We’ve talked a lot about the blockchain, NFTs and Web 3.0 on Digging Deeper recently, but there’s a big concern out there over blockchain technology and its carbon footprint.

The effort is being cataloged at UntilYouOwnIt.com where female and non-binary agency owners can join and participate in mentorship...

Public relations is perhaps one of the segments of the marketing world that has changed most in the last 20 years or so. That’s largely because the media landscape has changed and media relations is a big part of the PR world. When traditional journalists, editors and producers are no longer the gate keepers, but you’re still charged with earning coverage and attention for your company, you have to shift with the market.

The American’s With Disabilities Act or ADA is no less meaningful and relevant that the Civil Rights Act to companies today. But businesses often fail to consider how people with vision, hearing or physical disabilities can or cannot consume their online content.

The healthy beverage aisle in your grocery or convenience store just keeps getting more and more crowded. The so-called Functional Beverage market is already a $50 billion industry. Amid fighting one another for dominance, brands in the category also have to battle the big-budget sugary drinks brands for consumer's attentions.

Why on earth would someone enter that market with a startup brand, then? Rusty Jones, the co-founder an...

Google announced last year that sometime in 2023 it will no longer support browser cookies that advertisers often use to both target and retarget online ads. Firefox and Safari were ahead of the Google curve on that, but it wasn’t a dire concern until Google’s Chrome browser fell into line.

Now, you still have 2022 to make adjustments and figure this all out. We’re going to start talking about it today with Joe Singer of Merged Anal...

As we close out Digging Deeper for 2021, I thought it best to return to a core focus of all good marketing communications and that is storytelling. All the technical wizardry and business objectives and channel approaches do you no good unless you are able to leverage all of them to tell a strong story.

Paul Furiga has written and edited 20,000 stories as a journalist, covering everything from murders to the White House. When he mov...
