Multicult Classics Interviews Tinny Titanium

Multicult Classics Interviews Tinny Titanium | LGBT Online Media, Marketing and Advertising | Scoop.it

Titanium Worldwide catered to the LGBT community first; now, it’s after Atlanta residents for the automaker.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

It’s not often that a football team gets to play their first game in a new stadium as reigning world champions. But with their appearance in the Super Bowl this Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons could be exactly that when they christen Mercedes-Benz Stadium next season. This stroke of luck wasn’t part of Mercedes-Benz USA’s original plan to win over Atlanta residents, but for VP of Marketing Drew Slaven, it doesn’t hurt the brand’s chances in a town where the automaker is planting some serious roots.

Kinkster Brands NYC, New Gay Owned Company Established in New York City

Kinkster Brands NYC, New Gay Owned Company Established in New York City | LGBT Online Media, Marketing and Advertising | Scoop.it

With its launch of Kinkster MAG in fall 2015 followed by its apparel and merchandise branded as Kinkster NYC shortly after the publication, the seeds were sown for the formal establishment of Kinkster Brands NYC in fall 2016.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

Founder Corey Wesley and co-owner John S. Myers launched Kinkster MAG in fall 2015 in part because they never felt like they were a part of a single community but rather they existed within many communities. The stereotypical images prominent in traditional gay media outlets offered little for them to connect with and led them to believe there was a specific norm within the LGBT community. As they came of age, met others, and experienced different people and environments, they learned that like most groups and subgroups what's considered "normal" is far more complicated and nuanced than what media and society had them believing.

Why does the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) rarely ascend to the top job at their organization?

Listen and or watch the interview and see if you agree.
