Every crisis communications situation is a true crisis to the people churned up in the middle of it. It can feel overpowering, and is often full of warts and land mines.

Crisis communications in the healthcare industry has greater magnitude, however, due to the nature of how customers and other stakeholders uniquely view a healthcare organization. They usually WANT to trust a healthcare organization – to provide high-quality care, care...

We marketers love (underscored, bolded and in all caps) to critique messaging. From television spots to billboards to the back of our shampoo bottles (this is a real thing that happens in marketing people’s showers across the world, trust me), we’re really good at asking, “What did THAT mean?” and “What were they thinking?”...

Last week, I was on a panel of very talented ad, PR and design pros speaking at the AAF Reno Power Lunch of the month. You had to be there to get all the nuggets of wisdom from my colleagues and me, but here were a handful of themes that I heard from most of us:

This month I was honored to be one of a handful of marketing and advertising professionals interviewed for Nevada Business Magazine's cover feature on Corporate Branding. Writer Doresa Banning did a great job of melding what I'm sure was a wealth of information from the six of us. After interviewing me for more than 30 minutes she was still curious and interested and...

KPS3 has uber-embraced technology in marketing. Probably earlier and much more passionately than most companies that started out as marketing/ad/PR agencies. We use it constantly and effectively to help clients achieve marketing goals.

So no surprises when a few weeks ago I was speaking at a conference for start up companies and entrepreneurs,  there was a lot of discussion and...

I am not sure how many times I have said "content is king" since I became a professional in the marketing industry, however I know it is more times than I can count. I too am a believer in this concept, and in fact believe content is not only king, but also queen, princess, prince and even Simba (Disney reference for all of you that do not have young kids).

I can't resist information about humans' irrational behaviors. How can you even begin to explain some of the odd, fascinating things we do?

I am therefore re-posting this blog post from one of my favorite industry writers, Seth Godin. Take a read and then think about one thing you've done today that activated YOUR lizard brain.

This past Friday (and part of the day Saturday) several members of KPS3 participated in Reno Wired. If you don't know already, Reno Wired is a 24-hour, nonprofit brandathon. If that doesn't really make sense either, it's really just a group of people working for 24 hours straight to redesign all of a nonprofit's print pieces and website. And it was amazing.

For this years event, Reno Wired chose...
