PR Resolutions for 2015

A New Year needs new resolutions, right? Whether you believe in resolutions, or not, it never hurts to create some new goals for yourself. Or, in this case, your business. How can we better ourselves? Our clients? Our year overall? So, in honor of new beginnings, here are Bark’s New Year Resolutions for 2015.

International Day of the Girl

International Day of the Girl is on October 14th, 2014.  This is a day to celebrate, empower and encourage our girls to be all they want to be and to not succumb to negative societal influences. This 3-year-old holiday, created by the United Nations, is not just a day; it’s a global movement. It’s a movement for girls everywhere to be seen as equals, in the eyes of others, and in their own eyes.

Fun, Free (and Almost Free) Activities in S.A.

Now that the weather is finally cooling down (can we get an amen?!), it’s time to get out and about in our city. San Antonio has tons to offer us with affordable entertainment. Whether you’re chilling alone, totting some toddlers, or have your furry friend with you, our mini-list will provide you something free (or close to it) options to liven up your day without having to break the bank.

The Fabulous Life of the Fictional Publicist: PR Characters We Adore

With award season upon us, how can publicists and PR firms forget how accurately we’re portrayed in our favorite TV shows and movies? Though that enthusiastic question/statement may be as fictional as the characters played, we still enjoy all the drama, fun and entertainment that these characters bring into our lives.

And, so, the awards for our top 5 for favorite fictional publicist are…

Made W/Code Parties with Girls Inc. of San Antonio

Girls Inc. of San Antonio is having a party! The local non-profit will be hosting their Made W/Code events, open to all girls 12-18 years old, at St. Mary’s University Campus. The goal is to spike girls’ curiosity and encourage them to explore the countless possibilities of what they can do with code. With family and community support we can encourage young minds to broaden their interest and career horizons.

Eat, PR, Love

So you’re going to open a new restaurant? That’s awesome! That’s great! That’s completely terrifying! Opening a restaurant can be a big risk. Ever heard that 90% of restaurants close within the first year? That statistic is enough to have you shaking in your chef’s hat. You might have the most banging brunch or insanely well-crafted cocktails but if people don’t read about your place, the turnout may be less than ideal.

How do you get the word out about your life changing truffled-fries? The electric atmosphere? How will you ever make it to your second birthday? Other than your insane cooking talents, consider utilizing some marketing tools to help spread the goodness:

The Influencer Series: Bombasta & the San Antonio Renaissance

Roberto Livar is Bombasta, the mind behind San Antonio’s “Barrio Big Band” that is as dancey as it is politically profound, capturing the richness of San Antonio’s “crossroad culture” all while encouraging concert-goers to “shake their ass.”

The Influencer Series: MacTEACH Founder Steve Davidson

When Steve Davidson – a senior English teacher by day and educational superstar by night – started MacTEACH in 2009 at NEISD’s MacArthur High School in San Antonio, he never anticipated the success and national acclaim that his tutoring program would receive. Enlisting the help of his honors students, Davidson began a tutoring program for English Language Learners out of his small, often overcrowded classroom. Today, the program has expanded to include two elementary schools in the MacArthur cluster: Oak Grove and Regency Place, eventually growing to include tutoring programs for Advanced Placement classes, another for Burmese refugees (including a strings program in partnership with the Youth Orchestra of San Antonio!), and a tutoring program for students at Garner Middle School, among others.
