SXSW: Adly contest for start-ups gives winner a celebrity tweet

Posted by Levine Communications Office on March 12, 2013

BY ANDREA CHANG

AUSTIN, Texas — Want a major celebrity to endorse your start-up company on Twitter?

Westwood-based Adly, a marketing platform that connects brands with celebrities on social media, is holding a contest during South by Southwest for start-ups that want a little boost from a big name.

Entrants just need to submit a pitch of 140 characters or fewer to Adly’s Twitter handle with the format: “Hey @Adly ____________________ #SXSW #pitchadly.”

At a “Sunday Funday” event featuring L.A. tech companies, Adly Chief Executive Walter Delph said that as SXSW’s Interactive festival grows each year, start-ups can struggle to get noticed.

“Now you have multi-billion companies like Samsung who are here, so it’s harder for smaller companies to bubble to the top,” Delph said from Austin’s Frank restaurant, where a capacity crowd snacked on currywurst and downed cocktails adorned with bacon strips. “We want to help in an authentic way.”

UFC’s Ortiz vs. Hamill Fight this Saturday

Posted by Levine Communications Office on October 22, 2010

More than four years have passed since Tito Ortiz last won in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and the charismatic Huntington Beach fighter finds himself nearly a 2-to-1 underdog in Las Vegas sports books for Saturday night’s light-heavyweight UFC 121 fight at Anaheim’s Honda Center.

"Whatever," former light-heavyweight champion Ortiz said in a telephone conversation from his Big Bear training compound. "It's cool. I'll make my fans a lot of money."

“I fight a little harder in O.C.,” Ortiz said. “I’m trying to get my world title back, so getting a win is the most important thing. The close matches, the draw, guys running from me … I’m tired of it. I’m going to be doing my job. I’ve heard a lot of smack talk, but those people saying it aren’t as successful as me. “I put on a show. UFC understands my value. I give my heart and soul.” Ortiz said Monday he was 15 pounds over the light-heavyweight limit, but argued, “That’s nothing, as a wrestler I’ve cut weight all my life. I’m in great shape.” He’ll have an opportunity to back up the talk Saturday. Another loss, and there’s little choice but to side with the Ortiz haters who accuse him of spewing nothing more than empty words.
