360 MAGAZINE Swarovski encrusted bottle designed by Vaughn Lowery for NFT-VIP and minted on Solana

NFT-VIP

NFT-VIP is hosting its inaugural conference in the tech space to network their businesses, advance knowledge and engage intimately. In the recent past, similar NFT meetups have been held in multiple cities across America: Miami, New York City and Los Angeles. This year, NFT-VIP will be holding its series at Margaritaville Resort Time Square, June 19 – 22. 360 MAGAZINE serves as the official media sponsor of the episode.

As a rapidly growing digital industry, NFT-VIP has become a popular way for people to trade outside the conventional financial system. It continues to stimulate the development of a virtual economy based on digital strengths in various forms: music, art and fashion.

“The idea of using cryptocurrencies is not only a form of currency. Along with a deliverable channel, knowing that entities could be built on them and using them is mind-blowing,” states Julie Lamb, CEO of NFT-VIP. This is the first major 360 MAG Podcast promotion that will serve as the official launch. Interviewee Jefferson Noel is scheduled to speak on the NFT-VIP agenda. Other notable guests: Andrew Yang, Young Paris, Alex Alpert, Vaughn Lowery, Chris Carter, Genesis Johnson, postVerrone, Fanzo, Sal DiGuardia and FoodMasku.

The NFT-VIP festival was fabricated with the unique digital identifier enthusiast in mind, providing a golden opportunity to intensify transmissions and interrelations. The number of leading brands and celebrities involved in this field is increasing exponentially with the world’s first and largest crypto collectibles market—OpenSea. With that, 360 MAGAZINE has minted and released a loveable Animal set.

As a media partner, 360 MAGAZINE aims to liaise between NFT-VIP participants and disadvantaged business enterprises. 360 is determined to spread the word on NFT-VIP to countless cohorts: the elderly, women, racialized groups and the queer community. “We now coexist in a multi-generational society with multi-racial people who have multi-educational backgrounds and who possess multi-hyphen lifestyles. Our purpose here is to create an environment of inclusiveness and to further facilitate sustainable relationships beyond the metaverse,” Lowery shares.

During the engagement, 360’s Swarovski encrusted bottle, made in collaboration with Integrity Bottles and Good Vibe Gliders, will be forged on Solana with partial proceeds donated to a charity. 360, freshly announced pet NFT, apace with Reebok’s Looney Tunes footwear, will go to a handful of lucky guests with Best Tech Style. Additionally, in real time, the publication will interview the speakers in their ecletic enclosure with bean bags and a bejeweled e-bike.

North Star Boys: Asian-American Content Group 

From time to time, one comes across a galaxy of new talents. NSB is the acronym for North Star Boys. The name for the group derives from the essence of The North Star, known as the anchor of the northern sky. Those who follow it often find new direction, leading to a certain destination. 

Since ancient times, many Asians have followed the North Star as it represents both a beacon of inspiration and hope for the future. Thus, Oliver Moy and Sebastian Moy commend the advice of their mother. Mama Moy encouraged them to follow their ‘North Star;’ and she was convinced it would lead them to their dreams. Oliver maintains that, “I always wanted to be an inspiration and a voice for other Asian Americans, so I thought it was a perfect idea to call us the guys from North Star.”

Conjured by the Moy brothers, NSB is the first Asian American mixed media septet. The group consists of seven cronies: the Moy brothers, Ryan Nguyen, Regie Macalino, Kane Ratan, Darren Liang and Justin Phan. Furthermore, upon meeting Tyler Bray, at an industry mixer, he immediately witnessed potential and signed them to his management company. After all, they became an overnight internet sensation adored by millions.

Listen to NSB on 360 MAG Podcast.

Watch you are my star video.

Oliver wrote and produced the highly anticipated debut single, you are my star. This song is a hit! Approximately composed in 30 minutes, he recalls, “It was quite easy to write about how I feel at this point in my life, so after putting it together I went straight to recording on a computer.” Upon its release, it achieved instant success after being marketed by HitCo Entertainment–an imprint co-founded by L.A. Reid and Charles Goldstuck. The label’s immediate directives: artist development, innovativeness and multi-platform content creation. Lastly, HitCo possesses an impressive roster: Big Boi (Outkast), Dinah Jane (Fifth Harmony), Dixie D’Amelio as well as French Montana.  

Following the release, NSB performed at The Roxy Theatre and graced the cover of TIDAL’s Global Pop. Moreover, the ensemble was listed on Spotify’s New Music Friday and Amazon Music’s Breakthrough Pop playlists. 

Soon after their inauguration (August 2021), they quickly achieved notoriety–largely attributed to their charisma, content fabrication and fan engagement. 

Six months later, they far exceeded expectations and attained millions of followers across various social platforms: TikTok, Instagram and YouTube. 

During their 360 chat, NSB acknowledges Tyler as an extremely successful enterpriser. Subsequent to being saluted by Forbes 30 Under 30, Tyler wanted to formulate a collective of like-minded individuals whose sole directive is to “inspire and be the Asian representation in the media that they did not see growing up.” 

Holding firm to their convictions, NSB hosted their inaugural meet and greet in Times Square for their devoted fans, affectionately referred to as Stars. “We had a great impact, because we expected 200 people to come and more than 1,500 came,” they tell us.

Behind the album release, NSB plans to embark on a major city concert series in The Big Apple, Chicago, Dallas as well as a world tour that kicks off in the Philippines.

Mistakes to Avoid When Marketing on Reddit

Reddit is a powerful marketing tool, but it can be easy to make costly mistakes if you’re not familiar with how it works. So, this post will outline some of the most common errors people make when using Reddit for marketing and discuss how to avoid them. By understanding the do’s and don’ts of Reddit marketing, you can get the most out of this unique platform.

You’re Not Posting at the Right Time

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when marketing on Reddit is posting at the wrong time. Many people who are new to Reddit might make this mistake since many people post when it is a convenient time for them. However, since you are marketing and trying to reach as many people as possible, it would be a good idea to post at the best times.

How do you know when it’s a good time to post? The great thing about Reddit is that it will show you how many users are online in a specific subreddit at any given time. This means that if you want to maximize your reach, you will have to find out when the best time to post in different subreddits would be.

You’re Not Gaining Karma

Another crucial factor to consider is that on Reddit, you have to build authority. You can do that by generating karma, which is basically the points you earn when your comments or links are upvoted. This is important because the more points you have, the more authority you have on the platform, and the more likely people will be to listen to you.

One way to generate points is by using Reddit Growth Services, which will allow you to buy Reddit upvotes, which means they will upvote your comments for you and generate karma. Another way to gain Karma on Reddit is simply by participating in subreddits, commenting on posts, and providing useful links.

Your Content is Generic

The next mistake you could make when marketing on Reddit is posting very generic content. Examples of generic content include “How to Quickly Gain Instagram Followers” or “Psychology Hacks to Make People Like You.” According to The Small Business Blog, 430 million people use Reddit every month, so one thing you can be sure of is that Redditors will be very aware of generic content on the Internet and are not likely to be entertained by this sort of content on Reddit.

If people don’t find the content you post entertaining, useful, or informative, your account won’t gain any traction. However, keep in mind that there is absolutely nothing wrong with posting someone else’s content as long as it is relevant to your brand, the subreddit, or is informative or helpful.

Your Titles Aren’t Great

One thing that you need to understand fairly early on in your Reddit marketing career is that it does not matter how amazing your content is if no one is reading it. Many people don’t read content on Reddit simply because the titles aren’t great.

The good news is that there are a few tips to follow if you want to write a great title. First, you should be blatantly honest about what your content is about. You should also be specific in terms of what people can expect when reading your content and read through the subreddit rules since some could state that links aren’t allowed in a title.

You’re in the Wrong Subreddits

Finally, the biggest mistake you could make when marketing on Reddit is using the incorrect subreddits. Keep in mind that the entire purpose of marketing on Reddit is to talk to your target audience. If you are not in the correct subreddit, you won’t be targeting your audience.

A great piece of advice for marketers on Reddit would be to carefully comb through the various subreddits until you find ones applicable to your niche. It is far better to be active in a subreddit with 100 active Redditors who are part of your target audience than in an extremely popular subreddit where no one will be interested in your content.

How to Make Your Pop Culture Blog Successful

Pop culture involves a range of topics, such as celebrity updates, the latest TV shows, and movies. As long as it involves popular, new information, it falls into that niche. If you are passionate about the topic, you might consider starting a pop culture blog to share your knowledge with the rest of gossip-driven interesting reads.

Growing Your Traffic

Your readers will make your break the blog. That means you’ll want to use every tactic you can to bring in traffic and retain it. That way, the site will run well. Some tactics might work better than others, but a combination of methods is often the best. Search engine optimization involves making your site easier to find online. You might optimize the site or use specific keywords so people can find your pages. If you want to grow your revenue, it is essential to use intent SEO to outrank the competition. Since you might not be familiar with the tactics used, you can review guides to great SEO writing in a few easy steps, plus tools & pro tips.

You’ll also need to create an environment that promotes growth so your readers can engage with you. That way, they will continue to comment on meaningful posts. You need to respond to their comments and engage with them, so your audience feels it is worthwhile to come back. Consider it building a community instead of merely allowing them to read passively. Social media is an excellent channel for helping you engage with the readers. That way, they can choose the platform they are most comfortable with. If the topic allows, you might have them choose what you cover now and then.

Content Created by Pop Culture Bloggers

That means you’ll need to pick a focus for the blog. There are many options, so ensure you choose something that fits your passions. Choose something that you can make your own to give your blog more influence. You don’t have to choose the focus right away. You might decide to add more focus at a later time once you have gotten more into your topic. For instance, you might enjoy current fashions, so you might begin with hair and then move on to clothing, makeup, and other style topics. 

No matter the niche, create relevant, engaging content to help your blog stand out. Make sure that your readers can get something out of their visit to your site. It might include a unique perspective that stands out from typical blogs in your niche. Give them a reason for coming back. That is often hard since there are already many pop culture blogs out there. Do your research on how you can build your audience to bring those readers to you. Give them something they want to come back to over and over again. The more your readers want to go back, the better your readership. Let them have a say in what you post to encourage engagement. Create polls or ask them to respond in the comments section.
