Disney’s Finding Dory: Content strategies for marketing to fish

first_img 25SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Hilary Reed Hilary Reed, founder of EmpowerFi, is an innovative thought-leader who has been involved in various aspects of strategic sales and marketing for 15 years. Her career began in 2000 when … Web: Details What was I watching? Why did I walk into this room? Where are my keys? While the Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory may be a children’s movie, most of us can relate to the forgetful fish in one way or another.  Often we find ourselves caught up in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives; work, kids, gym, school, eat, sleep, repeat. Our lives have become so filled with hustle and bustle that it has become second nature to tap an app to pull up a show we want to watch, or to ask Siri to find a funny clip that someone told us about, or even find a 30 second video of a recipe at the very moment you’re ready to cook dinner. There is no need to wait for anything anymore, which is why it’s so important to cater your content and media strategy to a saltwater fish.Technology is a great tool for those of us on the go but can be a hindrance when it comes to marketing and developing content. Like I said before, no one wants to sit through a 2-minute ad, regardless of how personalized it may be. No one wants to sit in front of the TV without fast forwarding the commercials, and quite certainly no one wants to read more than a few sentences about your credit union’s fantastic loan rates.I like to blame the invention of the microwave. The moment we realized that instant gratification was possible, our attention spans began to shrink. I don’t know about you, but I often pop open the microwave door with 1 second left because I just can’t stand to wait. Think about how this has affected media and mass communication. Facebook now auto plays videos because most people don’t even take the time to click the play button. A little lazy, a little ridiculous, but the truth. I personally don’t watch a video for more than 8-10 seconds unless it involves Leonardo DiCaprio or something that I know is going to end in an epic fail. Our minds are running a mile a minute and our attention spans are just like that little forgetful fish, Dory. Technology and social platforms have made it easy to engage with consumers at any given moment in the lifecycle, but now comes the hard part, customizing your content. Customizing content to the younger Millennial generation is an entirely different ball game. Their attention spans are so short at times that they have chosen to migrate from Facebook to things like Snapchat, Vine, and Instagram to fulfill their need for instantaneous content. But don’t blink, because before you know it, those platforms too will be replaced by something even more instantly gratifying.Digital media can be a great tool for promoting your brand and engaging with prospects, but your content strategy can make or break your success. Recent studies have shown that attention spans have shrunk from an average of 12 seconds in the year 2000 to 8.5 seconds in 2016. That is even less than our fish friend Dory, whose attention span is around 9 seconds. These are pretty shocking statistics, but vital information when putting together your media strategy. Take a look at your Google Analytics, most likely your Average Session Duration is less than 1 minute, and bounce rates are increasing. To combat this lack of engagement, it has become imperative to focus on UX (User Experience) when it comes to your own website.When it comes to digital media content however, relating to a niche market, using story telling, sharing trends, and leveraging comedy (throw in a meme or 6), are some of the top ways for you to engage with your easily distractible audience. And of course, the age-old mantra, K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) absolutely applies today. Digital videos and commercials should always be shorter than 30 seconds, 15 seconds is more ideal. If it needs to be longer, make the first 8-20 seconds attention-grabbing; funny, emotional, or exciting. We have become a more distracted society with the amount of stimulation that is thrown at us through our growth in technology, so the more concise you keep your messages, the more opportunities you’ll have to showcase your brand and build trust with your audience. So in conclusion, whom do you think Negan killed in The Walking Dead season finale? My bet is on Glenn. Oh wait, I was writing about Finding Dory, that’s right. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.last_img read more

Community supports Sidney PD with new shed

first_imgThanks to the community, the Sidney Police Department now have their very own shed to store all the training accessories they have. The motorcycle group made up of veterans and law enforcement officers donated more than $1,000 to the project. The maker of the shed was also local, offering a discount on the shed to show support. “Our whole goal is to support the community, support law enforcement, to support veterans, and this was right up our alley,” said Fred Deutcsh, president of the motorcycle club. “It was an honor to help them, I would do it again,” said Insinga. “It was a great way to get our community together, and really back our blue, that’s important.” “We had to lug this equipment back and forth every time we wanted to use the range,” said Sidney Police Chief Eric Oliver. “It really showed us that the community we work for is worth the time we put into it,” said Oliver. When Delaware Valley Humane Society Shelter Director Erin Insinga learned of the department’s problem, she says she wanted to help immediately. SIDNEY (WBNG) — The Sidney community is rallying behind their police department with a token of appreciation. The Sidney Police Department’s firing range sits a little more than one mile away from the station. “We’ve had a long standing relationship with Sidney PD, professionally and personally. I consider them to all be friends of mine,” said Insinga. To fund raise, she turned to the community for help, selling t-shirts at $20 each. Then, more members of the community began to step up, like the Nam Knights Southern Tier Chapter. last_img read more

Borough of Carlisle Urges the Legislature to Support Gov. Wolf’s Aggressive Infrastructure Plan, Restore Pennsylvania

first_imgBorough of Carlisle Urges the Legislature to Support Gov. Wolf’s Aggressive Infrastructure Plan, Restore Pennsylvania Press Release,  Restore Pennsylvania Harrisburg, PA – The Borough of Carlisle is the latest Pennsylvania municipality to pass a resolution formally calling for the state legislature to support Restore Pennsylvania, Governor Wolf’s aggressive infrastructure investment plan.“My colleagues and I understand the impediments that municipalities, like Carlisle, often face to provide needed services, which address quality of life issues effectively and efficiently with limited available revenue sources,” said Carlisle Mayor Tim Scott. “The Restore Pennsylvania initiative and its sensible funding mechanism are means to meet the ever-growing needs of Pennsylvania communities, large and small alike.”Restore Pennsylvania will inject $4.5 billion over the next four years in significant, high-impact projects selected by local officials who are best situated to determine need. In the Borough of Carlisle, potential projects include flood prevention and recovery, blight remediation, brownfield redevelopment, green space creation, and broadband access expansion.“As with many of Pennsylvania’s historic communities, Carlisle is coping with changes in industry and population shifts. Restore Pennsylvania could provide the support the borough is looking for to modify infrastructure to meet today’s needs,” said Gov. Wolf. “It’s time for us to reinvest in our communities to make them competitive in the modern economy.”Borough officials made note of the support Restore Pennsylvania could provide to the Carlisle Urban Redevelopment Plan, a comprehensive strategy to redevelop industrial sites and reactivate neighborhoods. Restore Pennsylvania could provide assistance to areas outlined in the plan, including developing green infrastructure like public parks and bicycle routes, minimizing stream runoff to prevent flooding, and removing contaminants at brownfield sites.Restore Pennsylvania is a statewide plan to aggressively address the commonwealth’s vital infrastructure needs. Funded through a commonsense severance tax that the Independent Fiscal Office has determined will be primarily paid for by out-of-state residents, Restore Pennsylvania is the only plan that will help make Pennsylvania a leader in the 21st century.View the full Restore Pennsylvania plan.

Man United get Marcus Rashford injury boost

first_imgMarcus Rashford could return in time to play a part in Manchester United’s run-in after scans revealed his back injury isn’t as bad as first feared.Advertisement There were concerns that Rashford’s season could be over after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave a bleak injury prognosis ahead of the first leg of the Europa League last-32 tie against Club Brugge last week.

He’s desperate to come back, of course, but it’ll be another couple of months before we see him, probably,” the United boss said.“We can’t rush it. But when he is fit he will be stronger for it so when he comes back it’s going to be a big boost for us.”Rashford hasn’t featured for United since January 15 but he has remained close to the first team squad and was at Old Trafford for the 5-0 win against Club Brugge that secured a last-16 place in the Europa League.last_img read more

Swans accept Shelvey FA charge

first_img Shelvey elbowed Liverpool defender Emre Can during Swansea’s 4-1 defeat on Monday night but escaped any action from referee Andre Marriner. The 22-year-old’s suspension begins with immediate effect and he will serve a four-game ban, an extra game added to the customary three for violent conduct as he was sent off at Everton earlier in the season. “But that is absolutely not the case. It was not my intention to give the impression I do not want Jonjo here. “When I talked about him I was talking about the specific instances where he can do better, in relation to the yellow cards he has picked up. “He is going to get a lot better and I want that to happen here at Swansea, not anywhere else.” “The Football Association said the incident with Liverpool’s Emre Can, which happened in front of the referee, ‘was not seen by the match officials but caught on video’,” the club said on its official website. “While the club supports Shelvey’s statement that the incident was unintentional, it does not believe the outcome of an appeal would prove positive for the club or player.” Shelvey is banned for Swansea’s Barclays Premier League visit to QPR on New Year’s Day and Saturday’s FA Cup third-round tie at Tranmere, as well as league home games against West Ham and Chelsea on January 10 and 17. The once-capped England midfielder has been shown seven yellow cards and one red card this season and Swansea manager Garry Monk said before the Liverpool game he needed to “wise up” because “laziness” was costing him needless bookings. “I have spoken to him a number of times,” Monk said after Shelvey was booked in the Boxing Day victory over Aston Villa. “We can’t afford silly bookings and Jonjo has to wise up because that yellow card came from laziness and he has to be better than that.” But Monk said he had no intention to sell Shelvey – who joined Swansea from Liverpool for £5million in the summer of 2013 – in the January transfer window. “It is often the case (to sell) when a manager talks about a player,” said Monk. Press Association Swansea have ‘reluctantly accepted’ Jonjo Shelvey’s violent conduct charge from the Football Association, the Barclays Premier League club have announced.last_img read more

Barry says virtual training sessions a good way to assess fitness

first_img… Jaguars physio lauds attendance, feedback from cricketersBy Clifton RossGUYANA Jaguars physiotherapist Neil Barry Jr said his virtual training sessions with the national team have been coming along nicely, despite the physical limitations due to lockdown.Barry, who heads up the Jags’ strength and conditioning sessions, told Chronicle Sport yesterday that he has been enjoying the time spent virtually with his players, as it has been helping to somewhat keep track of what players have been doing during their downtime.“We’ve been online since the premature end to the 1st class season and restrictions started to be implemented. Virtual sessions have been good to help maintain some aspects of the player’s fitness, taking into consideration access to different training too,” he stated.Speaking on the pros and cons for this virtual method of the training, Barry said that the online forum keeps players in a good mental place while maintaining the social distancing guidelines.“One of the cons is that everyone will not have the same training space or equipment available, so it allows us to innovate while still trying to maintain professional standards. Another good reason is that it allows the players to still foster a bit of team spirit even though we’re all practising physical distancing”. Barry outlined.The Jaguars stars have been enjoying their time off while having to use their living spaces for makeshift training. The physio also gave insight regarding the logistics behind the sessions.“So far the sessions have been well attended and we’ve been getting good feedback. We’ve been working on injury prevention, muscle strength and cardiovascular conditioning among other aspects of training.The feedback from the players has been great and some have talked about feeling leaner and stronger,” said the team physio.With the uncertainty looming over the entire world with regard to the pandemic and its aftermath, Barry said he has been working on ways to ensure – should virtual sessions become essential – he’s fully prepared for the long haul.“Everyone is assessing the situation and taking it in stride. As the world develops more mitigating factors, chances are some restrictions will be lifted so online sessions are likely to reduce over time. Ultimately the players need the opportunity to practise their skills, so they need to be able to return to training facilities as soon as it is safe.”Barry said looking ahead to the future, to a post-COVID-19 world, working and rehabbing players will have to undertake a new chapter.“Even the physiotherapy world has resorted to something called tele-rehab so for now all interactions are done remotely. Rehabilitation is a very hands-on field so as soon as it is safe we would want to return to that type of practice.” he concluded.Guyana Jaguars team physio Neil Barry Jr has been conducting virtual sessions with team members.last_img read more
