(DALLAS, TX, October 18th) The Freddy Cain Show, hosted by the witty, engaging creative, Freddy Cain, announced today a deal with the hit television network, CW33. “The Freddy Cain Show” is an entertainment series based out of Dallas, TX,  covering red-carpet events, community human interests, and most known for securing compelling interviews with celebrities such as Kanye West, Teddy Riley, Snoop Dogg, Jerry Jones, Akon, Chris Tucker, Bobby Brown, and Nancy Lieberman, just to name a few. The show will premiere every Saturday, at 12:00PM CST, beginning this Saturday, October 19th, with the first episode featuring IBF Welterweight World boxing champ and Dallas native, Errol Spence Jr.

“I’m opening up a lane in Dallas that should have been done a long time ago. There is so much that goes on in the City of Dallas that everyone needs to know about.” said creative producer and host, Freddy Cain. “Featuring Errol Spence Jr. for our first episode made sense to me, since we took the city to Hollywood. He’s a champion, and I’m a champion and we’re both willing to take the hits for success. I want this to resonate with our viewers.”

In 2009, after 5 years of hosting red carpet events, Cain had a vision to produce his own TV show. While scoping The Green Sheet Publication for ideas, he came across an ad for a play “South of Where We Live” showing at The Jr. Black Academy of Arts & Letter. Cain attended the play and the casting party afterward, and that is when the ‘The Freddy Cain Show’ came into fruition.

“I met Carl Payne, “Cole” from Martin. When I interviewed him, I asked him to do the famous bird call. When he did…I looked behind Carl and the entire cast was lined up waiting for interviews; that’s when a light popped on.” said Cain.

Gearing up for the big screen, the red-carpet host and Gold Mic™ superstar Cain, hired recognized entertainment production company, SoloTV Productions, who will be responsible for curating the unique, innovative content that captures the viewers’ attention, along with PR Firm, Nina Zavala Group, and infamous television agent, Joe Courrege.

Layups2Standup Announces 3rd Annual “Why Not?? Comedy Show”

Acclaimed comedian Demetrius “Juice” Deason and OKC Thunder’s very own Russell Westbrook will host an infamous evening of comedy with the 3rd Annual “Why Not?? Comedy Show”

Friday, August 17, 2018 (Oklahoma City, OK) – Layups2Standup, an innovative brand that channels the love of basketball and comedy to create community events, has announced the return of the “Why Not?? Comedy Show” hosted by renowned comedian Demetrius “Juice” Deason and NBA MVP Russell Westbrook. The event will take place Friday, October 26th at the iconic Tower Theater in Oklahoma City.

The inaugural “Why Not?? Comedy Show” was created to become a staple event in Oklahoma, kicking off the Thunder’s NBA season. In only its third year, the “Why Not?? Comedy Show” has emerged as one of the most anticipated events of the year. In addition to comedy and cocktails, proceeds of the comedy show will benefit Regional Food Bank Oklahoma – Food For Kids Backpack Program. Through the Backpack Program, the Regional Food Bank delivers pre-assembled food sacks and backpacks to participating schools at no cost to the school or the child. The food bags contain approximately 10 different purchased foods designed to provide nutrition and calories for chronically hungry children over the weekend.

“We are excited to be back, kicking off another Thunder season with the City of Oklahoma at the 3rd Annual “Why Not?? Comedy Show”- but I must say the nonprofit that we went with this year has really hit home,” said Comedian and Founder of Layups2standup Demetrius Deason. “It brings great joy to know our initiative in partnership with the Regional Food Bank Oklahoma plans to feed 180 kids through the Backpack Program, over a year time span…And that is what Layups2Standup, myself, and Russell are about!”

This years’ event is slated to be bigger and better, cultivating an evening of laughter and premiere entertainment with a diverse lineup of established and emerging comedic talent. With a star-studded red carpet lined with celebrities, professional athletes, corporate partners, and the “who’s who” of Oklahoma, “WHY NOT?” attend.

About Regional Food Bank Oklahoma – Food for Kids Programs
One in four children in Oklahoma has inconsistent access to healthy food. The Regional Food Bank is working hard to end childhood hunger in Oklahoma by providing chronically hungry children with the meals they need today to help them thrive. More than 37 percent of the Regional Food Bank’s emergency food recipients are children. Last year, the Regional Food Bank saw a dramatic increase in the need for food assistance. For the first time ever, nearly 44,000 chronically hungry children were served through the Food for Kids Programs, a 17 percent increase.
Because there is a critical connection between childhood nutrition and cognitive and physical development, even nutritional deficiencies of a relatively short-term nature can negatively impact a child’s health, behavior and the ability to concentrate and perform complex tasks. Going without food can cause behavioral and psychological effects such as depression, aggression, anxiety and poor social skills in children. Food is the most essential school supply. Hungry children cannot learn.

The Regional Food Bank serves children directly through four programs in its Food for Kids Programs: Backpack Program, Kids Cafe, Summer Feeding and School Pantries. For more information: Regional Food Bank OKC Food For Kids

The Basics: Marketing your Business/Organization

What is Marketing?
There are variations when defining what Marketing because it is so BROAD, but in this blog, we’re defining Marketing as creating, communicating, capturing and sustaining value for your organization or company. It’s a need that every business must have to foster growth and better yet, value.

Marketing

Why does my company/organization need Marketing?
1. Capture the attention of your target market
2. Facilitate your target market’s purchasing decision
3. And bottom line, it is the cornerstone of every successful business

The first step in Marketing your business is developing a Marketing Plan. Consider this your guide to understanding your businesses’ goals, objectives, target audience, etc. This plan will allow you to create strategic ways that resonate with your target audience and set you apart from the others.   Marketing Plan

In developing a Marketing Plan consider these components:
A. Situation Analysis– This is your company/organization’s current situation. What is your company about? where do you stand financially? what are your goals? Who are your competitors?
B. Target Market- Who are you trying to reach? What do they value? What are their needs?
C. Action Plan-How are you going to reach your target audience? What marketing strategies are you going to implement to help you reach them, grab their attention, influence their decision in using your product or services?
D. Evaluation Plan– Once you have created and implemented your strategy, monitor its effectiveness and make any adjustments required to maintain its success.

Example: (Short version of course)
• My goal is lose 10lbs in 30 days.

• My strategy to lose the 10lbs is to work out 5x a week and
Cut out all carbs.
• My evaluation plan is to create a journal of my daily intake and workouts. Every Sunday throughout the month, I’ll weigh myself, write it down in my journal and track the progression of my weight loss

marketing strategyMarketing Strategy: Your strategy is how you’re going to accomplish the goals in your plan. Your strategy promotes and communicates the benefits of your business. What differentiates your company from your competitors. Basic examples below.

A. Social Media Marketing– Free platforms that millions of people utilize each day. Develop a social media plan that targets your audience.
B. Advertisement – Paid Ad placement
C. Creative Content – Story telling through graphics and video’s, infomercials,
D. Public Relations (PR)- News stories, blog write-ups, interviews in publications, on radio & television about your company/organization.
E. Effective Blogging- This strategy has so much impact if used to its fullest capacity.
F. Leverage Influencers– Influencers are people who have a voice in the market you’re trying to reach. Use their platforms to communicate your message. Some companies create what we call “Brand Ambassador Programs”.
G. Partnering with a charity or non-profit. This is considered cause-related marketing. It allows your company/organization to become visible to the public in a positive light.
H. Cross Marketing/ Cross Promoting- Partnering with companies that share the same vision but are in two different lanes.

 

I can go on and on about strategic marketing. It’s about being creative, innovative, and strategic. Put yourself in your consumers shoes, how would you like to be pitched? What are some things you would appreciate and like, if you were on the other side? Remember this, Branding is the foundation, and Marketing is the core!

My next couple of blogs will directly highlight in detail some of these marketing strategies from point A-Z, starting with Social Media Marketing- one of the most powerful marketing tools known in this era of technology.
