How the New “Sponsor” button works on YouTube

https://i2.wp.com/gerald-pilcher.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/XxyyKScQFzE.jpg?fit=1280%2C720&ssl=1

YouTube's Sponsor button has been available for gaming channels for a little while now, but YouTube is beta testing it on non-gaming channels now and expending the product a bit. The Sponsor feature allows viewers to contribute a monthly fee to a channel and access exclusive perks on that YouTube channel in return, such as custom emojis, a special badge in chat and comments, and access to special content. It's a way that allows a channel's community to help support the creator they love while also taking a deeper step into the community that surrounds that channel.

Gail Corder Fischer is the co-founder and executive vice chairman of Dallas-based Fischer & Company, the go-to real estate firm for global Fortune 500 companies like FedEx and IBM. But this member of The Oracles wasn’t born a real estate mogul—quite the opposite.

In her own words, Corder Fischer got her start at 14-years-old as a “French fry girl at McDonalds.” By 15, she’d discovered a “knack for sales” from selling carpet cleaning services over the phone. Without instruction, Corder Fischer took her boss’s sales script, opened the Yellow Pages, and started dialing for doll

Apple has a new ad campaign for the Mac. 

Titled "Behind the Mac," the ads — four in total — show creatives doing wonderful things on their MacBook computers.

The fourth ad is a combination of the three other ads, with many more Mac users shown using their computers in a

As an outsider in the beverage industry trying to find a way to reach more consumers, landing my product in Starbucks stores was a huge win. It also seemed like a natural fit, as Starbucks at the time was looking for healthier bottled drink options.

The partnership was initially planned to start with a limited launch of our blackberry flavor in 500 stores, which would have been significant for us at the time. But, shortly before launch, Starbucks decided to go even bigger, placing our product in 11,000 stores across the country.

But, in other cases, if you’re that entrepreneur who is caught deliberately misleading investors or consumers, you could face false advertising charges -- and the ruin of your brand's reputation. Consider these six examples:
