QUICK PR READS YOU CAN TACKLE BETWEEN BITES
Happy Tuesday, Lunch Breakers. We hope you thanked a veteran for their commitment and dedication to serving our country and defending our freedom.

Why Did The Chicken Cross-Up The Turkey?

Check out their ‘battle of the birds’ ad that will run across multiple platforms, including online and outdoors.
California Communicators During Crisis
The ongoing California wildfire in the Northern part of the state is now the deadliest and most destructive fire in the California’s history. Twitter is becoming a key resource for people in both Southern and Northern California to share pictures of the destruction and fundraising efforts. Communicators in organizations across the state are turning to social media and online newsrooms for ease in getting information out to the media and residents alike.
The Rise of Nanoinfluencers
If your brand is just getting hip to using social media micro-influencers – those with several thousand to tens of thousands of followers – get ready for social media marketing’s latest trend. Advertisers are now partnering with people who have as few as 1,000 followers. Companies see great value with this under-the-radar group because of ease in partnership and relatability with their audience.
