Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse

by Wonacott Communications

The month of May isn’t just for mothers; it’s also Zombie Awareness Month! Zombies have “blown up” the last couple of years with TV shows such as the “Walking Dead,” “Game of Thrones” and movies, including “World War Z” and “Warm Bodies.” Americans have gone zombie crazy! Here at Wonacott, we have to always think strategically to ensure we achieve our client’s goals. Whether it is placement in a trade magazine or being showcased on iTunes Featured Apps, we have to always think ahead to produce desired results.

Wonacotters aren’t just strategic within the public relations realm, they're also strategic when it comes to real-life situations. (Zombies are totally real, OK? (Even the Pentagon has a zombie contingency plan.) We asked each Wonacotter to tell us what they would do in the event of a zombie apocalypse. The strategies and tactics are genius/hilarious. Take notes!

by Zac Gunnell

If there is one thing we at Wonacott Communications really love (besides our amazing clients), it is innovation. From the creativity and solutions that our clients bring to the market, to the larger trends that affect us all, advancements are great. One particularly innovative piece of technology that has been making news recently is virtual reality. With the many retroactive pieces about Facebook’s purchase of The Oculus Rift and Sony’s announcement of their “Project Morpheus” VR System, the concept of virtual reality becoming a tangible tool is creating quite the buzz among the blogosphere. We’re excited too. After all, whose inner-child wouldn’t love the chance to experience virtual reality? We listed some of the recent stories about developers working with Oculus Rift that we thought you would enjoy learning about. Time to open your eyes. It's a whole new world out there!

We here at Wonacott are passionate about what we do. We’re driven to make sure our clients succeed by providing the best possible public relations service we can provide.

In other words – we’re a bunch of geeks.
