StoneHold Keyart

Play this unique MOBA+CCG hybrid!

IRVINE, Calif. – September 6, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Little Orbit’s GamersFirst.com is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Ultimax Digital to be the sole portal for the release of Ultimax’s new MOBA StoneHold. Closed beta testing is planned for September 2022 and players on the GamersFirst.com portal will have access to an Open Beta in Q4 of this year.

Little Orbit took on a unique role with Ultimax to redesign the look and feel of StoneHold from the ground up. They created everything players experience from the lore, map, characters, and cards.

“We had a terrific time working on StoneHold with Ultimax,” said Matt Scott, CEO of Little Orbit. “They gave us a blank canvas to create the world and look of the fantasy characters. The team thoroughly enjoyed leaning into classic pen and paper RPG tropes with our stone magic thematic. We are excited that our GamersFirst community will be the first to play the game and hope that players will enjoy this fresh new take.”

StoneHold is an innovative F2P multiplayer game set in a fantasy world of stone and magic that uniquely blends the MOBA & CCG genres.

  • MOBA: Compete in team-based lane combat with fantasy character archetypes
  • CCG: Earn collectible cards and abilities, strategically craft hero loadouts

Jesse Sutton, Co-Founder and CEO of Ultimax Digital, said, “After reviewing other options, we are excited to have selected the GamerFirst platform for the StoneHold Beta release. We look forward to building a loyal and excited GamerFirst fan base for years to come.”

GamersFirst invites users to get more information at https://stoneholdgame.com, where they can also sign up to be ready for the upcoming beta.

Brands Could Save Millions in Paid Search With Adthena’s New Brand Activator Automation Tool

Brand Activator finally solves the problem of “Lone Ranger” keywords

AUSTIN, Texas – September 6, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Adthena, the leader in AI-powered search intelligence, today announced the launch of its innovative Brand Activator automation tool. The new platform feature resolves a longstanding source of inefficient spending in paid search advertising by automatically pausing bidding on search terms when a brand is winning organically and when no other competitors are bidding. 

Brand Activator will reduce total paid search costs for its users by an estimated 20% simply by eliminating this wasted spend, with enterprise brands saving up to $2 million annually. Using Adthena’s patented Whole Market View technology, these savings can then be reinvested back into paid search on higher-performing search terms to further increase overall Return On Ad Spend (ROAS).

A Lone Ranger term is a keyword for which a brand currently has no rival bidders in the paid search auction and the brand appears in the #1 organic position on the search engine results page. Because the brand is winning the keyword organically and has no competitors in PPC, there’s no reason to pay for those clicks. Brand Activator automatically switches off and reactivates a brand’s bidding as rivals exit and re-enter the auction on a customer’s brand terms.

“Adthena’s new Brand Activator could save many large brands millions of dollars a year,” said Ian O’Rourke, CEO & Founder of Adthena. “Nearly 70% of brands will see savings immediately, and the remainder will see costs go down within 40 days. Those savings in budget can be much better invested in higher-performing terms, which Adthena’s market-leading Whole Market View technology can identify. By reallocating paid search budget in this more-efficient way, our customers will achieve their overall goals, such as boosting market share, much faster.”

Brand Activator automatically detects Lone Rangers for a customer and pauses bidding on those terms. Just as important, if a competitor re-enters the auction for that term, Brand Activator automatically resumes bidding so the brand doesn’t lose clicks or market share. The entire cycle is logged in detail in Adthena reports so search marketers can track all activities and savings, as well as reinvest in areas of growth directly in the platform. Adthena’s digital agency customers can achieve client saving commitments or, alternatively, reinvest the savings into new channels, new investment plans or upper funnel tactics to benefit their clients’ overall strategies.

We are thrilled to help our customers reach PPC goals with the confidence that valuable marketing spend is being “always on” optimised to deliver the most efficient and effective impact,” said Ben Peck, VP Customer at Adthena

Adthena’s platform users are already seeing enormous savings from the new feature. Travel company Avanti West Coast needed to maximize spending efficiency without sacrificing market share during the pandemic. Adthena identified multiple high-volume Lone Rangers, and the brand was able to stop spending on those terms without relinquishing clicks to its competitors. The brand saved an average of 32% each month, and by reinvesting the savings in other areas of growth in PPC, the company increased revenue by 13% on generic terms.

“Adthena helped us identify real spend efficiencies,” said Alison Yarrow, Digital and Media Manager, Avanti West Coast. Through their Lone Rangers, we’re able to stop spending on brand terms and reinvest that budget to areas that are more conducive to acquiring new customers.”

Evergreen Podcasts and Sound Talent Media’s 2020’d Showcased in Coveted Editorial Features

CLEVELAND – September 6, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

The partnership between Evergreen Podcasts, an award-winning production house, and Sound Talent Media is making the news through their show 2020’d, a series of no-holds-barred discussions chock full of insider information.

Hosts Benny Goodman, Cory Paza, and Siobhan Cronin from the band Lost Symphony go backstage to dish perspective on guests’ unique lifestyles and prominence in the entertainment industry with guests like Richard Shaw formerly of Cradle of Filth. 

Shaw confesses that “My B.S. tolerance seems to have lowered over the years,” as the guitar/songwriter Shaw who played with British extreme metallers Cradle of Filth discusses the impetus for his split. He has told the press: “Touring and writing and recording is the dream – it really is. But to me, it came at quite a high cost, and I wasn’t willing to pay that cost … I still get on well with the band … it just got to a point where I was, like, ‘This isn’t fun anymore.'”

Matthew West Releases His Sixth Book ‘The God Who Stays’ – Out Today

Early Endorsements From Tim Tebow, Candace Cameron Bure and More; Current Single “Me On Your Mind” Number 1 on Billboard Christian Airplay Chart for 5 Weeks

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – September 6, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Five-time Grammy® nominated artist Matthew West releases his sixth book, The God Who Stays – out today. Published by ‎W. Publishing Group, an imprint of Thomas Nelson, the new book is an engaging and thoughtful exploration, balanced with West’s trademark wit and humor, that helps us reconnect to the Biblical truth that God is with us. In his most personal book to date, West was inspired by the dramatic events of 2020 to go on a spiritual journey of rediscovery and revival inspired by the words of his hit song “The God Who Stays.” 

“The God Who Stays” is available here.

“With ‘The God Who Stays,’ I wrote the book that I needed,” shares West. “During a time of extreme isolation when our lives were dominated by words like ‘separation,’ and ‘social distancing,’ this book served as a chapter by chapter reminder of the spiritual closeness I can experience in my life moment by moment. I laughed and cried as I poured out my heart on these pages and I hope that all who read it will reach the end saying, ‘I needed that reminder of the God who stays too.'”

“Matthew has an incredible ability to impact lives and inspire others through his words and music. `”The God Who Stays,” reminds us that God will travel with us forever through our lives, no matter what. I believe this book will be an encouragement to everyone who reads it.” – Tim Tebow

“I don’t know the exact details of hard days you’ve lived through, but I know this: your story isn’t over, and God is more good than you can imagine. This has been true in my life, and my friend Matthew West shares his own journey, calling us back to the simplicity of walking with Jesus in the hard times and in the good ones. Matthew reminds us that faith is about trusting the God who is constantly pursuing and loving us.” – Candace Cameron Bure

West’s current single “Me On Your Mind” is his most recent number one song, spending 6 weeks atop the Mediabase Christian Airplay and 5 weeks topping Billboard Christian Airplay Chart. It marks West’s 25th number one song an artist and songwriter combined. The “well-rounded songwriter” (Billboard), is also set to take the stage at the Nashville Songwriter Awards (NSAI) on September 20 and is among the top nominee earners for the upcoming GMA Dove Awards. The reigning ASCAP Christian Songwriter of the Year with several RIAA Gold-certified and Platinum singles, can also be heard on “The Matthew West Podcast”. West will be bringing his stories and music to life on the road for AN EVENING AT THE STORY HOUSE WITH MATTHEW WEST tour this Fall.
