Debbie loves being Camden’s voice on Twitter – I opened up an account for her on Twitter this week. You can find her under the alias, “TalkBarketing.” She waxes eloquent on a daily basis on the trials, tribulations and rewards of her position at Talk, Inc. as chief motivational officer. For those who don’t know, Camden is my dog and she is Talk’s official mascot, chief cheerleader, and provider of unconditional love to all who seek it. Follow Camden at Twitter. She’s got a lot to say.
Holly loves celebrity twittering – As the king (or queen) of blogging, I knew Perez Hilton would be on Twitter. Once I began to follow him, I realized that his @ replies and comments were often directed to many of my favorite celebrities. Thanks to Hilton, I am now a follower of Taylor Swift, Ashton Kutcher, Lily Allen and many more. I am able to read first-hand about Solange Knowles’ night at the Grammy’s with sister Beyonce or Shaq’s big win at the game last night. It might sound silly, but I think Twitter has a way of bringing people together, and I can only hope Taylor Swift will @ reply to my request for concert tickets.
Kelly loves designer Sherwood Forlee’s anti-theft lunch bags – For those who are tired of co-workers helping themselves to your lunch or who want to give that bully at their child’s lunch table a run for his money, anti-theft lunch bags are the perfect solution. The bags are regular sandwich bags with green splotches on both sides to resemble mold. Once you put your sandwich inside, no one will want to touch it. Genius!
Kirsty loves the Oscars – Here is the ultimate example of how an awards program can be an excellent marketing vehicle. The day of, people are glued to their TVs to see what Wolfgang Puck will be making for the Governor’s Ball, the day after women will be trying to find replications of their favorite red carpet gowns and weeks after movies will see a spike in revenue from ticket sales. This year it will be interesting to see if the glitz and glam is toned down a bit due to the economic climate, but I sure hope not.
Shawn loves international brands – It’s always fun to see what common brands, logos and packaging look like in different parts of the world. Here are a few examples of Western logos and packaging with an Arabic twist.
Susan loves Pandora radio – This free web-based radio is dedicated to helping people “listen to and discover new music.” The site allows users to create their own stations based on music they want to hear. Pandora lets users share their stations and crate online relationships based on musical preferences. It’s social media for the music lover. The only drawback- you cannot play songs on command.
