“The idea of the events is to learn and connect, and to look outside of our own very specific verticals — and the website is a direct extension of that,” said Pat Coyle, president of Coyle Media. “We’re not going to have a huge staff of writers and necessarily try to be something like [digital media news site] Mashable. But we’ll put a lot of emphasis on curation and conversation within the community.”
DFMBiz.com will be monetized primarily by sponsorship, with many companies purchasing combined packages for the site and conferences.
Coyle, the former executive director of digital business for the Indianapolis Colts, will maintain his digital sports-oriented consulting and business development practice.
“A lot of the consulting clients are coming in some fashion from the events, and that’s where we’re meeting people and beginning a lot of these relationships, so there’s definitely interconnection between these pieces of the business,” Coyle said.
