As an owner of a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Springfield, Mass., Michelle Wirth, head of industry – automotive for Quantcast, knows her cars, So when her take away from CES 2018 is that meaningful advances in autonomous cars are right around the bend, drivers—or perhaps more accurately—riders, and brands should probably take note. “In years past, it might have felt like a distant future technology, but this year [at CES] it felt like it’s coming—and sooner than you think,” said Wirth.
After marathon sojourns through CES 2018 this week, Raja Rajamannar, CMO of Mastercard, came away with three observations that will guide the brand’s marketing efforts in 2018 and beyond: simplicity, accelerating AI and improved cross-border communications. “Simplification is taking two routes: putting everything together in one device or making it have a single function,” said Rajamannar, who also said he sees AI as continuing it’s march to the center of the brand marketing ecosystem.
The importance of audio as a brand marketing tool will accelerate quickly as it is increasingly twinned with AI applications to enhance consumer journeys. That was the CES 2018 take away for Pandora’s newly minted CMO Aimée Lapic, who is seeing more lifestyle brands becoming integrated into consumer electronics devices than ever before.
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".
