Amongst an awesome team of Show Production personnel, the TOP Lady DJs in Electronic Dance Music and the top shelf list of sponsors for this event, Garnetta Clark, visionary — founder — WOMAN-in-POWER, of SheFM enlisted Shorty Produkshins for Event Branding & Marketing services for this much anticipated event!

 

SheFM Presents DivaDance 2013, an ALL WOMAN International Music Festival for Breast Cancer Awareness and Women's Empowerment in Electronic Dance Music.

 

CHECK THIS OUT:

LAS VEGAS, NV. — Women find support and empowerment, globally, through the First Annual DivaDance event in Las Vegas, NV. Releasing the “inner diva” through dance is one way SheFM hopes to strengthen an International family of women on the basis of music, sisterhood and breast cancer awareness. SheFM has been organizing and developing an event that would gather women into a centralized location in bringing hope and empowerment to women who have dealt with breast cancer, through that of a loved one or personal experience.

Breast cancer is not something to be taken lightly and is a very serious matter. Because a dark cloud often hovers victims and their families, SheFM has spent these last few years preparing a literal venue that would give back some joy and happiness into these lives and embeds in their hearts a weekend to remember! SheFM now presents to you… DivaDance.

In the ongoing support of breast cancer awareness, Garnetta Clark, the visionary behind SheFM, designed DivaDance to engage communities through Electronic Dance Music, a genre that tends to be male dominated, and women in that field go underappreciated. Connecting women with such a high-energy event will help them morally, emotionally, and physically, as vibrations through high-positivity energies, exercise and laughter will strengthen them through these difficult times. At the very least is sure to put  all women into good spirits and lead them into having a great experience at DivaDance.

With a portion of ticket sales going directly to Breast Cancer Awareness and Research, SheFM has invited some of the TOP names in the World of Electronic Dance Music. As the event caters to women, the entertainment will comprise of mainly female acts. Among these acts are Lady DJs from around the world, spinning and making audience members unable to resist the need to dance and leave all worries in the parking lot.

Each year, new female artists perform for the mass fan who migrate to Metropolitan Areas, such as Chicago and Las Vegas, from all parts of the world. Additionally, SheFM© will nominate the DJ of that prospective year, as well as the “Producer of the Year,” “Label of the Year,” and the up and coming talent to watch!

That being said, SheFM welcomes everyone in support of Breast Cancer Awareness and who love Electronic Music, to join in the festivities in Las Vegas, NV on March 9-10. Two days of conferences, music, competitions, networking, meet-and-greets and more will be well worth the travel for international guests. The set venues are Rumor: Las Vegas, an elite resort setting, and The Larry Flynt Hustler Club, a reason to “love our boobies.” Both venues promise to be in good taste to all audience members, young and old.

Ticketing for these events are already selling fast and are projected to be sold out as the event date approaches. Currently, the roster includes the following mainstream DJs, who are also affiliated with SheFM’s 24/7 Online Radio station. There are a few surprise headliners and DJs that are still awaiting confirmation. Those confirmed Lady DJs include:

DivaDance is currently accepting sponsors, investors, advertisers and inquiries from the press. For more information on ticketing and DivaDance, be sure to visit the DivaDance Network at http://www.divadance.me for more information. Releasing the “inner diva” is our goal in creating sisterhood, empowering Women in Electronic Music, and supporting Breast Cancer Awareness. Join the community. “It’s more than a festival. It’s a lifestyle!”

About DivaDance:

DivaDance is an International Music Festival dedicated to the empowerment of Women in Electronic Dance Music and ongoing support of Breast Cancer Awareness. The event is to be an annual one with this as the commencement of decades to come.

Introducing you to the DivaDance annual event, the founder, Garnetta Clark, has always wanted to make a difference in the lives of all women around the globe. In discovering the two aspects of life that were “near and dear” to her, music and Breast Cancer Awareness, she began in the creation of SheFM and DivaDance.

Music has always been Garnetta’s passion, even at the mere age of 7.  Since then, Garnetta has always wanted to create an event that would forever and positively impact people’s lives — and particularly women. Hence, DIVA DANCE came to life!

DivaDance is an annual music festival that promotes, markets, and showcases female electronic dance music talent from all across the globe. Each year, new female artists perform for the mass fan who migrate to Metropolitan Areas, such as Chicago and Las Vegas, from all parts of the world. Additionally, SheFM© will nominate the DJ of that prospective year, as well as the “Producer of the Year,” “Label of the Year,” and the up and coming talent to watch!

 

About SheFM:

SheFM is an Online radio station, established in 2010, that focuses on the Women of Electronic Dance Music around the world. Creator Garnetta Clark had long realized the lack of support and empowerment of women in this particular genre and decided it was time to roll up her sleeves and make something happen for the World of Electronic Dance and the women in it. She can  especially relate to the many “lady DJs” that rarely get the opportunity to shine and become recognized in a male dominated world. The SheFM Station was the solution to this problem.

Brand Storytelling: Currently in the process of archiving history.

What a lot of businesses don’t realize is that while their history may not mold their current brand presence, the brand’s history IS the brand’s story. Brand Storytelling is one way to show enthusiasts tenure and how the brand has evolved into what it is today. It gives the brand’s side of the story, including “why,” “how” and “whens” that are important to understanding the way the brand operates.

At this present moment, I am currently moving all of the old archives saved from blogs, press, and news sections of old sites that have been stored on a Blogger account! Right about now, I am very grateful that I did that, or a piece of Shorty Produkshins history may have been lost!

ELEMENTS: Why Internet Marketing?

by | on December 31, 2012

Shorty Produkshins -- Social Branding & Event Marketing (Internet Marketing Orlando, Pittsburgh and WORLDWIDE)!

 

*This blog was never meant to be an actual blog. I was writing for inclusion on a website and decided that there are still many that don’t understand the importance of Internet Marketing. 

Internet Marketing is the driving force and connection between Online and Offline efforts. It keeps brands connected to their audiences and helps to create Brand Awareness on Cross Platform Capabilities. Take notice that 2013 is about expansion, and competition is high. How will you set yourself apart from your competition?

Internet Marketing can bring Brand Awareness far and wide. Depending on your brand’s products and services, it may be in your best interest to market locally. For many, nearby cities are the best target markets, especially if regional trade occurs. But, there are many that would like to reach National and International communities. In any of these situations, a SOCIAL PRESENCE is still a must.

Many people think that because they provide services locally that they do not have to be found on the “net” or do not need a strong presence if they do. This is not true on many levels. What they seem to forget is innovation adds to “expertise,” people relocate –visit– or help family in searching for ther needs (even at a distance), customer service can be inconvenient for those only available to do business after hours, and much more! Needless to say, in any territory, there WILL be competition. Be found easier, be a “better friend” to your consumers. They will love you for it. Combat negative reactions and attacks on your brand by competitors, troublemakers and dissatisfied customers. Internet Marketing can help.

Internet Marketing is such a broad topic, but it is also the title given to any form of marketing that takes place Online. Any form of Internet Marketing should reach specific and niche markets, include consumer input and personalization, boost awareness of a brand, expand reach, be a “no-brainer” for a consumer in need, and so on. There is, indeed, an exact science behind it. To be successful in Internet Marketing, one must understand that marketing is CATERING to the NEED of potential clients or consumers, while Advertising is CREATING THE ILLUSION OF A NEED through a WANT. Ethics are important. It will affect your brand’s reputation both OFFLINE and ONLINE.

In essence, building up your brand’s reputability will involve multiple elements of Internet Marketing. This is inevitable to thrive in a modern marketplace. If you want your brand to succeed, you must take advantage of this capability. Familiarize yourself with the multiple elements of Internet Marketing and decide what is right for you and your brand.

Different forms of marketing include, but are not limited to:

  • Blogging
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Social Network Marketing
  • Landing Pages with Calls to Action
  • Search Engine Marketing (SEM/Pay-Per-Click)
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Social Media Releases
  • Online Papers
  • Testimonials
  • Press Rooms
  • Revenue Building
  • Applications & Widgets
  • Mobile Marketing
  • Display Marketing
  • Content Distribution
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • E-mail Marketing
  • Local Business
  • Geo Targeting
  • Viral Marketing
  • Product Feeds

As mentioned earlier, there is a particular science to successful Internet Marketing. This will take time to learn, let alone to understand. It would be wise to find counsel with a professional or to outright hire one. We are here to help! The next time you are in need of Internet Marketing Execution or Internet Marketing Action Plans, contact us!

Increase sales, awareness and participation through Mobile Marketing.

by | on December 19, 2012

Shorty Produkshins has partnered up with Trumpia!Multi Channel marketing, mobile marketing, internet marketing pittsburgh, internet marketing orlando, internet marketing atlanta, jessica abraham

Sign up today for a FREE 30-Day Trial and receive double the benefits by using Promo Code: BRANDSOCIAL

 

It is projected that mobile will be nearly the number one means of Internet connection in 2013. Whether a mobile phone or a tablet device, it is expected that top companies alone will be spending $4.6 Billion dollars in just Mobile Marketing alone. Previously, it is estimated that top companies, combined with small businesses, have only put .9% of their stock into mobile marketing, while nearly 16% of all 4 Billion global users show conversions through Mobile Marketing. The interesting fact in this equation is that a majority of these people will never and have never seen any form of Mobile Marketing ever, can you imagine if they have? “Jumping on the bandwagon” now might not be a bad thing, at least before Mobile Marketing becomes overly saturated like MySpace and now Facebook is becoming.

Truthfully, Internet Marketing will always live on, as long as we are “always connected.” Social Branding will always be around, as long as digital products can be shared and consumed and people feel the need for a personal connection with their most beloved brands. And, Events will always need marketed as long as people are looking for something to do. So, let’s bring all of these elements together as one into an action plan.

I have recently partnered with Trumpia. I have been using them for a while now and think they are an excellent choice for any size business or brand. They have high profile products and plans, as well as ones set for low budgets, starting at $25 a month!

Let me interject on the topic of Trumpia before going into detail about this Mobile Marketing.

If you sign up today for a free 30-day trial (which can be cancelled before the month is up), you will get all kinds of benefits from the company that I am sure you will grow to love! But, the best part is that whatever you are getting, you are getting double that because I know you are going to use the promo code: BRANDSOCIAL. :) My special little treat to you… NOW, back to the regularly scheduled post.

Why do I support what Trumpia is doing? What do I even like about their platform? Why do I continue using it?

I don’t know if you guys remember (and I think I even posted about this brand one time) SayNow.com. This company was acquired by Google and no longer alive. Soulja Boy was one to make it famous due to his “Kiss Me Through The Phone” song. Basically, if you called or text that number, you were automatically made part of the SayNow Network. You could cancel at any time. But, you could expect BRAND updates via text, voice, e-mail and so on. Picture messages and videos could be traded. Live calls and voice messages could be connected and so much more.

To me, Trumpia is the “grown up” version of SayNow with very beneficial features for businesses (large and small), venues, events, doctors offices, schools, artists, studios, actors, authors and more! There are data collection features that prove very invaluable to a brand. Personalization is present and even reaches consumers on a very personal level!

Short codes are given for simple text campaigns, as well as QR (Quick Response) Codes. There are apps and widgets available to users. Coupons can be sent to brand loyalists, along with e-Card options (for Viral efforts). Appointments can also be set and reminded of through the platform. These are only a few of the reasons I am loving Trumpia in all of its glory!

Can you see now how a business professional could take advantage of this option? Now, let me get back to Mobile Marketing. Mobile Marketing allows for instant access in private. Individuals have been clocked to check their cell phones for text messages every three minutes. They do this out of fear that they have missed a text, double checking before and after gaming, out of boredom, while answering and sending other texts, and in between app usage — including Social Networks! To be blunt, “hit them where it counts.” That’s the mission! that’s the goal! That’s what will take a brand to conversion!

For a full Mobile Marketing campaign to see success in maturation, there are other things that can be done by a firm or agency, like Shorty Produkshins, that will treat your Mobile Marketing efforts as if they were the only option, knowing that there are indeed other options out there. Treating Mobile Marketing as an Internet Marketing campaign with Mobile Targets, app creation, mobile advertisements, mobile sites and more are only the beginning. We have to paint the picture for the brand. We have to BRAND the brand. Branding it socially has just now became more personal and the user is always “DIRECTLY connected” to a brand!

Consumers and brands are always within reach. Constant-but-not-spammy contact is available to engage consumers in conversation. Brands can poll the consumers directly and know who THEY are specifically. By doing this, less money can be spent on research, as consumers tend to answer “more truthfully” in private, especially on personal mobile devices! By knowing what your consumer wants and needs, you are able to cater to them specifically and give them EXACTLY what they desire. You listened to them. They will never forget it. Loyalty, virallity and Word of Mouth has now been set into motion!
