Darius LuxSocial Media Done for You, Strategy
Challenge: To identify and establish Darius Lux within a new niche in order to connect with a larger targeted fan base from new markets. When Darius approached Cyber PR® he was a touring musician with a new video he hoped to receive press for. However, things weren’t taking off until he revealed to us that he had recently began a gluten free lifestyle and as a result was feeling in top mental and physical shape. We proposed the idea of pitching him to gluten-free and health & wellness blogs. At ﬁrst Darius couldn’t understand how being gluten-free could tie into his music but what he didn’t realize was by bringing this niche to life we connected him with a targeted niche that changed the path of his musical career forever.
Strategy: We pitched Darius to niche appropriate bloggers who were intrigued by his story and wanted to interview and feature his gluten free lifestyle as a touring musician. They wrote about gluten-free recipes and invited him to write guest blog posts telling his story. One of the blogs dubbed him “the gluten-free rock star,” and from there many more followed suit. A niche was born.
Results: Darius was invited to play before an L.A. Dodgers game and also to play in Phoenix AZ, Finding his niche opened Darius to an entirely new marketplace and fan base. We also secured over 100 features including blog reviews, Internet radio plays, podcast inclusions & video placements.
“I now have a growing tour base and this is the result of niche based target marketing. The lesson here is: All things are connected if we allow them to follow their course. Everything Ariel coached me through has not only proved effective but has also become the new way.”
Dr. Kent GustavsonCyber PR, Your Signature Story
Dr. Kent Gustavson
Award winning author, speaker, educator, owner of a publishing company and musician
Challenge: To establish Dr. Kent Gustavson, author of “Blind But Now I See” the unofficial Doc Watson biography, as a thought-leader in the literary community.
Strategy: By highlighting the many intriguing aspects of Kent: Musician, author, educator and speaker, rather than just his product (the book) we were able to identify and approach several blog, podcast and online radio niches, garnering feature placements on an array of online outlets, including music blogs, book review /book club blogs, and geo-targeted blogs.
Results: After as a result of a stronger online brand was selected to participate in TEDX. His talk “We Are Alive” recounted the impact of a near-fatal tragedy that reframed the importance of risk-taking in the context of creativity. Participating in TEDx solidified Kent’s status as a thought leader. We also placed 69 features for Kent – stories, book reviews, interviews, and guest-blogging opportunities across the net.
“Cyber PR® actually made me aware that I am my own personal brand. This had never been clear to me before. One of the results I had from my campaign was delivering a TEDx Talk on creativity underneath my personal “Kent.” brand that Cyber PR® helped construct.”
- Dr. Kent Gustavson
Ester NicholsonBranding, Cyber PR
Challenge: Ester came to Cyber PR already a successful thought leader. However, she did not have an online presence to match her offline profile. That’s where our team came in.
Strategy: We expanded Ester’s audience by pitching her to hundreds of new media makers, including book review, positivity, addiction recovery and women empowerment blogs. We also coached her how to more effectively use her Twitter & Facebook profiles.
Results: Numerous book reviews, blog features, and an ongoing guest posting opportunity on Addiction.org, which attracts 50,000 – 100,000 visits per month. Overtime the potential for Ester is huge; as a result of long term content strategy, she was able to translate her already successful real world brand into a strong web presence, connect with her fans and establish herself as a thought leader within the online addiction recovery community.
“Cyber PR® level of excellence, attention, knowledge and professionalism helped my book and business explode into the social media world in a way that would have been impossible otherwise. My management team and I consider Cyber PR® our friends because they have taken a personal interest in my success. I will always return to them again and again. They are now a part of the Soul Recovery team. Thank you Cyber PR® for doing only what you can do.”
Crystal WatersSocial Media Done for You, Strategy
International iconic dance music diva, wrote and sung “Gypsy Woman” (She’s Homeless), need we say more?
Challenge: Re-introducing Crystal Waters to the Dance and EDM (electronic dance music) blog community, build loyalty, and spark conversations among her existing fan base.
Strategy: Leveraging a #1 single on the Billboard Dance/ Club Play chart (“Oh Mama Hey’) and 24 years of history charting singles and club dates to re-introducing Crystal Waters to the Dance and EDM (Electronic Dance Music) blog community. To increase the loyalty of Crystal’s existing fan base, we created a new, thematic monthly newsletter tracking down her subscribers Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin accounts and adding her list members first names to her newsletter database.
Results: Two months into Crystal’s 4 month campaign, we have 59 placements on music blogs in the dance, house, EDM and jazz genres (the latter supporting Crystal’s unreleased Jazz single ‘The Great City’). Crystal’s first newsletter had a 26% open rate (a very high open average). Knowing more about her fans and touching then across channels is the perfect way to bond her more tightly with them.

You’ve Facebooked your fingers numb, tweeted till you’re ticked and you have the blogging blues because you just can’t seem to gain real traction.
You already have too much on your plate to handle the swarms of people making requests and your social media queues are piling up. Because of this you feel constantly overwhelmed when you think of your social media.
