"You're right Dave, but I think at the individual unit level, you have to also think in terms of they 1) don't have time to do what you are asking of them and 2) given the time, many times might screw it up. I think the effort is a team…"

"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: 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.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
