PodcastOne Chairman Norman Pattiz: Podcasts Enhance Brand Impact

If there is one thing that stays constant in the world of media and entertainment it is changed. Radio once overshadowed print newspapers, while the television, as the saying goes, killed the radio star. The advent of the moving image made it harder for a medium based largely on sound to capture people’s attention.

These days it seems that the internet is threatening to usurp the place that television sets once held in people’s lives as platforms like Netflix and Hulu have taken what people seem to like most about television: leisure and riveting storytelling and deliver on those factors ten times over.

Nowadays podcasts are picking up steam with networks like PodcastOne and other podcast industry players doing work that seeks to streamline and modernize the way that people consume and access podcasts. Will podcasts end up overshadowing radio in another seeming never-ending cycle of change in the world of media? With NPR have some struggles with getting younger listeners to consume their programming the answer is anyone’s guess.

What is becoming clear is that there is an explosion of podcasting content and that rise in content represents an opportunity for companies to connect with the people who are listening to it.

Something that every brand looks for when it seeks to build a partnership with a media partner is whether or not there will be any impact on a factor that is known in the marketing world as brand lift. According to Viget, brand lift is a rather straight forward concept. Learn more about Norman Pattiz: https://www.behance.net/normanpattf4be and http://normanpattiz.com/author/npattiz/

It involves enhancing the level of engagement that a consumer has with a brand through an effort like a marketing initiative. When brand lift occurs, according to Viget, it means that a consumer views the brand more favorably, has greater awareness of the brand or that their positive opinion of the brand has increased. Brand lift is essentially the desired outcome of any marketing, publicity or advertising initiative.

Companies pour millions of dollars each year into ads on billboards , radio, television, magazines, blogs and social networks to try to achieve brand lift. And even then they are not always successful. That said, many brands might find themselves wondering whether or not the untested waters of podcast advertising actually has the ability to help them make any movement where brand lift is concerned.

PodcastOne Chairman Norman Pattiz recently partnered with a research firm to test the efficacy of brand lift. According to PR Newswire the study was able to show that customers who listen to podcast ads do in fact tend to demonstrate more awareness of brands and perform well in other areas of brand lift.

The Rise of Hussain Sajwani as a Residential Real Estate Developer

Hussain Sajwani is a business mogul from the United Arabs Emirates. He began his career in food service industry before he gained some interests in the real estate industry while still learning his food service firm. He was able to attract diverse clients including Bechtel, a construction giant as well as U.S. military.

From his interest in real estate business, he decided to establish a real estate development company, and Damac Properties was born in the year 2002. Hussain was aware that Dubai government does not restrict foreigners from investing in properties and thus took advantage of that opportunity.

Sajwani bought a land in a town that was considered underdeveloped. Within six months he was able to develop a 38- story residential house of which most of the units therein were sold even before he began construction.

After this successful investment, he looked forward to making Dubai glitter by polishing its image, and truly, he has made it a bright destination for many people in the world. Sajwani became the president of Damac Properties in the year 2013 after the company partnered with Donald Trump with the aim of developing two golf courses that are Trump-branded. Learn more about DAMAC owner: http://www.damac.com/terms-of-use/http://www.damac.com/terms-of-use/

The first golf course was Trump International Golf Course Dubai and was opened early in 2017 while the second one, Trump World Golf Course is expected to be inaugurated in the year 2018.

When Trump was elected as the president, of the United States, he applauded Damac Owner during a press conference saying that he is a great and an amazing man. He added that Sajwani had offered him a real estate deal worth $2 billion in Dubai, but he had to turn it down.

Hussain Sajwani family went to visit Trump on New Year’s Eve as a friend and business partner having worked together for some time in the real estate industry.

Damac Properties has grown into a big and successful venture in residential real estate development and has employed more than 2000 employees. The company has also managed to create its capital and thus is publicly listed and traded in the finance market in Dubai.

Damac Properties has grown tremendously over the years through their ability to partner with other reliable brands in the market and also investing in viable projects such as Ta Golf Course.

Corrections officers, other customers speak highly of Securus video visitation

Ask any corrections officer what the most dangerous part of their day is, and they’ll usually tell you that it’s handling in-person visitations. The ability of prisoners to visit, face to face, with their loved ones has been upheld throughout most states. But this also represents one of the most serious security threats to the institution. In-person visitations are the time where contraband is most likely to be passed, violent conflict is most likely to erupt and corrections officers lives are most likely to be put at risk.

 

There are so many problems with in-person visitations that many wardens, throughout the history of the United States criminal justice system, have attempted to curtail them. One of the underappreciated risks of administering a visitation system is the necessity of moving inmates throughout the prison, from areas where they are normally housed into those areas where they are not. In America’s gang-infested prisons, this can easily lead to territory-based conflicts and violent assaults. More corrections officers have been seriously injured and even killed in the process of moving inmates throughout prisons than in any other aspect of their daily job duties.

 

But perhaps the most serious threats that in-person visitations present to the institution is the opportunity to move contraband within the prison. Many times, the visitors themselves will be complicit in smuggling things such as drugs, elicit cell phones and even deadly weapons into the prison. These things can and will be used by dangerous and violent criminals to hurt and even kill other prisoners as well as corrections officers.

 

Through its video visitation technology, Securus Technologies has dramatically reduced the number of in-person visitations that prisons need to deal with. This has been hailed by corrections officers as a major step forward and institutional safety.

Passengers Could Potentially Be the Biggest Beneficiary of the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT), particularly the Bluetooth beacon technology, is gradually but steadily revolutionizing how things operate. Things that were not previously connectable have been made to connect and even take commands from each other through the Internet. If research findings released recently by Gartner Inc. are something to go by, it can be expected that more than 25 billion things will be able to interconnect by 2020. As this happens, life will continue getting easier and smarter. Surprisingly, the airline industry is one of the industries to which the Internet of Things is positively impacting. Jason Hope, the undisputed technological futurist, was recently breaking the whole issue of IoT effect on air travel.

How IoT is Changing Air Travel

The IoT is making the relaying of information between staff members within planes and even between the plane and the staff on ground easy. Virgin Atlantic’s Boeing 787s, for example, has installed beacon technology that sends signals to the airbase if the plane malfunctions.IoT has also brought about positive changes to customer service. Some airlines are improving passenger convenience by assigning seats 24 hours before the time of flight. This has been made possible by a technology that automatically notes the order in which passengers book their flights. While in the plane, IoT can monitor the comfort standards of the passengers.Passengers’ luggage will soon be following their owners to the claim areas at the final destination. The IoT has a component that connects a tag stuck on luggage to the owner such that the luggage can identify who its owner is. With these types of technologies, among many others, the IoT qualifies as the technology of the future.

Richard Mishaan Invites Bold Styles for Any Interior Design

For interior guru Richard Mishaan, a bold and daring mixture of influences within interior design isn’t something a good designer should shy away from. On the contrary, in his newest book “Artfully Modern” you will see examples of colors, eras and styles thrown together not quite randomly, but certainly not exclusive of each other.

 

One clear sign of a Richard Mishaan design is an artful yet unexpected blend of individual pieces. In his apartment, a visitor will see modern masters full of comics and graffiti right alongside classical furniture of the 1930s through 1940s and even a 16th century gilded Italian mirror. For Richard Mishaan, as long as the pieces look harmonious together, he does not care about what date or era that they were created in. He has also designed a loft for a SoHo couple filled with antique furniture, taxidermy, and contemporary paintings. While that is a contemporary approach, it’s one he has been following religiously for thirty years.

 

Richard Mishaan was born in Cartagena, Columbia and raised partly in Italy. The Columbian and Italian influences continue to sway his work, especially when it comes to color. He continues to have homes in Italy, and still treasures his memories of Columbian cities and their bold, vibrant color schemes.

 

Those memories carry through when he decorates a home, usually with more than just a splash of color. His Hampton’s House, also featured in “Artfully Modern” pictures, has a bright blue and white kitchen, flame stiches, stripes, and even plain everywhere. Other, client kitchens are lime green and beautiful.

 

Richard Mishaan even has tips for decorating a small apartment. To make a small space seem bigger, paint warm white walls and a white ceiling to expand the room, even if it’s only a trick of the eyes. He also recommends floating the bed, rather than crunching it against a wall, to maximize space with two usable areas instead of one. In a living room, low chairs, strong colors painted behind a couch, and using two small tables are also good optical illusions to make a little space feel big.
