Fortnite’s Music Series Is Branching Out

Published

on

traveling

There was a time when Fortnite was just a game. It seems a very long time ago now – and it is – but Epic Games devised Fortnite as a fun, cartoonish FPS game that might appeal to children, teenagers, and perhaps young adults as well if they were lucky. As we all now know, Fortnite is a pop culture sensation. It went viral, eventually becoming the most popular mass multiplayer game in the world and the centrepiece of a bitter, protracted legal battle between Epic Games and Apple. It’s also expanded its sphere of influence to other entertainment mediums – most notably music.

The line between music and other forms of digital entertainment has been getting blurry for a while, but that process was accelerated immeasurably by the events of 2020. Musicians found themselves unable to tour and, because of that, short on ways of finding additional income or engaging with large audiences to promote their latest material. Unable to meet their fans in the physical world, they turned to the virtual one instead. Epic, recognising the potential to put musicians in front of a digital audience of millions of people at a time, opened up a stage within Fortnite’s world for them to perform on. DJ Marshmello started the craze, but rapper Travis McCoy took it to new heights. When Ariana Grande performed in Fortnite this past August, she broke every conceivable record for a virtual concert performance. Once a star of Grande’s magnitude has appeared, every other major artist is bound to want to get involved.

With Grande’s performance done and in the books, most fans would probably expect the star names to keep coming. An Ed Sheeran Fortnite appearance was talked about, and some people expected to see veteran British soft rockers Coldplay turn up on the virtual stage. K-pop superstars BTS have had their music played inside Fortnite before, but some industry insiders expected them to confirm a full-on avatar performance at some stage in the next six months. No star was too big. However, it doesn’t look like any of them will appear any time soon. Epic Games has gone in a different direction. Rather than giving stage time to artists that American or European audiences are already familiar with, it seems Epic is ready to hand the opportunity to comparatively lesser-known artists instead.

The latest set of musical performances scheduled for Fortnite is called “The Soundwave Series” – and you can be forgiven if you don’t recognise a single name that’s set to appear. The focus is artists and genres from around the world, each of whom will be given their own “interactive experience” within the game as well as an appearance on the now-famous party royale island stage. The tone is best exemplified by the first artist who’s scheduled to appear – Egyptian musician Mohamed Hamaki. He opens the series – which can loosely be described as a festival – on October 1st. His showcase will last for 48 hours, although he won’t spend all of that time performing. A picture-in-picture service will be available during times that he’s “on stage” so players can enjoy his work while simultaneously blasting their way through opponents away from the party island.

While Epic Games hasn’t confirmed this (and isn’t likely to), there’s a suspicion that the company intends to take its platform and turn it into something that might rival conventional music streaming services like Spotify. If enough artists are willing to get on board with the idea, there could be a full jukebox and video service available within Fortnite that players could listen to and watch while playing their favourite game. Rather than seeing other video games as rivals, Epic might now think that its true opponents are other forms of entertainment media. They could be right. If the picture-in-picture service works for music videos, it might also work for television shows or films. There’s no technical barrier to Epic providing almost anything it wants within the Fortnite world it created – it all comes down to copyright issues and player interest. Given how dissatisfied many musicians are with Spotify’s earnings and commissions models, obtaining the necessary rights might not prove to be as difficult as it would have been as recently as two years ago.

The biggest question in all this is whether Epic will have the same success promoting lesser-known artists as it has with well-known ones. There’s undoubtedly a crossover between music fans and video game fans, but is the crossover big enough for gamers to willingly engage with musicians they’ve never heard of while playing games? If we use the online slots industry as an example, the answer to that question is probably “yes.” During the past ten years, several famous and not-so-famous bands and artists have licensed their music to online slots, and they’ve reaped the rewards for doing so. Guns n’ Roses were the first to the table and, to date, the most successful. Their official online slots game, which features a jukebox of their classics, is one of the most popular branded slots in the world. Smaller metal bands like Saxon have since stepped up to the plate, and electronic artists like deadmau5 have also jumped aboard the online slots bandwagon. If it can work in slots, it can work in conventional gaming,

The weeks and months ahead will determine whether this latest Fortnite idea is going to take off or not, and they have an interesting list of musicians lined up to help them out with the experiment. Tones and I, one of Australia’s most promising singer-songwriters, is on the bill. French-Malian singing sensation Aya Nakamura will appear, and so will Japanese pop star Gen Hoshino. Fans of rap music might be more interested in Brazilian performer Emicida. There’s nothing on the table for fans of rock music yet, but that’s not to say that more names won’t be added in the coming days. Fortnite is now officially open to musicians from all over the world. We might be about to get the first-ever musician who was made famous by Fortnite rather than appearing in the game because of their fame. This is the next step of the game’s evolution – and a sure sign that Epic intends for it to stick around for many more years to come.

Easy and Effective PPC Audit Checklist

Published

on

If PPC advertising is a part of your marketing strategy, you must understand PPC audits play an important role. Continuously performing a PPC audit will ensure that all your campaigns are optimized for positive results. It will give you an overview of the performance, so you will get an idea of the campaigns where you need to make changes and the mistakes you are making. To carry out a PPC audit swiftly and effectively, you need to create a checklist first and then follow it. Here’s an easy and effective checklist you can follow:

Track Your Conversion Rate: If you are running an ad campaign, the first thing that you must do is track your conversion rate. This way, you can make sure that your strategies are working. And if it is not bringing in enough conversion as it is supposed to, you can make the required changes. However, to track the conversion rate, you need reliable PPC Audit Software that will tell you exactly how your campaign is performing and not the number of visits.

Always Recheck Your Target Audience Setting: Before creating the campaign, you must already have a set of audiences that you want to target depending on your industry niche, geography, and age group. While setting your targeted audience is easy to set using the audit tool, it is also pretty easy to make mistakes, which can end up costing you a lot. So, you should always review your target settings. When you are setting your targeted audience, you need to consider some important aspects, such as whether you want your ad to show on a mobile, tablet, or just on the computer. You may also want to ensure that you have set the right target location.

If You Haven’t already, Consider Adding Ad Extensions: If you are not using ad extensions, you should start using them, as they can have an impact on your ad ranking. When you perform your PPC audit, make sure that all your ad extensions are working well. These ad extension optimizations will vary depending on the type of extension you have used in your PPC campaign.

Review Your Budget: When you audit your strategy, you need to make sure that you are using the set budget effectively. You should check where you are using your budget, whether it’s in a low conversion rate campaign or a campaign that’s yielding a high conversion rate. If you see that most of your budget is going towards that campaign that’s bringing in less conversion rate, you should bid less on it.

Check The Performance Of Your Keywords: You may also want to look into the performance of the keyword that you have used. Identify the keywords that are performing well and the ones that are not. You can then add the keywords that are not performing well into the negative keyword list. As for the keywords that are converting well, you can bid more on them and optimize them to improve their performance more.

Evaluate The Effectiveness of Your Ad Strategy: The final step is to do a complete evaluation of your ad campaign. When performing the final evaluation, recheck the message of your campaign, ensure that your CTA is effective, make sure that the keywords that are performing well are optimized, ensure that your landing page is relevant, and optimize your campaign for conversion.

While this list is not the complete checklist, you can begin with these and work your way up.

How to Wear Yeezy – Yeezy Sneaker Outfit Ideas for Women

Published

on

By

It’s important to keep the rest of your wardrobe casual when wearing Yeezy sneakers. Kanye West created the Yeezy line in collaboration with sports conglomerates – Adidas and Nike, ensuring high-quality materials and manufacturing. The novelty of the designs and the strange textiles used in some of the models are the most noticeable features of Yeezys. Even though some of the models are exclusively branded as menswear (Yeezy shoes for men), Yeezys are worn by both men and women. If you want to follow Kanye’s lead on how to wear Yeezys, you’ll notice that he favors graphic T-shirts and skinny jeans.

However, as a female wearer, you have a lot more options when it comes to styling your new Yeezy shoes. Faux leather leggings, flared jeans, thin jeans, wide-cut pants, sweatpants, leggings, shorts, and skirts are all available this year. Yeezys can be worn with just about anything – shirts, sleeved tees (short & long), sweaters and cropped tops in the summer.

What kind of pants and skirts work well with Yeezys?

This is dependent on your body type and overall style to some extent. On the other hand, Kanye wears tapered jeans with a loose fit around the hips and a narrow bottom. This helps to bring attention to your sneakers while also being comfortable around the hip and waist. Longer pants can also be allowed to gather up at the bottom if desired. Wear slender jeans in blue denim, brown, or black if your hips are slim. Wear shredded denim jeans for a more edgy look.

Shorts, leggings, and joggers for summer

You may also pair Yeezy shoes with solid-colored leggings or jogging trousers for a different look. This is a great look for running around town, going to the gym, or participating in a variety of sports activities. Men and women both are Yeezy reps, and pairing these Yeezys with grey or black joggers will give you a beautiful, clean look.

Shorts go well with Yeezys in the summer, whether they’re denim shorts for a casual look or stretchy training shorts. Add a graphic T-shirt or a sleeveless, spaghetti-strapped top to your shorts and Yeezys, as this 90’s style top is back in style.

Short dresses and mini-skirts

Wear a mini-skirt or short dress if you want a sensual, boyish style for daytime or a night out. Especially with V2s and 350s, this ensemble looks best with bare legs and no-show socks. Also, try to coordinate your mini-skirt and top to wear the same color for a longer silhouette and a more appealing overall effect.

Also, keep in mind that Yeezys aren’t typically worn with formal outfits. You’ll wind up with an outfit that has an identity crisis if you wear Yeezys with a formal gown.

This year and in the future, you should pair these sneakers with your casual attire, which will include oversized sweaters, sweatshirts, and T-shirts.

Tops with a lot of room and trendy hues

When paired with new Yeezy shoes, oversized tees in a simple color create a hip-hop look. In fact, oversized sweaters, coats, and tees will be mainstream fashion in 2021, so look for one size larger clothing than your typical size. Summer pastels and stylish colors like salmon-pink, coral-orange, various shades of light blue and aqua, and mint green are all good choices to pair with your V2 or 350 sneakers.

These are some of the styling tips that women could incorporate into their outfits when repping the new Yeezys.

Setting Sail to Celebrate the U.S. Navy’s Birthday and History With U.S. Money Reserve

Published

on

By

Birthday

Continuing to honor active and retired Navy members and their families

Since 1775, the U.S. Navy has worked to serve and protect the United States as the maritime service branch of the United States Armed Forces. What started as a lone ship with fewer than 100 sailors has evolved into a fleet of more than 400 vessels, half a million active-duty and reserve personnel, and more than four million living U.S. Navy veterans. Six of our 46 U.S. presidents served in the U.S. Navy.

October is a special month for the U.S. Navy. October 13 marks the Navy’s 246th birthday, followed by Navy Day on October 27. In celebration of these special events honoring the U.S. Navy, U.S. Money Reserve explores the history of these holidays. U.S. Money Reserve also shares numerous ways for Americans to celebrate and support current and former members of the U.S. Navy and provides examples of how it has shown support for the Navy over the years.

Legacy Beyond Land: U.S. Navy Predates America.

Interestingly, the U.S. Navy was established before America itself was. Originally known as the Continental Navy, its purpose was to capture British ships in support of the War for Independence. After the War, Congress moved to reestablish the Navy in 1775 and created a Department of the Navy in 1798 to organize policy, coordinate efforts, and reinforce foreign relations.

Over two-and-a-half centuries of service later, the U.S. Navy has defended our nation through two World Wars, a Civil War, and countless international engagements ranging from peacekeeping efforts to military conflicts.

Unique Ways to Celebrate the U.S. Navy

The Navy’s birthday is a time for active-duty members, veterans, their families, and all Americans to celebrate the deep history of this military branch. Navy Day differs from the Navy’s birthday by specifically focusing on individuals who have committed themselves to military service rather than the Navy as an organization. In 1922, U.S. President Warren G. Harding wrote to Secretary of the Navy Edwin Denby regarding Navy Day, “From our earliest national beginnings the Navy has always been, and deserved to be, an object of special pride to the American people.”

Traditional U.S. Navy birthday celebrations are an occasion for active-duty Navy personnel to come together in appreciation of one another and the institution they represent. Each year, the chief of naval operations shares a message of thanks and resolve. In 2020, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday called on the Navy to remain courageous and “look to our bright future ahead” even as “this birthday is different than in past years” given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Official commemoration ceremonies often include the reading of these messages as well as a ringing of each ship’s bell nine times. A ship’s bell is used to indicate time and for other special announcements, and for the Navy’s birthday it rings nine times—eight to mark the “end of watch,” representing the end of the current birthday year, and once more to mark the start of the new watch, representing the start of the new birthday year.

U.S. Money Reserve engages in and encourages the support and commemoration of the nation’s armed forces. Thanking active members and veterans for their service can be among the most meaningful gestures. Many veterans’ facilities and organizations welcome support, sponsorship, and donations year-round. Visits to museums, some of which are created on retired naval battleships, present opportunities to educate the entire family and create awareness. Holding and attending parades, performances, and luncheons are also great ways to engage the community in celebration of the Navy’s history and achievements.

Commemorating the Navy with U.S. Money Reserve

In the spirit of honoring those who serve in our nation’s military forces and ensuring their legacy, U.S. Money Reserve launched two exclusive gold and silver coin series in years past. These include the Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary coin series in 2016 and the Iwo Jima 75th Anniversary coin series in 2020. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Pearl Harbor coins helped further the initiatives of the United States Navy Memorial, from the installation of the Lone Sailor statue “standing watch” over the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, to sponsoring Lone Sailor Awards ceremonies over the years.

U.S. Money Reserve has also taken part in other activities and community support over the years, including a ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum in 2019. For this event, U.S. Money Reserve helped commemorate the opening of a new interactive World War I exhibit by presenting the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation with a “Great War Series” gold and silver five-coin set. U.S. Money Reserve also made a donation to help fund the completion and opening of the exhibit.

Museum president and retired Marine Lt. Gen. Duane Thiessen remarked at the event, “The generosity of the U.S. Money Reserve team will only help foster the understanding and appreciation for those who served during this time and especially for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for future generations.”

Together, both organizations made commitments to raise awareness regarding the crucial role of naval aircraft in our nation’s history.
