This isn't necessarily a post about upcoming projects since I'm drowning in useless busy work here in college, but I'm still trying to incorporate work and play.
So in my Marketing Class, there is a project that lasts for the whole semester where we choose a product/project/site/service/whatever and report about its info, trends, etc, that are relatable to what we learn in class. Sooo I chose Newgrounds as a site that I'm basically doing market research on. Now granted, this is just an intro course, I know nothing about marketing, I thought it would not be interesting at all, and once again I don't know squat about marketing, but as a month rolled on by this semester I gotta say I found it pretty, PREETTY interesting.
In my project I am a "representative" of Newgrounds and going against two other "representatives" in my class, Youtube and Vimeo. It's kinda like a battle royale against why the site we represent is more beneficial for the consumer. The consumer in this case is the teacher who is representing different types of consumers such as a small gaming studio/artists/programmers/etc.
This is one of the few school assignments that I have been having quite a bit of fun doing because its neat seeing the correlation of all the marketing readings/definitions/assignments to Newgrounds and using these correlations to strengthen my case against "YouTube" and "Vimeo". I have to admit, making a case against Youtube is gonna be haaard but I got this.
I gotta say haha thanks to Mike, using Swivel in my paper and presentation is really going to help me give a leg up against my representative competitors.
I'm hoping that after this semester I'll be able to show what I've written and my presentation for my case for Newgrounds and why it really is "everything by everyone".
Sides that....how you doin'?
