The BuzzLine – Week 1 – Shine the Apple

The BuzzLine is a weekly contest that challenges PR and marketing pros to deliver a smart, witty, creative or humorous six-word commentary on a selected story.

Don’t worry about character limits! But your sentence or phrase must have five spaces. No more, no less. For example:

Recently the stock market made big news with the DJIA reaching new heights. How would you comment on that story in six words? Maybe…

  • “Filling gas tank with stock profits.”
  • “Bulls leave bears to clean up.”
  • “Nothing inflates bubbles like irrational exuberance.”

Just put your six-word masterpiece in the comments. We’ll pick a winner on Tuesday, tweet the winning comment widely on Wednesday (#buzzline, #PR) and reward its author. (Starbucks on us!) And we’ll start over with a new BuzzLine challenge next Friday.

Ready to have some fun? Stick with the stock theme and buzz off on this:

To bolster its first quarterly profit decline in a decade, Apple said this week it would open its vault and return $100 billion to shareholders. But shares of the stock, they did not pop. And sales of i-this and i-that continue to slow.

In six words, what do you think Apple needs to do to regain its shine?

    Thanks for participating in the inaugural BuzzLine! And congrats to Emily Lacy, the Week One winner with six words of advice for Apple: “Bolster your genius, not your stock.”

    We’ll do it again Friday. Week Two of the BuzzLine should be up around noon. Hope to see your comments again!
