You can’t spell BLOG without BG. Centered around what’s new in marketing, advertising and public relations, the Bauserman Group Blog covers agency happenings, client success and inspirational work throughout the ad world.
Bauserman Group is gearing up for a big 2016! We are currently in the midst of evolving our brand, and a big step in that process is re-evaluating our office. As you may have read or seen in the news, owner Jim Bauserman recently purchased the commercial space in The Montage (along with Stacie Mathewson).
What does this mean for BG? For starters, it means we’re moving! It is also an opportunity to redefine our workspace, help shape our company culture and make a positive impact on downtown Reno.
Because the Montage commercial space is currently completely empty, we won’t be moving right away. The goal is to have the construction project completed and our agency moved into our new office by mid to late 2016.
We recently took a group trip to The Montage to see the new space and share ideas. … Read More »

For months, businesses have been playing the “Facebook Game” – a game of strategy and skill to ensure their content shows up in their follower’s newsfeeds. Although this game can be easily won with advertising dollars, there is still a desire to crack the code with a natural, organic reach. Tech Crunch recently reported, “Facebook is rolling out to the U.S. a way to choose friends and Pages they want to “See First” atop the feed.” What does this mean for the “Facebook Game?” It means that for one of the first time, Facebook is allowing users to decide what content they want filtered in and out of their feed, making their experience more personalized. In turn, it’s likely that Facebook will become even more addicting.
For marketers, this is exciting because it means that our followers can ensure … Read More »
Since its debut in 2011/2012 Snapchat has continued to impress with innovated updates to their app, content and advertising options. And, just recently, they did it again. If you haven’t heard, yesterday Greece voted on the future of their economy, determining whether or not they will accept financial help from Europe. Snapchat didn’t miss a beat. Their featured story portrayed why the vote was happening, what the vote would mean to the country, and why people might vote yes or no. Not only did they provide the unbiased facts from both sides of the fence, they also featured Greek citizens talking about their stance and opinions on the issues at hand.
