What’s The Value In PR ‘Virality’?

If you work in media relations, or more specifically, link building from PR (like I do!) then the thought of a viral PR campaign is ultimately dreamy. Often, if you have a good enough idea, then a media campaign will see what I like to call the 'snowball' effect. That's where you sell your idea… Continue reading What’s The Value In PR ‘Virality’?

What Happens When Your Influencer Outreach Backfires? Em Clarkson STICKS IT To Bootea

It seems like we spend a lot of time talking about the benefits of not only a solid Influencer outreach campaign, but also the 'virality' it can achieve if all goes well. Certain Influencers have the ability to really make something catch like wildfire (much like Fyre fest, until it metaphorically burned out) and this… Continue reading What Happens When Your Influencer Outreach Backfires?

If you haven't been watching or following Game Of Thrones these past few weeks, then where have you been at?

Instagram Are Testing Hiding ‘Likes’ – Here’s Why I Think That’s A Good Thing

I'm an old soul, everybody I'm close to knows it. I'm 21 but I'm not an avid drinker or partier. I'm much more focused on, and interested in, my career than getting drunk all the while which is the stereotype typically inflicted on my generation. I'd self-claim that I'm old beyond my years. If not… Continue reading Instagram Are Testing Hiding ‘Likes’ – Here’s Why I Think That’s A Good Thing

LUSH Bid Goodbye To Social Media (For Better Or For Worse?)

LUSH are revolutionary in their business model, there's no question about that. Shouting loud and proud about not only shunning animal testing on their own products, but also actively fighting against the entire regime globally too. Their brand is renowned for being vibrant, quirky and original which is why I was so surprised to hear… Continue reading LUSH Bid Goodbye To Social Media (For Better Or For Worse?)

Guest Post: What’s It Like Working In Influencer Marketing?

I recently wrote about the latest debacle in influencer marketing which concerned ex-Love Island store Georgia Harrison promoting a product which most would largely argue was unethical. I've dabbled in influencer marketing, but I'm no expert. Nevertheless - I'm intrigued by it. So, to help out with the post I employed Scott Guthrie (who's an… Continue reading Guest Post: What’s It Like Working In Influencer Marketing?

What an EGG teaches us about social media… Again

I recently wrote a post on what an egg can teach us about social media, concentrating mainly on its [social medias] superficiality - proven by the fact that a stock photo image of an egg became the most liked photo on Instagram in a matter of days, dethroning arguagly the worlds most famed 'influencer' -… Continue reading What an EGG teaches us about social media… Again

What an EGG teaches us about social media

"What an egg teaches us about social media" well there's a heading I never thought I'd write. But, in the wake of the recent world record broken for most Instagram likes by a stock photo egg, here I am. The egg in question, perhaps better known as the @world_record_egg, stole the record for 'most liked… Continue reading What an EGG teaches us about social media

Creative campaigns #2 – Netflix’s ‘Birdbox challenge’

Who'd heard of the 'Birdbox challenge' before yesterday, not me - that's for sure. So, if it'd have fit in the box, the title of this one really would have been 'Netflix warns people NOT to do 'Birdbox challenge', raises awareness of it (and the movie) instead'.  But unfortunately, it didn't. So, for now, your… Continue reading Creative campaigns #2 – Netflix’s ‘Birdbox challenge’
