Flavorpill Announces Public Launch of Daily Dose

fdailydosegg.pngYou may recall a while back we told you about Flavorpill‘s plan to launch the Daily Dose, a daily national email intended to provide a quick look at what’s new in music, print, art, film, and online. The email already boasts 100 thousand subscribers, and after some tinkering and refining it looks like they are ready to go large. Says Daily Dose editor Eli Dvorkin: “We designed the Daily Dose to contain six points of feedback, generating thousands of responses from around the world. With our public launch we’re proud to present a product that has evolved through close collaboration with our readers.”

Co-founder and CEO of Flavorpill, Mark Mangan adds, “We’ve found people like thoughtful, punchy writing delivered to them while they are at their desks. Just as the launch of Flavorwire opened us up to a broader national audience, The Daily Dose will let us interact with our readers every day and allow us to better leverage our cultural content.”

Flavorpill Goes National With a Daily Email

flvordail.pngJust a little over a month after launching their national blog Flavorwire, the folks at Flavorpill have decided to follow it up with daily national email called the Daily Dose. FBNY caught up with Flavorpill founder Mark Mangan who told us that the email had been in the works for a few months and that the goal was to be both quick and to provide the reader with “cultural things you want to consume and digest.”

It’s part of the same strategy we’ve always applied to the Flavorpill emails, which have always been about recommendation. This will be similar but more relevant in a daily way.

According to Mangan Flavorpill’s current sub-topics i.e., Art, Film, Free, More Flavor, Music, Performing Arts, and Reading will be rolled into the daily email, which will also provide links to things you can “look at, listen to, read and download.” We’re told the Daily Dose should be ready to go live within the next two weeks. Stay tuned!

Flavorpill Goes National With New Daily Blog Flavorwire

flavorwire.pngFlavorpill, the daily guide to cultural events in New York, Chicago, L.A., Miami, S.F., and London has just launched a new daily blog called Flavorwire, which will continue to cover the genres found in Flavorpill‘s newsletters but with broader overview and an eye to contemporary culture at large. Flavorwire is being edited by former Gen Art editorial director Caroline Stanley and boasts editorial direction from Elizabeth Spiers who, we are told, was brought in to hire Stanley, set up the editorial infrastructure and help develop appropriate editorial content (Spiers is also an adviser at Flavorpill). FBNY caught up with Stanley early this morning, who told us the site will be much more than an aggregate of Flavorpill’s newsletters.

Flavorwire.com content will be a mix of exclusive news, interesting features and smart commentary. There will be some callback to Flavorpill’s weekly newsletters, but the goal of the blog is to expose a respected brand to an even larger, national audience of culture lovers.

Stanley says that she will be editing the site “with contributions from Flavorpill’s talented edit staff, a small stable of freelance writers, and a few plucky interns.” Says Spiers: “This is a great opportunity to utilize Flavorpill’s in-house expertise and long-standing relationships with artists and venues to provide an even wider audience with cultural news and commentary.”
