What does it mean to have a Media Frenzy? Sarah shared a story about her work on the launch of Vlingo featuring an early influencer and media program. The combination of this ‘frenzy’ got the attention of the Wall Street Journal and the rest is history!
What if your brand hasn’t thought about VR/AR at all? Sarah has some advice here, too. “First of all, where are your people spending their time?” How can you augment this experience with VR/AR?
Message first. Always. A self proclaimed “lover of the written word,” Sarah also reminded listeners that no new form of media matters without the right message.
What brand has made Sarah smile recently? Sarah gave us two. First, she shared her personal story of what Toomy bags mean to her and why. She also reflected on Pepsi thanking Coke for their “southern hospitality” as Pepsi sponsored this year’s Super Bowl in Coke’s hometown of Atlanta. Why don’t more brands thank each other?
