Pace University, SundanceTV and Media Storm Announce Their First Partnership in Developing a Social Media Campaign

Pace University, SundanceTV and Media Storm Announce Their First Partnership in Developing a Social Media Campaign

NEW YORK, March 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of Pace University's Media Storm master's degree program in social media and mobile marketing, students will take part in developing an innovative social campaign for the second season of SundanceTV's "The Red Road."  This represents the first time any television network has partnered with the university's Media Storm program.  The popular returning show, which premieres April 2, 2015 at 10/9c, is a gripping dramatic thriller that stars Jason Momoa as Philip Kopus and Martin Henderson as Harold Jensen, a local sheriff hiding a dark family secret. The two are forced to coexist amongst rising tensions within their two clashing communities: a Native American tribe and a small neighboring town.  The fates of Kopus and Jensen are tied as the relationship between their communities becomes volatile.

The multi-media plan will include social media strategy, social networks, mobile apps, contests, user-generated content, blogger outreach, paid media, contests, games and experiential elements partially or fully created by Pace University students led by Professor Randi Priluck. Presentations will be submitted via video and, once reviewed by Priluck, will be sent to the Media Storm / SundanceTV teams to choose a winner.  The winners will have the opportunity to have some or all of their projects weaved within the overall social plan for "The Red Road." 

"Pace University continues to be a leader in experiential learning, and we are thrilled to see our partnership with Media Storm and SundanceTV take flight," said Neil Braun, Dean of the Lubin School of Business and former president of the NBC Network and CEO of Viacom Entertainment. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with SundanceTV and provide our students with a truly hands-on academic program."

As the only Masters Degree in Social Media and Mobile Marketing currently offered by an Accredited Business School, this program closes the gap between academia and employer needs.  "Social media and mobile technology have fundamentally transformed our culture," said Craig Woerz, founder of Media Storm. "Bringing innovative thinking to clients like SundanceTV through our collaboration with Pace University's Business School is critical in velocity disciplines like social and mobile media."

Monica Bloom, SundanceTV's SVP of Marketing, commented, "SundanceTV is constantly examining new and distinctive ways to introduce audiences to our programming. We are delighted to partner with Pace University and Media Storm on this remarkable program and are excited to collaborate with their students on creative marketing to support the second season of 'The Red Road.'"

FOXBusiness: "Erin Go Bragh! American Companies See Green in Ireland"

FOXBusiness: "Erin Go Bragh! American Companies See Green in Ireland"

. . . How does Ireland attract U.S. businesses? It’s not just the luck of the Irish. For one, the nation has some of the lowest taxes in Europe.

Ireland’s corporate tax rate of 12.5%, compared to a 21% rate in the U.K. Both countries are far below the U.S. federal rate of 35%.

“As long as you don’t bring those earnings back, you get the advantage of low taxes,” Philip Cohen, a professor of legal studies and taxation at Pace University said.

E-Commerce Times: "Samsung Offers Free Milk to All"

03/13/2015

E-Commerce Times: "Samsung Offers Free Milk to All"

. . . "Samsung cannot afford to cede content and hardware integration to Apple, and so it has to offer Milk and new content services like it," said Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University.

Should they become ubiquitous, Samsung "will likely find additional ways to monetize the user base and, at a minimum, cross-promote its products and services," Chiagouris told the E-Commerce Times.

There is a risk of failure, but "that's small in comparison to allowing Apple to own the content/hardware integration story," he said.

San Jose Mercury News: "Silicon Valley aims for toddler tech"

. . . Parental acceptance invites more children to freely swipe tablet and phone screens in search of shows and games, making the mobile Internet as indispensable for families as television sets once were, said Paul Kurnit, professor of marketing at Pace University and CEO of consulting firm KidShop.

"Kids are a huge market," Kurnit said. "They are the digital natives -- they take to digital devices like fish to water."

They are also one of the last groups not yet captured by the tech industry's ongoing quest to build a bigger global audience, he said.
