Getting Your Child Into Showbiz!

Brooke Shields was just 11-months-old when she launched her career in an Ivory Soap commercial while Jodie Foster took her first wobbly steps to fame as the adorable bare-bottomed three-year-old in the Coppertone suntan lotion ad campaign. It’s almost a given that many of today’s superstars started honing their craft before they could speak in complete sentences. If you think your little diva or prince is an Academy Award winner or cover girl waiting to happen, be forewarned that there is no magic formula for success. It’s a combination of luck, persistence and commitment and when you’re young, looks will only get you but so far. Judy Battista of Parkside Talent in Florham Park, NJ has been a personal manager for 10 years. She grooms children between the ages of 4 – 12 for musical theater and commercial opportunities. She got her start as a stage mom guiding her own daughter through stints on off-Broadway, Broadway and television. “I look for a child who is outgoing, has personality and they can not be shy,” says Battista. Photographer Linda Bohm echoes those sentiments, “Personality is more important than looks because it gives you great expression,” says Bohm who specializes in children and animals. “I don’t shoot fashion, I shoot consumer. I’m looking for heart.” Before you even get to a Battista or a Bohm, you have to decide is this...

What is SEO Anyway?

Both pay-per-click and SEO are targeted to get your website placed as close to the top of search engine results as possible. Marketing and SEO are different, yet very, very similar. SEO are considered as the main factors in enhancing the traffic of one’s website. The concepts of good SEO are hardly a secret. The people who least understands issues with URL structure and SEO are the very people who create them: web developers, programmers, and software developers. Many long-time SEO’s are now looking at the big picture and working with usability analysts. Some SEO are scam artists. I find it interesting that so many newcomers are given the wrong impression that there is one almighty answer to doing well in search engines. SEO are specialized techniques used to optimize your web site, to be Search engine friendly and increase your chances of placing well in searches. But SEO can also be the most profitable methods of driving leads because any leads you receive from SEO are free leads. There are a large number of companies that adopt a fast and unethical approach to SEO known as Black Hat SEO. They employ unethical techniques that are against search engine policies. The best results from SEO are rarely achieved overnight. Black hat SEO are the techniques used to fool the search engines in order to bring in more traffic to...

Innovative Trend-Setting Marketing Concepts

Did you ever wonder where the trend setters get their ideas for what’s at the top of the leading trends for event planning, scheduling, or entertainment for corporate team building events? Social networking using innovative trend-setting marketing concepts brings solid brand recognition to the right market. In a recent conversation with an event planner, I noticed that he wasn’t really aware of the hottest new trends in entertainment and suggested he review some of the more popular current trend-setters. His response was curiosity, wondering what those might be. He truly had no clue who determined trends in entertainment for the corporate community. And because he lacked that information, his events weren’t happening as fast, or as profitably as he would have liked. The point is, when executive planners, or corporations make decisions about entertainment for events, they tend to follow “trends” set by the Fortune 500. If companies can afford to hire a band – at least a cover band – the chances are pretty good that they are NOT a Fortune 500, but rather a smaller company that follows the trends set by Fortune 500 companies. Those trend setters get their information about who’s popular, what’s trending, and why they should hire a cover band, or a band, from informative discussions in news magazines such as Forbes Magazine. Big companies, meaning boys that cap out wall street, earn...
