Venture Status Report

This report had relatively humble beginnings. We were curious about how many people agreed with the report issued by KPMG for the BCSC on the state of the Venture market. 2 weeks and many hours later, we have the final report. Our thanks to the 94 people who spent at least 10 minutes to complete the survey. Our thanks also to Rick Rule and Jim Mustard for reviewing the results and contributing their thoughts in the form of interviews. As this report came together, we realized that there was more content than could be contained in a single article on ...

Venture Status Survey

On October 17, 2013, the BC Securities Commission released a report based on a survey of 15 junior mining CEO's that "confirmed that the majority of root causes and issues were due to the cyclical nature of the mining industry". We heard from a number of people in the market saying this did not represent their views. In the spirit of being independent and unbiased, Resource Investing News is conducting a new survey of the junior mining market. We are sending emails to over 1000 leaders of these companies across the country to find out what they think. We ...

eBooks - Good for Investors, Good for Advertisers

We are always on the lookout for new and better ways to serve our audience and advertisers. As is often the case, our most recent innovation does both. We publish new articles and interviews every day. For the most part, everything we publish will remain on our network forever, for people who want to check the archives. But after an article comes off the home page, the number of people reading it drops dramatically. But there are some stories that are bigger and deserve more attention than they are given. So we have started doing eBooks. You can check these ...

Educating Investors

Education has always been a focus of what we offer our investor audience. In fact, I recently found a document describing our company from June 2008 that includes the line: There are many investment media companies that not many do a good job of educating new investors, creating truly valuable branding opportunities for early stage companies and then connecting the investors with the companies. Today we find education is becoming more and more important in how we operate as a publishing company. Search Engine Optimization or SEO originally meant trying to trick the search engines into sending their audience to ...

Downsizing

I’ve always said life is about the highs and the lows. If my life were moderate all the time, I would end up changing it. Of course, in this blog I mostly talk about the highs. And there have been many. But lows happen too and they are important. Currently INN is still very focused on the resource market and the resource market is very cyclical. Right now, it is at a point that many have called an historic low. And while we still have many great clients, we now have many great former clients. Clients who still believe ...

Notes from Leadcon 2013

Chris and I recently attended Leadscon in Las Vegas. This is likely a show you have not heard of before, but it was Chris’s second time there (my first). Their tagline is “THE Lead Generation Conference”. Since generating leads is an important part of what we do for our advertisers, it’s important for us to go and find out what is new among the much bigger leaders in this market in the US. Some important points I took from the show. Click through rates in 2013 are 0.05% across the web. So for every 10,000 times ...
