eBay Advertising: This summer, the Karbo Com team scored a huge contributed article win for advertising technology client eBay Advertising in a top advertising outlet. In his article, How Technology Is Redefining Native Advertising for Brands, Salim Tarazi, director of U.S. Ad Operations at eBay Advertising, explores how the advancements in mobile devices, apps, videos and social media has prompted many digital advertisers to shift their native ad strategies. This was a fantastic opportunity to position the company as a thought leader within the ad tech space by getting in front of Adweek’s estimated 9,373,715 unique monthly visitors. Most recently, executives from the eBay Advertising team also attended the renowned Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in France, where they engaged in discussions with the industry’s most influential innovators.

Karbo Com Highlights
Karbo Com closed out the first half of 2017 with a successful trade show and media wins for all clients. This quarter, Karbo Com supported TDK at the Sensors Expo in San Jose, helped host a VIP press event with Scott McNealy for RTI and generated media buzz around Vineti’s first cloud-based software platform to accelerate cancer cure process and delivery (see coverage above).
The agency also found time to have some fun of their own, closing the office early to cheer on the Golden State Warriors to another NBA Championship, opening the KC Spa for employees to use at the office and hosting bi-monthly “tea time” on Thursday afternoons, complete with homemade snacks and desserts from the culinary-gifted members of the team.
This was also an exciting quarter for team growth and promotions. Emily Carey was promoted to Senior Account Manager and Kendal Pektas was promoted to Account Executive (pictured below). We also welcomed our new summer intern, Alyssa Espiritu.

Alyssa Espiritu, Intern
Alyssa is currently studying at Boston University, pursuing a public relations major with a computer science minor. She will be graduating Fall 2018. Alyssa is the newest member of the Karbo Com team, joining us as a professional intern this summer.
Q: Why did you choose to study public relations?
A: I was first introduced to public relations when I watched the reality TV show, The City, on MTV. I was a 10-year-old girl inspired by Kelly Cutrone and her intense PR team. Of course, PR is nothing like how it was depicted on TV, but somehow I was still interested in the industry. In high school, I found a passion for writing, journalism, social media, digital media and creative content. I decided to put my strengths and interests together and realized that PR was meant for me.
Q: What about technology is so interesting to you?
A: What I find most interesting about the technology industry, is there is always something new. I also find nostalgic conversations so entertaining. I’m still very young, but my friends and I love to joke around about how technology is so advanced now. For example, we would talk about how “difficult” it was to communicate on the Nokia flip phone or how every teenage girl just had to have the Samsung Sidekick. My mother will interrupt the conversation and say I shouldn’t complain because she had to mail letters or use pagers. Simple and humorous conversations like this is what makes technology so fun and interesting. There will always be something new, and the conversations will just keep going.
Q: What was the last book you read?
A: #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso.
Q: Tell us something we wouldn’t know about you.
A: I lived in Manila, Philippines for seven years!
