Episode 015

Our hosts welcome Daniel Alfon, the author of “Build a LinkedIn Profile for Business Success,” to discuss best practices for leveraging LinkedIn for business marketing and personal branding. April and Chris also discuss the renaissance in TV advertising as streaming platforms continue to rise in popularity, and cast their industry predictions about the future of creator content. Next, they chat about the ramifications of Ronn Torossian’s decision to step down amid the scandal at 5W PR. For “Point & Counterpoint,” they’re breaking down the pros and cons of TikTok’s new ten-minute feature. Then, Chris and April share their hot takes on Folgers’ millennial-focused rebrand, the new Fruity Pebbles crossover with Lebron and Nike, and Dollar Shave Club’s new product campaign.
