Stepping into the Shark Tank are two entrepreneurs. These two believe that they have created a new generation of nutritional supplements. Meet Will, from sunny San Diego, and Ron, from beautiful Santa Barbara. The two are Ora Organic, and they are seeking an investment of $375,000 in exchange for 5% in their company. Will steps behind a screen to pull out a comically-sized pill. Have the Sharks ever thought about how their supplements are made, like the actual stuff in the capsule?
Brandon, Steven, and Bruno are the owners of Sand Cloud. They love the beach and used to go to the beach all the time after the work. One of those days, they woke up from a nap on the beach and found themselves super uncomfortable. However, they had the idea of putting a pillow inside of a beach towel. That’s when they first came up with their million dollars, The Pillow Towel. They created the product and tried selling it on the beach, but realized it was a total fail – nobody wanted it.
Meet Richard Elden, from Manhattan Beach, California. He was born and raised in London and lived there up until his parents’ divorce when he was nine years old. His mother decided to move the family to California to seek a better life. America is truly the land of opportunity – if you have the passion and don’t take no for an answer, this is the place to be in. Richard’s big break came when California decided to pass legislation to ban plastic bags.
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".
