The Dallas-based retailer credited a new "digital first" strategy and investments in new technology and marketing tools. Neiman Marcus spent much of last year and early this year installing and fixing new technology that held its performance back for several months.CEO Karen Katz said that once the kinks and issues were resolved with sales would improve.
New indie beauty brands driven by bloggers and Instagram stars are fueling major gains in the $80 billion a year cosmetics business, and it's forcing traditional department stores like Neiman Marcus to take notice. The Dallas-based luxury retailer just added 45 beauty brands with more than 650 products online in a new space at its NorthPark Center in Dallas. (Look for the "new, now, next" written in red neon.) And to do it, it turned to its millennials on staff, its own inside focus group.
Apparently not as many people are remembering the Alamo. The Waco Tribune reported over the weekend that the Magnolia Market at the Silos is poised to beat the famous battle site in number of visitors this year. The downtown Waco retail destination developed by HGTV Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines is expected to hit 1.6 million visitors this year, which is a couple hundred thousand more than the Alamo Mission is expecting.
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".
