New California Media has teamed up with a cutting-edge technology firm, DW Alliance, to create the Web’s first truly unified network of Ethnic American media. When you join the NCM Online Media Exchange, you can access other members’ selected stories and publish them on your site, with only a few clicks. With the same ease, make your best stories available to other members, amplifying your publication’s audience and reputation.

Who Is It For?

The NCM Online Media Exchange has been designed for all NCM members. It is especially useful for small to medium-sized members who want to have better web sites, but don’t have the budget or the technological know-how. If you don’t have a web site or you want to do more with your web site, the NCM Online Media Exchange can get you online quickly and easily, and at a low cost.

Six Tools, One Web

The NCM Online Media Exchange is a toolbox of six modules. You choose and pay only for the ones you want. Each of these modules is independent of the others, but they integrate with each other and with your Web site. All of these tools are completely Internet-based, so you can use them on any computer with a Web browser.

The modules can be rapidly added to any site, no matter where the site is presently hosted. Because they are Internet-based, you don’t need any special software or hardware. NCM’s technology partner, DW Alliance, maintains redundant co-location facilities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  This provides you with the utmost in security, performance and stability.
