Mark Hughes Topics
Most marketing, advertising, and PR follows a "push" strategy. No one enjoys marketing that pushes you (pure advocacy). Buzz marketing, however, is completely different. Capturing attention of consumers and the media to the point where talking about your brand becomes entertaining, fascinating, and newsworthy. Everything we do is geared towards getting people talking about your brand, and getting the media writing about your brand. The key to buzz boils down to a seven letter word: stories. Giving people a great story to tell, which makes them interesting, entertaining, newsworthy.
