Regalix Examines Account-Based Marketing in its Digital CMO Digest

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA, USA, November 19, 2018 / — The 9th edition of Regalix Inc.’s Digital CMO Digest is now live, and this time, it puts Account-Based Marketing (ABM) under the proverbial microscope. Each issue of the digest is dedicated to a topic relevant to digital transformation in the fields of marketing, sales and customer success, and explores it in depth with the help of inputs from senior executives and experienced practitioners who are at the forefront of their areas of expertise.

In this edition of the digest, Regalix has captured the thoughts of leaders such as Salesforce’s Director, Marketing Cloud; Gartner Inc.’s Managing Vice President, Tech GTM Marketing, Product and Sales Group; and Microsoft India’s Country Head (Dynamics), about all things ABM.

The concept of ABM is not a new one. In fact, it’s been put to use in one form or another from as early as the 1990s. Much has changed since then, however. The recent explosion in awareness and implementation of ABM practices around the world can be attributed to the technological advancements of the last two decades, which have made it possible to conduct ABM effectively and at scale. With the practice now becoming mainstream, it’s the perfect time to explore this marketing approach which is set to revolutionize the way business is conducted.

The issue brings forth some interesting insights. For instance, there’s near unanimous agreement among experts on the technologies driving ABM – AI, machine learning, big data and predictive analytics. The issue also talks about future trends in ABM, the impact of AI and much more.

BLOCK 30 Index Launches for Crypto Trading Markets

Will Serve As One of The First US Multi-Factor Trading Crypto Indexes "Beyond Bitcoin"

SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, November 18, 2018 / — New BLOCK 30 Index Launches For Crypto Trading Markets Will Serve as One of The First US Multi-Factor Trading Indexes “Beyond Just Bitcoin”

San Diego, CA – BLOCK 30 Labs announced today the global release of its BLOCK 30 Index for the digital trading (“Crypto”) markets. The BLOCK 30 Index is one of the first US indexes to help investors track multiple factors beyond bitcoin, including: Market Cap, Asset Price, Trading Volume, Sector Weighting, Market Sentiment and an Index Committee.

“We studied the historical indexes of the past – many of which are still in use today – took that learning and applied some new innovations for the digital trading markets,” said BLOCK 30 Labs Founder, Brian McLaren Foote. “Digital trading is less than 10 years old and the early parallels to the Dow and the S+P 500 are eye opening.”

The BLOCK 30 index will be issued alongside the thematic sector indexes and a comprehensive TV media ticker, including: BLOCK 5, BLOCK 30, BLOCK 100, BLOCK 500, BLOCK 2000, BLOCK ASIA, BLOCK Finance, BLOCK Energy, BLOCK Transports, BLOCK Logistics, etc.

“With hundreds of blockchain projects planning to go public through STO’s (Security Token Offerings) in 2019, this kind of sophisticated index tracking will be important for global markets, thematic sector coverage and investor protection,” said Ryan Ballantyne, Sr. Vice President of Reality Shares ETF’s.

“The original 12 Dow stocks were mostly Railroads and Cotton, none of which are even in the Dow 30 today. You need to build an index that can reflexively track the lifecycles of a new trading market and BLOCK 30 Labs is solving for that 10-20 years out. As these markets mature, coverage beyond bitcoin will be critical.”

“There has been so much confusion on how to accurately measure the broader performance of this new asset class,” said Jared Tate, Founder of Digibyte, one of the core holdings in the BLOCK 30 Index. “BLOCK 30 is a major step forward towards getting an accurate gauge on the overall health of the market.”

BLOCK 30 Labs US is headquartered in San Diego, CA and includes a network of global blockchain technologists, computer scientists, economists, financial engineers, researchers and global media alumni from Yale, Harvard, Georgetown, Wharton, Duke, Stanford, UCSB and UCLA – working to improve the quality of coverage around blockchain and the digital trading markets. The BLOCK 30 Index was created in conjunction with Scow Research and Mark Grado Designs.

SubscriberWise Chief to US DOJ and President Trump: Evidence of Fraud and Cover-Up in Florida Genuine and Growing

Among a host of concerns in FL, AG Pam Bondi’s Office cancels meeting when request includes an on-the-record conference with a reporter and attorney request

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, November 16, 2018 / — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today allegations and concerns of a civil and criminal cover-up in the state of Florida.

According to SubscriberWise, the evidence is remarkable in scope and substantial in detail. The facts implicate with certainty corporate criminal fraud and state statuary violations including felony perjury, but also indicate what appears an attempt to cover the illicit behavior by local and state government officials who have consistently declined to respond to questions that include responses to critical evidence now missing from a Lee Port Authority Police public record, as one example.

Related: FL AG Bondi’s offices refuses to proceed with on-the-record conference call and offers no legal explanation for not proceeding: .

Additionally, based on prior conversations with an attorney at the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority — as well as documentation from the same office regarding written acknowledgement of improperly charged fees that may involve many other Florida residents and visitors ( — the main component of the cover-up appears to involve significant money for the state through various fees paid directly to government agencies (i.e. airport concession fees improperly charged for travelers not arriving to the state by air).

“I can now finally see the forest through the trees,” said David Howe, SubscriberWise founder and child identity protector. “And it’s truly remarkable when one examines the totality of evidence that I have obtained from official public sources. To be sure, the evidence that I’m referring involves sworn official records in the state of Florida, among other items that I believe the federal government will be interested to examine. I also have a much clearer picture of why elements of a criminal investigation were purposely not cited in the official police investigation; I would appreciate the DOJ to weigh-in on the evidence and concerns that I have related to the criminal investigation as well.

“To be more specific, it’s my strong position today that the documentation of fraud that I now have from these official records in the state of Florida, it’s so undeniable and overwhelming that those with a sworn duty to uphold the law have zero contrary evidence to refute the criminal activity that was alleged and documented from the beginning. And it appears from my perspective, involving years of criminal identity fraud investigations involving the US credit system as experience with crime and cover-up, that this evidence is being viewed an economic threat to a number of organizations that benefit from concealing the truth and facts.

“In other words, the economic interests are certainly high and pursuing due process simply doesn’t align with the financial incentives in a state where tourism, in particular, is so critical.

“Yes, it all seems remarkable and the allegations that I’m making are serious I certainly understand,” Howe added.

“But the profound and uncontroverted evidence simply can’t be denied; and that’s why I now believe there has been no engagement from state officials; that's why I'm going on the record with these serious allegations. Again, from my perspective, for many involved and aware of the evidence acknowledging the truth becomes a powerful indictment and that may explain what’s behind the duty-neglect happening today in Florida.

“Therefore, I’m respectfully urging a meeting with the US DOJ – and President Donald Trump who also happens to consider the state of Florida his home as do I for part of every year. Simply put, I have unequivocal and undeniable proof to substantiate every last detail of what I’m alleging and I want the opportunity to present it. And, whether or not I’m successful obtaining a meeting, I’ll continue this effort,” Howe confirmed. “I’ll never be daunted because I am armed with overwhelming proof — including audio, video, and photographic evidence — of unethical and illegal criminal activity that I argue is systematically being ignored by various Florida state agencies that otherwise have beached their sworn duty to act.

“For the record, I would welcome the Honorable Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to participate in any meeting, assuming the United States Department of Justice will take my allegations – and incredible mountain of evidence – seriously,” continued Howe. “However, I will respectfully continue to insist that any meeting be public and on-the-record since I have nothing to hide and everything critical to expose.

“The public must have the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth – so help me God,” Howe concluded.

Here Are The Top 8 Content Marketing Trends You Should Follow


Content marketing is a very important part of any digital marketing strategy.”

— Mary Ann Fasanella, CEO ACE


Here Are The Top 8 Content Marketing Trends You Should Follow

Content marketing is a strategic marketing approach focused on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content.

It aims to attract and retain a defined audience and ultimately, to drive profitable customer action.

Digital strategies for a law firm have evolved significantly. Here are some content marketing trends which are most important for law firms that you could follow:

Analytics Marketing

Digital marketing for law firms is no more a tool; it has become a part of life. It allows prospects and clients to find the information they seek quickly. Email and social media enable law firms to connect and engage directly with their targeted audience without relying on intermediaries.

Law firms can now collect information on digital interactions with their prospects and clients to glean actionable insights into which marketing and business development strategies are providing a high return on investment.

SEO plays a major role in who and how fast people can view your content. Law firms that have content that follow the best SEO practices will results in a higher spot on the search engine listings, resulting in more clicks than if your site was stuck on the 10th page.

Paid Media

'Paid media' or 'social advertising' is becoming a very effective tool for law firms. Social networks like Facebook and LinkedIn provide law firms a platform to promote their page to their targeted audience. Facebook, for instance, allows law firms to upload a list of email addresses of current and prospective clients, then creates a list of similar people based on various factors. It is called Facebook custom audience. To know more about this click: . LinkedIn also has come out with a feature that has similar functionality.

Integrated Campaigns

Rather than market an entire law firm or even a practice area, these firms are creating campaigns around "hot topics" that they know their clients and prospects are interested in. In many instances, firms create microsites(or blogs) to provide focus and thought leadership to their target audiences.

These businesses are also developing a content strategy around each campaign to determine the type of content they will use for it. Once the content and platform are ready, firms can create a plan to promote the site and its content and make sure that they measure the results carefully.

Leverage Automation

Automate every task imaginable, including functions related to creating, publishing and promoting content. Let’s say someone visits your legal-blog and signs up for regular updates; automatically they could receive a personalized response from the managing partner or a lawyer in a specific department.

Depending on the client’s response, a series of automated ‘if-this-then-that’ (IFTT) follow-up can be triggered. Automation is slowly becoming an integral part of law firm marketing.

Dynamic Content

Dynamic content is content that you create once, but it changes according to the audience viewing it. The dynamic material in the form of images, text or offers can be replaced as per consumer with the help of a variable element inserted in the content. It helps save time and money.

It is an easy and affordable solution which can be very useful for smaller law firms. For example, company templates are automatically personalized with individual employee details to ensure consistent and accurate information. Some of the tools used are Clio, Templafy, etc.

Update and Refresh Old Content

Re-writing or updating old articles or content is a simpler process. It takes less time than creating new content from scratch. Try and find old material which can be re-written or tweaked a little to give it a fresh look and make in evergreen.

Go Deeper with In-Depth White Papers

Sometimes legal topics need more than 600 words to be accurately and helpfully covered. For these heavier-duty issues, you would want to set aside the blog and look at creating a white paper- up to 1,500 words.

Deep dive into a topic, such as Totten trusts. You could explore complex issues and incorporate insightful data and statistics, giving your readers a bit more to chew on than a blog post and showing the real depth of your knowledge in that particular area.

Future-Proof Your Content

Most companies publish some time-sensitive content, which trends for a few weeks or months or is applicable only for a short duration. They get old and lose interest very fast. Try and post most of your content which is evergreen, meaning it should stand the test of time.

For this, ask yourself, " Will this content be relevant after a year from now?"

Call Us Today

The team at Advisory Concept Evolvers knows all the tricks of the trade when it comes to content marketing for law firms. Make sure your content is clear, factual and comprehensive.

Keep it simple and to the point. If you are looking to follow the latest content marketing trends to make your law firm search engine optimized, contact one of our digital marketing experts at 215-510-2167.

Diligent research by Bruce Wood of Woodshed Art Auctions propels Gainsborough oil portrait study to $103,125 at auction

Oil portrait study by Thomas Gainsborough (Br., 1727-1788) for The Honourable Mrs. Graham ($103,125).

Wood’s infra-red photography revealed a complex and energetic drawing hidden beneath the surface of the paint.

Oil on canvas painting by a follower of Edward Hopper (Am., 1882-1967), titled Office at Night ($7,500).

Tempera on paper attributed to Claude Monet (Fr., 1840-1926), titled Winter Landscape ($3,900).

Oil on canvas landscape attributed to Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corort (Fr., 1796-1875) ($3,750).

What was initially thought to be an ordinary copy ended with a six-figure finish at the firm’s November 1st fine art auction held online and in Franklin, Mass.

FRANKLIN, MASS., UNITED STATES, November 16, 2018 / — FRANKLIN, Mass. – Diligent research by Bruce Wood of Woodshed Art Auctions propelled what was initially believed to be an ordinary copy of a painting to a six-figure finish at the firm’s November 1st fine art auction titled Gainsborough, Monet, Warhol & Friends. The painting was an oil portrait study by Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) titled The Honourable Mrs. Graham.

Wood’s examination of the under-drawing and comparison with Gainsborough’s drawing style led to the conclusion that the painting was a precursor to the finished work, which hangs in the Scottish National Galleries in Edinburgh. Still, to be safe, Wood called it an attribution for the sale, but savvy bidders were convinced. The final price, with buyer’s premium, was $103,125.

The painting, in a 40 ¼ inch by 55 inch frame, was in fine condition, though it did show signs of age, furthering the notion it was a study. The cracking was consistent with portraits of the period, including ones in Edinburgh’s National Gallery. Wood’s infra-red photography revealed a complex and energetic drawing hidden beneath the surface of the paint, a convincing revelation.

The selling price outperformed the pre-sale estimate of $75,000-$100,000, cementing the notion that the painting, perhaps Gainsborough’s most intricate and recognizable compositions and one of the finest examples of 18th century portraiture, was indeed by the famed British artist. Wood’s discovery led to an examination of another Gainsborough in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

But his investigation wasn’t limited to stateside research. Wood hopped a flight to Edinburgh to view The Honourable Mrs. Graham up close and personal, and perform infra-red photography there in the gallery. What he learned led to a deeper understanding of Gainsborough’s working methods. The artist was very precise when rendering fine fabrics, jewels, hair and accoutrements.

The hair in the painting was of particular interest to Wood. The infra-red technology led to his discovery of how he rendered the sitter’s coiffures in such a dynamic manner – an underlying sketch in black chalk. When highlighted with paint, the quick, vertical strokes of black chalk added to the dynamism of the sitter’s fashionable up-do and added depth to the static portrait.

The technique prompted further investigation by Wood, who found similar under-drawing technique not just on the painting in Scotland but also Gainsborough’s works titled Haymaker and Sleeping Girl, both done in the 1780s and now housed in Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.

Gainsborough was also adept at drawing elegant hands. In The Honourable Mrs. Graham, the hands extend from an already elongated wrist and end seamlessly into her gown. The elongated, clutching fingers enhance the elegance of the sitter and pronounce the dainty features of his elite, sophisticated clientele. An infra-red photo revealed quickly sketched hands in the under-drawing.

The variation on backgrounds is probably the clearest indication that the work sold was a preparation sketch. The background of the exhibited version in Scotland is a quintessential Gainsborough Rococo landscape, with an undulating, verdant hill and exquisitely rendered trees that would lay the groundwork for British Romanticism in the subsequent decades to come.

The study, however, displays a more somber (but equally striking) tone. The bucolic hillscape is replaced with a seemingly opaque mass of darkness, capped by an eerie sunset, providing a stark contrast to the delicate, pale white Mrs. Graham. It is reminiscent to the background in a 1759 Gainsborough Self-Portrait, and adds a dynamic to the rigid rules of 18th century portraiture.

Interestingly, the subject in the painting was born Mary Cathcart, the daughter of the Scottish ambassador to Russia. She spent her early years at the Court of Catherine the Great before her marriage to Thomas Graham in 1774. She was one of the most beautiful women of her time and Gainsborough, smitten with her himself, painted her multiple times, most often from memory.

Other paintings in Gainsborough, Monet, Warhol & Friends also performed well. They included:

• An oil on canvas painting by a follower of Edward Hopper (American, 1882-1967), titled Office at Night, artist signed and nicely housed in a 28 inch by 34 ¼ inch frame ($7,500).
• A tempera on paper work attributed to Claude Monet (French, 1840-1926), titled Winter Landscape, artist signed and verso stamped Collection Simon in Paris, France ($3,900).
• An oil on canvas landscape painting attributed to Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (French, 1796-1875), likely in the original frame measuring 23 ¾ inches by 26 ¾ inches ($3,750).
• An oil on canvas painting attributed to John Whorf (American, 1903-1959), titled Woman Reading, artist signed and with an auction label on upper stretcher bar ($1,250).
