Telemedicine

Almost a hundred years ago an inventor by the name of Hugo Gernshbacher envisioned a device that would phase out risky visits to the doctor’s office. He imagined your doctor would sit in front of a bubble-shaped monitor through which he could perform your physical using a pair of thin, elongated metal sticks (stemming from your end) that your doctor would augment using a matching set in their office. He called the system a teledactyl, and though it sounds like your niece trying to tell you her favorite dinosaur, it represents the health community’s historically lasting desire to diagnose and

Current Social Media Recommendation for Brands

There is a lot of anxiety, confusion, and stress around the current pandemic, the Coronavirus, now commonly referred to as COVID-19. For social media, it’s a tightrope walk between respectful acknowledgement of the current environment and the need to run a business and continuing to operate through its duration. Social media users are hypersensitive right now given that many brands are over-promoting and others are just trying to get through the crisis.

When you were a kid, chances are you thought about growing up to be a doctor at some point. As a doctor, you get to help your patients (your favorite stuffed animals) feel better, you get to use cool tools, and you rattle off your name with “doctor” added before it and feel exceptionally awesome. Then you grow up, and you realize it’s hard work to become a doctor — lots of school and hours of keeping up with certifications, patient records, regulations and more.

Why Every Business Should Be Using Content Marketing

Back in the day, every town had a hardware store, a grocery store, a barber shop, and any other vendor you could ever need. Each of these establishments was run by someone who had likely grown up either in that town or nearby and was part of a multi-generational family who had called your town or area home for decades. These owners and managers were valued resources in their community, due to their community ties, personal attention to customers, and endless supply of knowledge about what their establishment offered. Now, we live in an age of big-box chains and a

A Tale of Two Logos

Identifying marks, logos, and icons are all crucial elements to a brand’s identity. They are the main image that separates the brand from any other organization, and because of this, it is important that they are protected. It’s also crucial that a brand has a unified voice across all of its platforms. Rich Energy, an energy-drink brand and former Haas Formula One sponsor, has been learning this the hard way over the last two months. One trademark dispute popped the top on a whole other world of issues. Rich Energy (founded 2015) entered into a lawsuit in May with Whyte
