ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr A hot marketing topic is the wide variety of social media platforms and how marketing professionals use them. We recently visited with Brenna Kowall, Digital Marketing Specialist with Firefighters Community Credit Union ($200 million assets, 27,500 members) in Cleveland, Ohio to find out more about her efforts using Pinterest.1) How long has your credit union been involved in Pinterest and what prompted you to join?Our credit union joined Pinterest about two years ago. We recently went through a rebranding campaign and saw Pinterest as a good way to reach out to both existing and potential members and the communities we serve. We find Pinterest, among other things, is a good outlet for improving our brand identity and also a great member engagement tool. Pinterest is not just another social media channel we have our name on. It’s an amazing marketing tool that helps us connect with our members and potential members and the community.2) How has Pinterest helped your credit union better connect with members and potential members?We’ve found people that use Pinterest (our Pinners) tend to take over the job of sharing information for the credit union. When we share something of interest, our Pinners take the initiative to pin, re-pin and share with their networks. You don’t usually see that kind of interaction in traditional marketing and we want to take full advantage of it.3) What challenges have you faced using Pinterest?The elephant in the room when it comes to Pinterest is the heavily female-skewed demographic. Honestly, if you’re looking to reach a mostly male audience, Pinterest is not the best outlet for your social media efforts. The way we look at it, though, women control the budgeting and purse-strings in many households these days, so using Pinterest to reach them makes sense. continue reading »

Liffey Celtics lost their first game of the season last Sunday evening thanks to a stunning three-point shooting exhibition from Pyrobel Killester, which saw them win out 109-86 against the Cup champions. This result has made the battle at the top of the table extremely interesting, with Liffey now on one loss and DCU Mercy sitting on their heels with three losses. Liffey have had the better of the sides’ meetings this year, overcoming DCU at home in their first clash in the league, before putting in a clinical performance against them in the National Cup semi-final in Cork. Revenge will certainly be on the cards for Mark Ingle’s DCU charges though, and they will be hoping to defend their home court in style on Sunday afternoon.Elsewhere around the women’s league, the battle for crucial top slots is raging on in earnest. One of the other big clashes of the weekend sees the Cork derby meeting of Fr Mathews and Singleton SuperValu Brunell this Saturday, in what is a repeat of the Cup semi-final showdown in early January. Brunell got the better of that clash, but this weekend’s derby will undoubtedly come down to the wire between these two sides. NUIG Mystics meanwhile face off against Pyrobel Killester in Galway on Saturday and will be hoping to get some vital points on the board. A big battle will also tip off in Kilkenny this weekend as Marble City Hawks welcome Maxol WIT Wildcats while Ambassador UCC Glanmire will be hoping to maintain their spot on the table when they welcome IT Carlow Basketball to Cork on Saturday evening.A big decider in the Men’s Super League will tip off in Tralee this weekend as Garvey’s Tralee Warriors host Pyrobel Killester in a huge clash at the Sports Complex. Tralee have played 12 games to date and have lost just four, to see them on the same loss record as league leaders, Templeogue, while Killester have lost five of their 13 games. The two sides most recently met in the Hula Hoops Cup semi-final in January, with Ciaran Roe delivering a polished 34-point performance for Killester to see them through that tie.Top of the table Templeogue meanwhile will be hoping to banish Demons this weekend when they welcome the Cork side to Oblate Hall. The Dubliners, who have played 14 games so far this season, need to pick up the points from this clash in a bid to stay slightly ahead of the chasing pack, while UCC Demons also need a big performance this weekend in order to stay in the vital top six spot.Elsewhere, UCD Marian will be hoping to keep momentum from last weekend’s win against Templegoue when they host Maree in Dublin on Saturday evening. Maree have proven to be a tough opponent for Marian recently, beating them in Oranmore in their last league meeting. C and S Neptune will welcome Belfast Star to Cork on Saturday, while Moycullen and DCU Saints go head-to-head in Galway.BasketballIreland Fixtures: February 16th and 17thSaturday16th February 2019 BasketballIreland Men’s Super League: C and S Neptune v Belfast Star, Neptune Stadium, 19:00;UCD Marian v Maree, UCD Sports Centre-Belfield,19:00;Moycullen v DCU Saints, NUIG, 19:30;Garvey’s Tralee Warriors v Pyrobel Killester, TraleeSports Complex, 19:30;Templeogue v UCC Demons, Oblate Hall Inchicore,20:00; BasketballIreland Women’s Super League: NUIG Mystics v Pyrobel Killester, BallinfoileCastlegar Neighbourhood Centre-Headford Rd, 16:30;Fr Mathews v Singleton SuperValu Brunell, Fr MathewsArena, 17:00;Marble City Hawks v Maxol WIT Wildcats, O LoughlinGaels Gym, 19:00;Ambassador UCC Glanmire v IT Carlow Basketball,Mardyke Arena, 19:00;BasketballIreland Men’s Division One: Tradehouse Central Ballincollig v LYIT Donegal,Ballincollig CS, 16:00;UL Sports Eagles v Ulster University Elks, PESS Building-UL,17:00;LIT v EJ Sligo All-Stars, Limerick IT Sportshall,18:00;Limerick Celtics v GameFootage.net Titans, StMunchins, 18:30;Waterford Vikings v DBS Eanna, Waterford IT, 19:00;Scotts Lakers St Pauls Killarney v Abbey SealsDublin Lions, Killarney SC, 19:30;Fr Mathews v KUBS BC, Fr Mathews Arena, 19:45; A top of the table clash in the Women’s Super Leagueis in store this weekend as second placed DCU Mercy welcome league leaders,Courtyard Liffey Celtics to DCU on Sunday afternoon.
