Authenticity is an ever-increasing element of modern marketing. Advertisers are using community content and social causes to draw attention, such as the recent anti-bullying ads from Burger King, but is it authentic concern or a disguised sales pitch? Did the ad connect with the right audience as intended? Is it authentic to the BK brand? Why or why not?

So what can BK do to prove the authenticity of a campaign like this? By sharing background, decision making process, planning and collaborators. The Golding Group partners discuss how to stay authentic to your brand by being open, transparent and honest about the good and bad. Show the “warts and all” as the saying goes. Don’t forget, you can’t fake the funk. The public sees through deception and dirty tricks.

Bonus: Pritch is apparently afraid of the Burger King and finds the TV character to be a bully of sorts.

Recorded at the OU Innovation Hub, a great space for creative professionals and entrepreneurs. http://www.ou.edu/innovationhub.html

Five Keys To Starting Any Business

Episode 134 was inspired by a recent conversation we had with a new business owner who was overwhelmed by too much information. He had taken a multi-week class on starting a business, read blogs, listened to podcasts and purchased a franchise that came with a huge marketing manual.

Profile In PR Failure (A Series of Teachable Moments)

Profile In PR Failure (A Series of Teachable Moments)

On Ep133 of The Golding Group #NeoMarketing Podcast, Pritch Pritchard, APR & Fellow PRSA will react to the PR disaster of the Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel who made a minor crisis much worse by responding in all the wrong ways. Pritch will utilize Jim Lukaszewski’s “Profiles in Failure” list of things NOT to do during crisis management. Nessel somehow managed to do everything on this list of actions to avoid. Not just a teachable moment, but a whole series of “what not to do” examples.
