Working with Sarah and her team and is like bringing in your own, personal digital news crew. With a focus on creating engaging video (produced and real-time) content, Sarah also creates compelling and interactive social content in the form of written, photography and audio.

Sarah works as a digital correspondent. That means she helps your brand by telling your stories as a credible, third party. Brands own all of the content she and her team create, but, she also shares the content she loves to create with her awesome online community.

From one-on-one behind-the-scenes interviews with executives, like John Chambers, Cisco Systems (creating some of the most shared content during #CiscoLive) or celebrity red carpets, like #TRANS4M fundraiser (where taking things digital helped them meet their fundraising goal before the event was over), this content gets real results. It's because Sarah is not only an on-air talent, she brings social and digital strategy, talent, editing and publishing with her company Sevans Strategy.

She has the privilege of working with companies, like PayPal and Cox Communications, and, often, partners with public relations and media firms as a resource for clients.

When should you work with Sarah:

  • Campaign launch
  • Live event
  • Trade Show
  • Large conference
  • Product announcement
  • Sponsor a red carpet
  • Host of a web show or series

Each client that works with Sarah gets a unique experience. No two videos or tweets are alike. Content is created with your key messaging and objectives, but gets a unique perspective from someone who is truly curious, passionate and loves to celebrate great stories.

Sarah previously worked with a local crisis center to raise more than $161,000 in three weeks via social media and is proud to be a team member of the Guinness Book World Record holding #beatcancer.

IFTTT can now make your entire life more productive with launch of "Do" apps for notes, camera and home automation

IFTTT, the "put the internet to work for you company," just released three new apps for Android and iOS, powered by none other than IFTTT

  1. Do Camera
  2. Do Note
  3. Do Button
All three apps allow you to take recipes that you (or others) created in IFTTT and group them together by functionality. It also simplifies how many things you can do from within a single app. For example, in Do Note I signed in using my existing IFTTT account, added a few recipes, and now from one app, I can:
  • email myself something (right to Gmail)
  • create a calendar entry
  • add a post to Buffer
  • track work hours in a spreadsheet
  • remind myself to do something...
  • or create something wonderfully unique for me/my team.

This is one of those rare, bite-off-more-than-you-can-chew efficiency opportunities that really can make you more productive if you invest in the process. There are unlimited ways to utilize these new apps and, because it is overwhelming, I'll just touch on Do Note. (If you're using any of these new apps, share your tips with me!)

While "note" makes you think it's yet another note-taking app, it's not. I'm an avid Evernote user and Note syncs directly with Evernote (and a host of other apps) to create to-do lists, new notes (of course) and other things I haven't even figured out yet.

The user interface is simple. Very simple. And Elegant. And easy.


Here's a quick overview of Do Camera:

Do Camera empowers you to create your own personalized camera with just a tap. Save time and share your experiences with Recipes that connect your camera to Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, and hundreds of Channels you use every day.


And here's the Do Button:

Do Button empowers you to create your own personalized button with just a tap. Save time and control the world around you with Recipes that connect your button to Google Drive, #theinternetofeverything in your home and hundreds of Channels you use every day.


Of course, you could add all of these tasks in any one of the new apps, but I like the idea of segmenting them out based on function. That way, when I go to Do Note, I know that I'm accessing all of my recipes and actions related to work and the same for Do Button and Do Camera.

Whew! My head is spinning with all of the possibilities. What about you?
