Show Notes

Why is it important to be choosy about brand affiliations as a blogger? The woman behind popular family lifestyle blog Thrill of the Chases, Alice Chase puts it simply, “You can't ever buy back your character.”

In this 2017 episode of the Social PR Secrets Podcast, Chase sits down with Lisa Buyer and VR/AR expert Cathy Hackl to discuss how she went from working in the corporate sphere to working as a full-time blogger. In addition to her long hours spent blogging, the mother of three also works as a consultant for a variety of brands, advising on the navigation of livestream and influencer engagement.

Chase provides insight into how to create a successful online presence and dealing with the pressures of comparison in a densely populated field by replacing the Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO) with the Joy Of Missing Out. Additionally, Chase stresses that successful blogs do not appear overnight. Mentorship, mutual support and continued education provide crucial steps toward success as a blogger.

“Influence is when you are able to tell a story , whatever that is, whether it's about a product, whether it's about your life, and it resonates with people” -Cathy Hackl

Steve Momorella Talks Online Newsrooms

Steve and TEKGroup International provide advice and services to different brands to establish and develop online newsrooms for over 20 years. Steve said during a crisis having an area on the website for an online newsroom that can be enacted quickly is very important to the brand. Although online newsroom can be seen as a generic term, for brands online newsrooms are a central communications center for all content including press relations and community relations. During the episode, Lisa and Steve discuss the meaning of an online newsroom and the importance of a company implementing them on their website or creating a separate domain for them.

He said many companies believe there is nothing breaking happening, so they cannot create news stories. However, Steve said companies can create news regarding any new developments in their company as well as information they believe will help people during a crisis. When asked if online newsrooms are still possible or important for e-commerce websites, Steve said they are an important addition to give the company a voice and that each product is an opportunity to tell a story.  Beyond giving a ...
