Partners with Flip Video and Duke Struck, Emmy Award Winning Producer Giving Popular Mom Bloggers the Power of Video
October 22 2008 Ft. Lauderdale, FL. NewBaby.com is pioneering Vlogging with the first-ever Mom Vlogger Network in partnership with Flip Video and Emmy Award winning producer Duke Struck.
Timing could not be better for the NewBaby Vlogger Network with the rise of popularity of online videos. Research conducted by BSM Media, a Marketing-to-Moms firm, points to online video as the next preferred media among Moms. It is no secret that Moms share information with other Moms; in fact, over 80% of moms have viewed at least one online video in the last 7 days, watching up to 11 videos during an online session.
NewBaby.com has teamed up with Flip Video, the line of handheld camcorders that is revolutionizing home videos, and Duke Struck, 14-time Emmy Award winning producer, to give their Mom vloggers the resources and platform to film and share their videos. Made up of highly influential Moms Bloggers and parenting experts, the NewBaby Vlogger Network is pioneering the way in which Moms share and connect with each other.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with such a diverse and respected group of Moms to bring another dimension to NewBaby from sharing tips to capturing significant moments of their child’s growth,” said Bob Sullivan, co-founder of NewBaby.com.
Armed with Flip Cameras, NewBaby’s Vloggers chronicle their journey through motherhood and share insights on parenting. Wendy Stetson, of Babies Gotta Have It provides reviews of baby products while Mom Blog Favorite, Stephanie Precourt of Adventures in Babywearing will be filming installments on welcoming her fourth child. Fifteen NewBaby Vloggers will cover topics from the best positions to burp a baby to pregnancy secrets that your doctor might not tell you.
“Vlogs allow Moms to learn and share with other Moms while they make dinner and answer homework questions,” said Maria Bailey, co-founder of NewBaby.com and author of the new book "Mom 3.0: Marketing with Today's Mothers by Leveraging New Media & Technologies."
