Social Media Butterfly – Pittsburgh’s Premier New Media & Social Networking Service

10 Sep

Many companies or individuals don’t have a large advertising or marketing budget to promote themselves or their brand. All too often, they know about Twitter, Facebook, and other online mediums to promote their company, product, or service, but they just don’t know where to begin or if they can afford it.

There’s good news in store for you, if you or someone you know is one of these people!

Social Media Butterfly is a new social media consulting service based out of Pittsburgh, PA. Social Media Butterfly provides services like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn account management, but will also provide add-on services such as blogging, video-blogging, freelance writing, and other online marketing.

At rates beginning at $99/month, it is vastly more affordable than traditional advertising, and can reach audiences instantly while cultivating a “real” relationship with “fans”, “friends”, and “followers.”  Companies are now hiring social media strategists as full-time, salaried positions, but with Social Media Butterfly, you can pick and choose the services that you want, knowing that you’ll get devoted and personalized service to promote your company, brand, event, or product.

Thoughts on Tiger Woods new Nike commercial featuring his late father? It’s a No-Go for Me.

8 Apr

Definitely don’t call it a comeback! Not with THIS as fodder. My prediction? This commercial will have people talking about Tiger, and Nike, for sure…but probably not in a GOOD way.

I don’t care how well he is doing in the Master’s…..Tiger Woods’ new Nike commercial using his deceased father’s voice is, to me, both disturbing and inappropriate, verging on tasteless.

It is kind of creepy to listen to his dead dad doing a voiceover in a weak effort at rebuilding his much-tarnished image. Does it strike anyone else as odd and….irrelevant? What point are they trying to serve? That is father would think what he’s done is wrong? And how does that make me want to buy a Nike product? I suppose I “kind of” see what they were “trying” to do with this commercial, but, it didn’t appeal to me, whatsoever. In fact, it definitely left a bad taste in my mouth.

If you want MY humble opinion, Nike – being a sportswear company – should maybe focus on, oh, I don’t know – maybe his GOLFING TALENT and ATHLETIC ABILITY….after all, isn’t that why they wanted him to endorse their products anyway? What good did this ad do? It is just, I think, drawing more attention to his “situation.”

Aside from that, I’m sick of hearing about the “sex addict” and “sex therapy.” When a rich and famous person has indiscretions, it is an “addiction” and they act like it is an “illness”…when anyone ELSE does it, they are just classified as, well, a person with low morals, a cheater, a jerk, or a skank. (<~~Insert your own choice words. Jerk and skank are pretty mild terms.) Why IS that? It just bugs me.

But, that’s neither here nor there.

His image as a goody-goody family man is long gone. Get back to golf, Tiger. You’re doing well on that front. Nike – maybe take note of that and keep his dead relatives out of his next commercial.
