The Power of Pinterest: How I Became the Pinterest Queen

I’ve always been a huge fan of social media. I was known for my excessive tweeting in high school, and I’ve always been a very active Instagram, Facebook and Vine user. I’ve tried just about every social media platform – except Pinterest. Although my friends have Pinterest accounts and rave about the platform, it never appealed to me.

The Value of a Content Marketing Internship

1398776_593008990755795_923968122_o As I approach the final weeks of my internship at Fiore Communications, I can’t help but reflect on my experience here these past two years. I began my journey as Content Marketing Intern in 2013 – and as a sophomore in college who was brand new in the marketing major, I was eager to get some experience under my belt and learn all that I could.

When I set out on my quest to find a marketing internship, I was open-minded. I didn’t know what exactly I was looking for in a company and felt that any internship experience would be a great springboard for me. But what I did know was that I wanted to intern somewhere that would help me grow and treat me as an investment. Fetching coffee and filing papers wasn’t on my to-do list, so when I interviewed with Dave and learned about the real responsibilities I’d have here – I was sold.

One Does Not Simply Write a Blog Post about Memes

If you use any social media platform, it is almost impossible not to encounter a meme. Whether it’s “Bad Luck Brian,”“Success Kid,”“Hey Girl” or—my personal favorite—“Condescending Wonka,” these pictures with clever sayings have taken the internet by storm.

With the popularity that memes have gained, you may be wondering if you should incorporate them into your marketing campaign. The answer is: Why not?

Digital Marketing for the Music Maker

Gone are the days when music fans had to go to the store to buy an album and decide if they liked the artist’s music or not. Now, technology leads the way to an artist’s exposure and their engagement with fans or potential fans. Artists also can use technology to build, and eventually maintain, their brand. Here are some ways that digital marketing has impacted an artist’s ability to promote themselves.

If you have you ever watched Nickelodeon on a weekday afternoon, you know that their advertisers understand their audiences very well. Every commercial is an enthusiastically narrated pitch for children’s toys or a somewhat less enthusiastic pitch to buy household cleaning supplies or cookware. Why?
