How Fyre Fest Used Social Media to Fake Rich People Out For Epic Fail

Fyre Festival outhouseLast week’s much-hyped Fyre Festival, a musical excursion on a, “private island once owned by Pablo Escobar,” fell apart faster than a drunk sailor on a dilapidated dock in a hurricane.

But for many of us who have experience working in the music festival space, we saw this coming a mile away. For proof, check out the RS Article: Fyre Festival Disaster: Industry Vets Weigh in.

The amount of bullshit hype was probably the first clue that Fyre Festival was not all it was chalked up to be.

It’s also a good example of what Deep Creatives stays away from in terms of clients and projects. At the heart of great marketing and design is authenticity and this festival had none.

The over-hyped festival paid a handful of “social media models,” including Kendall Jenner upwards of $250,000 to create sizzle videos, buzz, and pictures for social media. Let’s stop here, and take a look at one of the official sizzle promos:

 

Here’s how the promoters put their festival into words:

Two unforgettable weekends of mystery and music, Fyre Festival is for those with uncompromising taste and a burning desire for adventure.

Set against the surreal island backdrop of the Exumas where ordinary rules don’t apply, Fyre ignites the best in music, cuisine, innovation and hospitality.

A closer look at the promos and the veneer begins to peel off. Instagram models were paid to sell a product that simply never existed. And to the legally trained eye, none of the models disclosed on their Snapchat, Insta, Twitter or Facebook posts that they were paid. Several class action lawsuits have already been filed alleging negligence, fraud, and misrepresentation. One lawsuit is claiming $100 million dollars in damages.

Fyre Festival tickets started at four grand a pop, twelve grand for VIP tickets, and reports of ultra-VIP tickets topped out at $250,000 circulated. So when the advertised “gourmet food,” ended up being soda, chips and cheese sandwiches, let’s just say it was a harbinger of things to come.  If the uber rich thought that that was a raw deal, they went from the frying pan into the fire; disaster relief tents instead of beach villas, leaking roofs (it rained), feral dogs roaming the beaches, no running water, massive housing shortages, and um – oh yeah, a cancelled show with thousands of rich kids wandering around with no idea what was really going on. To add insult to injury, the event’s disclaimer states that tickets are non-refundable.

The moral of the story? Make authenticity a core value of all your marketing projects. Be organic with your ideas, connections, and affiliations. Save the hype for your fishing stories. But before I sign off – here’s one of the “famous,” Instagram models talking about the fun she had at Fyre Festival.

Video Lab West, Sacramento Train Station

McClatchy Teams With Google, Opens Video Lab West inside Historic Train Depot

Video Lab West, Sacramento Train Station McClatchy unveiled its new collaborative space inside the historic train depot to a packed house of several hundred of Sacramento’s “who’s who,” from private and public sector spaces.

A long-time anchor in Sacramento’s downtown region, the Amtrak train station has been undergoing a 10-year revival. It is also home to the largest in-fill project in the United States.

McClatchy’s partnership with Google and Youtube is called Video Lab West. The 10,000 square foot development is designed to foster an environment committed to great storytelling using video. Emerging video technologies such as VR (virtual reality )and aerial drone videography are two areas the project is expected to push.

It’s an important part of storytelling that’s going to be big, but it’s also undefined and unclear from a revenue model and distribution standpoint, said Meghan Sims, McClatchy’s director of video products, who will be leading the lab.

The lab’s designers paid homage to the building’s rich and uniquely California history with roots dating back to 1863. The creative energy in the “history vs. high-tech,” environment is definitely promising.

McClatchy says that they intend to offer room for workshops, training and focus on working with fellows from outside the company.

Greg Taylor, the city project manager, said that the work has turned the once dilapidated and marginally usable old brick building into a modern structure. The entire project entails 25,000 square feet of office, restaurant and retail space just a hop away from the new arena and of course, Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor lines.

The rooftop terrace offers panoramic views and is sure to become one of the best places to decompress, recompress, network and socialize. Doors are expected to open late summer, 2017.

Google Winter Wonderlab

How I expanded my business from Sacramento to San Francisco

Nutshell ver 3.0: 3 years in 60 seconds

Che and Sergey Brin at Wanderlust Tahoe

DC founder CT and Google co-founder Sergey Brin in Tahoe.

A week before Halloween in 2013, I found myself flying to Las Vegas courtesy of Google. A few weeks later I was helping Google test the waters in retail space at Google’s Snowglobe. When the party was over and the Google gig began fading away in my rear view mirror, I headed up to Lake Tahoe where I ran into Google co-founder, Sergey Brin. We had a brief and inspired engagement about international food and where he could find some. This auspicious event triggered me to get back on the Google train, which I did and promptly.

Today, I’m preparing to take my Google game to Oakland and San Francisco to meet with some major players in the 501(c)3 space. That may sound mundane, but trust me – it’s anything but routine.

Google Explores Retail

In 2013, Google took a serious pitch at entering the retail game, albeit late when compared to their rival, Apple. Sure, they had endcaps at Best Buy, but this pitch would be much stronger than setting shop up under somebody else’s tent.  Enter Google’s pop-up shop, aka Snowglobe. This effort required some 200+ trained Google Specialist to keep the shops running smoothly across the country from New York to Los Angeles.

As the week-long training came to a close, the prospect of failing the final exam was nerve-racking. Had I come this far only to fail and be left behind by one of the world’s most successful companies in tech? Hell no. I passed with a relatively low score of 97%, but it worked for me.

On my flight home, I thought about all the endless possibilities before me. Could I land a gig at Googelplex? How would I handle the commute from Sacramento? Were there other ways to get on but stay in Sacramento? Could I be a Google marketing manager at Best Buy? Did I really want to work at Best Buy? Who did I know at Google? All that I knew for sure is that this was just the beginning of a long-term relationship and I was betting big all on Google.

As I wrapped up my last shift on Christmas Eve, I felt triumphant but also knew that I had to figure out how to continue working with Google. As luck would have it, three months later, Google launched a program called “Google Partners.” I jumped in hook, line, and sinker. This was exactly what I needed to keep my Google “juice,” fresh and not allow my recent experience to fade to black.

Getting Googley

Vince Vaughn never gave up, we don't either.

Vince Vaughn never gave up, we won’t either.

Google Partners are tested and certified by Google as competent ad specialists, (AdWords).  Their ad system is fairly complex and requires serious studying and hands-on use before becoming an adept user. By 2016, I was managing Google Ad campaigns for the Sacramento Public Library, the Sacramento Zoo, The Crocker Art Museum, The California Nurse Practitioner’s Association, The Sacramento Philharmonic and others.

As 2016 came to a close, I began working more and more with nonprofits. My job evolved to help them leverage Google For Nonprofits and Google Grants, both of which are well suited for management by Google Partners.

 

The Takeaway

After three years and three months of working on Google stuff, the upshot is that it’s super critical to know your stuff better than the next person. After that, keep your professional relationships alive with regular communication. Lastly, realize innovative ways to apply what you’ve learned and carve out a new niche market if you can.

Know your stuff better than the next person. Communicate regularly with your network. Carve out a niche market.

Within 24 hours, I will be expanding my services into Oakland and San Francisco’s financial district. The players at the table have budgets beyond my wildest imagination. I’m not trying to get rich here, I’m trying to make a living and provide nonprofits with value added services that put money and results back in their pockets.

I like to tell clients that my goal is to help them realize a 10-to-1 return on investemt. For every dollar they spend with me, they get ten back.

As an aside, I was approached by Wanderlust management after I was spotted walking around with Sergey. They asked me if I knew how to get in touch with Google so they could present a proposal. Yes, I answered and dug into my digital Rolodex. I shot off some emails and made a few phone calls to Googlers I knew. Long story short, Google ended up being on-site the next year with Google Play Music. Below is the video they produced from this experience. My job often feels like a connector or people and ideas which often leaves me outside looking in. Lucky for me, I’ve got a memory like an elephant. Even better, I’ve finally developed a niche service for a huge market and I barely have to leave home to meet with my new clients, and besides all that – I love San Francisco and Oakland.

Google Grants Sacramento

How-To Guide To Google For Nonprofits

According to Google, the tech giant has given $100,000,000 annually to nonprofits around the world in investments and grants every year since 2014. As a Google Partner, a big part of what I do at DC is to help nonprofits process their grant applications, setup their new AdWords accounts, install Google Analytics on their websites so I can analyze what’s working, what’s not and how to maximize clients’ advertising efforts with Google.

Organizations need more insights, not more data

Here is the outline of the process a 501(c)3 will experience when engaging the Google Grant process.

APPLY

The application process is a straightforward process. In late 2016, Google brought San Francisco nonprofit specialist, TechSoup aboard to review applications to the Google Grant system. Although the exra layer of security is more than what was required previously, it’s still a fairly simple action and should take no longer than 15 to 20 minutes to process. Click here to get started: https://www.google.com/grants/.

INSTALL ANALYTICS

Google Analytics is a very powerful application that users install on their website. If you’re using WordPress, there are some great plugin’s to make this process super simple. Here’s a full list of Google Analytics plugins for WordPress sites: https://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=google+analytics.

This application will help you understand who is visiting your site, how they found the site, what keywords are being used and how frequently, when users visit, how long they stayed, what they clicked, and even more complex data depending on how diligently your webmaster or Google Partner setup your analytics system.

What Google Analytics does

  • Provide data on bounce-rates. If a lot of visitors to your site leave after visiting only one page, that’s going to be reflected in your analytics as bounce-rate. Poorly designed site with little relevant content are the most common cause of high bounce rates.
  • Helps webmasters identify new markets by providing detailed data on demographics.
  • Understand users’ behavior, (flow), with a graphical display. The more you understand what your users are doing on your site, the better you can arrange and create content and calls-to-action to heighten those actions.
  • Provide key data on trends. A good Google Partner can look at your site’s analytics and provide keen insights to trends. From day-to-day, week-to-week, and month-to-month, it’s critical to see the big picture and make adjustments to enhance your site’s engagement with users.
  • Identify traffic sources. One of the easiest and most useful metrics to understand with Google Analytics is traffic source. Whether it’s Facebook, or Twitter, organic or paid search – traffic sources is easily one of the most useful data sets that you should monitor carefully.

WRITE GREAT AD COPY and then some

Once you’ve been accepted into the Google Grant system, your organization is ready to run ads, for free. Sounds pretty simple, but this is probably the most critical part of your investment into this program. Even a well-written ad will fail miserably if you have not taken the time to do some homework. Here’s a checklist to ensure that your ads will be seen, even in a competitive market where some companies may be spending upwards of $10 per click (CPC); Google Grants limits your ad budget to $2 CPC, but not to worry. A savvy Google Partner or webmaster with Google AdWords experience can help you overcome this seemingly insurmountable hurdle.

  • Money is not the key to a great ad rank with Google.
  • Google ranks ads based on the ad content AND the page on your website that it links to.
  • Do not link ads to your homepage, unless the homepage has a call-to-action directly related to the ad.
  • Create custom pages that resonate well with the content of your new ad.
  • Create unique campaigns and test variations of ads with different keywords and negative keywords.
  • Do not max out your bid (CPC) from the get-go, start small and increase your bid incrementally over a short period of time.
  • Review your Google Analytics report every morning, at the least.

A nice and short presentation that puts all of the above into a perspective you can digest, easily.

Advertising Burning Man Style

Burning Man Videos and Fiya

Original post: September 6, 2016
Edited: September 19, 2016

Burning Man is arguably the most fantastic display of human ingenuity and art and architecture and music and high vibes. Over the years, many inspired videos have emerged and 2016 was no exception. DC’s mashup includes a remix of a 2015 live dj morning set at the Pink Mammoth party.



“Sunrise at Burning Man,” is a mashup featuring moments from Burning Man 2015-2016. It was published on Youtube on August 31, 2016. It was simultaneously published on Facebook as a native video, (embedded), under the title, “BM Playa Temple Love mashup-remix 2016.” As of September 6, 8:20 a.m. PDT – 7,502 views have been clocked on Youtube. Credits to

The Christina, burning boat on the playa in Black Rock City, Nevada.

Burning Man proves timing is everything in digital marketing.

Imagine my surprise today when YouTube reflected more than 7,000 views.  Am I cheating with smart hashtags or backlinks or simply asking friends to like and share? No. My “cheat,” was in the timing. Sounds like something I read in Sun Tzu’s, “The Art of War.”

The days when brands could buy their way into markets are behind us. The paramount key to great marketing today is no longer shrink-wrapped, slick or glossy. Nay. Those qualities will kill your brand fast as a millennial can swipe left on a beat troll on Tinder.

Virtually all adults and most teens are armed with oceans of real-time info about anything because Google. It’s best not to risk your company and brand’s digital rep by veering off the course set by authenticity. Successful brands keep their messages authentic and time their launch dates.

Three mantras of authentic marketing

  • organic relationships, (not paid)
  • legit shit, (really good product(s))
  • culture as a brand

 

Keep Calm and Keep it Stupid sign

Rule #1, KISS.

Brands cannot buy this stuff. They try, but reputation and authenticity are not items a brand can simply purchase. They can only build it from and with some metaphorical and real sweat equity. Much of the time, that’s all a small boutique agency has.

 

Agencies continue to bamboozle their clients into spending more money on storytelling, even if the story isn’t completely true. Doubt this? You spent about $700 on your last smart-phone. So tell me, what’s your phone’s story? Crickets, I hear crickets.

The answer to succeeding in brand building, marketing, advertising and ultimately sales and brand loyalty is genuine, old-fashioned, authenticity and nothing communicates that like video.

 

Hello Story-Doing

Broadcasting stories is falling flat on all mediums. What to do? How are you gonna get your story out there and heard, and acted upon? Try shining a bright light and speak to the medium of people. In other words, give the people what they want.

Hello Video

Video is the premier channel that all great marketing campaigns seek to leverage.  Smart  phones have become the great equalizer, putting the power of video into the hands of “everyday people.” Apple’s story-doing campaign, “Shot on iPhone,” is captivating audiences with aspirations that maybe they can “GoPro,” to steal a mantra from another camera brand.

It’s an elegantly simply call-to-action: buy an iPhone, make great videos. Will that translate to clicks and shares and brand building? Maybe, maybe not. What I discovered is elegantly genius, in our pursuit of making videos “work.”



Case Study

DeepCreatives has been developing a brand in Lake Tahoe called Tahoelove. The brand is a conglomerate of sorts, blending information about the stuff that makes Tahoe magical: mountain bike trails, outdoor festivals, concerts, skiing info, apres ski, fun vibes and of course the very lake itself. With a mere 350 likes on Faecbook as of this posting, it’s not exactly registering on anybody’s social media richter scale. But this fact goes to show the sheer power of doing video right. If I’ve got 300 odd likes on a FB page, how is it generating thousands of impressions? That’s right, sharing and liking. And that’s not easy to buy, but when it’s organic, i.e., word of mouth, well, it’s hard to stop.

Timing is Everything

Last week, as friends began showing up at Black Rock City, aka the Burning Man locale, large and small media outlets began teasing “stories,” about the greatest show on earth. They were all boring. An epiphany hit me. Make a mashup video for Burning Man. Tag it properly. Describe it well. Publish the shit out of it, and share it.

These guys don’t know jack about BM. They’re not burners, they’re reporters.

I threw all the “ingredients,” unto my proverbial cutting block where I edited and pieced together my final cut. At the same time, I listened to white label mashups on Soundcloud from Burning Man 2015 waiting for the perfect song. Half a day later, I finished the final cut and loaded the edit on Tahoelove’s FB page, and simultaneously on my Youtube Channel.

The first 24 hours racked up 700 views. Good. A week went by, 9,000 views on both channels. Wow. In the end, I’ve built up some brand indentity, some new Likes and subscribers on two of the biggest social channels on the web. This will go a long way, soon, as I prepare to launch a product line for Tahoelove. You can bet poles to skis, I’ll be running video for that launch.

 

Burning man accidental fire turns into epic photo shot.

Adam Pollina’s set burns accidentally.

Photo by @peterruprecht

The flames are not supposed to be there. This blazing set was created for an epic playa performance that was to be documented with photographs. Designer Adam Pollina worked for six months on it, handmaking everything in Bali, and every detail of the production was carefully planned. And yet, before the show began, the set and all the props caught on fire (no one knew why). At the last minute, photographer Peter Ruprecht yelled to the whole cast and crew to move to the upwind side of the fire and get at least one shot. “The photo is, to me, proof positive of perseverance through disaster…,” Ruprecht says. “IT BECAME ONE OF MY FAVORITE photos ever.” | #burningman #blackrockcity #brc

“It always rains on tents. Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent.” – Dave Barry

Eastern Sierra Nevada One of the best ways one can hit the proverbial reset button is to get out into the great outdoors, and Northern California full of great getaways from the beach to the mountains.

Breathing in fresh high sierra air scented with hints of sage, the howls of a lone coyote, the gentle rumble of a nearby stream. These things have a way of peeling away the stress of city life.

Here at DC, we love getting out and to help assist with this effort, we thought it high time to finally make a map dedicated to camping.  Our new “NorCal Campsites” map was inspired to identify campsites near the best trout waters in the Sierra Nevada, but  we figured – why stop there? And so we did not.

As of the publishing date, August 10, 2016, our map is about half complete with more spots to be found around the Mendocino National Forest area and Monterey/Santa Cruz regions.

The icons represent full-hookups, partial hookups or straight dry camping. If you don’t know what those words mean, take a guess and you’re probably right. But just in case, here’s our legend to help. Prices vary from free to $70 with most public lands charging around $20 a night. The key here is that you really do get what you pay for, but maybe you don’t want wifi, a swimming pool or electricity. Heck, odds are that the reason you’re going camping is to get away from those things, anyways.

A lot of work went into this map, so we thought it a shame not to share. Happy camping, or glamping as the case may be!

A short diddy from one of DC’s favorite areas to fish, hike and camp.

Organic Google SEO Best Practices

You’ve got a website but it’s not ranking well on Google? This article is for you.

Google's SEO best practices for 2016

SEO by DC

Organic Search Engine Optimization is not tricky. Here’s a good definition from Wikipedia:

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a web search engine‘s unpaid results — often referred to as “natural,” “organic,” or “earned” results.

No SEO tricks – that’ll get your site penalized

Years ago, Google began installing software within their engines to filter websites they caught using “tricks and hacks.” Long gone are the days of “stuffing keywords,” or buying backlinks – to name a few “tricks.” Today, if you want your site to do well in organic search, you have to know the rules, follow them and then some. So, what are the rules?

The core SEO tactics you need to integrate into your site include producing original and relevant content, proper formatting and using natural language. Here are the main points Google shares in their publication – “Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide.”

Create unique, accurate page titles

Title tags let users and search engines know what the key topic of a web page is. As you can see, the title of this page is: “Organic Search Engine Optimization: SEO.” Notice that it matches the content.

Tags should be placed within the <head> tag of the HTML document. Create unique titles for all your pages. Pages that appear in search results will show the contents of the title tag. Words in the title are bold if they appear in the user’s search query. This will assist users recognize if the page is relevant to their search.

Using the “description” meta tag

The description meta tag provides Google, and other search engines, a snippet of the page’s content.  While a PAGE TITLE is limited to a few words, or short phrase, a page’s description meta tag should be a sentence or two, or even paragraph. Words in the snippet are boldewhen they appear in the user’s query. This gives the user clues about whether the content on the page matches with what he or she is looking for.

Use simple/clean URLs

Most web content management systems, including WordPress, automatically create page URLs that are frankly, gobbledygook. The good news is that most of them also provide an easy switch to turn “Greek,” into plain English. Using descriptive categories and filenames for your pages, posts, images and documents on your website; it not only helps you keep your site organized, but may lead to better crawling of your content by search engines. Visitors may also be put off by long and cryptic URLs and you can bet they won’t share that link if they won’t even click it.

The URL to any page, post or document shows in the search result in Google. If the words in the URL on a search result were used by the user, then they also appear in bold on Google’s search result(s), really helping boost the chance a user will click your link – see why it’s critical to produce great content? More info from the horses mouth is available here: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/76329

Make your site easier to navigate (Menus, Sitemaps and Breadcrumbs)

Your website’s navigation is like the table of contents of a book and even Google admits that they use a site’s navigation (sitemap), to put all the pieces together to help make sense of the big picture. In the last few years, breadcrumbs have become very popular. If you’re using WordPress, the option to install breadcrumbs is easily available to you.

A breadcrumb is a row of internal links at the top or bottom of the page that allows visitors to quickly navigate back to a previous section or the root page (1). Many breadcrumbs have the most general page (usually the root page) as the first, left-most link and list the more specific sections out to the right. ~ Google’s SEO stuff.

A site map is a page on your website that shows the structure of your website. Basically, it’s a hierarchical list of the pages on your site. Visitors can use this page when they can’t otherwise find content on your site they are looking for. Google will visit this page but they say, it’s mostly for users’ benefit, and we know we use them a lot around DC on big sites. They do come in handy.

Publish quality content

Content has always been king on the web, so it should come as no surprise that Google embraces this and has even gone on record stating that this is likely the most influential element of your website for great organic ranking on search.

Users know good content when they see it and will likely want to direct other users to it. This could be through blog posts, social media services, email, forums, or other means. Organic or word-of-mouth buzz is what helps build your site’s reputation with both users and Google, and it rarely comes without quality content. – Google.

Keys to good and basic search engine optimization

  • Write in plain English, unless you’re targeting a technical demographic
  • Keep your content organized, avoid “run-on pages.”
  • Create original content, copying will kill your SEO
  • Optimize your images: size, alt-text and descriptions all are used by Google
  • Use headings to help readers know what the topic(s) are about
  • Do not duplicate content – copy-and-paste from other sites

CT has been a Google SEO Specialist since 2006 and has managed several sites that generated millions of hits, annually in the Sacramento region. If you desire assistance in this field, please contact us.

Founder of DC wins 1st Place at Palace of Fine Arts: Teton Gravity Social Media Contest

Big Mountain Movie Further with Famous Truckee Mountaineer, Jeremy Jones

Deep Creative’s founder, CT, took first place in a social media contest by delivering the most paid attendees at a movie premier in San Francisco’s, Palace of Fine Arts.

(TGR), had completed post-production for their latest trilogy and big mountain snowboard movie – Further. Instead of dropping wads of cash on advertising, they did something unique for the time; they held a simple contest using Facebook and Twitter. The contestant delivering the most paid attendees won.

This unique opportunity to go head-to-head with San Francisco’s best and brightest was met with some trepidation, after all, this entire event and contest was held at ground zero of the digital revolution and marketing capitol of the world. But when the first week’s results were published, DC’s founder had inched out the top spot by several tickets. Week two came and it was all hands on deck;  DC pulled out all the stops, nabbed 1st place and kicked off an epic winter in Tahoe because of it.

Teton Gravity Research is one of the world’s most respected brands in action sports media with roots deeply planted in the ski/ride and surf spaces.

Founded in 1996 by two brothers in Wyoming, hence the name, TGR produces films with environmental messages, yet it also produces advertising for a wide range of manufacturers. The company is a key partner to organizations such as the Surfrider Foundation, Protect Our Winters, and 1% For The Planet.

Shooting great photos is not really art, it’s science. Sure there is an artistic element to it all – but at the end of the day, it’s still pushing a button at a given moment in time, with some settings. But it ain’t art. That being said, here are our top 10o shots from 2004 thru April 2016. It was tough – but somebody had to do it.
