No longer the new kid

By Ashourina Slewo If you had asked me during my last semester at Wayne State where I thought I would end up after graduation, I would not have an answer for you. I have great passion for journalism, but for a 20-something fresh out of college, you are usually met with rejection or unpaid internships and to a certain extent, even passion is not enough. That’s where I was. That is until I got a very brief email from my professor asking me if I would be interested in writing for The Chaldean News. […]

Advertising the Message

Your advertisements should tell your story. Ads can be created for traditional platforms such as radio, TV, print publications, billboards and they can also be created for social media and other internet marketing platforms. You can also create marketing materials that tell your story or at least tease it. The success of those ads will depend on your content. What messages are you delivering to your potential customers and clients? […]

Victory and Concession: The Candidates Humanly Speaking

Strategically Speaking: A Blog by Denha Media Group A surprise presidential outcome ended in two unexpected speeches delivered in ways that we never really saw on the campaign trail. President-elect Donald Trump accepted the presidency with humility and dignity and Hillary Clinton conceded with strength and grace. Not the Trump and Clinton we saw much over the last 12 months however, both speeches are exactly how each needed to end this presidential race. […]

The Challenge of Moving On After Melania’s Message

Strategically Speaking: A Blog by Denha Media Group What would have been deemed a pretty decent speech is now overshadowed by two paragraphs. And not only is Melania Trump’s overall message about her husband being ignored, the media doesn’t seem to be talking about anything anyone else said on opening day of the Republican National Convention. Will her alleged plucking out from Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech “trump” the speeches lined up for  tonight? […]

Wrong Words and Terrible Typos Can Ruin A Website

Strategically Speaking: A Blog by Denha Media Group I was Googling places to have my daughter’s 9th birthday and I came across a fun party place for kids that would entertain more than 20 kids for nearly three hours. I read only a few lines at first.  They would also order the pizza and provide two people to assist me with the party. I had attended a party for my nephew at the same place a few months earlier and was quite impressed with the service. I called them on the phone and planned my daughter’s party. They emailed me [...]

When A Communication Problem Takes The Cake for A Costly Mistake!

Strategically Speaking: A Blog by Denha Media Group My husband, daughter and I went to a very popular Michigan-based supermarket to pick up her birthday cake. When we arrived to the bakery, the woman behind the counter handed us over two half sheet cakes almost identical. “What’s this?” I asked. “I didn’t order two cakes.” “I think one was butter cream and one was frosting; we weren’t sure what you wanted?” “Why didn’t you call me? Two different women called me yesterday to ask me the same question. Why wouldn’t you call me to ask about the frosting? I did [...]

Crime Remains King While Positive PR Plays the Pawn in Detroit’s Comeback Swing

Strategically Speaking: A Blog by Denha Media Group It’s the Monday after the Grand Prix and just a couple of days following the Mackinac Policy Conference, and my morning scan of the media was a breaking news story that is a strong reminder that Detroit cannot escape it’s number one problem ­– crime. Crime will always over shadow any positive PR. It’s the old adage that if bleeds it leads and boy have we been bleeding. The first Twitter feed I read that morning was from Tom Jordan and WWJ: “Police investigate Triple Murder on City’s West Side.” […]

Memorable Mackinac Policy Conference Moments

Strategically Speaking: A Blog by Denha Media Group Some of the most memorable Mackinac moments are crafted quotes and comments that were actually strategically created to be memorable sound bites in speeches and media interviews. It’s all about knowing how to tell your own story. Nearly one year later, you may not remember exactly who said what during the 2015 Mackinac Policy Conference and at the Detroit Policy Conference but at the time, the messages were noted. […]
