‘Ready for Ron’ Releases Research Illustrating Growing Positive Sentiment for DeSantis

Ready for Ron

Today, Ready for Ron, a draft committee encouraging Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, released research it commissioned from Impact Social showing growing support for Governor DeSantis. The report shows positive sentiment for Governor Ron DeSantis grew 8 points from an earlier analysis released last week. Impact Social researchers analyzed the publicly available social media discussion in relation to Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump among swing voters from June 15 to June 29, 2022. Additional reports are expected every two weeks. Previous reports can be found here. “We carried out detailed language analysis of US social media discussions back to May 2016 to capture social media users into a database of 40,000 swing voters,” explained Phil Snape, Director at Impact Social. “With 40,000 participants, we are operating what is likely the world’s largest focus group – as big as a Football stadium.” The summary of Impact Social’s second report states: The last fortnight has been a productive period for Ron DeSantis which has seen his net sentiment jump 8 pts (-14 to -6) among floating voters. Within the positive conversation (+2pts 19 to 21), those hoping to persuade DeSantis to run for president will be delighted to see the leading topic within this discussion is how they prefer DeSantis to Trump (33%). It is worth emphasizing these opinions are posted without coercion or provocation. These floating voters are merely stating online how they favor the younger man as their next president. A small percentage (4%) are even outing themselves as Democrats before volunteering their support should DeSantis stand. Intriguingly, there is a feeling among his supporters that a sense of momentum is developing around his potential presidential candidacy. They speak excitedly about a poll in NH, an ‘endorsement’ by Elon Musk or simply muse that DeSantis’ ‘is where the smart money is’, that ‘Dems want Trump because they can’t beat DeSantis’ or that Fox will happily anoint him as leader of the GOP when the time arises. A downward trend in the number of negative posts against DeSantis (-5pts 33 to 27) will be welcomed by his camp. Yet their boss continues to take hits from across the political spectrum as some GOP voters see him as too right wing and pine for a leader dedicated to smaller government. That said, the majority of criticism stems from the left who see DeSantis as an overbearing authoritarian. They use DeSantis’ recent decision not to order Covid -19 vaccination for FL kids as a prime example of what he is capable of. This, together with perceived attacks on LGBT rights and support for gun laws increases anxiety among the left many of whom see him as a danger to America. All of which, given the ideological standpoint of the authors, might be music to DeSantis’ ears. “We are excited to see our efforts are paying off. Support for Ron DeSantis continues to grow. While we expect the attacks to increase, we are delighted his support base is increasing too,” explained Ready for Ron legal counsel and spokeswoman Lilian Rodríguez-Baz. “We are hoping to build one of the biggest grassroots movements ever, and with support growing like this, it will happen even more quickly than we anticipated.” Ready for Ron continues its TV and online advertising efforts to engage Americans to sign the petition at ReadyForRon.com to Draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. While ‘Ready for Ron’ is completely unaffiliated with the DeSantis campaign per federal regulations, it has taken the novel step of submitting a formal Advisory Opinion Request to the FEC seeking to share its growing supporter list with Governor DeSantis if the Draft succeeds and he announces his candidacy. Impact Social is a specialist social media, online monitoring, and analysis company. It uses big data software to track over 60 million online sites including Twitter, Facebook, all blogs, forums, and news websites.

tvScientific Partners with MetricWorks for Enhanced Incrementality Validation

tvScientific

Leading, connected TV performance advertising platform tvScientific today announced its partnership with MetricWorks, the leading provider of media mix modeling-based incrementality measurement which closes the gaps in last-touch measurement in a privacy-safe way. The strategic partnership will bolster digital-first marketers’ ability to more accurately measure CTV performance in their omnichannel strategies and to correct last-touch attribution. A comprehensive marketing solution, tvScientific improves upon its sophisticated CTV performance advertising platform designed to simplify and automate CTV buying and optimization with advanced performance measurement capabilities. Marketers will be able to have adjusted insight into walled gardens through tvScientific’s always-on incrementality testing. Comparable to the visibility typically available for search and social media channels, performance marketers are able to precisely measure the ROAS of all online and offline marketing including CTV by leveraging MetricWorks’ incrementality MMP, Polaris, a turnkey, drop-in addition that does not require any extra SDKs, device IDs or heavy migration lift. Through Polaris, digital marketers will be able to uncover and measure new opportunities and lift of offline spend including CTV’s cross-channel synergies and organic interactions. The integration of MetricWorks’ fully automated, granular, daily incrementality measurement outputs into tvScientific’s platform validates CTV performance in daily marketing mixes by effectively measuring the medium’s powerful ability to drive incrementality. “With the 108M streaming households market presence of CTV, digital marketers should be looking at CTV as another attractive performance channel in their daily marketing mix,” said Jason Fairchild, CEO and co-founder of tvScientific. “tvScientific’s partnership with MetricWorks will provide performance marketers with deep and comprehensive insight into campaign performance across platforms while proving that CTV has truly been undervalued due to limitations in last-touch attribution.” Leveraging the combination of tvScientific’s granular first- and third-party data and MetricWorks incrementality measurement outputs powered by data science and machine-learning, performance marketers can more accurately compare traffic types of CTV against other channels through tvScientific’s self-serve platform. “Today’s digital marketer needs to have a holistic understanding of how each platform is performing in a marketing mix and MetricWorks is tactically engineered for successful daily marketing effectiveness,” said Brian Krebs, CEO and co-founder at MetricWorks. “We’ve seen CTV significantly undervalued by last-touch across our customers, often because the bulk of its impact is felt higher in the funnel. The partnership with tvScientific will enable marketers to apply performance marketing strategies to advanced television and leverage media mix modeling to drive ROI on an undervalued channel.” About tvScientific tvScientific is the most sophisticated performance advertising platform built for connected TV.

Goodway Group acquires Canton Marketing Solutions to boost its martech and data consulting capabilities

Goodway Group

Goodway Group has announced the acquisition of UK-based Canton Marketing Solutions. The business will be merged with its marketing transformation consultancy Control v Exposed (CvE), which is run by ex-Havas Media Group CEO, Paul Frampton-Calero. The expanded 40-person strong operation will accelerate CvE’s growth, and strengthen its expertise in martech consulting, data engineering and in preparing global consumer brands for third-party cookie depreciation. Founded in 2019, CvE has become recognized for its expertise in helping global brands define and deliver the future state of their marketing organization. It does this by operating at the strategic transformation level through agnostic advisory services and hands-on expertise in platforms, analytics and marketing technology.​ The business has since expanded its service offering from a focus on operating models (developing effective in-housed or hybrid agency/ staff marketing teams and helping brands gain media-buying independence) - into technical models; namely martech consultancy (evaluating and selecting the right technology to power marketing operations) and data engineering (ensuring data connectivity and liquidity between platforms). Canton’s co-founders Rob Webster and Nick King join the CvE leadership team as Global VPs of Strategy and Commercial, respectively, reporting to Paul Frampton-Calero. “Few businesses can be impartial when it comes to consulting. Whether it’s opting to in-house media buying or technology transformation, a consulting arm’s vested interest is usually to recommend the product its parent sells. That doesn’t always lead to the best growth outcomes for clients. Only through independence, where the business model isn’t built on selling someone else’s product or one of your own sister companies, can you be impartial. Ambitious global consumer brands value marketing transformation consultancy when it’s truly independent,” commented CvE president, Paul Frampton-Calero. “Canton has incredible capability in helping companies choose and onboard the best martech, and are experts in data engineering, a perfect complement to our operational team-and-culture strategic approach. They’re well-known for helping Vodafone successfully in-house its media, and we have already collaborated successfully on transformation projects for CvE clients, Boots Media Group, HMD (Nokia), Staples, TravelSupermarket, Ziglu/ RobinHood Crypto and others.” “All businesses are on different stages of digital marketing maturity, but very few could be described as fully optimized. As such, they’re losing money through ineffective digital marketing,” added Rob Webster, Global VP of Strategy at CvE. “CvE stands out in this growing category because they take a strategic, trusted advisory role in-between agencies and management consultancies. We could not be more excited to join the team and help drive growth both in the UK, the US and APAC.” “Canton disrupted the market when we launched four years ago, giving businesses a new way to get advice and support to upgrade their digital marketing. This acquisition represents the second phase of our evolution and will be a continuation of the work of the last three and a half years,” said CvE Global VP of Commercial, Nick King. With respective growth rates of 277% and 183% for CvE and Canton in 2021 - and considering the complementary nature of existing and target client profiles - Goodway Group believes that combining the two businesses will give the company greater scope for growth. The company also plans to use the merger to broaden its service offering for a new and expanded client roster which now includes Flutter Group (Paddy Power, Betfair, Pokerstars), Vodafone, Reckitt Benckiser, BBC, Ice Travel Group/ TravelSupermarket, KFC, Boots Media Group and HMD/Nokia. About CvE CvE is a partner for brands who are tired of dealing with "Business as Usual", and aren't afraid to admit they need some help so they can focus on the bigger picture issues that matter most to their brand. We are a nimble and efficient team that will sit alongside you while we diagnose the issues, then we will take them off your plate and solve them one at a time.

Minuteman Press Franchise Owners André and Cindie Nel Grow Business in Costa Mesa, CA

Minuteman Press International Inc

In January 2020, André and Cindie Nel realized their dream of owning a business in the US by purchasing their Minuteman Press franchise located at 2930 College Ave., Unit C in Costa Mesa. “We have both always been entrepreneurs at heart,” says Cindie. As a dynamic husband and wife duo, André and Cindie have combined their strengths to create a highly successful Minuteman Press business in Costa Mesa, California, with strong growth since buying the business during the pandemic and through to today. Journey from South Africa to Costa Mesa Hailing from South Africa, André, as part of an owner run business, built a significant multi temperature logistics and distribution company for several large US fast food franchise brands. Cindie, through her strong sales and account management skills, built an innovative telecommunications brand. Cindie shares, “André, recognizing the value in investing in leading US Franchise organizations, set about purchasing a franchise in the US. Minuteman Press International, with its solid track record and stellar reputation not only in the US but in other global markets including South Africa, made the Minuteman Press franchise opportunity a front runner. This, combined with André being a college marketing major and me being a public relations major, meant there was an obvious synergy in the commercial print world, and this made Minuteman Press the perfect business opportunity for us.” Now operating in Costa Mesa for over two and a half years, André and Cindie have fully integrated themselves and Minuteman Press into their community. André says, “Costa Mesa is an inclusive community with businesses choosing to shop and support local and we have seen huge benefits in both supporting and receiving local support. Support includes not only business but also sharing facilities and neighborhood responsibilities.” “With so much being ‘virtual’ in today’s society, print is still something tangible that people can touch and feel and use to connect more personally with potential and existing clients. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is the importance of connecting with one another at every opportunity, be it postcards, brochures, apparel, signage, customized mailings, etc. Print is highly personal and society is craving more and not less of it.” -Cindie Nel, co-owner, Minuteman Press, Costa Mesa Building the Business in Costa Mesa To grow the business, André and Cindie have successfully differentiated themselves from the competition. André explains, “Earning our clients’ trust through personal service, quick turnarounds and over delivering on expectations sets us apart from our competitors. We’ve learned to understand each client’s specific requirements and tailor our solutions accordingly. Rather than be a ‘Jack of all Trades’ we strive to become an expert for their essential needs and grow into their requirements from there.” For Minuteman Press in Costa Mesa, key product growth areas include customized labels, stickers, books, and custom branded apparel. André says, “We’ve invested and skilled up in the label/sticker and book capabilities. We’ve realized the key is in-house, quick turnaround service. We are price competitive, however, not the cheapest in town. Our clients love our personal service, with pre-production samples and our ability to meet tight in-hand deadlines setting us apart from our larger competitors.” He continues, “We have also managed to grow our customized apparel business through a great partnership with a decorator with whom we work closely in understanding the balance between exceptional quality and meeting customer in hand dates.” When it comes to marketing the business, Cindie shares, “Our biggest growth initiatives have been online marketing through Google optimization, with our five-star Google Reviews being a massive contributing success factor. The Minuteman Press pedigree is also key in clients locating us through Internet search filters. Other major growth contributing factors have been personal networking and client referrals. One of our largest clients, a realty company, is a friend of ours and it’s rewarding to be a part of their marketing and business development success.” She adds, “When you’ve invested in paid Internet optimization and client referrals, it’s critical you answer the phone and email as quickly and as professionally as possible to ensure these opportunities are secured.” Why Minuteman Press? For André and Cindie, joining the Minuteman Press franchise family enabled them to realize their dream of owning a business while also providing additional resources and support. Cindie says, “Becoming integrated into the Minuteman Press franchise system has been seamless and successful due to the informative training at World HQ and the ongoing solid local support from our Regional VP Dan Byers and the local field team. Minuteman Press checks all the right boxes in terms of onboarding, operational and financial training, and franchise support.” She continues, “Additionally, where Minuteman Press hits the ball out the park is in the inclusive ‘Minuteman Press family’ culture where everyone supports each other in challenging times and cheers each other on and celebrates sincerely in each other’s achievements. This is what makes Minuteman Press the unique and special place that it is. During these unprecedented times we’ve all been facing, the kindness and generosity shown by our Minuteman Press family has been remarkable.” When asked about the rewards of business ownership, Cindie states, “Our biggest personal reward for owning our own business is that we get to remain connected with our children through time flexibility and the ability to support them financially. Our son, Ethan, is a Computer Science Engineering Major at UCSC. We love that we get to visit him and the beautiful campus and town of Santa Cruz. Our daughter, Madison, a Junior at San Clemente High School, is an aspiring actress and we love having the time and ability to share her dreams and passions.” Cindie adds, “Our professional rewards are how our clients have become our partners and friends resulting in doubling the turnover of our business in the brief two and a half years we’ve owned our shop. This has been achieved with the mindset that every project is about how we can add value to our clients’ businesses or employees. Without our strategic relationships with our suppliers and service providers this would be impossible, so we therefore value, support and deeply invest in these companies who are an extension of our family.” Advice to Others For others who are looking into owning a business, Cindie shares, “Our advice to business owners is to do as we did; learn from the best. The key to success is to know your local market and client base and to let them dictate what and how much to invest in in-house capabilities.” She concludes, “Become experts in your field. Never hand over a job that is anything less than exceptional and also package and label your orders in the manner that you as a client would like to receive them. Always be excited and enthusiastic about every job you do for your client and rewards will follow!” Minuteman Press in Costa Mesa is located at 2930 College Ave., Unit C, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.

Kivvit Wins Bronze for Most Innovative Agency at Bulldog PR Awards

Kivvit

Kivvit has won Bronze awards for Most Innovative Agency and Best Issue/Cause Advocacy Campaign at the 2022 Bulldog PR Awards. The annual awards presented by Bulldog Reporter are the only PR awards judged exclusively by journalists. They recognize the most outstanding public relations and communications campaigns, agencies and practitioners each year and are among the most respected distinctions in the field. Entrants submitted in more than 60 categories and were evaluated on their strategy, execution, results and innovation, among other criteria. The Most Innovative Agency designation recognized Kivvit’s focus on analytics-driven communications strategies to achieve extraordinary results for its clients. The firm’s proprietary methodologies for ESG and stakeholder intelligence lead its analytics product offerings and — along with an expansion of the firm’s in-house digital, insights and brand strategy teams — have continually reinforced Kivvit’s reputation as an industry-leading innovator. Kivvit’s winning issue advocacy campaign featured an integrated public affairs strategy to secure increased funding for nonprofit organizations operating in the intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) sector in New York. Through local and statewide media placements, social media, live and virtual events and state-of-the-sector reports, Kivvit was able to sound the alarm about the impacts of a worsening workforce shortage on the population the I/DD sector serves and successfully convey the need for immediate, long-term investment. As a result of these efforts, significant investments in the sector were included in the enacted 2022-2023 New York State Budget. “The resources included in the state budget are the biggest investment this vulnerable community has seen in more than a decade. It’s a testament to the excellent work of the team and the dedication of countless self-advocates, family members, care workers and vocal advocates in the state legislature who are committed to ensuring people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and the staff who support them in New York get the support and services they need and deserve,” said Kivvit associate director Josh Rosenfeld. Kivvit’s Bulldog awards come on the heels of several other high-profile industry accolades for the firm’s work, including the 2022 SABRE Award for Best in Show, the Reed Award for Public Affairs Firm of the Year, two American Association of Political Consultants’ Pollie Gold Awards, and selection as a finalist for PRovoke Media’s 2022 Digital Agency of the Year for North America.

The Channel Company

The Channel Company, global provider of news, insights, strategy, events, and marketing services for the technology industry, today completed the acquisition of the technology division of Incisive Media, which includes the media and event brands of CRN UK, Channel Partner Insight, and Computing. This strategic acquisition reunites CRN and CRN UK under the same company and provides the opportunity to link the Computing brand with The Channel Company’s Midsize Enterprise Services brand in a powerful, connected, global end-user community. “We are excited to formalise the addition of Incisive’s technology brands into our portfolio. This acquisition results in a leading position for The Channel Company in content and events in both the US and EMEA while the reunification of US and UK CRN brands will provide great benefit to both our audiences and clients”, said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. About the Brands CRN UK is the market-leading, trusted source of news and analysis for the UK technology channel. The brand is a focal point for face-to-face events, including the largest event on the UK IT channel calendar, the CRN Channel Awards. The Women in Tech Festival, held in partnership with CRN UK’s sister brand Computing, shows the brand’s ability to innovate with an event that features networking, mentoring, and workshops for a global audience. Channel Partner Insight serves leaders of international resellers, distributors, MSPs, and specialist consultancies tracking key trends and business challenges affecting this highly competitive strand of the IT channel. The brand takes a transatlantic view of the IT channel market and pioneered the ranking of the largest and most influential firms in its annual European Elite and Global Elite report. Computing is the leading source of business-critical information and data journalism for technology leaders. Computing’s flagship event — the UK IT Industry Awards, held with the support of the BCS and The Chartered Institute for IT — is the largest and most prestigious awards ceremony for the industry, with more than 1,500 attendees every year. New Global Opportunities The completion of this acquisition, in addition to global services organisation bChannels earlier this year, creates a powerful portfolio of solutions that will transform how we enable our clients to win anywhere in the world,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. The organisations share a common vision and culture to provide clients with the best possible outcomes, continued career development opportunities for employees, and a bold commitment to strategic growth for the company. Clients of CRN UK, Channel Partner Insight, and Computing will also benefit from the extensive portfolio of additional marketing, creative, events, and consulting services that The Channel Company offers.
