    Every now and then, you might find yourself wondering how you ended up someplace. Sure, with GPS and Google Maps it's harder to get lost than it used to be, but it still happens. It can happen, too, in the world of marketing. There are tools, data and channels to help move a message from point A to point B, but sometimes you might still lose your way.

  • Paid Media And Public Relations: E're the Twain Shall Meet in Marketing Daily on 08/18/2017

    As long as it's earned media, everyone seems comfortable. As soon as there's a dollar sign attached, things become less clear. But does that make sense? No, not really.

  • Sometimes, It's Tough To Be A Teen in Engage:Teens on 05/25/2017

    Is there anythings as irritating people who say, "everything will work out for the best" or "if you work hard enough, you're sure to succeed."? Both statements are false. For teens, it can be so hard to realize things aren't going to work out as planned; but that's life, things rarely go as smoothly as we'd like no matter how hard you try.

  • Oh, My Faking Head! in Engage:Teens on 04/27/2017

    Most thinking people agree that false information and hate speech are bad things that should be avoided and discouraged.

    Like everyone in today's topsy-turvy world, young people are struggling to separate fact from fiction. Fake news has become a catchall phrase that encompasses a wide range of communication and content - everything from items intended to mislead to satire to honest mistakes to things people simply disagree with. It's a big problem, especially for teens who are in the process of forming their maps of the media world. In this environment, the worst things brands and marketers can do is to further confuse the situation by producing and promoting false content themselves.

  • The Gender Genie Isn't Going Back In The Bottle in Engage:Teens on 02/23/2017

    To continue the historic march of progress, President Trump yesterday rolled back President Obama's guidelines regarding transgender students' rights to use the school restrooms corresponding to their gender identity. However one may feel about this particular development, the gender genie is not going back into the bottle and a growing number of brands and media companies seem to have gotten the memo.

  • How *NOT* To Engage Teens in Engage:Teens on 01/26/2017

    Last month I shared "The Ultimate 2017 Guide to Marketing to Teens." It offered six pointers for making 2017 a wonderful year. The tips were: tell lies, ignore facts, be offensive, make threats, look backwards and ignore experts.
