John Zimmel Helps Brands Earn More Revenue Through Creative Product Placement Strategies

John Zimmel Greenwich CT

John Zimmel, a young entrepreneur from Greenwich, CT helps businesses and influencers sell more products through product placement

GREENWICH, CT, UNITED STATES, November 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Product placement has been used successfully on TV shows and in movies, and its effectiveness has proven to thrive in the realm of social media through the use of influencers and celebrities. John Zimmel, a media entrepreneur in his early twenties in Greenwich, CT, helps his clients capitalize on the social influencer wave so they can rake in more revenue and brand awareness.

“Product placement is a very effective marketing tool,” said John Zimmel. “A famous example is Reeses Pieces in ET, Ray-Bans in Risky Business, and FedEx in Castaway. Only now with social media, companies do not necessarily need to spend millions of dollars to gain more customers and revenue. They simply have to find the right person, with the right content and right amount of followers.”

“Social media product placement is for any budget,” said John.

Even major brands like Coca-Cola are replacing some of their traditional advertising with social campaigns, whereas smaller companies can quickly rise in the ranks by creating demand for products on Instagram and YouTube through product placement and reviews.

“For product placement on Instagram, influencers simply have to tag the company, creating more visibility to the brand. Depending on the contract, the product can be the predominant focus or used as a background prop. Regardless of what a company decides, the key is to utilize the user-generated content to create an authentic buzz,” said John Zimmel.

In terms of using YouTube, John Zimmel continued, “Vlogging is a huge revenue generator for both the influencer and the company. Vlogger, like influencers, connects directly with their demographic because they themselves are a representation. If a vlogger can create a personal brand that is relatable, accessible, and trustworthy, it creates a positive connotation with other companies he or she partners with.”

The most common product placement types on Youtube include simple product placements, which include casually placing the product in the shot, quickly picking up or using the product, or mentioning the product in the video briefly, without interruption to the main topic. Alternatively, the vlogger can go into a brief or in-depth review of the product, in which the review may be in conjunction with other product reviews. If the company wants to be exclusively featured, it will need to sponsor the video in its entirety, which usually entails using up a large chunk of the marketing budget.

“Product placement is popping up everything across social,” said John. “From live videos, stories, and photos, companies can take advantage of the many entertainment options. Just remember to take into account the relationships influencers build and the quality of content. The more authentic the influencer is, the better the impact on your brand.”

About John Zimmel

John Zimmel is a young, vibrant entrepreneur from Greenwich, CT who’s eager to take his clients’ brand recognition to the next level through social media strategies and high-quality digital content. John Zimmel owns and operates four businesses including his modern-day communications parent company, Labyrinth35X; audio production company, Grass Fed Audio; digital content creation agency, West 35 Media; and his video production company, Nameless Productions.

Quality Expert Daryl Guberman Delivers Quick Overview of ISO Certification Process in new YouTube Video

Daryl Guberman of Guberman-PMC is a recognized authority in the ISO Certification world introduces ISO 9001 University for quality professionals nationwide

With Daryl Guberman's talents ISO 9001 University will become the most popular channel on Youtube for quality managers and aspiring consultants in the quality arena”

— Raymond Mullin, ABAC Advisor

NEW YORK, NY, USA, November 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Daryl Guberman of Guberman-PMC is a recognized authority in the ISO Certification world. He breaks down the ins and outs of the ISO Quality standard process for business owners in a fast and informative way in new video.

There’s little doubt that there is mass confusion about that the ISO Certification process goes over for most businesses and what can (or should) be expected from quality firms who deliver this service. This can lead to wasted resources, less than ideal quality conditions, and other disappointments. The good news is Quality Expert and CEO of Quality and Manufacturing Consultant firm Guberman-PMC Daryl Guberman is tackling this concern head on. Guberman recently released an information packed new video on YouTube “The ISO Certification Process Briefly Revealed”. The video has been met with a quick enthusiastic response.

“Knowledge is power and when it comes to something as important as quality I have made it my mission to help inform as many as possible on what’s going on behind the scenes,” commented Guberman. “I hope this video delivers real value and helps clear away some of the misinformation surrounding quality.”

Guberman makes it clear that the ISO Certification can be quite important but the big factor is who it is obtained from. That many who are posing as quality experts are anything but and their certification are hardly worth the paper they are printed on.

In addition to this Guberman discusses if a quality manual is needed or not and if so where one can be obtained.

Most importantly the quality expert breaks down what the most important way a business owner can tell if their own quality is lacking and it isn’t from any subjective source of questionable veracity or something filled with fluff. Instead, it is in what customers themselves are saying. And if they are giving poor feedback, quality must certainly be worked on fast. If not the results could end up in closed doors and no business at all, no matter what an ISO registrar should say.

Daryl Guberman continues to regularly release videos digging into different aspects of quality and manufacturing with no holds barred. It’s highly recommended business owners and managers subscribe to his YouTube channel if they want to perform their best.

Shulman Family Law Group Adds Immigration Practice

Leading Southern California family law firm will expand to help those with family law matters complicated by immigration challenges

CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — CALABASAS, CA., Nov. 11 — Shulman Family Law Group (SFLG), one of Southern California’s leading family law advocates, has expanded to include immigration services to better help clients with immigration as well as family law issues.

“Many families come to us with family-law matters further complicated by immigration challenges, such as visa issues or the need for resident status and eventually citizenship,” said SFLG founder Maya Shulman, an International Family Law expert who, with the ability to speak Russian, and understand Slavic languages of Eastern Europe, is well versed in the issues the U.S. immigrant population faces.

“It’s much better for these families to have all of their legal needs met by one law firm that understands how some issues impact others,” Shulman said. Her years of working with complex, difficult family law matters prepared her to handle complicated matters of move-away cases and interstate and international family law. With a deep commitment to confidentiality and discretion, Shulman often handles complex matters of custody, surrogacy and entangled divorce for her clients in California and abroad.

To help with the expansion, the firm added Associate Jennifer Lawlor. Lawlor previously worked at the Law Office of Lucy Avedissian, where her practice focused on Family and Employment-based Immigration, as well as Asylum issues. Lawlor’s previous immigration experience, coupled with her family law experience, will help Shulman Family Law Group expand into this area of practice to help address the growing needs of their clients.

The firm’s immigration services will include:

· Family Based Immigration – Family based Immigration provides Permanent Resident Status for relatives of U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents, including spouses, children, parents and siblings. Depending on the facts presented, this can be done pursuant to Adjustment of Status here in the United States, or pursuant to Consular Processing. For spouses of U.S. citizens, this can also include removing Conditional Resident Status. These petitions not only include the preparation of paperwork and responses to potential Requests for Evidence, but also careful analysis of any potential pitfalls including intent, lawful entry into the United States, and bars to admissibility;

· Citizenship Applications for U.S. citizenship by Lawful Permanent Residents, or children of U.S. citizens born outside of the United States; and,

· Special Immigrant Juvenile – Status If an immigrant child is in the U.S. and needs juvenile court protection due to abuse, abandonment or neglect, the child may be eligible for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status, which can lead to Lawful Permanent (U.S.) Residence. This can be a successful alternative to adoptions, which in some circumstances can be procedurally denied.

The Shulman Family Law Group brings decades of collective experience to divorce, asset division, custody, adoption, surrogacy and same-sex issues and has advised sophisticated clients in all aspects of divorce including asset division, spousal and child support, child relocation and cross-border custody enforcement. Attorneys assist clients with adoptions, surrogacy, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, modifications to existing orders and the rights of same-sex couples.

J. Garrett Auctioneers' Nov. 2-4 auction, featuring the "Bo" Pilgrim and Richard Horton estates, grosses over $2 million

Stunning 19th century oil on canvas painting by Nicolaas Pieneman (Dutch, 1809-1860), titled Columbus Discovers America, signed lower right, 63 inches by 76 inches ($41,600).

Outstanding set of carved alabaster angels having gold-gilded wings and amazing overall detail, 47 inches tall and shown bearing gifts and playing musical instruments ($28,800).

Louis XVI bedroom suite after the design of Jean-Henri Riesener (French, 1734-1806), featuring a bed, armoire and stands, having ormolu bronze mounts by Jean Rabiant ($48,000).

Pair of circa 1890 Royal Vienna urns, monumental in size at 57 inches tall each (on stands), with each capped urn surmounted by a large antlered gargoyle handles ($54,400).

Large American gilt bronze and white marble centerpiece by Edward F. Caldwell & Co. (N.Y.), circa 1905, with the large marble bowl held by two Greco-Roman figures ($60,800).

A pair of carved alabaster angels ($28,800) and an oil on canvas painting of Columbus’s discovery of America by Nicolaas Pieneman ($41,600) were two top lots.

This sale was very reminiscent of the good old auction days. We had the perfect storm of a big name, some fantastic merchandise and a phenomenal live crowd here on the floor.”

— Julie Garrett VanDolen

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, November 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — An outstanding pair of carved alabaster angels having gold-gilded wings and amazing overall detail sold for $28,800 and an important oil on canvas painting of Columbus’s discovery of America by Nicolaas Pieneman (Dutch, 1809-1860) brought $41,600 at an auction of items from the estate of Lonnie “Bo” Pilgrim (1928-2017), the co-founder of Pilgrim’s Pride.

Pilgrim’s Pride was, at one time, one of the largest chicken producers in the United States. Items from Mr. Pilgrim’s estate headlined the auction held November 2nd-4th by J. Garrett Auctioneers, online and in the Dallas gallery at 9203 Diplomacy Row. Also offered were items from Richard Horton of Fort Worth, Texas, who amassed a museum-quality collection spanning over 50 years.

“This sale was very reminiscent of the good old auction days,” said Julie Garrett VanDolen of J. Garrett Auctioneers. “We had the perfect storm of a big name, some fantastic merchandise and a phenomenal live crowd here on the floor. Many of our best customers and friends flew in to preview and bid. We’re thrilled for our consignors and for so many buyers who are taking home some important historical pieces.” Ms. VanDolen added the sale grossed more than $2 million.

The alabaster angels – 47 inches tall and shown bearing gifts and playing musical instruments – were the first item up for bid. “Nothing kicks off an auction like hands in the air and a bidding war on the very first lot of a sale,” Ms. VanDolen remarked. “These were estimated low, and a floor bidder wasn’t leaving without them. Understandable, as they will make for a killer holiday décor. That kind of bidding so early in the day set the pace and the overall tone for a great sale.”

The large, 19th century oil on canvas painting by Nicolaas Pieneman, titled Columbus Discovers America, was a stunning depiction, signed lower right, and measured 63 inches by 76 inches in the frame. It met and sailed past its high estimate of $30,000. “The painting is beautiful and was acquired by a prominent art gallery,” Ms. VanDolen said, adding, “It may end up in a museum.”

Following are additional highlights from the auction. A healthy in-person crowd made its way to the gallery in person over the course of the three days, while many others registered to bid online via the platform LiveAuctioneers.com. All prices quoted include a 28 percent buyer’s premium.

A large, fine quality gilt bronze and white marble centerpiece, made around 1905 by Edward F. Caldwell & Co. (N.Y.), gaveled for $60,800. The piece consisted of a large marble bowl held by two Greco-Roman figures. The bronze was ornately decorated with bacchanalia masks. The buyer, interestingly, was Mr. Caldwell’s granddaughter, Margaret “Meg” Caldwell of New York.

“It was actually an emotional moment when the hammer dropped and Dad was able to announce our phone bidder was Ms. Caldwell,” Ms. VanDolen said. “There was a special energy running through the crowd at that moment, followed by a round of applause and even a few happy tears.”

A pair of rare and monumental Royal Vienna urns, made circa 1880 and standing 57 inches tall (on footed stands), sold as one lot for $54,400. The capped urns, unsurpassed for quality, were surmounted by bronze antlered gargoyle handles and enriched with stylized gold decoration on a burgundy field. Each urn was painted in vibrant colors depicting Apollo and attendants heralding the dawn of Venus and Mars, and the reverse showing Justice and a muse emblematic of the arts.

An important and fine Louis XVI bedroom suite, crafted after the design of Jean-Henri Riesener (French, 1734-1806) for the commode of La Chambre de Louis XVI at Versailles, finished at $48,000. The suite consisted of a bedframe measuring 59 inches tall by 72 ¾ inches wide, a 9 foot 5 inch tall armoire signed “JRA” in verso behind a cobalt globe, and a pair of stands. The ormolu mounts were done by Jean Rabiant, with fruitwood marquetry and parquetry mahogany.

Also sold was an oil on canvas painting of a girl in a field reaching for a flower by the Lebanese abstract artist Elie Kanaan (Lebanese, 1926-2009), 38 ½ inches by 38 inches, in good condition ($35,200); and a large KPM plaque, signed lower left, in a 34 inch by 29 inch frame ($17,920).

“Bo” Pilgrim co-founded Pilgrim’s Pride in 1946, when he opened a feed store in Pittsburg, Texas, outside of Dallas. He and his late wife Patty became dedicated antique collectors and traveled the world to furnish their residences with the finest antiques. Many of the items in the sale came from the couple’s mansion home in Pittsburg, nicknamed ‘Cluckingham Palace’.

The firm specializes in estate auctions and works with private individuals, trust and estate attorneys and family executors to offer a comprehensive approach to all aspects concerning an auction. J.

Loro Parque’s Max Planck Institute for Ornithology proves that there is no jealousy of food in parrots

This is an important finding because inequity aversion, also termed “sense of fairness” has been considered an important mechanism in the evolution of cooperative behaviour”

— Dr. Anastasia Krasheninnikova, the lead author of this study

PUERTO DE LA CRUZ, SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, SPAIN, November 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Scientists from the Max-Planck-Institute for Ornithology, based at the Max-Planck Comparative Cognition Research station in the Loro Parque, Tenerife, found that four species of parrots did not show any negative reaction to their partner receiving a better pay-off than themselves from a human experimenter in exchange for tokens. Unlike most tested primate species so far, who so to speak “freak out” if their partner gets a better reward, the parrots reacted neither to their partner receiving something better for the same effort (i.e. to an unequal food distribution), nor to having to work harder for the same reward (thus to unequal effort).

The team around Dr. Auguste von Bayern trained parrots – owned by the Loro Parque Fundación in Tenerife- to trade in tokens for food. Then they conducted a study in which two parrots were placed in adjacent compartments and were requested to exchange tokens against food with an experimenter alternatingly. The parrots were tested in different conditions, in which the quality of the food reward as well as the effort they were required to invest varied. The scientists examined how the parrots reacted to an unequal food distribution or unequal effort, compared to equal treatment and found no difference. A control condition revealed that the parrots responded merely to better food being visible in their neighbour compartment, irrespective of whether another bird was present or not.

Dr. Anastasia Krasheninnikova, the lead author of this study, comments: “This is an important finding because inequity aversion, also termed “sense of fairness” has been considered an important mechanism in the evolution of cooperative behaviour. It enables individuals to detect when their partner cheats upon them, e.g. by not sharing food equally or by avoiding effort, and therefore allows them to decide when it pays off to switch to a new cooperation partner.”

Dr. Auguste von Bayern, the leader of the research team adds: “Our study adds to the very recent evidence, that inequity aversion is not a general prerequisite for the evolution of cooperation. It is a good strategy only for animals living in societies in which one can switch between cooperation partners easily, such as those of most primates. In contrast, it turns out that in long-term monogamous species that form pair bonds for life and show biparental care, such as parrots, there is a much higher tolerance of inequity. In such species individuals greatly depend on their functioning pair-bond and consequently, disrupting such a valuable bond in order to look for a fairer partner would simply be too costly.”

The study adds to the evidence that inequity aversion is not necessarily a pre-requisite for cooperation. In long-term monogamous species, quite contrarily, individuals are so dependent on their partner that they have not evolved to become jealous if their cooperation partner receive better payoffs.
