The Fab Five of the Week: Traveling Trolleys and Fall TV

It’s been busy for Mugsy PR these last few weeks and it’s about to get a lot busier and we’re excited about it! So before I continue my day, I want to take a break and share my Fab Five for this week!

 

1. First Day of School Fun: With Palm Beach County schools having started this week and Broward County starting next week, families are ready for a new year! Not only do I love back to school (and all the office supply sales), I love reminiscing about all the picture days when I went to school. Check out these 12 things everyone experienced on picture day. Which one do you identify with the most?

2. Whoa…That’s a Lot of RepeatingWe all have our favorite sayings and catch-phrases. One of mine is holy carpaccio (instead of saying holy crap when I’m in the presence of little ones). I wonder if I say it too much though? Check out this video of clips from Owen Wilson movies and how he repeats a few of the same things over and over in every film!

3. Toasts, Tastes & Trolleys in Boca Raton: This year marks the 4th Annual Toasts, Tastes & Trolleys event hosted by and benefitting the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum.

4. Getting Ready for Fall TVIt’s been a long summer hiatus without some of my favorite shows on. but the time is finally upon us! I myself am very excited for the new Hulu original Hot Wives of Orlando coming back and set in Vegas for Season 2. Take a look at these 5 new fall shows to get excited for as well.

Changes for Google…Mainly Google+

Changes for Google…Mainly Google+

It’s official…You’ll no longer need a Google+ account to use YouTube or any other Google sites.

 

What does it mean? You no longer have to have one identity across Google to use all of it’s services (i.e. YouTube, etc.). Unfortunately for Google, it means one of their ultimate goals has failed.

 

If you’re asking for my “personal” opinion…I like being logged into my Google (GMail) account and having access to my Chrome bookmarks bar from whatever computer, YouTube and GChat all in one. From a “business” perspective, I definitely thinks this makes sense.

 

Since Mugsy PR specializes in publicity and social media campaigns, this was an interesting announcement. Google+ has tried to compete with Facebook and Twitter for years now. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.

 

This is big news for social media experts and now will call for changes and updates to all of our social media campaigns.

 

Read more of the Business Insider story.

 

The result: some are happy and some are not.

 

Our question to you: How does this change your social media strategy?

 

 

The Power of Periscope: How Do You Use It?

The Power of Periscope: How Do You Use It?

Periscope has been around since March, yet many social media enthusiasts are just recently playing around with it and testing it – both personally and for their clients.

 

If you’re new to Periscope, it’s a Twitter-based video streaming platform. You can watch everything from your friend’s live-streaming roadtrip from Miami up to New York or even live streaming a conference – like Florida Social Con for instance!

 

Personally, I have just started using it to document my kitchen redesign – that we’re doing ourselves with the help of my experienced father. HOWEVER, I see a ton of possibilities to build brand awareness for Mugsy PR clients using this live video streaming app.

 

The possibilities are endless:

Live Q&A video sessions

How-To videos for your customers

Loyalty building videos offering specials

Behind the scenes videos showcasing  specific product/talent features

 

Periscope

 

The important thing to remember is that this is a social media platform. Be social. Utilize your best practices when it comes to your other social media platforms. Get creative. Pay attention and acknowledge your followers.

Have you tried Periscope? What do you like best about it?

It’s Here…#PrimeDay is Here!

It’s official…it’s been talked about for awhile and today is the day. Amazon Prime day (#PrimeDay) has arrived to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Some major retailers are trying to compete (like Wal-Mart) and may be succeeding more than Amazon.com.

My question to you: have you treated this like Black Friday or Cyber Monday? Some are happy and some…well…not so much. Take a look at what we’ve found online.

Have you taken a look at the deals and tried to buy anything? Tell us about your experience!
