Binge-watching. We’ve all been there. “It’ll be fun,” your friend said, as you first logged in to her account, which is shared with two more of your friends. “You’re going to love it,” she said, as she grabbed you a blanket and asked what kind of snacks you wanted. Maybe she even made some tea for the occasion. I think we all remember the first show we really, truly binge-watched. (Mine was Orange is the New Black.)
Girl Tribe Co. is no stranger to Charlotte's female entrepreneurs. Creating a "tribe" of empowered local women online by way of a Facebook group (there are 10,178 members and counting), Girl Tribe has been infusing girl power into the Queen City since the fall of 2015. Formerly known as Pink Social, the company was started by local best-gal-pals Sarah Baucom and Carrie Barker as a graphic t-shirt company. But just as the company has grown its tribe over the years, its offerings have also evolved.
We say it all the time: "It's the giving season. It shouldn't be stressful!" Oh, but anyone who's had to decorate the house, grocery shop for a big family gathering, and coordinate all the festive events popping up on their calendar knows that being stress-free during this final stretch of the year is about as easy as pretending to love a gift you hate. It's almost impossible. Take it from someone who's had to painfully grin through not one but five years of socks as stocking stuffers.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
