I just finished attending my third Licensing Expo at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas. I WROTE THIS BLOG in 2009. At this year’s event, I saw more than ever that whatever was old is new - or reimagined - again. So … I thought I would rerun these thoughts. Only thing maybe changed is popularity of Jonas Brothers?

Julia Beck (founder of the Forty Weeks consulting firm that specializes in the expectant and new moms market) reminds me of all the best qualities of Dolly Levi. She’s a dynamic, energized marketing matchmaker who arranges things … like creative partnerships between complementary brands, major brand-building events, innovative promotional campaigns, one-of-a-kind strategies, advertorials, image makeovers and effective ways to match women with products and services, from fertility through first years with new life.

Lately, many of the top marketing minds have been stating publicly that businesses should be redirecting their resources away from their website and into Facebook, specifically Facebook fan pages. ‘Skittles’ now uses its website as solely a landing page, redirecting traffic to its social media platforms, specifically Facebook.
