The 63 Year Old Gaming Publisher

The 63 Year Old Gaming Publisher Publisher's Clearing House

If you’re looking for media jobs with new and innovative companies, it’s likely that you may have investigated opportunities with a gaming publisher. After all, gaming is one of the fastest growing and most popular markets in the world within the sphere of technology. But gaming isn’t only, as many think of it, developing MMORPGs or the next Minecraft. In fact, if you’re looking for a job in gaming that’s kind of under the radar with probably a lot less competition, you might want to consider jobs at Publisher’s Clearing House. Yes, you read that right. Confused? Don’t be. The company that you probably associate with magazines, large checks being delivered to people’s doors while the cameras are rolling, and probably older people (if you’re being honest) is actually the fifth largest gaming publisher in the world today. Yes, really. PCH uses gaming and flash-purchase opportunities to keep their customers entertained and engaged once they’ve registered online in the hopes of getting one of those big checks delivered to their own door. How is a 63 Year Old Gaming Publisher the 5th Largest? Forget about the magazine subscriptions your grandmother bought trying to win big with the company, today’s PCH is all about data and marketing automation. The company…

What You Need to Know from Google I/O 16

Google IO 16 What you need to know

If you are a business type that wants to make $1 million or more at your next job, then Google I/O 16, is an event you should follow. Since when is a techie event critical learning for business types?  Because it updates you on how far many of the technologies have come and, if Google is doing it, you can be sure there are a number of great competitors that may be doing it better. At this year’s Google I/O 16 there were some great innovations that were showcased from a new home virtual assistant to the new realities of Virtual Reality. As Machine Learning becomes more of an everyday application Google presented how they are applying Machine Learning to Google’s core products. Here is a quick summary of some of the key learnings: Google Home Google is definitely playing catch up with Amazon’s Echo and is launching its own virtual assistant for your home later this year.  This voice activated device is also meant to be placed in your home and allows for access to Google without your phone or desktop.  Google likens this to a controller for the home that is capable of communicating with in home gadgets…

General Electric is Prepared for Octopus

Octopus GE ad campaign

Is it even possible to stand out and get noticed through advertising campaigns anymore? Of course, but in an age where almost literally everything you could ever want to know about anything is available with a few keystrokes, you may need to use octopuses raining from the sky and threatening to destroy our way of life to get attention. At least this was the idea that ad agency BBDO had for their client GE in an ad that hit various online and social channels earlier this month, and it seems to be a hit. The 60 second spot is called “Raining Octopuses” (of course), and launched March 11 as a paid spot on NowThis News and GE’s social channels.  “The idea was that it would be raining something so unique and different, but it had to rain something really bizarre, and it had to disrupt,” said Andy Goldberg, chief creative officer at GE. So, an octopus. As in disrupt the kinds of things that GE holds together, such as the power grid. This ad is a great idea and tackles what GE is all about from a different and unique aspect, which is how they are attempting to reach a new…

Could the Sale of Yahoo become the Next Google

Could the sale of Yahoo be the Next Google

When we think about who the next Google or Facebook might be, we’re usually considering startups, fledgling companies, or even ideas that haven’t been properly translated into businesses yet. It’s not often that “the next big thing” is actually an old thing that just still exists. The proverbial phoenix from the ashes. And if someone said that the sale of Yahoo could become this phoenix yet to rise, I would have laughed out loud. Until recently, anyway. Yahoo has been in steady decline for years, and even though Marissa Mayer seemed a promising savior for the floundering former online king of the hill, she wasn’t able to bear the weight of the sinking ship. Okay, maybe not sinking, but Yahoo isn’t exactly gaining in popularity either. It’s floating around with its head above water, unable to figure out how to move forward. Working at Yahoo is still considered prestigious, but not like working at Google. Customers aren’t leaving in droves, but they are leaving. They have assets and infrastructure, what they need is a vision and some guidance. So it wasn’t a huge surprise when Mayer announced back in February that Yahoo would be laying off 15% of the jobs at Yahoo and auctioning…

How would you like to spend the same amount of money this year on your credit cards but earn three times the points?  That’s lots more free trips for doing nothing different. Except one thing of course, joining Birchfinance.  According to Alex Cohen @alexcohenbirch, founder of Birch with his partner Alex Whiteside, the Chief Technology Officer, there is a very lucrative audience of points aficionados’’ who will be very interested in their program.  If the results subsequent to their presentation at Disrupt NY 2016, where 186 people signed up within…
