What exemplifies the Internet community better than live tweeting? Consider live tweeting the online alternative to swarms of World Cup fans wildly cheering on their favorite team at a local bar. Except in the aforementioned case, only those in the immediate vicinity can participate. Instead, live tweeting literally brings a world of like-minded individuals together under one, or several, designated hashtags. The Super Bowl, Academy Awards, True Blood series finale… it doesn’t matter what the event. Any buzzworthy thing that happens can be live tweeted, and by any kind of person (buzzworthy or otherwise). We get it -- live tweeting seems overwhelming. There is an array of opportunities to do so, endless pages of content from an endless number of users, split second decisions to be made and memory muscles to strengthen. But if we can do it, you can do it! Just recently we here at CRC garnered over 1,500 Facebook likes in one week for The Survivor Collection by live tweeting its launch at The National Women’s Survivors Convention in Nashville. So in preparation for the upcoming VMAs, we’ve compiled a short list of tips to help you live the live tweeting life.

Why leave the comfy confines of your home when you can create a successful career from your couch? More and more Americans are getting excited about the at-home business trend, involving themselves on both the seller and consumer sides. According to research from Harris Poll, commissioned by Direct Selling News, more than 156 million people have made a purchase from a direct seller – that’s two thirds of the U.S. adult population. And 81 million have done so within the past six months alone. Never has making and spending money been so convenient.
Seeing (and Shopping) Social These days we’re living social and doing it quickly and efficiently. CRC’s millennial minds are pros at processing information and making fast decisions – whether taking it from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine….the list goes on and on. We know what’s hot now, why it’s trending as well as who else thinks it’s hot and where to get it.
We like to think we know the media pretty well at CRC. There are certain magazines and websites that have always been looked at as the harbingers of what’s cool, what’s in and what’s next. We were shocked and saddened to learn not only of the closing of two of our favorite fashion/beauty websites, but also of one of the most renowned and long-standing voices in women’s service books – Ladies’ Home Journal.
In early 2014, CRC was charged with launching the new bodykey by Nutrilite products to the press during Super Bowl week, including their new shake flavors. Although Nutrilite was excited about the prospect of editorial placements, the brand was especially interested in fostering meaningful media relationships with target editors. CRC had to find a way to cut through the clutter of Super Bowl week events and fill the room with the right editors.
