MyStudio, Pioneer of Interactive HD Recording Studios Partners With Search Engine Optimization Company Medium Blue to Establish Social Networking and Internet Marketing Initiatives

MyStudio's "X Factor" Partnership and National Launch Leads to Collaboration With Award-Winning Search Engine Optimization Company

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 24, 2011) - Studio One Media, Inc. (OTCBB: SOMD) announced today that it has partnered with Medium Blue, an award-winning Internet marketing company, to spearhead an aggressive Internet-based initiative for website search engine optimization (SEO), social networking platform development and internet marketing for its MyStudio® HD Recording Studios and AfterMaster HD Audio technologies. Based in Atlanta, Ga., Medium Blue is one of the world's top SEO and Internet marketing firms, with plans to provide MyStudio with a comprehensive host of internet marketing programs.

The initiative follows MyStudio's recent national introduction of its interactive HD recording studios in conjunction with its multi-year partnership with Simon Cowell's "The X Factor." MyStudio personal recording studios allow a consumer to create a high-definition quality video with professional sound for music, auditions, modeling, comedy, dating, greetings and business in the convenience of their local mall.

"The success of our partnership with 'The X Factor,' and our ongoing national expansion now requires a comprehensive SEO, social networking and Internet marketing initiative," said Larry Ryckman, CEO of MyStudio, Inc. "These highly-specific internet marketing programs will provide important viral exposure for MyStudio, which will assist marketing revenues and garner further exposure for our members' videos. Medium Blue is a recognized leader in the SEO industry and we are excited to have the opportunity to work with an established Internet marketing company."

The search engine optimization company will emphasize MyStudio's "bricks-and-clicks" distinctive business model, unique among video-sharing and social networking companies. MyStudio customers pay for the creation of their user generated video content and utilize the MyStudio.net website for the activation and management of their videos. This combination provides a powerful revenue model and a ready-platform from which to establish a strong social networking base. MyStudio recording studios also serve as traffic-drivers for the MyStudio.net website, offering potentially exponential growth in membership and visitors based on the number of MyStudios operating in the marketplace.

"We are very excited about the opportunity to work with MyStudio," said Scott Buresh, CEO of Medium Blue. "MyStudio has realized a way to be paid to produce user generated content (UGC) as well as take advantage of the internet to distribute it to the world. The quality of the UGC that comes out of a MyStudio recording studio is truly remarkable. Their innovative service and unique business model are tailor-made for a high-impact SEO and Social Media campaign and we look forward to helping the company receive the online recognition that they deserve."
