Electric Guitar debuts on AIM with big plans following 3radical acquisition

Electric Guitar PLC

Electric Guitar PLC (AIM:ELEG) CEO John Regan spoke to Proactive's Stephen Gunnion following the company's listing on London's AIM market following the reverse takeover of 3radical. Regan emphasized Electric Guitar's "buy and build" strategy, which involves acquiring complementary businesses to enhance their market position. Despite the challenging market conditions, the company managed to complete its IPO on AIM, a testament to its team's strength and compelling business proposition. 3radical specialises in collecting first-party data—a valuable asset in today's privacy-focused advertising market. This acquisition marks Electric Guitar's entry into the technical side of the advertising industry, responding to significant shifts such as reduced accessibility to third-party data due to privacy regulations. 3radical's technology allows for real-time adaptation to user input, which is unique in the market and enhances the relevancy of advertising. Furthermore, Regan said 3radical's extensive database of engagement events offers potential for advanced machine learning applications, positioning Electric Guitar to exploit AI technologies effectively. Looking forward, Regan outlined plans to enhance sales and marketing efforts, particularly focusing on exploiting the newly acquired technologies and data assets from 3radical. Electric Guitar is also preparing to expand its portfolio by acquiring additional complementary businesses, aiming to leverage these new assets to secure a competitive advantage in a rapidly evolving market.

Warren Buffett Sued by Shareholder Who Was Arrested at 2023 Shareholders’ Meeting for Raising Bill Gates/Jeffrey Epstein Issue

NLPC

National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) has filed a federal lawsuit in Omaha against Berkshire Hathaway and its Chairman, Warren Buffett. The lawsuit, seeking monetary damages, stems from actions taken by the company during last year's shareholders’ meeting where NLPC Chairman Peter Flaherty raised the issue of the reputational risk to the company posed by Buffett holding the posts of both Chairman and CEO. Flaherty cited Buffett’s strong public identification with Bill Gates, and Gates relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. Flaherty had his microphone cut, was ejected from the arena and was arrested. Charges against Flaherty were quickly dropped by the local prosecutor. Flaherty is scheduled again to speak tomorrow at the Berkshire shareholder’s meeting in support of NLPC's proposal that Berkshire disclose the risks of its investments in China. Click here for the Complaint. Founded in 1991, the National Legal and Policy Center promotes ethics in public life through research, investigation, education and legal action.

Listen B*tch Tackles Toxic Bounce Back Culture, Encouraging New Moms to Embrace ‘Mom Puberty’ Instead

Listen B*tch

Canadian wellness brand, Listen B*tch, is launching a campaign that challenges bounce back culture and urges new moms to embrace the physical, psychological, and emotional transformation that comes with motherhood - a process they’re calling ‘Mom Puberty’. The campaign launches with a series of rallying billboards across Toronto alongside a digital gallery that offers an unfiltered view on the postpartum period while encouraging women to dismiss societal pressures to 'bounce back'. The campaign targets bounce back culture which disregards the physical and mental recovery needed postpartum and places unrealistic expectations on women to “snapback” to their former selves. “Embracing and normalizing the change you're experiencing is a powerful way to combat bounce-back culture,” says Listen B*tch Co-Founder, Daniela Angelucci-Rizzi. “Similar to adolescence, becoming a mother is a transitional period which involves physical, hormonal, psychological and emotional changes. That process is known as 'Matrescence’. Or as we like to call it - ‘Mom Puberty”. The campaign aims to redefine the cultural conversation around postpartum experiences by presenting a more realistic view of the joys and hardships that new motherhood presents. As part of this initiative, Listen B*tch is launching an online gallery showcasing unfiltered portraits of postpartum moms. The portraits are accompanied by personal narratives that explore their transformative journey into motherhood - the challenges, triumphs, and the things they think new or expecting moms should know. In addition to the online gallery, Listen B*tch is bringing this campaign to the streets of Toronto with billboards that champion the same message. The billboards can be found at, College & Dovercourt, Queen St West & Augusta Ave, Dundas St West & Rusholme Rd, Queen St West & Noble St, Queen St West & Triller Ave, and College St & Clinton St. On May 6th from 5pm-9pm, the general public will have the opportunity to attend an exhibit of the project at Cry Baby Gallery in Toronto. The brand is also donating copies of their New Mom and Pregnancy Affirmation Card Decks to support groups at Sunnybrook and North York General Hospital, as a way to provide tangible support and encouragement to women navigating the complexities of motherhood. To capture the raw portraits of the Canadian moms, Listen B*tch partnered with Toronto-based photographer and mom, Jorian Charlton whose work has been featured at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Art Gallery of Mississauga, and the critically acclaimed exhibition - The New Black Vanguard. Listen B*tch is a Canadian, women-owned wellness brand that was co-founded by entrepreneurs Daniela Angelucci-Rizzi & Michelle Osei-Bonsu. The brand, best known for their cheeky deck of affirmation cards, launched two new affirmation card decks in 2024 focusing on expecting moms and new moms. Contact Details Langton PR Inc.

The Media Agency Shift - Genius Monkey’s Assessment

Genius Monkey

Looking back 20 – 25 years ago, you simply could not get your commercial on TV, your ad on a billboard, or mailers sent out to your audience without going through an advertising agency. They were the end-all-be-all for anything you needed in marketing and there really was no other option. But the advertising landscape has changed dramatically in the last couple of decades, thanks in no small part to new technologies and – more recently – a worldwide pandemic that changed how many companies prioritize resources. The media agency is going through a paradigm shift. Here is our assessment of where we are and where we are going. The COVID Effect In 2013, around 58% of marketers had transitioned to in-house agencies in an effort to cut costs and middlemen. When the pandemic hit in 2019, this process accelerated and saw many businesses adopt the in-house method, whether they were ready for it or not. Many companies’ internal teams – which were already understaffed and overworked – quickly began getting overburdened by the immense workload. Agencies that previously had Google experts, GRP buying teams, social media departments and more were now being significantly downsized, sometimes reducing teams to as little as 2-5 people in total. These teams were also generally using self-serve platforms, a supposedly cost-effective solution where the advertiser builds and maintains campaigns themselves. If the team found themselves lacking the expertise needed on certain platforms or ways of buying media, there wasn’t much they could do. Marketing suffered, and many companies found themselves in this situation amid the upheaval of Covid-19. From Self-Serve to Fully-Managed For better or worse, the majority of the industry followed this path. In 2023, a full 82% of marketers had transitioned to an in-house model; today, many teams are now starting to feel the squeeze. They need more efficient tools and all-in-one platforms that can help them do more with less time. Enter the fully-managed platform, where the ad tech companies build and maintain the campaigns for the advertiser. With this methodology switch, advertisers can remain on 15-20+ DSPs/networks in a fraction of the set up and management time, all while having a much more accessible and digestible all-in-one reporting location. Above all, advertisers could make use of the expertise that came with a fully managed platform: a support group they could always come to for help with specific and nuanced marketing questions. Ad placements and programmatic campaigns become a footnote so in-house teams can focus on branding, company voice, and other areas where they are the experts. The Media Agency Shift So where does this leave the media agency? There are things that an agency can do better than anyone; there’s no better partner for brand development, TV GRP buying and more. But in an evolving landscape, agencies also need to adapt if they want to thrive. The best agencies find the best partners and assimilate a team with the expertise to help companies thrive and aggressively pursue their goals. Embracing fully managed platforms is just one example of how agencies can reap the same benefits as the in-house teams with: Full ad coverage with placements on all devices Access to programmatic experts Campaigns supervised by humans instead of an AI. Decreased costs and more efficient workflows. Genius Monkey data alone shows a 19% better cost per conversion on fully managed over self-serve with even better metrics on CPC, CPM and other key data points. Efficiency is the metric of the future, and fully-managed platforms are built to deliver it. The Genius Monkey Difference Of course, not all programmatic platforms are created equal, and finding the right fit is step one to reaping the benefits of modern marketing. Featuring the latest technologies and spanning dozens of networks and DSPs, Genius Monkey is the farthest-reaching platform on the planet, built to track every detail of the customer journey and cut your cost-per-conversion. No matter your audience, no matter your industry, Genius Monkey can help you evolve your marketing to the next level. Get in touch with us today to see how!

FTN Network Releases 2024 NFL Draft Team Grades and Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide Following 2024 NFL Draft

FTN Network

FTN Network, a company built for delivering affordable, customizable, and highly detailed NFL advanced charted data for betting, season-long fantasy, and daily fantasy, ushered the 2024 football season today with the release of its 2024 NFL Draft Team Grades and 2024 Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide 2.0. The guide, which is authored by FTN President and Sirius XM Radio Host Jeff Ratcliffe, features rookie rankings, projections, veteran comps, dynasty value, trade value charts, draft boards, and more. FTN’s 2024 football season started on a high note with a successful weekend of NFL Draft coverage after providing NFL fans with some the most accurate set of mock drafts in the industry. In a field of 137 contestants, three FTN analysts finished in the top 15 of the FantasyPros mock draft accuracy contest: Tyler Loechner (4th place), Ratcliffe (13th), and Chris Meaney (14th). No other media company had two or more analysts finish inside the top 20 and Ratcliffe has now finished 13th or better in back-to-back years. FTN’s coverage included a live blog with instant reactions and fantasy projections from Ratcliffe for every fantasy-relevant rookie selected during the first three rounds of the draft. In addition to Ratcliffe’s projections and analysis, the coverage included insight from FTN’s Chief Analytics Officer and DVOA inventor Aaron Schatz, Mike Randle, Meaney, fantasy analyst Adam Pfeifer, and rookie expert Jeremy Popielarz. FTN also produced immediate, instant-reaction video breakdowns during the first night of the draft. “We provided fans with the most accurate information before the draft, live fantasy analysis during the draft across multiple mediums and the most comprehensive rookie fantasy scouting guide in the market,” said FTN Network CEO Perry Gershon. “Our extensive coverage of the NFL draft and our ongoing analysis of the incoming rookie class continues to prove that FTN is the one-stop-shop for NFL fans, fantasy players and bettors.” Along with pre, post and in-draft content, Randle gave all 32 NFL teams a 2024 Draft grade on the A-F scale. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers topped Randle’s charts with A+, A and A grades, respectively. The Carolina Panthers, Las Vegas Raiders and Dallas Cowboys rounded out the bottom of the 32 teams, receiving C grades. Additionally, Randle provided fantasy grades for every team that saw the Chargers score the highest (A+) and the Atlanta Falcons and Cowboys score the lowest (F). While Ratcliffe’s 2024 Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide had been released prior to the draft, version 2.0 is now live and includes post-draft information. It can be found here. The guide includes 150 player-by-player breakdowns, draft boards, player comps, rankings for regular and superflex leagues, a dynasty rookie pick trade value chart and more and will be continuously updated before the start of the 2024 NFL season. About FTN Network FTN Network is a sports data B2B and fantasy sports and betting media B2C company. Founded in 2020, FTN gives the fantasy and sports betting community an edge through their own unique ecosystem - providing customizable tools that turn raw data into true insights while also offering expert analysis and content to help users make the best decision possible.

Hong Kong Authorities Approve Bitcoin and Ethereum ETF, A New Dawn For These Tokens?

Kangamoon

After the Hong Kong regulatory authority's approval of Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs, the crypto market is set to witness a resurgence. Some of the tokens that badly need this approval are Ethereum (ETH) and Polkadot (DOT) which have slipped considerably in the wake of the bearish sentiments. For KangaMoon (KANG), the development is a good way of continuing its bullish momentum, projecting it as one of the best meme coins to buy now. KangaMoon (KANG)- An Injection of Fresh Idea KangaMoon's fresh idea is set to revolutionize the meme coin market. The platform blend of SocialFi and GameFI models projects it as the future of meme coin utility, offering a platform where participants come together for an immersive gaming experience. KangaMoon's ideas also transcend to making the platform a user-centric one. Every participant on the platform has a chance to earn significant rewards through their active participation. Players earn through weekly, monthly, and quarterly competitions. Spectators earn through predictive betting while holders get free tokens through simple social tasks. At stage 5 of the ICO campaign, KangaMoon has broken through as one of the best meme coins to buy. Its native token KANG has witnessed huge growth, rising from $0.005 at inception to $0.0196 now. With the price rising, investors have also pocketed a 290% ROI for holding on to the token. With the listings across major exchanges set to happen in Q2 2024, KangaMoon's potential ROI could be up 1000%. Although the token has proved itself in the meme coin market, keen watchers believe more are still to come. With events such as the approval of Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs and the upcoming bull market, KangaMoon can truly serve investors with a bounce to $1. Can The Effect of Hong Kong ETF Approval Kickstart a New Dawn For Ethereum (ETH)? Ethereum (ETH), the number two crypto, has witnessed a subdued performance in recent times, losing almost $1000 of its price value within a few months. However, the recent approval of the Ethereum ETF in Hong Kong is expected to trigger a massive rally in the next few months. Even though the Ethereum token still has the US SEC to contend with, Ethereum EMA is battling hard to find support at the $3k threshold. If Ethereum's price can find support, analysts observe that it may restage its move above the key resistance level of $3500. Otherwise, a pullback to below $3k can not be ruled out. Holders Expect Polkadot (DOT) To Surge After Breaking Key Support Level Now that Polkadot (DOT) has broken out of the support level of $6.5, the token may be set for an extended spell with a bullish sentiment. From the trading outlook, the Polkadot token is moving next into the 100-day EMA located at $8.1 and the Fibonacci retracement level situated at $8. This audacious jump by Polkadot may be due to the recent massive adoption of the Polkadot network by many projects. Projects such as Moonsong Labs, Origin Trail, and Neuro Web AI have all embraced Polkadot silky blockchain as their preferred network to drive their platform growth.
