The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-04-30T04:15:39Z New Media App Launches To Kill Off The Press Release 2019-04-30T04:15:39Z new-media-app-launches-to-kill-off-the-press-release A new technology platform has launches tomorrow made just for you. This tech platform called Story Match® will change the way that you receive your story pitches. No more emails, no more press releases and no more hassling PRs (I promise not to be one of those…) First, watch this! In 1.5 minutes it will explain it all to you… Story Match® is a two sided market place App and Desktop platform that allows brands to pitch story ideas to journalists, at the same time allowing journalists to select only what topics of stories they want to receive. Journalists, like you, set up their profile using 6 simple steps. You can select from up to 50 industry tags (food, finance, lifestyle, tech, etc etc) and can localise by State and Territories. If there’s a match on industry tags then you see the pitch. Using swiping technology you can scroll through stories, swipe left if you don’t like the story or right if you do. If you swipe right, it will open an immediate and private chat between you and the person who posted the pitch. The best bit…. The pitches have limitations – so brands can only upload selected images, a headline and up to 500 characters to bring their pitch to life. They then select which industry tag their story is relevant to, and localise it. So now you don’t need to read any more press releases or receive any more pitches that you’re not interested in. Story Match® was developed to improve efficiencies in the media industry, and allow all brands, no matter how big or small the opportunity to get their brand noticed. The tech platform has been developed by Founder and Director of Polkadot Communications Dionne Taylor – who has worked both as a journalist and a PR for the last 15 years. Dionne is available for an interview to chat about this new and exciting platform, built just for YOU! If interested in speaking with Dionne, please get in touch.

It’s all about distances, taking the risk, a calling. People who journey to New Zealand travel forward through time, to the end of the earth, where the new day starts. They are now in their future, on the edge of tomorrow – it starts again here, first. The NZL store celebrates the bravery, innovation and determination of ‘the traveller’, and this combined with our country’s ethos of uncompromising freedom and individuality, underpins all that they do. The NZL store is about product of time, place and imagination, and they’re about providing a connection between the journey and a personality: an item that comes to life because you wear it, or display it, with context; from a backdrop of exploration, courage and change. A recently posted blog on the NZL Store website at http://www.nzlstore.com titled “Celebrate your bravery anyway with a quality 100% cotton East 180 tee from NZL store”, said. “A definition of bravery and the saying to follow in the footsteps of giants. The sea journey to New Zealand from Europe in the mid-19th century and one of the longest journeys of migration in human history. •    100 days in a wooden boat propelled by canvas sheets tied up with rope •    covering a distance of 20,000 km (12,500 miles) over oceans and seas •     encountering anything from sub-arctic storms with waves of over 5m (16 ft.), to being becalmed in the doldrums for weeks; to 15m (49 ft.) whales and icebergs. •    sharing a tiny space of only 1.8m headroom with 200 others; as well as livestock, rats and cockroaches. •    never washing, apart from the occasional flooding by sea water as waves break over the bow •     eating only salted and preserved meat, ship’s biscuits of flour, oatmeal and dried potatoes washed down with a little stale water. It makes the 24 hour travelling time to NZ now a dream but celebrate your bravery anyway with a quality 100% cotton East 180 tee from NZL store.” NZL Store Philosophy Reflected In Their Products 2016-02-21T21:40:21Z nzl-store-philosophy-reflected-in-their-products NZL store is all about interpreting New Zealand in a new light; cinematic prints, candid snapshots, statement t-shirts and accessories; so that others visiting our land can take away a souvenir of something unique that in some way defines their stay.

The NZL store also offers exceptional great gift ideas for homesick Kiwis overseas. The Oxford English dictionary describes an Outlier as a person or thing detached or separated from the main body or system. From this point of view New Zealand could be described as an outlier. 4,000 km east of Australia and about 9000 km west of Chile, New Zealand sits all alone out in the middle of the southern Pacific. As a result of this isolation New Zealanders have developed some interesting traits. Described as having a number eight wire culture, early New Zealanders had to fix machines, clothes, furniture etc. way beyond their useful lives, often using things they could find in their local environment. Number eight wire was plentiful in the farming community and so became the symbol of this self-sufficient attitude. An example of the way NZL’s philosophy reflects their products is their Outlier Tee which replicates this interesting relationship between isolation and the rise of the number eight wire culture. The three dimensional line design looks formed from wire, but also hints at the idea of design drawings. Any new project needs to start with a plan and New Zealand as a new country is still in its formative years revealing a brand new country and culture forming all in physical isolation in the middle of the Pacific.
