5. Easily sharable Dollar Shave Club includes traditional media placement, like television, in their marketing strategy. But the success of the launch and rapid growth can be attributed to the shareability of their digital content . By creating a variety of video content, along with stop-motion animations, promoted through social media, they made it easy for prospective customers and consumers to share that content with their friends and family. It was, and still is, a perfect formula for getting content to spread. Simply create content that triggers positive emotions. Awe-inspiring content, humor, and strong stories make any piece of content engaging and shareable. 6. Every word has a purpose Early in the production process, Dubin had a sizable script that ran upwards of four pages. Part of the creative process meant trimming that down. It’s an approach you have to take with content, no matter the format.

I can imagine a day when they hold their friends and family accountable too. I have a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old. My husband and I were athletes in college and we remain active as adults. I love it when my 4-year-old sees me pulling on my sneakers and says, "Are you going to take your exercise now?" Hopefully, when he is a parent, the accountability will be even stronger. Maybe his kids will grow up will say, "Hey, Mom and Dad -- when was the last time you had 30 minutes of physical activity? Let's get moving!" -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Evo Morales, Bolivian President, (Spanish): "We are a big family, which is our beloved Bolivia. Now Bolivia is in the eyes of the whole world as a model country, how can not everyone contribute?

I understood, firsthand, what it means to hold the monopoly of violence. Later, policemen riding horses were brought in to compound the Tennysonian impression. The police’s leadership even built a tent on a nearby hill, from where they too, could admire the might of their men. Does adding the tent to the rendition produce an account more reminiscent of Roman Empire style furore? As the policemen charged past, the inevitable gunfire began. It was still dark and there was a lot of tear gas being dealt out. There was chaos and the incessant, single, mournful drone of a car horn that seemed to sound on for eternity. Rumors were that a dead man was slumped forward on his car horn. This only made the sound less bearable. Together with an equally bleary-eyed Bedouin family, I was quickly escorted to a perimeter the police had established to create a “sterile zone” for the demolition.

One-fifth of fathers said their employer was unsympathetic about childcare, expecting no disruption to work, while 44% had lied to their employer about family-related responsibilities that “get in the way” of work.

” “To be honest, we Palestinians have plenty of experience dealing with a man like Trump over someone like Hillary,” he added. “Since we have been doing so with Mr. Netanyahu for the past decade. In other words, we now can look at reality and expect the worse, instead of deluding ourselves with hopes for a bright future.” Laura Hamdan, a Palestinian-American student from St. Louis who just returned to the U.S. from winter break in the occupied West Bank, said that if Trump keeps his promises regarding the embassy essentially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel it will signal a loss of hope. “Recognizing Jerusalem as only the capital of Israel is sort of telling the Palestinian side that you really have no future in deciding your own autonomy,” she said. While Hamdan is concerned about the implication of what a Trump presidency will mean for Palestine, she also has more immediate concerns about the safety of her Muslim family in America.
