"Great stuff Chris... Easy to read and to the point.  The biggest frustration we have in providing social media services is that 1) the client thinks that social media is the golden egg and 2) therefore expects us to provide great content that…"

"#1 on your DON'T list is a biggie. Just because you are automating the processes doesn't mean you can forget to engage with your followers. Hence the term SOCIAL media."

"Scheduled" and "Automated" are actually NOT bad words when it comes to restaurant marketing

Okay. I can feel it coming already. What I am referring to is my subscribers (and also my "slowly growing on me", group of trolls) desire to automatically comment on this post, simply based on the title. BUT, before you do, I ask you kindly to just read the entire post and then make your opinions be known, in black, white and read all over the internet. Sound fair? Okay, let's go! FACT:…See More

About Status 5 Studio, Inc.

We are a very diverse team. Bringing a unique spin and skill set to the equation, our team, though diverse shares a few common factors: We share an insane work ethic, we eat, sleep, and breathe marketing and branding, and we practice what we preach, developing our own brands in the Status 5 Studio Brand Incubator®.

Taking into consideration that every project is different, our process is to evaluate each project individually and then build a team around it. Dubbed by some as “The Hollywood” model, this work process allows us to hire what we need, when it is needed, and shrink what we don’t need, when it’s no longer necessary.

Our principals have years of experience in Design, Branding, Identity and end-to-end Marketing Solutions. We represent sole proprietors and multi-billion dollar corporations.

Market Your Restaurant With A Rifle and NOT A Shotgun.

Posted on April 23, 2012 at 8:30am 2 Comments

Every week, restaurants come to us to discuss having us take over their marketing initiatives. When they do so, this is a two way interview. Obviously the restaurant wants to see what we are all about, and if we are suitable for their needs. We however also want to interview the restaurant, learn about them, what they have been doing with their marketing, where they…

You've Got Them Talking......Now What?

Posted on April 16, 2012 at 9:00am 0 Comments

If you are anything like me, you like to dig into things. The more I look into, the more I learn. The more I learn, the better job my firm can do for our restaurant partners.



One thing I always find curious when I'm digging around the internet, is when I see a restaurant's social media property, where they have a fairly large group of fans or followers.…

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
