Auckland Multimedia Content Marketing & Digital Brand Visibility Service Updated

Traditional advertising uses a “flood” strategy, putting information about a company in front of as many people as possible. The recently expanded content authoring services offered by Media Plan take a different approach, by putting information in front of just the right people.

More information about marketing strategies and professionally authored content can be found at

Media Plan’s newlty updated service promotes engaging content about brands to online users who are already looking for a similar product or service. This strategy has several advantages over traditional advertising, including improving brands ranking in the Google search results, and increasing the number of websites that link back to their pages.

Brands do not have to create any of their own content: Media Plan’s professional writers will craft unique blogs, podcasts, videos, slideshows, infographics, and more, all filled with helpful information about their products or services. The content will all be available for clients to approve, modify, or suggest changes to, before it is available to the public.

This strategy helps clients to enhance their search rankings by boosting their brand authority. Every piece of content the service places on a high-traffic site contains a link back to the client’s pages, letting the Google search algorithm know those pages are useful, trustworthy, and relevant.

When used as a long-term strategy, Media Plan’s content marketing can help local businesses to rank near the top of the search results for even the most competitive keywords. A long-term campaign will begin by focusing on highly specific, hyper-local keywords to build a brand’s online authority, then branch out to help them rank for a wide variety of keywords, across a larger geographic area.

Media Plan’s content marketing service has been shown to help build better relationships between brands and consumers, by providing content that shoppers actually want to see. While traditional advertising is often ignored, people intentionally seek branded content to learn about new products, services, and options.

A satisfied client said, “The Safety Risk Alliance is really pleased with the new website. Visitors find it easy to navigate and contact us for safety audit advice. The monthly Media Distribution service is an excellent service to give our business regular and extensive coverage. Highly recommended.”

CloudZen Partners DDoS Protection & Mitigation 2022 Procurement Service Expands

CloudZen Partners’ expanded DDoS protection and mitigation procurement services present businesses with individualized, multi-tiered packages that can limit the impact in the eventuality of an attack. Packages offered by the firm include the management of damage as well as the creation of a robust defense for vulnerable systems.

For more information please visit

With this latest service expansion, CloudZen Partners offers businesses security against an increasingly common form of cyber attack. DDoS infiltrations can deny users access to a system, crash websites, and destroy cloud-based data.

According to a recent report in Forbes, businesses suffered 50% more cyber attacks in 2021 than in 2020. The trend seems to be continuing in 2022 and early analysis indicates that a majority of businesses do not have adequate security measures in place.

One of the most widespread forms of cyber attacks is DDoS. In this attack, hackers are able to flood a system from multiple entry points, effectively crashing the system.

The expert team at CloudZen Partners works with over two hundred top IT providers to pair businesses with high-quality DDoS protection and mitigation services.

Before connecting businesses with providers, the firm will perform a comprehensive system audit and assessment to determine the solutions and services required. Once providers are selected to meet these requirements, the firm acts as a point of contact between the business and provider to insure fluid, cost-effective service.

The DDoS protection and mitigation procurement service now offered by CloudZen Partners is customized to the needs of the client business. More details are available at

A spokesperson for the company said: “Ultimately, not all companies are outfitted with the staff or expertise to tackle DDoS alone. Often, the best protection and mitigation strategy involves working with experts. By outsourcing to an external company, you’ll gain peace of mind that your security is in safe hands.”

The popular essential oil website has published a guide on essential oils for emotional support and well-being. This guide includes information about essential oils, emotions, emotional concerns, and homemade recipes that can be used to address these concerns.

The guide starts by explaining that essential oils can be highly potent, volatile, and aromatic compounds extracted from plants. These oils can be extracted from leaves, stems and roots, bark, flowers, and other parts of plants.

Essential oils can be used topically and aromatically for a variety of purposes, including skincare, house cleaning, and emotional support. According to the guide, essential oils are commonly used aromatically to support emotional health.

The mind-body connection is discussed in the guide. Anything that affects the mind will also have an effect on the body. Stress and anxiety can have a negative impact on the body’s health, as will being anxious or stressed.

California Scholarships For Business Owner Students Making Under 100K: Update

College Planning Experts has announced an expansion of its college planning support and financial aid assistance services for California business owner university students making less than $100,000 a year.

To learn more, attend a free college planning workshop now:

The expansion comes as the average cost for four years of university ranges between $80,000 and $250,000, making it prohibitive for many students. At the same time, millions in public and private scholarships go unclaimed each year, highlighting an important missed opportunity for students across social and economic levels.

Striving to connect California business owner students with a scholarship or grant program that meets their needs, College Planning Experts has created a financial planning solution that includes everything from financial aid form preparation to strategic college funding.

The company helps students submit their FAFSA and CSS profiles accurately and with all the needed information, correctly state their income and assets, and prepare their forms for the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. Students will also receive financial aid coaching connecting them with the grant or scholarship opportunities available for their particular income level.

As part of the company’s strategic college funding solution, CPE helps students choose between multiple financial aid options while protecting their retirement goals and avoiding untenable payments.

With the latest announcement, College Planning Experts continues to provide flexible support and assistance for university students in California and beyond.

“College Planning Experts are the leaders in college planning help and are the best college consultants in Southern California,” said a company spokesperson. “We’re committed to providing the guidance that parents and students need to get into the schools that are right for them.”

Founded in 2004, the company has helped students qualify for financial aid for athletes, artists, business owners, minorities, and other grants and scholarship programs.

A satisfied student said: “It was an absolute pleasure working with Irene and the College Planning Experts team. As the first in my family to go to college straight out of high school, aspects of the College application and financial aid process were difficult, but they helped me every step of the way. Irene pushed me to write the best essays that I could and to constantly strive to improve my ACT score, complete with resources to do so.”

Space Cowboy Charity Masquerade Ball to Launch on Oct. 28

AUSTIN, Texas – The EarthLight Foundation, New Worlds Institute, Foundation for the Future, and their partner Gaaays in Spaaace announced that the Space Cowboy Ball will blast off October 28 at the Grand Ballroom of the AT&T Conference Center in the heart of the University of Texas in Austin.

“What would you wear to a party on Mars in a hundred years?” This is the critical question answered by those attending the Ball on the Friday night before Halloween in Austin, Texas. A combination award dinner, masquerade Ball, concert, and dance party, the Ball raises the roof while raising awareness and funds for space education – with a focus on under-included groups.

“A. This is Austin, and weird is our watchword,” said EarthLight and Ball Founder Rick Tumlinson. “B. Nerds are actually super cool, and a rocking masquerade party is a great way for them to come out of the airlock; and C. It’s important to recognize the amazing science educators and others teaching and inspiring new generations to dream about building a better future, on the New Frontier of space. The Space Cowboy Ball does all of these – and it’s fun!”

Presentation of the Space Cowboy award is the event’s main thrust. Past winners include Jeff Bezos, who attended in person in 2018, Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin, and Luxembourg’s Deputy Prime Minister, Etienne Schneider, who accepted for his nation’s commitment to space development. Other awards include the Permission to Dream Award for Inspiration and Education – given to a teacher or educator who has transformed the lives of young people, and the Odyssey Award for Film/TV – first won by the science fiction drama “The Expanse.” This year will also see the first-ever presentation of the Odyssey Award for science fiction literature. Winners of all four awards are secret, and will be announced in the coming weeks – including some major celebrity surprises.

“I’ve worked for many years to help inspire and light the imaginations of artists and students here in Texas,” said Ball Co-Chair Karissa Winters. “Recognizing excellence in advancing this great cause is important,” she continued. “EarthLight stands for many of the good things we want to communicate to industry, educators, the media, and people in general, from hope, to caring for Earth, to exploration and access for all. The Ball gives us a chance to do that and to have a great time at the same time! I’m honored to be part of such a cool event!”

Featuring a multi-station Texas buffet, live music will be performed by star Austin musicians such as David Pulkingham, who has played with Bruce Springsteen, Robert Plant and Patty Griffin, and local legend Emily Grace – Clarke, backed by their band of top shelf professional Austin music stars, known for the night as the “Space Cowboys.” After the awards, the Ball transforms into the “StarDancer Saloon” blasting into a full DJ dance party co-sponsored by Gaaays in Spaaace, with celebrity DJ Chrispy spinning, while live artists paint, jugglers, aerialists and Start Wars storm troopers and other wild and beautiful cosplay models and dancers create a mood that one party goer dubbed akin to being like “Burning Man on a Rocketship.”

“The Ball is not just a party,” said Kim Macharia, Executive Director of the Space Prize, an advocacy and inclusion oriented charity, who is also Co-Hosting. “It represents our belief that space is for everyone, and that this isn’t some exclusive elitist field that is inaccessible to the everyday person. Art, music, hope, inclusion, and celebration are what NewSpace and New Worlds are all about.”

Ball tickets have been reduced from $350+ in years past to only $100 for early birds due to the challenges of a post-covid world and are available here:

The Ball is part of EarthLight’s two-day New Worlds Conference, which runs from Oct. 28-29 at the AT&T Executive Center in the heart of the University of Texas campus. The curated meeting is open to the public. It features astronauts, scientists, space policy experts, entrepreneurs, and investors who come together to talk about what they are doing to open space to humanity. The event also features artists, designers, inclusion and workforce development experts, and other great speakers.

Stay tuned for the amazing winners of the awards in the next weeks!

California FAFSA Application Tips 2023-2024 For High Net Worth Students Launched

College Planning Experts has launched a series of workshops and resources to help students across California save on college costs. The company’s expertise can be particularly useful to students who believe that their family’s income is too high and are discouraged to apply for federal assistance.

To learn more, attend a free college planning workshop now:

Citing official statements from Federal Student Aid, College Planning Experts explained that there is no income requirement to be eligible for federal aid, which means that families with higher-than-average incomes may still be considered.

The company, however, said that the difficulty lies in accomplishing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, which it describes as “long, complex, and easy to make mistakes”. “Mistakes that can literally cost you money,” it added.

One of the company’s main offerings is financial aid form preparation. This advisory service shows applicants how to report their expected family contributions correctly and ensures that the FAFSA form and CSS Profile are filled out properly and on time.

While it specializes in federal aid applications, College Planning Experts can also be tasked to find grants and scholarships from lesser-known public and private sources. “Looking for every piece of financial assistance that is out there is an important part of a successful plan for paying for college,” it explained on its website.

These services and more are discussed in greater detail in the company’s workshops and college analysis sessions, which students and parents can book at no cost.

College Planning Experts was founded by philanthropist, author, and long-time college planner Brian Safdari in 2004. Since then, Mr. Safdari and his team of certified college counselors have aided thousands of families across the country in their FAFSA applications.

Moreover, the company has been instrumental in raising over $150,000 for a number of charitable works, and Mr. Safdari has been recognized by various members of the US Congress for his efforts.
