Whether helping homeless individuals, providing a safe place for stray animals or feeding the hungry (the list goes on and on), nonprofits do great work for our communities in countless ways.

Inflation is everywhere, mortgage rates have increased by more than 2.5 percentage points this year, there’s a shortage of housing inventory, and the housing market is cooling off quickly. We’ve all seen the headlines, and it does paint quite a picture, but it isn’t time to liquidate your mortgage marketing and lead-gen strategies just yet. […]
It seems like we are always being introduced to important new business acronyms. We’ve got Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Then there’s Return on Ad Spend (ROAS), CMOs are now CROs, and the alphabet soup goes on with CRM, CX, UX, CTR, CPC, SEM, SEO, and so on. However, one […]
Influencer marketing is here to stay. Let me repeat this one more time for the people in the back. Influencer marketing isn’t going anywhere. We all probably thought that influencer marketing was a fad at one time. We saw social media influencers first start on Facebook promoting products, then came the thousands of long-form reviews […]
Community is a multifaceted word. There are hundreds of touchpoints where your firm can connect with and do good for your local communities.

Protecting Your Brand in an Age of Increased Exposure Your brand is the aggregate of what you say it is and what regular people on the street, or probably more correctly, the internet, say it is. In fact, there has never been a time when consumers had more power over what a brand “means” than […]
Let’s be honest. The last two years have been brutal. The COVID-19 pandemic continues, a lot of us haven’t seen a majority of our co-workers in person since 2020, and many businesses continue to cut back, not by choice but as a result of the hard hit they’ve taken to their bottom line. What, if […]

While the COVID-19 pandemic continued to prevail in 2021, we were able to restore some sense of normalcy. Our team returned to trade shows for the first time since 2019, swapped the sweatpants for slacks for the occasional in-person client meeting, and we were finally able to limit the number of times we had to […]

Several years ago, a marketing professional from a large company told me trade media simply wasn’t worthy of their marketing plan. Talking about their product in trade media before it was available to consumers didn’t make sense to them. They had a sales team to handle getting the word out. No offense to their team, […]

More importantly, these shows routinely represent critical sales opportunities for businesses of all sizes. Then […]
When I was a kid, my near-scratch golfer dad spent a lot of time trying to teach me his passion. There were many steps on how to approach the ball. And there were corrective instructions for most practice swings, but when it came to the actual swing, there were only two things I was told […]
In today’s hyperconnected, digitally focused world, reputation management is a 24-hour job. With countless social media platforms available for both fans and foes to say anything anytime about your brand – like that they found fish tails (well, shrimp) in their box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch – these posts can easily influence a company’s success, […]
When we think of online influencers, it’s easy to instantly think of a celebrity or someone on Instagram with a blue checkmark by their name and one million plus-followers; sharing their favorite makeup or facial cleanser – but in reality, these types of influencers aren’t what’s driving the high user engagement rates – rather their […]
PriceWeber, a digital-forward, full-service marketing and advertising agency, has named current Media Director, Mary Kate Reed, as a new company shareholder and Senior Vice President.
Brands globally worked to build or upgrade their websites and online stores in response to the pandemic, which is no surprise with the closures of brick-and-mortar businesses.

Love it or hate it, social media is more than just a way to connect with friends online. While many of us remember when Facebook first began and being part of a community that didn’t include Business Pages or Newsfeed Ads, the world of social media from 15 years ago is very different from what it is now, which is a world where businesses can no longer afford to not maximize their social presence. In this edition of Plain Talk, we’ll walk you through why social media is more important than ever and what you should do about it.

Standing 39 feet and six inches tall, the National Addy award-winning nutcracker has returned to Louisville, Ky., where it is now social distancing outside of local advertising agency, PriceWeber. This year, PriceWeber is leveraging a much-loved annual tradition to spread a very important message – wear a mask this holiday season.

In 2020, typical communications strategies took a back seat amid the global COVID-19 pandemic. Many businesses quickly pulled all marketing efforts during the start of COVID-19, evaluating how to best handle this crisis and still get key messaging to the public without appearing tone-deaf to what was happening in the world around us. But while […]
For a long time to come, 2020 will be known as the year that changed everything – the way we live, socialize, shop, travel and work. You name it and it was impacted this year. That includes crisis communications plans that were already in place. Many businesses have formal plans that help them prepare for their worst-case scenarios, but who was ready for a pandemic that affected how businesses operate, or for national protests as a result of racial injustice that held businesses accountable to be transparent about where they stood in the Black Lives Matter movement? The answer: absolutely no one.
If you’ve been in the banking business for a while like me, you can attest to the fact that for decades, pundits have declared virtually every recession, economic downturn or national crisis to be the death knell of community banks, and in 2020, the financial emergency caused by the global pandemic is no different.
In this edition of our plain-talk series, we’ll take a look at brand trust and corporate social responsibility, and discuss how the two are playing out during the current COVID-19 global crisis.
PriceWeber, a digital-forward, full-service marketing and advertising agency, has been recognized on the 16th annual “Best Places to Work in Kentucky” list. PriceWeber was one of 38 small-sized companies (15-149 employees) to earn this year’s title.

In today’s plain-talk newsletter, we’re talking social responsibility trends. Americans’ trust in the federal government to handle both international and domestic matters is at the lowest point it has been in more than twenty years, according to a recent Gallup poll. Only 35 percent of Americans have “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of trust in the U.S. government’s ability to handle domestic issues. Meanwhile, trust in the government to handle international issues ranks only six points higher at a mere 41 percent.
In the advertising world, April Fools’ Day is comparable to the Super Bowl. Advertising agencies and corporations show off their creative flair with entertaining (and sometimes eye-roll worthy) spoofs.

There’s no better way to start a New Year than with a new client. And when that client includes a polar bear, snowy owls, Siberian tiger, and western lowland gorillas (to name a few)…that’s just icing on top.
We didn’t say it, but Gene Marks of The Washington Post did. This holiday season, PriceWeber wanted to create a unique way to showcase our festive spirit while driving awareness for our client Louisville Ballet. So we constructed a 39-foot, 6-inch nutcracker. The result is “cracking a few nuts” from its position just off Shelbyville Road. And yes, it can actually crack a nut.
If 2016 set out to be the year of controversy, it certainly hasn’t disappointed.
