Now that 2015 has come and gone, we’ve narrowed down our favorite social media moments of the year. We’ve included pivotal occurrences in America’s history, as well as hilarious memories that still make us #LOL. Here are our favorites!
Just as every person has a story to tell, so does every business.
How that story is told – and shared -- can make all the difference when it comes to capturing the attention of your audience and making an immediate connection with them.
Whew! It’s going to be a whirlwind week. I’m in beautiful Charleston, SC for the South’s premiere fashion event, Charleston Fashion Week. FletcherPR's long-time client, Jewelry Television (JTV) is here to launch their new brand, ‘Jewelry Love,’ and we’re here to ensure they get mega media coverage. We’re also working with a new client-- Charleston Fashion Week, the event itself-- to help attract more national media attention.
If you’ve kept up with our blog, you may have noticed a new author posting recently. That would be me, Abbigail the Intern. (*Note: I’m thinking of patenting that for my superhero alias. You’ll see why if you continuing reading.) I started interning for FletcherPR at the end of May and have had my fair share of stories to tell.
Throughout this blog, we’ve talked about some pretty crazy things being marketed specifically to women (here and here). Well today is no exception. Nestle has come out with a premium, high-end water bottle called Resource.
Trying to compete with the Fiji waters and Smartwaters of the world, Resource is what Nestle calls its first domestically-sourced, premium brand of still water, meaning it is noncarbonated and pure. Larry Cooper, Resource’s group marketing manager, said the ideal consumer is a trendy woman with a higher income around 35 years old. Sounds like they know what they want!
The ads show the bottle of water in lush woods and claim that it has 100 percent naturally-occurring electrolytes and 50 percent of the bottle is recycled plastic. To promote this new brand, Resource will be featured on the reality show Project Runway and endorsed by the Today Show’s Bobbie Thomas.
So what do you think about another seemingly gimmick product being marketed to women? Will you try it?

While it is starting to see some growth in recent years, the WNBA is still struggling to carve a niche, even after 16 years of doing business.

A recent article in Fortune Magazine outlines this problem and some of the other issues surrounding the marketing of female athletes.

We’ve mentioned Bridget Brennan and her wildly popular book “Why She Buys” here on the Her Voice blog before, in discussions about gender and its effects on consumer behavior as well as how friendships between women play a role in the shopping experience. Brennan recently spoke candidly about her thoughts and expanded on some of the ideas from her book.
There's a new documentary about the representation of women in the media and it's really gotten people talking. The film, MissRepresentation, premiered on Oprah's OWN Network last night and attempts to shed some light on how the mainstream media portrays women and girls. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom (pictured below with Gloria Steinem, Daphne Zuniga and Geena Davis), the film provides an up-close look at how women in positions of power are scrutinized by members of the media in ways that their male counterparts are not.
