Brand recognition requires social media marketing in today’s age

GREENWICH, CT, USA, August 20, 2019 / — Fotis Georgiadis, owner of the blog by his namesake, is a branding and image consultant specialist with a robust background and is a visionary interviewer. With a knack for pulling out a well rounded interview, not only covering cutting edge technologies and corporate directions, but also bringing out the personal side of the interviewee.

Branding requires multiple avenues of exposure to bring the name to the masses. Social media provides a vast range of exposure when done right, something Fotis Georgiadis specializes in. As a result, he has recently received exposure on and Linked here:

Getting right down to it, Fotis Georgiadis delves into the interview with Olivia Alexander, founder of Kush Queen, finding out what brought her to the cannabis industry:

Thank you so much for doing this with us! Can you share with us the story about what brought you to this specific career path?

When I was in college, I began using cannabis recreationally. Safe usage wasn’t shunned in my family, but supported, so I began learning everything I could about the flower. Shortly thereafter, I took a job as a budtender at a friend’s dispensary and loved it. I knew then cannabis was my destiny.

Before Kush Queen, I owned a company called The Crystal Cult, which made Swarovski Crystal vape pens. I started the brand with only $700 on Instagram. Within months, we had tens of thousands of followers and a healthy business. I designed a vape for dry flower/wax concentrates called “Kush Queen”. It quickly became our number one selling product. So many people would call the Cult and ask to buy cannabis from us. I realized that women really didn’t have much speaking to them in cannabis or a brand they could belong to. I then spent a few years working for other cannabis companies, mainly doing social media and digital strategy. When you go behind the scenes, you realize the issues with the products, the issues with customers, and overall I just felt like I could make better products. It took some time, because everything was self-funded, but overtime we created and formulated our products, starting with the bath bombs. The complete interview can be seen on GreenEntrepreneur.

The cannabis industry continues to grow at an amazing rate, offering many opportunities for women to take the lead business development, formation and more. Along this same topic, Fotis Georgiadis has been interviewing a number of women leaders in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The president and founder of Par Avion, Ltd, Janine K. Iannarelli, recently sat down for an interview with Fotis Georgiadis to discuss this growing industry of women in STEM. Not only is branding about putting a name out there, it is also about putting the story and people behind it in the spotlight as can be seen in this part of the interview:

Thank you so much for doing this with us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

Most people who choose unusual career paths will tell you they stood at a crossroads, though it may at the time have been unbeknownst to them. How I ended up building a career in aircraft sales was borne more out of my sense of adventure and an attempt to be unique without being perceived as “odd.”

I knew from early on that going to work for a large corporation where you are a number and the chance for advancement may be limited to how well you respond to a test versus demonstrable added value, was never going to work for me. I quickly realized that any action you take in a small company has a direct impact on the bottom line and the ability not only for you, but the company to succeed.

My first job as a researcher specializing in identifying trends in the business aircraft resale marketplace made that abundantly clear to me. That sense of making a real contribution that was almost immediately measurable was very empowering. After about nine months of working for the company, mostly from my desk, I was promoted to a sales position and was tasked with actually going on the road to secure new clients. Fresh out of college, with no training program on how to do this, I was given license to write the playbook on business development. Wow! That was not a daunting task to me and rather had the opposite effect. After two successful visits to prospective clients I felt invincible and realized I had found my calling. – The full interview is available here.

Looking back at both articles, we see how Fotis Georgiadis brings the success of these individuals and their brands to the masses in a way that pulls the reader in, wanting to find out more about the interviewees. Creating staying power for a reader of an interview allows time for the brand to 'sink in' and entices them to explore the company and more.

Major under-served traveler interests targeted

One big thing is that hospitality companies will need to allow full flexibility to their guests to cancel, change and move to other places.”

— Rafael Museri, Creator and CEO of Selina

GREENWICH, CT, USA, August 20, 2019 / — Candice Georgiadis, owner of the blog by her namesake, interviews individuals on the cutting edge of hotel, travel, lifestyle and other similar topics. She expands the marketing foot print of companies with a combination of branding and imaging across social media and conventional websites.

Traveling the world continues to be one of life’s many great adventures. Each journey has its own merits, drawbacks and memories to bring home. What if the drawbacks could be minimized and the memories better? That’s what Candice Georgiadis finds out in 2 recent interviews. She is helping shape the travel industry by building brand name recognition for companies and people.

In a recent interview with Ryland King, Founder & CEO of Surf Trip List, Candice Georgiadis discusses the ‘roller-coaster’ ride that brought about Surf Trip List, one of the companies helping form the new travel industry for 2020 and beyond.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? Can you share a story about that?

In college, I founded an environmental education non-profit that grew incredibly fast. In five years it went from just an idea in my head to managing over 200+ college student volunteers in five cities throughout California.

I worked insane hours for years. So much so that my I was gifted office supplies by my parents on my 23rd birthday. A few months after that I hit burnout and had a massive breakdown.

I went through counseling, got my degree (which I had written off) and realigned my life. I wouldn’t give any part of the journey up, but boy have I dealt with burn out.

The most helpful thing I do today to help with burnout is to have a checklist of “To do”s and “Won’t do”s. What’s in each category constantly changes as each day develops. I like to think the “won’t do” list is almost more important than the “to do” list. Check out the rest of the interview here.

Bringing the real world challenges to light and how they were overcome, puts the reader in the shoes of the brand maker and gives them a feel for what it was like at the beginning. Building the story behind the brand is what sucks in the reader, builds recognition and a lasting impression.

Speaking of lasting impressions, another interview from Candice Georgiadis, has her meeting up with Rafael Museri, Creator and CEO of Selina, a travel experience focused brand.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? Can you share a story about that?

My tip would be that you need to be the customer of your own product. If you really love what you do and you keep it real and fun, your work becomes your life and your life becomes your work.

Entrepreneurs and CEO’s need to dedicate all of their time to these projects — if in your free time you are not enjoying your own product you need to create two separate lives: personal and work life.

The challenge is that when that moment comes that you need free time or to disconnect and find a way to be a customer of your own product, that’s when it’s truly amazing. But of course, at the same time, you need to keep dreaming and exploring places around the world and think a lot outside the box to continue to expand your business. I connect my passion of exploring new places and learning new cultures with my job at Selina. Read the rest of the interview over here.

Bringing the Selina brand to the traveling masses is what Candice Georgiadis’ focus is with the interview. Showing the traveling public what innovations can be had now, breaking from the traditional ‘sleep’ location.

Let’s jump to the core of our discussion. Can you share with our readers about the innovations that you are bringing to the travel and hospitality industries?

One of the most innovative things we did was to bring professional Coworking spaces into our Selinas. That allowed freelancers, corporate employees and digital nomads to travel and maintain a high level of work in our spaces. The reality is that people need to work, even if people think that when they go off the grid they are going to stop working the truth is that they will keep checking their phone, answering their emails and staying connected to what they do.

This applies more to people that want to travel for more time, let’s say 4–5 months they have to be able to maintain a productive and professional work time. The second is that Selina is not just staying at these prime locations in top cities around the world, but at the same time, we are going to surprise our customers with off the grid and remote locations challenging them to have a different experience.

With many hotels and resorts having established brands, breaking in to the industry can be challenging. Candice Georgiadis continues to help companies get a foothold in the industry and show travelers there is lots more to do than sleep at these places.

Global Real Time Payments Market 2019 Industry Analysis, Share, Growth, Sales, Trends, Supply, Forecast 2026 adds “Global Real Time Payments Market Size study, Vertical, Deployment Mode and Regional Forecasts 2019-2026” reports to its database.

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, August 20, 2019 / — Real time payments are payments received instantly or transferred to the payee account. They are also known as immediate payments or instant-payments. The need for an effective and reliable medium for transfer of money by customers and businessmen has led to its successful development. The global real time payments market is set for a stupendous growth rate due to the development of payment systems suited for handling large transfers.

The real time payments market is driven by the increasing adoption rate of smartphones and demand for quick clearance and transfer of funds electronically. Moreover, the adoption of electronic payment solutions by businessmen and merchants is likely to bolster the market demand. Such factors can culminate to faster transaction speeds, data exchange, and notification alerts to both parties on transfer of payment.

Government initiatives supported by the central banking association established by respective nations globally are projected to drive the real time payments market. The shift from legacy systems to modern systems which can accept foreign exchange and provide appropriate fraud-proof solutions can open up opportunities for players in the fintech ecosystem. This is evident by the plans by the Federal Reserve System, a central banking institution, for the development of a real time payments system which has the support of credit unions and financial institutions by 2023.

Launch of instant-payments which can extend its application beyond normal transactions and open avenues for new entrants. Low dependency on cash or cheque as well as alternatives to Mastercard/Visa networks can attract customers and other enterprises.

The global real time payments market is segmented by nature of payment, component, enterprise size, vertical, deployment mode, and region. By nature of payment, it is segmented into person-to-person, person-to-business, business-to-person, and others. The person-to-business segment is anticipated to gain massive demand due to the increasing volume of real-time transactions. By component, it is divided into solutions and services. By enterprise size, it is segmented into small and medium enterprises and large enterprises. By vertical, the real time payments market caters to energy and utilities, retail and e-commerce, IT and telecommunication, BFSI, and government. The retail vertical is likely to be the biggest contributor to the real time payments market due to the preference of cards and mobile wallets for transactions by customers. By deployment mode, it is segmented into cloud and on-premises.

Regionally, the global real time payments market covers factors, drivers, and opportunities across North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (RoW). APAC is predicted to lead the global market due to rapid adoption of latest technologies and smartphones. Rising number of payment providers and government support in terms of policies to authenticate cashless payments as a mode for transactions can bode well for the market.

Europe is touted to increase market demand in the coming years. Standardization of policies for a payment platform which can uniformly accept all payment systems can drive the regional real time payments market growth. On the other hand, North America is expected to exhibit an exceptional growth rate due to rise of online shopping, emergence of e-commerce shopping, and increasing digitalization.

Aileron Reports on Success of Uptown at Liberty Park Apartments in Cape Coral

Aileron Investment Management reported today on the success of their Uptown at Liberty Park Apartments located in Cape Coral, FL.

The Uptown apartments were a challenge to get across the finish line and I’m grateful we had a committed and experienced contractor in Brooks and Freund of Fort Myers, to assist us in that effort.”

— Bob Beard, CEO of Aileron

TAMPA, FL, UNITED STATES, August 19, 2019 / — Aileron Investment Management (“Aileron”) reported today on the success of their Uptown at Liberty Park Apartments (“Uptown”) located at 2505 Liberty Park Dr., Cape Coral, FL 33909. The luxury apartment community is part of the Liberty Park development, a 32-acre, mixed-use project in Cape Coral.

Uptown is a 320-unit Class A luxury apartment complex consisting of eight 4-story buildings and clubhouse overlooking a fountained lake. The clubhouse is truly spectacular and includes a resort style pool with a shaded grilling station, fully equipped gym, game room, full-service business center, coffee bar and dog spa. The facility also includes a separate dog park for both large and small dogs.

During the final stages of completion, the project faced challenges with the unexpected departure of Aileron’s senior managers to form their own company; Aileron reacted to the challenge with its executive ownership coming off the sidelines to complete the project. The last phase of the project was completed in January 2019 and has been in high demand since its first phase opened in July 2018 and in just over one year is approximately 86% leased.

Aileron is currently completing an adjacent $25+ million 130 room assisted living facility called Atrium at Liberty Park that will be managed by Meridian Senior Living and is scheduled to open in October 2019. They also developed and own Midtown Cape Apartments, a 90-unit Class A apartment community in Cape Coral that opened in August 2017 and is 95% leased.

“The Uptown apartments were a challenge to get across the finish line and I’m grateful we had a committed and experienced contractor in Brooks and Freund of Fort Myers, to assist us in that effort. The complex is beautiful and should provide much needed rental housing and spur further economic development in the Cape Coral community” said Bob Beard, CEO of Aileron.

With today’s banks paying virtually nothing on your investments, it’s imperative for investors to take control of their cash and be recession-proof.”

— Grant Cardone

AVENTURA, FL, USA, August 19, 2019 / — A recent YouTube video released by Cardone Capital founder, Grant Cardone, is highlighting one of the most impactful and effective ways to become, and stay, recession-proof in today’s volatile investment market.

The video, shot on the beautiful island of Fiji by Cardone himself, discusses the need for accredited and non-accredited investors to utilize their cash in real estate assets that produce immediate cash flow.

“With today’s banks paying virtually nothing on your investments, it’s imperative for investors to take control of their cash and be recession-proof,” says Cardone. “Banks make you lock up your money for 10 years at under 2% return per year. Whether its mutual funds, cash accounts, or ETFs, they don’t produce a recession-proof return under any circumstances.”

According to Cardone, the only way to be recession-proof, however, is by having money invested in real estate that is backed up by rental leases.

“Our rental leases are in large apartment complexes,” states Cardone. “These types of investments are highly sought after by investors because of the large amount of cash flow they produce. At Cardone Capital, we only invest in large complexes with many units. The more units in a complex, the more cash flow they produce.”

With Cardone Capital, investors will see a targeted return of 5-6% per year – which is 50x in today’s short term bank rates. This means that investors’ money may see a 15% annualized return, or more, when the property is sold.

Cardone Capital’s properties are quality grade, meaning they are located in neighborhoods with great jobs, schools, and trending areas. Each property is found, managed, purchased, funded, and sold directly by the company to ensure investors see the greatest return possible.

“Because we’ve been in the business so long, we know exactly the precise time to sell these properties,” states Cardone. “When we can double or even triple the equity in the deal, it’s time to sell. With the recurring cash flow from these investments, this means an investor will see 80x what the bank would give them.”

About Cardone Capital

On a mission to identify, acquire, and manage income-producing properties in quality grade locations, Cardone Capital provides opportunities for both accredited and non-accredited investors to preserve capital investments and collect consistent cash distributions, while providing future capital appreciation of the assets.

Cardone Capital’s portfolio currently consists of over 5,500 units with a total value of $1.2 billion, and has plans to expand 10x over the next five years.

Dramatic Colored Diamonds, American Impressionist Paintings and Eames Furniture at
Michaan’s on September 7

“The final quarter of 2019 will be an exciting time in the auction business ,” says Scott Bradley, Vice President and COO of Michaan’s Auctions. “Rare private collections, fine estates and property from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco have made Michaan’s monthly sales very special this year — and there’s much more to come.” Michaan’s Gallery Auction on Saturday, September 7 offers exceptional property in every category.

Michaan’s September sale of fine art will thrill collectors with a New York landscape of excellent provenance by Ernest Lawson (1873-1939), one of ‘The Eight,’ a group of progressive young artists who assertively challenged the dominance of formal academic traditions in early 20th Century American painting. Lawson exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1894, where the critic William Merritt Chase called him “America’s greatest landscape painter.” In New York he was a prominent and influential Impressionist, the only one of ‘The Eight’ to focus on landscape painting. With their unconventional compositions, complex colors and masterful strokes of the palette knife, Lawson’s paintings are lyrical and powerful at the same time. Ernest Lawson’s impasto oil “Landscape – New York” is estimated at $30,000-$50,000.

Another top highlight is the 1962 folio of twelve brilliantly colored aquatints by Georges Braque, “l’Ordre des Oiseaux,” offered by Michaan’s at $20,000-$25,000. Braque created this joyful work in response to a poem written in honor of his 80th birthday by Nobel laureate Saint-John Perse. The Nobel Committee praised “the soaring flight and evocative imagery” of Perse’s poetry; the same can certainly be said of Braque’s “Oiseaux,” a masterpiece of graphic design, modern art at its most optimistic.

In September Michaan’s also features the French graphic designer Paul Colin, perhaps the greatest French poster artist of the Art Deco period. Colin rose to fame in 1920s Paris, as African art and the music of Josephine Baker exploded in popularity among the avante-garde. Michaan’s offers his mixed media gouache on paper “African Dancer” and “African Man with Monkeys,” together in one frame, at $3,000-$5,000.

Works of modern fine art in September’s Gallery Auction also include Helen Frankenthaler’s serene 1980 woodcut, “Cameo” ($5,000-$8,000), Benjamino Bufano’s bronze “Penguin” ($3,000-$5,000), and two by Warhol.

A special opportunity for collectors is the oil on board, “Marin County Farm” ($8,000-$10,000) by ‘Society of Six’ painter Selden Conner Gile (1877-1947). Gile’s plein air landscapes, pulsing with vitality, show Fauve and Impressionist influences but mostly the artist’s singular vision. He lived the quintessential California Bohemian artist’s life, entertaining guests like Jack London on his Belvedere houseboat. Gile’s 1924 painting of Taos hangs in the Oakland Museum of California.

Diamonds in striking fall colors are tops in Michaan’s September fine jewelry. The showstopper is a ring centering a fancy light yellow radiant-cut diamond over five carats in weight, rare and dazzling. Set in platinum and 18k gold and flanked by white diamonds, the gorgeous natural colored stone is GIA certified ($30,000-$50,000). Also perfect in autumn: the “Tango” cuff bracelet by the Italian luxury fine jeweler Pomellato, of luscious brown diamonds set in 18k yellow gold. Estimated at $2,000-$3,000, the bracelet exemplifies Pomellato’s colorful and unconventional aesthetic.

Another standout among the designer jewels is the emerald and diamond ring by Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co. ($8,000-$12,000). A dramatic dome of diamonds centering a sizable emerald-cut emerald, the Schlumberger ring is a bold statement of impeccable taste.

Also highlighted is the pair of earrings by British designer Elizabeth Gage (b. 1937), whose creative vision has long been admired by international tastemakers. Gage’s “African Queen” earrings are offered by Michaan’s at $1,000-$1,500. Featuring a striking ancient coin form design in 18k gold, the earrings are accented by fine diamonds and cultured pearls.

September’s incredible jewelry finds include several more from the world’s top designers. Bulgari’s “Spiga” diamond and 18k white gold ring is offered at $2,000-$3,000. The Patek Philippe pocket watch with fob, in gleaming 18k white gold, is $3,000-$5,000.

Michaan’s selection of fine furniture and collectibles is especially diverse and noteworthy in September. Eames is featured, with several lots including the sculptural ‘Time-Life’ stool of turned walnut, c. 1960 ($1,500-$2,500). In addition, this auction initiates Michaan’s POP! auction-within-the-auction. POP! focuses on mid-20th Century furniture, fine art, “Turn On, Tune In and Drop Out” related memorabilia, including costume; textiles; movie, rock and pop culture posters. Each section of POP! has a unique twist – some sections will look more to the 1950s and 1960s, others, more toward the 1970s and 1980s. The c. 1950 vanilla fiberglass Eames Zenith rocker, first iteration with rope edge, is estimated at $1,200-$1,800. Also of the period is Knoll’s Model 700 upholstered daybed designed by Richard Stein (1917-1990), with beechwood frame and lever-operated folding function ($1,500-$2,000). George Mulhauser’s bentwood walnut and black leather lounge chair with ottoman, known as “Mr. Chair,” is another mid-century modern find (c. 1960, $700-$1,000).

Beatles fans and collectors will be thrilled to find a “Yellow Submarine” film cel ($2,000-$3,000) featuring all four Beatles, part of the “Apple Bonkers” section of the iconic movie. A complete issue of the Andy Warhol-designed multi-media magazine Aspen is offered at $2,000-$3,000. Published in December, 1966, the issue is housed in a box mimicking the graphic design of vintage “Fab” laundry detergent boxes. Among its contents are a flip book based on Warhol's film “Kiss,” a flexi disc by John Cale of the Velvet Underground, and a "ticket book" referencing Timothy Leary’s papers about LSD.

Michaan’s is well known to collectors of Tiffany Studios. Several pieces of Tiffany Studios favrile glass are among the fine decorations in the September 7 auction: a large trumpet vase ($1,600-$1,900) and a pastel centerpiece bowl (c. 1920-1930, $2,000-$3,000). Also from Tiffany Studios is the bronze inkwell dated 1842 ($1,500-$2,500), decorated with lovely nautical scenes and details. For more information and condition reports, please contact specialist Jill Fenichell at (510)227-2524.

Asian art and antiques from fine estates and collections continue to shine in every auction at Michaan’s. 2019 has brought the consignment of exceptional porcelains which have sold very well. From a private San Francisco collection, a top September highlight is the Arabic-inscribed Chinese blue and white bottle-shaped vase with ‘garlic mouth’ estimated at $8,000-$12,000. This offering follows Michaan’s sale in March of a large Arabic-inscribed blue and white plate for $3,500, and the May sale of a Chinese ewer with Arabic inscription for $25,000.

Embroidered Chinese textiles featured in September include the silk robe with black velvet cap ($1,500-$2,500) and the blue ground silk dragon robe ($4,000-$6,000). A set of four embroidered decorative panels ($1,500-$2,500) and a large single panel is ($2,500-$3,500) are also offered. For more information on these fine textiles, including condition reports, contact Michaan’s specialist Annie Zeng at (510)227-2536.

Carved white jade, famille rose porcelains and a massive lingbi scholar’s rock with stand are also among the Asian art highlights. A Chinese ruyi scepter, of cinnabar lacquer finely carved with symbols and decorative motifs, is $2,000-$3,000.

Well aligned with the season is the pair of Chinese brown lacquered, hardstone inlaid wall panels ($3,000-$5,000) inscribed, “In the garden, there are autumn colors, In the home, there is quiet cultivation of virtue”. Dating to the late 18th/early 19th century, the panels are accompanied by a written evaluation, dated 1962, by Kuo-P’ing Chou, the University of Wisconsin.
