Smash Marketing Helps SAP with “Searching for Salaì” Online Campaign with Content that Grounds Podcast Fantasy

Smash Marketing Adds Online Support to Innovative Marketing Campaign that Uses Dramatic Series on the Digital Renaissance to Promote the SAP Leonardo Platform.

Denver, USA — It’s challenging to gain the attention of busy business professionals, even when you have an intelligent enterprise technology that could revolutionize their business. That’s why SAP (NYSE: SAP) recently launched a nine-part fantasy podcast series, co-produced by Column Five Media. Searching for Salaì (http://searchingforsalai.com) is as an entertaining approach to educate executive listeners and entice them to learn more about SAP Leonardo®, SAP’s extensible, intelligent cloud computing environment. To tie the dramatic podcast back to real-world Leonardo applications, SAP engaged Smash Marketing to design and deploy the Searching for Salai website.

Searching for Salaì is a fictional tale about a time traveler who comes to the 21st century to learn about the digital renaissance. Claiming to be an apprentice of Leonardo da Vinci, the mysterious Salaì explores new ideas driving digital innovation, seeking the spiritual link between the science of Leonardo’s era and the technology of today. Taking its format from old-fashioned radio mysteries, Searching for Salaì is pure entertainment that invites the listener to ponder possibilities and seek their own path to embrace the Digital Renaissance, and learn more about SAP Leonardo including use cases through the website.

“This is a brilliant, innovative marketing campaign designed to engage professionals in a different way and invite them to explore new ideas,” said Leila Ahmed, co-founder of Smash Marketing. “The podcast captures the listener’s attention, but you still need to tie the idea of the Digital Renaissance to real-world applications. We designed the Searching for Salaì website as the bridge between the story and real-world applications.”

Although produced by SAP and Column Five, Searching for Salaì never mentions either company. It does, however, invite listeners to learn more about what they hear in the story at http://searchingforsalai.com. The website that supports the podcast includes reports in written and audio format developed by Futurum Research that profile SAP Leonardo use cases and customer successes in 15 separate industries. The website also includes blog entries and other content to complement the podcasts.

Subscribers have already shared positive reviews of the podcast series:

“Such a clever way to introduce people to digital transformation.”
“I’m kinda hooked. It’s probably because I’m a huge history geek; a fan of mystery stuff.”
“Da Vinci must have been awesome to be around.”
“I don’t really take the time to subscribe to podcasts; this one, however…I so look forward to the next episode!”

“We were seeking a way to humanize the SAP brand and tell a story that would connect with customers on a visceral level,” said Ginger Shimp, Senior Marketing Director at SAP. “We chose Smash Marketing to help us with the online strategy because we knew they could deliver a web experience that would support the emotional response while providing the connection to the SAP Leonardo platform.”

“We wanted to engage on a different level to dramatize how technology can impact people’s lives, without the buzzwords. Searching for Salaì is our way to stimulate new thinking about digital information and transformation with something new and unexpected that promotes real interest and conversation. We see this as a breakthrough in brand marketing,” added Jeff Janiszewski, Marketing Director at SAP.

The podcast medium has been around since the first Apple iPod, and Americans continue to consume more audio. According to Edison Research, Americans spend four hours a day listening to audio. Forty-four percent of Americans listen to podcasts (http://www.convinceandconvert.com/podcast-research/the-13-critical-podcast-statistics-of-2018), and 64 percent use their smartphone or tablet to listen on the go. One in four of those surveyed say they have listened to a podcast in the last month, and weekly listeners consume an average of five podcasts per week.

Searching for Salaì is available to subscribers through the website, through Apple iTunes, or from any outlet where listeners access their podcasts.

FED Publishing Releases New Book, “The Liebold Protocol” by Michael McMenamin & Kathleen McMenamin

The Liebold Protocol, A Mattie McGary + Winston Churchill 1930s Adventure by Michael McMenamin & Kathleen McMenamin, continues the chronicles of Winston Churchill’s goddaughter Mattie McGary inside the Nazi empire.

Cleveland, OH, USA — In her latest adventure, The Liebold Protocol, Winston Churchill’s Scottish goddaughter, Mattie McGary, the adventure-seeking Hearst photojournalist, reluctantly returns to Nazi Germany in the summer of 1934 and once again finds herself in deadly peril in a gangster state where widespread kidnappings and ransoms by the SA and SS are sanctioned by the new Nazi government.

It didn’t begin that way. At Churchill’s suggestion, Mattie initially investigates one of the best-kept secrets of the Great War-that in 1915, facilitated by a sinister German-American agent working for Henry Ford, British Empire and Imperial German officials essentially committed treason by agreeing Britain would sell raw rubber to Germany in exchange for it selling precision optical equipment to Britain. Why? To keep the war going and the profits flowing. After Mattie interviews Ford’s German-American go-between, however, agents of Scotland Yard’s Special Branch are sent by Churchill’s political opponents in the British government to rough her up and warn her she will be prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act unless she backs off the story.

Left no choice, Mattie sets out for Germany to investigate the story from the German side and to interview the German nobleman who negotiated the optics for rubber deal with the British. Once In Germany, however, Mattie lands right in the middle of a potential civil war between the SA Brown Shirts of Ernst Rohm who want a true socialist ‘second revolution’ to follow Hitler’s stunning first revolution in 1933 and Adolf Hitler who believes one revolution is enough. Mattie learns that Hitler has ordered his SS to assassinate all the senior leadership of Ernst Rohm’s SA Brown Shirts as well as other political enemies on Saturday 30 June, an event known to History as ‘The Night of the Long Knives’.

Mattie soon learns she is threatened from two sides and must flee Germany to save her life. Not only does the German-American working for Henry Ford want her story on the Great War optics for rubber treason killed, he wants her dead along with it. Worse, Mattie’s nemesis, the ‘Blond Beast’ of the SS, Reinhard Heydrich, is in charge of Hitler’s ‘Night of the Long Knives’ purge and he’s secretly put her name on his list of targets…

The McMenamin writing teams are award-winning, and one should not expect anything different from The Liebold Protocol.

Two-Time Historical Fiction Book of the Year, ForeWord Reviews.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Execute Order” by Jett Ward

Execute Order, by Jett Ward, takes us inside the drone wars as a Reaper predator pilot who has become the prey.

Port Orchard, WA, USA — Jett Ward’s Execute Order is an International thriller written within the technical sophistication of Tom Clancy and the precision marksmanship of Vince Flynn novels. Spanning the dark mafia underworld of Las Vegas to the murky Special Operation battlegrounds of the Middle East-this novel does not stop until the very last page.

Reaper pilot, Brent Parker, receives an execute order to kill the number one terrorist on the U.S. High Value Target list. With the CIA declaring open season on terrorist around the world, the aftermath places him in the cross hairs of the Iranian IRGC.

After a U.S. Navy strike, Parker soon becomes a target by his own government when he is unable to stop insurgents from taking anti-aircraft missiles from a destroyed Benghazi Military Compound. Now an F/A-18 fighter has been shot down over hostile ISIS territory and a government conspiracy mounts to hide an international scandal that involves an execute order against an American aviator. When a Special Forces team is sent on a suicide mission to eliminate the Navy pilot before he becomes captured, Parker is forced to make a tough decision that will cost him his freedom. With a government conspiracy closing in and a Quds agent hunting him down, his past propels him to escape the confines of his prison and become the hunter against those who seek to destroy him.

“This book is hard to put down right from the opening pages. The author did a great job interweaving the subplots into the main plot and tying it all together at the end.”

“The action scenes were very well written and they made me feel I was right there.”

FED Publishing Releases New Book, “FORMULA SEVEN and Genesis of The New World Order” by Michael March

FORMULA SEVEN and Genesis of The New World Order, Michael March, heralds Doctor Cyrus Markum as he rolls out the antitoxin that will neutralize the deadly HIV virus! Unfortunately factions within the federal government conspire to eliminate any trace.

Atlanta, GA, USA — Michael March’s FORMULA SEVEN and Genesis of The New World Order, follows an enraged scientist as he creates a masterwork of revenge including acceptance into the Illuminati.

On an otherwise serene 1989, June night, FBI agents are hustling to load up two large tractor-trailers. Their cargo is unusual. It consists of heavy filing cabinets, laboratory equipment, and chattering chimpanzees. Their motivation is far from altruistic.

Their target of the operation is Doctor Cyrus Markum, a brilliant microbiologist. With the fortune bequeathed by his former life-partner, he’s funded the research project that has created Formula Seven, the vaccine that will thwart the virus causing AIDS.

The Feds are far from enthused with his initiative. They dispatch their agents to eradicate any trace of the lifesaving antibodies and emasculate its creator. The pompous autocrats have gravely miscalculated. They’ve unleashed a ravenous lion.

Doctor Markum chooses Daniel Dundee, a televangelist, as the pivot point in his blueprint of retribution and convinces the Bavarian Illuminati that the time has arrived for their all-encompassing revolution. The TV broadcast of the “New Age Messiah’s” assassination will be the tipping point for the scheme, causing a chain reaction that will lead to the New World Order’s absolute planetary domination. The Doctor’s enterprise is expansive and ingenious, but the Illuminati’s Trilateral Commission has a strategy of their own.

Born in Brooklyn, Michael studied industrial engineering at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan. Preferring the exploding music scene, he left to find his way in the world of Rock n’ Roll. Uncle Sam had a much better idea. He insisted that Michael become all that he could be and enter the military. He served with the Eleventh Armored Cavalry Regiment in Vietnam from July 1967 to July 1968. After his discharge, he circumnavigated America, seeking to uncover the soul of society and discover his own. Eventually wending his way home, he semi-normalized and raised a family. Taking his leave from the corporate world seven years ago, Michael moved to Atlanta and fell in love with the city and the craft of storytelling. His first book, Each One a Hero, a fictionalized autobiography of his time spent in a misunderstood and unpopular war, was published by Hellgate Press in 2016.

Genre – Illuminati, HIV Virus, New Thought Ministry, Government conspiracy, Televangelist, International Intrigue, Vietnam veteran, FBI, New World Order, AIDS epidemic

The Home Care Bible Now Available for Entrepreneurs Starting Their Own Senior Care Business

Founder of A Better Solution Home Care Nursing, Inc., Shares Tips and Techniques for Operating a Successful Home Health Care Operation.

San Diego, CA, USA — The Home Care Bible is now available for entrepreneurs seeking to launch a successful business offering home care services to seniors. Written by Lia Smith-Pratt (http://liasmith.net), CEO of A Better Solution (ABS) Home Care & Nursing, The Home Care Bible shares her experience and business tips from more than 30 years in health care and 18 years at ABS providing home and nursing services to seniors.

According to the Family Caregiver Alliance there are more than 8.4 million American seniors that receive long-term care services annually, and 27 million seniors will need some form of care by 2050. As a result, the home care is currently a $93.4 billion industry growing at an annual rate of 3.4 percent. Since more than 90 percent of aging Americans are opting for home health care, so the need for independent home care providers continues to grow at a dramatic pace. The Home Care Bible was written specifically for nurses, therapists, and non-medical professionals seeking to become their own boss and establish their own senior care practice.

“After working with so many home care providers over the years I have seen all the mistakes as well as a variety of successes,” said Smith-Pratt. “To be a winner in home care you need to adopt the right mindset and know where to look for potential pitfalls that could sink your business. Although I originally wrote The Home Care Bible to help ABS franchise partners, the book contains valuable lessons for anyone considering entering the home senior care field.”

In The Home Care Bible, Smith-Pratt shares her tips and techniques to home senior care business owners in how to avoid costly mistakes and build a successful business. It also illustrates how to build a care business with a culture of integrity and dedication to the Spirit of Service.

The Home Care Bible is available in paperback from Amazon or online at http://liasmith.net.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book by Michael McMenamin & Kathleen McMenamin

Appointment in Prague – a Mattie McGary + Winston Churchill World War II Adventure, by Michael McMenamin & Kathleen McMenamin, features British secret agent Mattie McGary in her own solo adventure against the Nazi empire in wartime Prague.

Cleveland, OH, USA — In the novella, Appointment in Prague, one woman, a British secret agent, sets out to single-handedly send to hell the most evil Nazi alive-SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the head of the SD, the intelligence wing of the SS and the architect of “The Final Solution” that will send millions of European Jews to their doom.

Winston Churchill in October 1941 authorizes the assassination of Heydrich by the British SOE-the ‘Special Operations Executive’ created by Churchill to ‘set Europe ablaze’. He is unaware that the entire operation has been conceived and is being run by his Scottish goddaughter, the former Pulitzer Prize-winning Hearst photojournalist Mattie McGary who joined the SOE at his suggestion after he became Prime Minister in May 1940.

Mattie has a history with Heydrich dating back to 1933 and a personal score to settle. In September 1941, when the man known variously as ‘The Blond Beast’ and ‘The Man With the Iron Heart’-that last coming from Adolf Hitler himself-is appointed Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia, the remnants left of Czechoslovakia, Mattie decides-now that he is no longer safely within Germany’s borders-that he must die. She persuades her boss at SOE to secure Churchill’s consent. She then recruits and trains several Czech partisans for the task and has them parachuted into Czechoslovakia in December 1941.

An increasingly impatient Mattie waits in London for word that her agents have killed the Blond Beast. By May 1942, Heydrich still lives and Mattie is furious. The mother of six-year-old twins, Mattie decides-without telling her godfather or her American husband, the #2 man in the London station of the American OSS-to parachute into Czechoslovakia herself and “light a fire under their timid Czech bums”. Which she does, but her agents botch the job and Heydrich is only wounded in the attempt. The doctors sent from Berlin by Hitler to care for him believe the Man With the Iron Heart will recover. Mattie is determined this won’t happen.

On the fly, Mattie conceives a new plan to kill Heydrich herself. With forged papers and other help from the highest-placed SOE asset in Nazi Germany-a one-time lover-Mattie decides to covertly enter Prague’s Bulovka Hospital and finish the job. After that, all she has to do is flee Prague into Germany and from there to neutral Switzerland and home to London. What Mattie doesn’t know is that Walter Schellenberg, Heydrich’s protégé and the head of Foreign Intelligence for the SD, has been watching her every move and has plans to stop her before she can reach Switzerland and safety.

Michael McMenamin is the co-author with his son Patrick of the award-winning 1930s era historical novels featuring Winston Churchill and his fictional Scottish goddaughter, the adventure-seeking Hearst photojournalist Mattie McGary. The first five novels in the series-The DeValera Deception, The Parsifal Pursuit, The Gemini Agenda, The Berghof Betrayal and The Silver Mosaic-received a total of 15 literary awards. He is currently at work with his daughter Kathleen McMenamin on the sixth Mattie and Winston historical novel, The Liebold Protocol, to be published in fall 2018.

Kathleen, the other half of the father-daughter writing team, has been editing her father’s writing for longer than she cares to remember. She is the co-author with her sister Kelly of the critically acclaimed Organize Your Way: Simple Strategies for Every Personality [Sterling, 2017].

FED Publishing Releases New eBook Edition of, “The Gemini Agenda” by Michael McMenamin & Patrick McMenamin

A new eBook edition of The Gemini Agenda by Michael McMenamin & Patrick McMenamin continues the award-winning series of Winston Churchill Thrillers weaving history, intrigue, thrills and romance during the era leading up to World War II. The 3rd novel in the series, it was a 2012 Grand Prize Winner-Fiction in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and named both a 2012 Historical Fiction Book of the Year Finalist and a 2012 Thriller/Suspense Book of the Year Finalist by ForeWord Reviews.

Cleveland, OH, USA — In 1932, Winston Churchill has ominous intelligence from a confidential source in Germany. Across the United States, naked bodies, drained of blood, their eyeballs extracted, appeared at ten remote locations. A serial killer? Or something worse? Churchill’s source believes the answers may lie in Germany.

Churchill informs William Randolph Hearst who assigns his best journalist, Mattie McGary, Churchill’s risk-taking Scottish goddaughter, to investigate. Together with her lover, the lawyer and ex-military intelligence agent Bourke Cockran, Jr., they become the target of an international conspiracy that ranges from Wall Street to Washington, DC; from Long Island’s fabled Gold Coast to the marble corridors of the Barlow Palace in Munich, headquarters of Adolf Hitler’s fast-rising Nazi Party that is poised on the cusp of power.

Mattie’s discovery in America that all ten victims were twins leads her to learn that there are ten more missing twins for whom “autopsy protocols” will begin in Bavaria in just ten days. Mattie and Cockran embark for Germany on the famed airship the Graf Zeppelin in a race against time to locate and save the twins. In Bavaria, they combine forces with unlikely allies leading to a sinister Nazi clinic in the Bavarian National Forest near the small border town of Passau where Hitler lived as a child. Once there, they uncover an unspeakable alliance between Wall Street-funded American eugenicists and Nazi scientists to conduct lethal experiments on American twins in order to unlock the secrets to creating a master race.

Michael McMenamin is the author of the critically acclaimed Becoming Winston Churchill, The Untold Story of Young Winston and His American Mentor. His son Patrick McMenamin is an award-winning journalist who has produced stories for ABC News, Fox News, HuffPost and Buzzfeed.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book by CC Crawford

The Ultimate African Solution, Race…First Brick, by CC Crawford, will solve all of Black people’s problems and provide the whole African race with one hundred percent employment for this, and future generations.

Warren, MI, USA — CC Crawford’s The Ultimate African Solution, Race…First Brick implores: Africans!!! It is imperative that we revel in each other’s successes and instead of willfully keeping ourselves down, we offer helping hands to pick each other up.

Africa is due reparation for the atrocities our ancestors had to bear, in order for the two races here in question, to be able to truly coexist as nature intended. Fighting on their behalf, to make right them being wronged throughout five hundred years of recent history and still counting, will allow our deserving ancestors to finally rest in peace. THE ULTIMATE AFRICAN SOLUTION will be achieved without any human beings losing their lives. No one has to die.

The negative effects that slavery and colonialism have on the African’s psyche, must be affectedly nullified first and foremost, in order to step up in race. There are numerous steps to take to overcome the mental struggles caused from the enslavement of the mind syndrome and ridding the African race of “self-hate” tops the list.

We are underrepresented in regards to important decisions been made above our heads and disrespect of the Black race is “IN YOUR FACE” blatant. A Black person born today will endure the same fate as Black people did a hundred years ago and the system is designed to maintain Africans in the same dependent position for many generations to come. Black people in the western hemisphere have been geared to only strive for an elusive equality, when reunification with Mother Africa should be our ultimate goal to achieve racial parity.

THE ULTIMATE AFRICAN SOLUTION is my life’s work, inspired by the teachings of Marcus Mosiah Garvey, hero of many and one of the greatest Africans to ever walk the face of the earth. He taught the diaspora how to trample down Babylon and overcome obstacles through self-sufficiency, despite dwelling in the pits of oppression. Thanks to my Mother Ella Steele for nurturing me, the Island of Jamaica for my education, “Non Potest”, the United States for teaching me life’s lessons and to all the ancestors, whose spirits have guided and protected me through this inevitable process. I fear no evil and I will continue to be comforted by the greater presence of God Almighty.
