Celebrity hacker who stole nudes pleads out

The internet is awash in both legitimate and “fake” celebrity nude photos. Some celebs “leak” these pics to grab some relevance or to help promote a new project. Others do it “just because” … but many, many celebs are embarrassed to have their privacy invaded when nudes are posted without their consent. Such is the story for superstar actress Jennifer Lawrence of Hunger Games and X-men fame. When her obviously private and never intended for public consumption pics hit the net, the typically outspoken star was no less verbose. She called the hack and subsequent release of the photos on...

Using Customer Info to Better Market a Travel Brand

It’s all about connection in marketing and building a brand these days. When the brand connects in personalized ways with their customers, the likelihood of repeat business with that buyer group increases by as much as 65% according to a recent Accenture newsroom survey. The trick is how to help your target customer feel that way about your product or service. We live in a Big Data world, where our preferences are logged and stored, but accessing the right information and using it effectively requires research and effort, in part because there is so much information available.

Reanimate Nonprofit Fundraising with PR

In 2017 we’ve been living through a lot of turmoil and public crisis, from the Syrian situation, all the refugees, and fervor over undocumented aliens, to the Presidential election from hell (no matter which side you were on, it was an emotionally bloody seemingly never-ending battle). There’s been rioting and protesting in the streets almost more often than not since the election more than two months ago. Social media battles seem to be more and more heated, and honestly, a good portion of the nation just seems to want a peaceful place to land and recover. We are in a... Read More >

Big Brands Mixing with Reality Television

2017-01-31 by Jason Tannahill

Reality television isn’t just tied to big brands through advertising time, but more in the way Ford Motors was tied to serial television shows in the 70’s. They are part and parcel of the programs. One of the most recent examples was on The New Celebrity Apprentice with Welch’s grape juice. The challenge was to find a way to showcase the healthy benefits that come with drinking Welch’s grape juice. The show also worked with King’s Hawaiian’s dinner rolls. Plenty of cooking shows use branded ingredients in their challenges, which is something to be expected. But over the years they’ve... Read More >
