial team to determine a specific topic that you want to build rich media content around.
  2. Create a script. Together, we develop a script for a 2 to 3 minute media presentation (length may vary).
  3. Gather Assets. Determine what media assets (photos, video, etc.) you have, and what needs to be sourced to create the presentation.
  4. Narration and Assembly. We develop the narration and audio track and produce the presentation based on the script.
  5. Approval and promotion. Once approved, we post the content to our site and begin promoting the content to search engines, directly to our print and web subscribers and via our website. You may also place a link on your site.
