New York, NY, August 6, 2015 — /EPR ADVERTISING NEWS/ — Code18 Interactive, a boutique digital agency based in New York City, is please to announce the launch of a new website for Bigelow Trading, http://www.bigelowtrading.com. This custom, fully responsive WordPress website provides a detailed online showcase for the various brands and products distributed in the USA by Bigelow Trading. As the import and distribution arm of New York’s landmark apothecary C.O. Bigelow, the oldest in America, Bigelow Trading represents the world’s finest heritage brands in beauty, grooming and personal care.

“We designed the Bigelow Trading site to make it easy for our client to build and manage multiple individual brand showcases,” says Code18 Interactive’s Creative Director Steve Pilon. “These showcases are unified by a consistent look and feel anchored in C.O. Bigelow’s iconic branding, yet still remain flexible enough to accommodate the unique needs and personality of each distributed brand.”

At launch, the site features individual showcases for Proraso and Marvis Toothpaste, two well known consumer brands from Italy, as well as the original Bloc Hyalin alum stone from France, and Gülsha rosewater from Turkey. “These are all rich, vibrant brands with many decades of history behind them,” says Pilon. “The Bigelow Trading site really brings each brand story to life.

Recent clients include C.O. Bigelow, GoGo squeeZ, Public Radio International, Graywolf Press, Unisom, TKTS, Five Points Journal, Algonquin Books, and many others.

EconomyPR.com Launches Press Release Writing Service for Entrepreneurs

Streamlined and Affordable; Do-It-Yourself PR for Amazon Sellers, Startups and Crowd-Funders

Cleveland, Ohio, June 26, 2015 — /EPR ADVERTISING NEWS/ — EconomyPR.com today announced the launch of its affordable, streamlined “do-it-yourself” public relations services for entrepreneurs, Amazon Sellers and crowd-funders today. Bridging the gap between random “gig economy” freelancers and premium agencies, EconomyPR.com has demonstrated in beta that it can deliver professionally-written press releases, blogs and media pitches at a fraction of the fees charged by agencies and publicists. The company’s do-it-yourself model enables clients who might not have even considered PR to conduct effective media campaigns.

“It’s time for the PR business to catch up with changes in the news industry as well as shifts in the way that creative work gets done,” said Hugh Taylor, the CEO and founder of EconomyPR.com. “Talented freelancers are available to work economically by the project. Entrepreneurial clients are taking media relations into their own hands. Journalists and bloggers are reachable directly and publishing online. The old barriers between a PR client and the media are disappearing. We’re leading the way in disrupting a field that’s ripe for change.”

Taylor, who has managed public relations in the Fortune 500 as well as for several venture-backed startups, founded EconomyPR.com after observing a disconnect in the modern public relations market. While many traditional PR firms require monthly retainers that can reach tens of thousands of dollars, the actual writing of a press release — which is all that some clients want — could be performed by freelancers for well under one hundred dollars. The proliferation of gig economy freelance sites such as Fiverr and PeoplePerHour has given public relations customers access to thousands of low-cost writing resources. However, quality and delivery can be unpredictable on these sites.

The challenge was to create an end product that met the client’s expectations while preserving the value of the gig economy. EconomyPR.com performs an essential editorial function, marshaling the resources of a skilled, curated freelancer base to enable low-cost press release writing for clients while enforcing professional standards for quality and message impact. The company also helps clients repurpose their press releases, adapting them into articles, blog posts and media pitch emails. In pre-launch beta, EconomyPR.com has helped dozens of entrepreneurs get their news picked up in the media.

EconomyPR.com’s basic offering is a 300 to 400 word press release for $25. Standard delivery is three business days. Extra charges apply for rush services and add-ons, such as blog post adaption and email pitches.

Chad Lieberman From 6W Teaches SEO: PPC vs. Organic Marketing

New York City, NY, February 26, 2015 — /EPR ADVERTISING NEWS/ — Chad Ian Lieberman, the lead Search Engine Optimization (SEO) specialist at 6WSEO, today announced the release of yet another of the company’s awesome SEO trainings on Pay per Click (PPC) marketing versus organic marketing.

The training aims at giving businesses insights on why they should opt for search engine optimization for their business websites, as opposed to going for PPC marketing upfront.

“Unlike PPC, SEO offers a long term traffic solution to a business. With PPC, your traffic stops coming in as soon as your pockets run dry. Of course, if you have very deep pockets, you can go with PPC solely. But it is advisable to take advantage of organic traffic from the search engines because it is easily achievable, keeps flowing for the long term, and is very affordable”, said Chad.

Although the SEO process takes time for the results to be visible, Chad advises that it is the best option if what a business seeks are long-term solutions to its web traffic and visibility problems. Organic traffic is timeless and once it starts coming in, it does not stop. The only time it may stop is if the foundation of your SEO campaigns was not on the right pillars, or if you used black hat techniques to achieve your rankings. These reasons may get your site dropped in the rankings or banned altogether when the search engines update their algorithms.

“For new businesses websites, one may opt to go for both SEO and PPC simultaneously. The PPC brings in instant traffic to the website so that you can kick start the business’ web traffic as you wait for the SEO efforts to yield results. However, as soon as your organic traffic kicks in, you should switch off the PPC campaigns. In any case, the organic traffic, if targeted right, should bring in buyers who help you recover/compensate the PPC costs used”, adds Chad.

We Are Social Appointed by Hunter For Global Project

Global social media agency We Are Social, has been appointed by the UK’s leading wellington brand, Hunter Boots, to deliver a global Facebook campaign this January.

The campaign will raise awareness of Hunter Boots during the time of year where many countries, including the UK, experience some of their most extreme weather conditions. It will also drive engagement levels among Hunter Boots’ Facebook community.

We Are Social is working with Hunter Boots’ UK and US offices to deliver the campaign, called “Together Through Any Weather” which launches on January 7th. It revolves around a Facebook app, through which Hunter Boots will offer its fans a prize every weekday through January based on the forecast for that day, such as wellington boots when it rains, or Fleece Welly Socks if it snows.

Fans will be asked to create and capture a picture based on the daily weather theme, and upload it to the app. Each day, Hunter Boots will select its favourite image, with the creator of that picture awarded with the featured prize.

While the weather featured in the app will be based on the London forecast and using weather data from the Met Office, fans globally will be able to enter the competition. Hunter Boots will be encouraging all its community globally to use their imaginations to create a winning image, regardless of their local weather conditions. Hunter Boots will also change its Facebook cover photo daily to reflect the weather in London.

Michelle Noschese, Marketing Manager at Hunter Boots said: “January is a key time of year for us, with people looking ahead to the rainy months to come, as well as coping with the current weather conditions. One of the few good things about a rainy day is that people get to wear their Hunter boots and We Are Social has used this insight to deliver a campaign which will allow our fans to have a bit of fun with the weather.

“While Hunter Boots is a British heritage brand, which is why we’ve focused on London weather, we’re hoping that our fans across the world embrace this campaign and get creative with their entries.”

James Lubbock, account director at We Are Social said:
“Hunter Boots is a well-loved brand, with a reputation for its top quality products, and the app is based on the idea that wearing Hunter boots is the best way to help you cope with all weather conditions. We’re looking forward to engaging with Hunter Boots’ community throughout January and hopefully seeing some really imaginative and creative photos from all around the world.”

Student Launches the Most Wanted Website with a $1,333,000 Raising Idea

A 21-year-old Latvian student launched an extraordinary website and is hoping to achieve financial freedom and stability by selling decoration blocks on his ‘The Most Wanted Website’ in a form of ad spaces. He hopes to become a millionaire in the process and make a documentary series about how his life changed and what he spent his money on.

Matiss Bartulis (Matthew in English) set up themostwantedwebsite.com in order to achieve his goal of $1,333,000 and 40 cents after he made a list for a normal life where he calculated all the expenses for the next 79 years till his 100th birthday and decided to go for it. He has published his list on the website.

He accented that his life expenses are calculated for a truly normal average life without exaggerations and excessive luxury. “For instance – money for bills, a haircut every three months, presents to relatives, new shoes every two years or ordering pizza home once a month” he added.

Despite the fact that the website has been online only for two weeks, Matiss has already made $1080, although he admits that one of the first ad spaces was sold to his godfather who owns an international furniture company.

“I knew Matiss would badger me about it, but if it attracts people’s attention, then it’s worth having my advertisement and imprints on there,” Mr. Dainis, 39, commented.

Matiss says that people can use ad spaces they purchase to display their image or logo, headline, advertisement and have a link to their own website. “A minimized version of the image will appear on the decoration block as a design element of my website,” he explains,”this is a chance to design the Internet Monument – a virtual significant place that will never change once finished.”

New Facebook Advertising Tool

While some companies struggle to survive online in today’s cutthroat online business environment, many are doing better than ever. Largely because they have mastered the proven but little-known strategies of making Facebook advertising actually work.

That’s the opinion of Roger Hall, an independent copywriter and producer of the just-released tool for Facebook advertisers, the “Facebook Advertising Text Generator“.

“Online advertisers and their agencies today need solid, reliable information on what works in Facebook online advertising – and what doesn’t,” says Roger Hall, Facebook advertising specialist and author. “As a freelance online copywriter I have hundreds of people contacting me asking questions such as;

– How can I structure Facebook advertising that will get a good response?
– How can I get more cost-effective results from my Facebook ads?

I developed the online Facebook Advertising Text Generator to give these folks some of the answers. What makes this tool different is this; it’s not based upon theories or untested ideas. Each of the methods built-into the tool has been thoroughly tested and proven by leading US e-commerce research companies.

Unlike many of today’s information sources, Hall points out; this tool is available at no charge. “A lot of companies can’t afford to hire consultants. And it takes time to read an entire book, listen to a CD or attend a seminar,” notes Hall. “This free tool, containing 11 proven Facebook advertising tactics, has been created for them and takes less than 2 minutes to get.”

The Facebook Advertising Text Generator tool can be accessed online, free of charge, right now by visiting; http://FacebookAdTactics.com/text-generator

Clickbooth Releases Study on How to Increase Conversions with Mothers Ages 35 to 55

The female consumer hold tremendous spending power – on average, around 75,000 per year – and women ages 35 to 55 make up the largest group of consumers online. Affiliate network Clickbooth tackled identifying the groups within this valuable demographic in part one of its “An Inside Look at Marketing to Women Ages 35 to 55” study, and now part two aims to teach Clickbooth clients how to convert the mothers within this group into customers. Author Sara Anderson pulls from several other studies to complete her own, and the results will prove valuable for those who create affiliate CPA network campaigns.

Anderson surmised the following about the individual mothers within this demographic: “She is strategic in her decisions, compares products, and actually uses her friend’s (or trusted online mommy networkers) opinions as the determining factor in whether she will buy into a product or not.”

She tells Clickbooth clients that when creating affiliate network campaigns, they must treat these consumers with respect and have patience with a sometimes longer sales process. If they do, their campaigns will be successful. She goes on to break down part two of the study into two essential actions for Clickbooth’s affiliate CPA network clients:

Spark a mother’s interest – Use empathetic ad copy that creates an emotional connection and that is family-oriented. Use photos of a mother with her children. Anderson quotes a recent Facebook study that showed that mothers relate best to photos of mothers with their children, next to mothers laughing, and finally, mothers multi-tasking. Landing pages in an affiliate network campaign should be simple in design, and the call to action should be family friendly.

Increase her desire and trust in the product – Quickly show a mother that other mothers approve of the product, through videos, surveys, product reviews and customer testimonials.

Close the sale with an easy shopping cart experience – There should be no confusion when filling out an order form. A clumsy shopping cart experience can destroy the trust that the affiliate CPA network campaign has built.

rVue Online Digital Out-of-Home Media Planner Launched

We’ve all seen it. Advertisers either spending days on DOOH media planning or avoiding the media altogether with the same objections: fragmentation within the industry, lack of reach and the time it takes to create a strategic media plan. From emails and phone tag, to spreadsheets and middlemen, sophisticated ad planners found their time consumed by the most mundane portion of the planning process.

On the other side of the equation, networks were reluctant to allocate inventory to third parties, slash pricing or pay higher commissions, instead wishing to maintain some control over their inventory valuation and commoditization.

Times have changed. DOOH has grown and evolved while advertisers are turning away from traditional media and looking for innovative digital solutions. The rVue, Inc. executive and technology team has been immersed in the Digital Out-of-Home for years, consistently building solutions that drive efficiency and ease of use.

rVue, Inc. announced the launch of its web-based DOOH media planner, which blankets the industry by connecting participating networks with ad agencies and advertisers looking to advertise on digital signage screens and billboards. The open and free-to-use rVue Media Planner enables agencies to easily create a DOOH media plan, saving them precious planning time and expanding their DOOH reach by introducing them to participating networks they may not currently have on their radar.

rVue’s “social networking meets search engine” approach connects advertisers with networks that fit their search criteria. There is no cost or obligation for advertisers, agencies or networks to use the media planner and no inventory allocation or aggregation is required. Networks are, however, encouraged to put their “best foot forward” by maintaining their profile with accurate and current data, such as audience demographics, impressions and third party studies as well as location, content and technology specifications and other relevant information. This becomes the basis by which agencies evaluate networks for their media plan. Networks always maintain the “final say” by being able to accept or reject any offer made to them.

The media planner is just one of the core software offerings within rVue’s suite of technology. Currently, rVue has enrolled more than 35 networks representing over 157,000 touchpoints in major DMAs in the United States and Canada, with several European networks becoming available in early 2010. As part of a strategic relationship, BroadSign Open’s more than 230 digital signage networks in 25 countries are automatically eligible to adopt the system.

New Start Up Gives Smes A Cost Effective Tool To Evaluate Online Expenditure

Smart Digital Spending, a New York start-up launched today, offers a new approach to analyzing online advertising which could save firms thousands of dollars each year. Smart Digital Spending provides written, audio and video instructions on how to analyze online campaigns using data analysis techniques in order to make simple yet effective media optimization decisions. Offering data analysis advertising tutorials is the brainchild of online marketing analyst Eric Melchor.

New Start Up Gives Smes A Cost Effective Tool To Evaluate Online Expenditure

Paula Lynn commented, “I think there is a real need for these tutorials. Marketing data analysis is usually seen as really complex and hard to implement, but these guides explain how advertisers can incorporate online media measurement into their media planning strategy very easily. There may be other options out there, but simplicity doesn’t seem to be what is happening with other companies offering their services”.

According to Eric Melchor, “The natural instinct of an internet marketing analyst with no media planning experience is to track and measure as many metrics as possible in order to learn about the campaign at maximum granularity. This results in a virtually endless amount of wasted time since this won’t change the way advertisers plan future media buys nor generate a better ROI on advertising dollars spent.

Media planners and buyers who are capable of performing proven data analysis techniques on their own are much more likely to focus on what is actionable, identify areas where to minimize costs and implement optimization decisions based off strategic findings that will enhance campaign performance.”

Firms of any kind can purchase and download these tutorials that are designed for paid search, online display and mobile marketing at www.smartdigitalspending.com. Firms can even choose to pay a low monthly subscription that gives them access to all tutorials for free and are able to have Eric Melchor as an available resource to call on for matters relating to measuring digital advertising.

Search engine marketers discuss a variety of methods to raise website awareness and rankings within search engines

Flooding web pages with keywords is not only user-unfriendly; it’s also a waste of time. That was the message Search Engine Marketers William Leake and Kelly Meacham had for attendees of the 2007 South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Panel discussion “Making SEO and Usability Work Together.”

“When it comes to natural search results it’s really just a robot analyzing the HTML of a site, with external and internal links being much more important than the text on the page,” said Leake, CEO and President of Apogee Search. Both Leake and Meacham expressed the need for website content to be tailored to the user and not the search engine. “Keeping users engaged, ultimately keeps them satisfied,” Meacham added. “If a site is full of jargon serving as keyword density, a user’s interest and/or sales are lost.”

The SXSW Interactive Festival features five days of panels, keynote discussions, trade show and exhibition events. The wide variety of programming offered at SXSW Interactive in addition to the presence of SXSW Film and SXSW Music helps make it a completely original event. Together, Leake, and Meacham, have over two decades of SEO, web marketing, and website usability experience; and were happy to share their know-how to a room-overflowing crowd of 200+ people.

Attendance at the “Making SEO and Usability Work Together” power session was standing room only despite rainy weather conditions that dampened overall attendance that day. This impressive turnout reflects the intensity of interest in search engine marketing, as almost 90% of all websites are initially found through search engines. For those that missed the session, the SXSW website (www.sxsw.com) will be adding a podcast of the session in the near future.

As for better search engine optimization Leake stressed the importance of putting keywords within a website’s title tags and letting in-bound links serve as the main bait for the algorithm robots. He explained this strategy by saying, “Google’s search algorithms are constantly changing, and keyword density is only a small portion – typically no more than six percent — of what drives those algorithm. Therefore, the most sure-fire way to keep up with their changing patterns is to always have a wide variety of outside sites linked to your site.” Afterwards Leake closed the session by saying, “A proper site is one designed for humans and not robots. So if you want it to rank high and still be user-friendly, write fluidly and link constantly.”
