Staying True to Your Brand

All publicity is not good publicity.

You need to know when to comment, when to stay quiet and the difference between the two.

Whether on TV, on radio, or on print, it is essential that your message is well crafted. Discover the differences between each medium and what you need to know to get as much face time as possible (without sounding or looking incompetent!)

Wielding the Power of the Web

There are now literally thousands of digital ways know to get your message out. Of course, if there is no one to see it, you are talking to an audience of one. Harnessing the power of the web means using search, sites, blogs, video, email, and viral techniques to ensure that your message is heard…and all can be accomplished without becoming a technological genius!

Using Video as Your Message

“Ask a Ninja” just received a book deal; “Lonely Girl 15” has an agent, a SAG card and commercials airing for the United Nations. Both started as posted videos on You Tube. Go beyond silly sock puppets, Diet Coke and Mentos, and frat antics to find out to use video for a business purpose.
