CauseTalk Radio Ep03: Online Cause Marketing, The Lorax, More on Pinterest

In this episode of CauseTalk Radio, Megan and I talk (online) platforms, Pinterest (again) and (motion) pictures.

  • I'm bullish on Boston's online content service Swoop and explain how it might be used for cause marketing.

  • Pinterest is social media's golden child but will legal concerns over terms of use preclude passionate pinners from sticking around?

  • Megan talks about how major motion pictures are turning to cause marketing to launch new films, establish co-branding partnerships and increase promotional reach. But for the new Dr. Seuss movie, The Lorax, environmentalists are crying foul. Hear all this and more in today's episode!
