The imperative to ?know your audience? is often cited as the first rule of content marketing, and with good reason. A sound understanding of your audience can inform every aspect of your content strategy, from development to distribution. But what does it really mean to ?know your audience?? More importantly, what are specific ways to get to know your audience in order to maximize the results of your content marketing efforts? The answers lie in asking these six familiar questions from the journalist?s toolbox. 1. Who Getting to know your audience requires asking the obvious: who are they? Identify target audiences by conducting basic types of market research including competitor analysis, focus groups, industry surveys and opinion polls. In addition, web and social media analytics can offer insight into who?s searching for your brand and visiting your company?s platforms.

New York is the media and communications capital of the United States, if not the world. As a result, it?s also the American public relations capital, with a greater number of PR agencies than any other U.S. city. New York PR agencies are approached more by foreign companies than PR firms anywhere else, too. PR is a cultural discipline. As a result of differences in business culture, overseas companies have a lot of misperceptions about PR in the United States. This is a big disadvantage, since the less a company knows about PR, the harder it is to get good results and the lower the return on PR investment. To level the playing field and help companies new to the U.S. market, I offer the following tips about American PR and what it?s like to work with a New York PR agency. PR doesn?t mean the same in the United States as it does in many other countries. In the U.S., company CEOs rely on PR professionals (both internally and at agencies) for input on anything that could affect their...

The previously little known but now infamous term "upskirting" has gotten a lot of attention over the last few days. That's because of a Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruling which said that upskirting – taking pictures up a woman's skirt – was not in fact illegal under the state's voyeurism law. The ruling outraged the public and quickly caught the eye of the Legislature, which made the practice illegal in what must have been a record-breaking two-day timeframe. And what is the reaction from political pundits on Beacon Hill? Boston magazine's David S. Bernstein Tweeted "Why can't all legislation move this fast?" Columnist Howie Carr asked why the Legislature can't pass EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) reform this quickly. The answer to Carr's question is simple: That's not how democracy works. The upskirting bill, while arguably a sound public policy, was able to move so quickly due to a little used rule in the House of Representatives that allows the House Committee on Ways...

When we first read that artist Nickolay Lamm was raising $95,000 on CrowdtiltOpen to create a Barbie-like doll with the proportions of an average, living, breathing young woman (with no need to carry her vital organs in a handbag), we very literally cheered. Let Barbie have her gargantuan breasts, spiky stilettos and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue spread — this new doll can still wear pretty clothes and chase exciting careers, but she can also keep all her vital organs where they belong. Finally, a doll a mother can give her little girl without the twinge of I-might-be-fostering-low-self-esteem-and-unrealistic-ideals guilt. We read excitedly, thinking: “What’s her name?” “How are they promoting her?” “Tell us everything!” Her name is Lammily, and her catchphrase is “Average is Beautiful.” Wait, what? continued… New Career Opportunities Daily: The best jobs in media.

Boston-based software developer Spritz shook up the technology and book worlds when it announced it has developed technology to help people read at a whopping 500 words per minute. That means the average reader would be able to finish a novel in about 90 minutes. At Solomon McCown, we love digital innovation. Twitter? We're there. Instagram? Love it. Snapchat? Not for our clients, but when McDonalds and Taco Bell are on a platform, you know everyone will be there someday. But speed-reading? This is a bit too much for us. We love when digital technology enables us to communicate in a new and exciting way. But sometimes, the written word and nearly unlimited character counts are necessary to explain the nuance of an issue. And when reading for pleasure, it's nice to take a break from our 6-second, 140-character world and kick back with a pulp and ink novel that won't distract you with a series of alerts or a call from your mother. What do you think of this speed-reading technology? Is...
