Bill Lerner On How to Optimize Business for Millennial Consumers

By Bill Lerner

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 26, 2017 / New York based CEO of iPark, Bill Lerner understands the nuances that endear brands to today’s most important consumer group, the Millennials, born between the years 1980 and 2000. Nurturing business cultures that engage this massive collection of consumers requires an optimization strategy embracing accurate, informative, and interactive content, ensuring the corporate voice is heard everywhere that matters. Increasingly, that tends to be online, but this discerning audience still likes a “bricks and mortar” touchstone as well.

One of the biggest factors shaping marketing strategies designed to hone a corporate brand into a preferred pick is that of philanthropy. A Nov. 13, 2016 New York Times article focused on the Newman’s Own brand label redesign to emphasize that 100 percent of profits go to charity. The article continues to underscore the message, noting that, “Millennials especially have demonstrated a propensity to favor companies with a generous mission.” Reinforcing the significance of that concept, the Deloitte Millennial Survey 2017 found 74 percent of these astute consumers believe businesses have the potential to solve challenges, but just 59 percent feel that corporate leaders are acting accordingly, leaving a gap for observant organizations to step in and win approval of this influential audience. Keeping brands honest is a hallmark of this digital native cohort, with 70 percent compelled to share feedback about a brand experience, good and bad, via social media.

The largest generation in history, the group packs a one trillion-dollar purchasing punch according to a May 16, 2017 Wall Street Journal article. Impacting everything from more casual dress adopted by financial advisors to a simplified communication style across the board, product and service purveyors are toeing the style lines set by the age-defined culture to engage pocketbooks, paychecks, and online posts. All of the pieces of a brand’s content strategy must paint a picture of authenticity that delivers, making lives easier, more enjoyable, and more entertaining. In agreement with an April 21, 2017 Forbes article citing three key principles for optimizing strategic marketing aimed at earning customer loyalty, Bill Lerner highlights the need for presenting a core idea, filling an unmet need, and developing a culture paralleling current markets as essential items for a relevant business.

Bill Lerner applied lessons taught by his father in the parking industry to his contemporary parking empire, changing, adapting, and innovating as a respected leader and mentor. President and CEO of Imperial Parking Systems, updating to the iPark brand to reflect technological awareness, Mr. Lerner relies on four decades of experience reaching for higher standards and improving the customer journey, both in business and charitable causes. His Billy4Kids program has provided more than 4,000 pairs of shoes to children in developing countries to prevent diseases contracted by bare feet. Billy Lerner is also recognized for his work by the Annual Edajo Gives Hope Gala and St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children.

Nick Kohlschreiber on Internet Marketing Technology Trends of 2017

By Nick Kohlschreiber

ORANGE COUNTY, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 26, 2017 / Southern California’s renowned entrepreneur and internet marketing specialist, Nick Kohlschreiber, found success early thanks to his knowledge of utilizing revolutionary technology to increase digital consumer traffic. Now, as the owner of a media company based in Newport Beach, Kohlschreiber continues to improve upon these techniques, and share them with others to allow for the organic proliferation of new and small businesses. Recently, the digital expert shared new tech trends that he believes will further evolve the strategies of innovative marketers.

Emerging as a concept in 2016 was cognitive marketing, or the use of technology that mimics the human brain in order to improve performance. As the advantages of cognitive-based systems continue to be revealed, Kohlschreiber predicts a dramatic rise in their use. For example, when consumers appear to be exhibiting purchasing patterns that are very different from the norm, this technology would be much better at finding the behavioral characteristics that cause the unexpected actions. Marketers using cognitive software will have the capability to redesign messages so that they are different, and relevant, to each consumer. By using massive computing power and large data sets, these systems will effectively be able to identify unmet and unstated customer needs, providing brands with unprecedented promotion and product guidance.

Nick Kohlschreiber continued to discuss the shift from siloed channel strategies to cross-channel engagement. Traditional silo marketing promotes a different message across each distribution network, a method that has resulted in confused consumer opinions of brands. Throughout 2017, Kohlschreiber expects to see more companies become truly omnichannel and deliver one message that is shared across all outlets, offline and online. In today’s era of mass media consumption, there is little point in advertising to change perception across one medium while not simultaneously doing so on the others. While it has been predicted for some time now, it seems that an integration of marketing automation with ad buying technologies may also come to fruition in 2017. The benefit of doing so is a massively increased ability to leverage data between web, email, and ad platforms in order to improve both performance and the customer experience. Compiling this data will allow marketers to garner a single view of their customer, making it easier to share attributes, interests, and behaviors between platforms.

Entrepreneur Nick Kohlschreiber specializes in creative marketing solutions, and together with his team of experts allows for new and small businesses to fully take advantage of their online presence in order to convert customers and spur growth. An enthusiast for originality, he believes there is always room for innovation, and urges employees and clients alike to “Think Big, Go Far.” From simple document preparation to a complete online multimedia driven business development strategy, Kohlschreiber strives to further the connections between small businesses and the modern communication platforms that run society.

INVESTOR ALERT – Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Reminds Investors of Class Action Against Barrick Gold Corporation (ABX) & Lead Plaintiff Deadline: July 10, 2017

By Bronstein, Gewirtz and Grossman, LLC

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 26, 2017 / Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Barrick Gold Corporation (“Barrick” or the “Company”) (NYSE: ABX) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Barrick securities between February 16, 2017 and April 24, 2017, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/abx.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

On April 24, 2017, Barrick revised its full year guidance, stating that “[f]ull-year gold production is now expected to be 5.3-5.6 million ounces, down from our previous range of 5.6-5.9 million ounces.” Barrick credited about two-thirds of the decrease to the planned sale of 50% percent of its Veladero mine. The Company also revised Veladero-specific guidance, forecasting full-year production at Veladero of 630,000-730,000 ounces, compared to its previously-issued guidance of 770,000-830,000 ounces. Following this news, Barrick stock dropped $2.15 per share, or 11.3%, to close at $16.89 on April 25, 2017.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose: (1) that the pipes and safety systems at the Veladero mine were not robust enough to prevent gold-bearing solution spills; (2) that, consequently, Argentinian authorities would restrict the addition of cyanide to the Veladero mine’s heap leach facility and require remedial work; (3) that these developments would impact (and were impacting) the production capacity of the Veladero mine; (4) as a result, Barrick’s Veladero mine production guidance and total gold production guidance were overstated; and (5) that, due to the above mentioned reasons, Defendants’ statements about Barrick’s business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to review a copy of the Complaint, you can visit the firm’s site: http://www.bgandg.com/abx, or you may contact Peretz Bronstein, Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484.

RTG Joins Landowner Backed Consortium Proposal in Respect of the Copper-Gold Panguna Project in Bougainville Announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange and Toronto Stock Exchange

RTG Joins Landowner Backed Consortium Proposal in Respect of the Copper-Gold Panguna Project in Bougainville Announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange and Toronto Stock Exchange

ANNOUNCEMENT TO THE AUSTRALIAN SECURITIES EXCHANGE AND TORONTO STOCK EXCHANGE

26 JUNE 2017

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR

DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Subiaco, Western Australia (FSCwire) – RTG Mining Inc. (ASX:RTG, TSX:RTG) (“RTG” or “the Company”) confirms recent press statements that it has been nominated as the development partner with the joint venture company of the Special Mining Lease Osikaiyang Landowners Association (“SMLOLA”) and Central Exploration Pty Ltd (“Central”) in their proposal with respect to the redevelopment of the 1.5B tonne[i] Copper-Gold Panguna Project located in the Central Region of the island of Bougainville, within the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea (“PNG”). RTG has subscribed US$0.75M into Central for a minority position in Central.[ii] The proposal being led by the SMLOLA is a landowner initiative and will be subject to the success or otherwise of the SMLOLA in securing a role in the redevelopment of the mine.

This proposal is also, ultimately conditional upon the support of the Autonomous Bougainville Government (“ABG”) and others. RTG appreciates the trust and support the SMLOLA has shown the Company, recognising the community engagement track record and the development experience of the RTG management team, having successfully developed seven new mines in five different countries. RTG makes no representation that the SMLOLA led consortium proposal will be successful. Both the show cause notice issued by the ABG to Bougainville Copper Limited (“BCL”) in connection with the previous exploration permit, which expired in September 2016 and the application for extension of the term of the licence are still under review by the ABG. The ABG has expressed its support for BCL

The members of the SMLOLA are the owners of the customary land which is the subject of the old BCL operated Panguna open pit mine area. In implementing the Bougainville Peace Agreement, a change in the mining law in 2014 resulted in the PNG ownership of mineral rights being expunged and the customary landowners becoming owners of the minerals within their land. Accordingly, the SMLOLA own the minerals of the old Panguna Mine and are in control of access to their land, namely the Panguna pit. The SMLOLA has stated that it will not grant access to their lands to BCL, a position they have held and expressed for an extended period of time. The Autonomous Region of Bougainville has gone through transformative changes over the last couple of years and has recognised the reopening of the Panguna Mine is an important economic initiative for all Bougainvilleans, which is supported strongly by the SMLOLA.

RTG will fully respect any rights of BCL and has agreed to act as the development partner should the SMLOLA be successful in their proposal. RTG believes that the SMLOLA led consortium could provide a constructive and valuable contribution to resolving outstanding issues between all parties, with their proposal including the development of Panguna on a staged basis, starting at an initial targeted 15Mtpa plant size before then optimising the processing plant, subject to completion of a Feasiblity Study. This will enhance the prospects of a successful referendum on Independence for Bougainville and much earlier access to financial rewards for all Bougainvilleans. There are strong parallels between this proposal and the redevelopment of the Masbate Gold Mine in the Phillipines, which was successfully developed by the RTG Management team. The proposal also includes a Bougainville Redevelopment Fund to assist the landowners and ABG in implementing much needed social and infrastructure programs to enhance the livelihoods of all those in and around Panguna.

RTG’s three largest long term shareholders, whose publicly reported parent company net worth is in the order of US$30 billion, have expressed support for entering into the Panguna redevelopment proposal should it be successful.
