Hearst recently opened a new 26,000-square-foot studio to ramp up its video production, a move that emphasizes the commitment the media giant has to becoming a digital-first company. The new studio is a space that encourages the fluidity of today’s media age, with its multiplatform, multimedia demands.
While Martha Stewart’s brand is so well-defined it automatically evokes the image of totally put-together, picturesque domestic wonder, a lighter side shone through during her Q&A yesterday with Adweek editor Lisa Granatstein at Adweek’s Elevate summit: Stewart’s sense of humor. Of course, for those familiar with Stewart’s performance at the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber in 2015, Martha Stewart’s funniness isn’t news–but these Martha Stewart facts may be.
With in-house branded content studios becoming a standard part of any publication’s business model, some may be looking to the next step, graduating from creating one-off campaigns to going full-blown consultancy. For Wednesday’s Elevate summit, Adweek gathered a panel of five execs from media companies that have set out on that journey. Panelists shared their experiences and provided valuable insights into what other organizations should think about and plan for before making the jump.
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".
