Background & Vision
Our vision from inception is to provide a new media venue featuring high-quality content related to the science and technology that drives our world. ULTRA TechLife was created by Ben Alonzo, a highly credentialed science and technology expert. Based on continuously increasing traffic metrics, our audience is prime at 15-50 years old. We believe the new site is even more organized and will offer even more exciting unique content. We want to get people to think and explore. We reach an international audience of people that are highly interested in science and technology content because our site can also be translated into nearly any language.
Interviews & Public Speaking Events
Ben Alonzo has a passion for everything science and tech. He would love to speak to your group, business, school, agency, or organization. Due to a busy schedule, interviews and public speaking engagements will be limited. Events can be public or private and involve audiences of any size. Topics may include various science and technology subjects. Requests must include full details of the event, including information about the agency, company, school, or organization they represent as well as contact details. International clients are also welcomed.
Audiences and students both describe Alonzo as enthusiastic, unique, approachable, often pointing out that his talks are entertaining, very informative, and memorable. Public speaking topics and talks have previously included: tech literacy, information and communications technology, public health, synoptic and mesoscale meteorology, severe weather forecasting, earth and space science, computer applications, C++ programming, HTML programming, air pollution, climate change, secular development, freethought, atheism, higher education, environmental science, emergency medical science, first aid, responsible reporting, spotting junk science, defending against trojans, injections, and keylogger attacks, risk reduction, disaster data recovery, emergency communications, disaster preparedness, digital media production, and business management.
Having an expert present a topic to your agency, school, or organization can enhance learning and raise interest in particular subjects. Long-distance travel costs must be paid by the requesting party or sponsor. An honorarium is suggested for academic talks.
If you're requesting an interview or speaking event, please contact us and provide your details.
Advertising & Sponsorship
Ben Alonzo's site, ULTRA TechLife, attracts a wide variety of potential customers from tech enthusiasts, electronics consumers, hobbyists, small business owners, scientists, vacationers, boaters, surfers, budget shoppers, health professionals, international business officials, college students, to those simply looking for interactive entertainment.
Our prime target audience continues to be people age 15-50, primarily from the United States.
Given our continuously growing traffic metrics and global reach of the proprietary search optimization techniques we use, our sponsors and advertisers get unique exposure. Since Alonzo is also a professor, he has a key ability to show off the latest science and tech stuff in the classroom, online, and at public events. We're also featured on radio, television, online, and print outlets, which means further market exposure.
We have advertising space available including graphical, video, and voice over (mention) at very affordable rates. This is an excellent opportunity to gain diverse market exposure.
We're also actively looking for sponsors to provide us with useful software, hardware, computer, network, instruments, video equipment, transportation, and education resources.
If you're interested in advertising or sponsorship, please contact us and provide your details.
Do you have a new exciting product or promotion? We may be interested in reviewing your product and presenting it in our websites, HD channel, in the classroom, during interviews, shows, and public events.
We can present items to consumers and professionals from an expert's perspective, informing them of their options, including performance, features, affordability, quality, technical details, tips, and an overall rating. We also integrate products into our special features, which are often picked up by radio, television, online, and print media.
For the past nine years, ULTRA TechLife's Director, Ben Alonzo, has been deep into consumer electronics, technical writing, and testing new products that companies are about to introduce to the public. Some of the products he's tested include smart televisions, media players, tablet computers, radios, wireless routers, gaming systems, futuristic toys, remote control vehicles, digital cameras, weather radios, scientific instruments, and solar power equipment. Testing involves performance checks, measurements, firmware bug identification and fix recommendations, creating review videos and articles, and writing easier owner's manuals and online guides for users. Ben describes this process as "interesting and unexpected" because these products have a wide range of quality, durability, economic feasibility and usability. His worst case was a dash cam concept unit sent to him that caught fire on first charge. The best case was an unexpected cheap media player that has been dunked in water, run over, dropped hundreds of times, and somehow has still survived to function perfectly fine almost six years later. New consumer electronics products are always coming onto the market and we can't wait to see the next best thing.
