Watch Lehigh Valley with Love’s Video As Part of the #BacktoBethlehem Campaign!

The Bethlehem Chamber, Downtown Bethlehem Association, Southside Arts District and Community Action Development Corporation of Bethlehem have come together to launch the #BacktoBethlehem campaign as their counties move to the Yellow Phase.

This campaign is all about preparing both the merchants and the community for getting back to business. “We want to make sure our business community is equipped with all the information and supplies they need in order to safely re-open.” said Tammy Wendling, Downtown Bethlehem Association Manager.

In addition to making sure merchants are ready, Missy Hartney, Southside Arts District Downtown Manager says “it’s extremely important to make sure the community knows what expectations there will be for them as customers as well as making them feel comfortable with coming back out to support these small businesses.”

Bethlehem merchants have been asked to take the Vow of the Valley, launched by the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. Those who sign the online vow, will receive a “Back to Bethlehem” graphic to use on social media and their website. This will let the community know these businesses took a pledge to protect their health and safety during this re-opening phase.

In addition to the Vow of the Valley, this task force partnered with Lehigh Valley with Love Media to create a video encouraging the community to come out and support Bethlehem businesses in the yellow phase.

As seen in the video, DLP Real Estate Capital and South Carolina based, SC Health generously donated 10,000 masks to the Bethlehem business community to ensure the safety of both employees and customers.

Christmas Tree Toss for Charity Returns to Bethlehem on December 15, 2018

BETHLEHEM, PA (November 27, 2018) – The fun and festive Bethlehem Christmas Toss for Charity will be held on December 15 at 12 p.m. at More Miles Automotive, 1458 Stefko Blvd., Bethlehem, PA.

The original event was first held in 2002 when then Meineke Car Care owner Peter Kearns challenged Mike DeCrosta, currently of More Miles Automotive, to a contest. The resulting yearly tradition became something of a bizarre, but wildly popular, way to celebrate the holiday season. Peter Kearns passed away in 2016.

The event originally ended in 2013 after Kearns retired, but was revived in 2015 at the behest of fans and former participants.

“Pete is the one who came up with this wonderful idea and made sure that it was always in the spirit of raising money for charity,” DeCrosta said. “We want to continue to honor him by holding the event in his name.”

More Miles Automotive, in conjunction with Lehigh Valley with Love Media, will host the ‘Peter Kearns Memorial Christmas Tree Toss’ with proceeds going to Turning Point of the Lehigh Valley. The public is encouraged to attend and throw Christmas trees for distance in an effort to not only raise money, but also to vie for prizes from Molly’s Irish Grille & Sports Pub, Lehigh Valley Sports Tickets, Machs Gute Pub and Lehigh Pizza, among others.

Local dignitaries will also be invited to attend and participate in the event. More than 50 attendees threw Christmas trees a variety of distances last year, including children, who have their own mini tree to throw.

Donations of $5 per throw are encouraged. However, donations of all amounts are accepted and can be made in person at the event or by mailing a donation payable to Turning Point of the Lehigh Valley ℅ More Miles Automotive 1458 Stefko Blvd., Bethlehem, PA.

RSVP on the Facebook Event.

What’s Your Finstagram? You Have a Finstagram, Right?

You’ll never keep up with all of the social media trends. No one will. It’s not something anyone should be tasked with or expected to do, to be honest. Besides, once a solid social media trend can be identified, it’s already old and worn out by the time it gets around to mainstream media outlets (See: List Articles.)

So, now that you feel at least a little bit better knowing that you’re not the only person, including social media professionals, who aren’t up on the latest social media trends, let’s give ou a new one: Finstagrams.

Instagram Launches Automatic Spam and Offensive Comments Filter for Your Accounts

Spam is annoying, but, we always like to look at comments flooding beneath your pictures as a sign that you’re doing something right. I mean, people are taking notice of your content.

Of course, that superficial flattery really only lasts so long until you’re pulling out your hair over having to get rid of spammy or offensive comments.

Hey, Instagram to the rescue!

How ‘Normal’ is your Business’ Social Media Activity? Let’s Look…

Being “normal” is boring. We know that. In fact, our whole approach to our clients’ social media, videos, and other marketing initiatives is to stand out from the “normal.”

However, understanding what other businesses are doing, especially ones that are similar to yours, is an effective way of taking stock in just how healthy your social media and other marketing practices are holding up. 

Instagram Adds Live Streaming Feature

Ready for another social media platform to “go live” from? Instagram recently announced that it is rolling out a live streaming feature included in Version 10.2 as another way for users to share their experiences.

What was once seemingly a novelty, “going live” has become increasingly commonplace on platforms like Facebook. Moms share school concerts as they happen, annoying friends share their food updates, and you probably get to see a lot of babies.

Instagram’s New Updates Emulate Snapchat

Instagram will begin rolling out an update that will add some very Snapchat-like features in coming weeks.

Of course, Instagram isn’t saying publicly that they are copying one of Snapchat’s best features, but they are. And, hey, there’s nothing inherently wrong with that. Social media platforms have always borrowed ideas from each other in an effort to stay relevant.
