Attorney and Media Consultant Andrew Rossow Uses Online Reputation Management to Help Young Hollywood




Today’s content creators have had to fight an uphill battle for maintaining relevance in their respective industries. Since TikTok has emerged as arguably the top content creation platform, age has certainly become a major divider in the influencer space, with millennials and Gen-Z looking to how these young kids are able to captivate their communities instantaneously and impactfully.

But TikTok aside, with everyone online and taking to new video streaming platforms like Clubhouse and Lunchclub, among others, the level of creativity required to “be seen” is exponentially more difficult, compared to what it would have been just a year ago.

Andrew Rossow, a media consultant in Saint Petersburg, Florida officially launched AR Media Consulting, which helps provide visibility to his fellow demographic of young entrepreneurs, academics, and public figures from a wide array of industries. Online reputation management, or ORM, is a necessary component to any brand, small or large. “We all have a story to tell and to do that, requires a constant nurturing of our personal brand, and an understanding of how SEO or search engine optimization works.”

Rossow, 31 is also a licensed attorney, helping clients throughout the State of Ohio navigate through and overcome the dangers the opioid crisis has brought, specifically to the Montgomery County area. Additionally, he teaches as an adjunct cyberspace law professor at The University of Dayton, his alma mater.

Where AR Media excels, according to the millennial CEO, is the vast professional network Rossow has built over the years. “Networking is a skill that simply can’t be taught, and it never ceases to amaze me how lacking our generation is when it comes to making connections,” Rossow says.

“What I’ve been able to do over the years, is develop my own web of professional relationships, built upon trust, cadence, and loyalty. I’m a walking rolodex and that’s value you can’t buy.”

From California and Texas, to Florida, Chicago, and New York, AR Media sees no bounds, having expanded to international markets, including but not limited to Russia, China, Germany, and Belarus. While only recently incorporating AR Media, Rossow has been hard at work since 2016, conducting business purely by word of mouth.

He has worked with a number of high-profile individuals, including but not limited to Kevin Harrington, the original ‘shark’ on ABC’s Shark Tank and founder of the “As Seen On TV” infomercial line, Ritesh Patel, CEO and co-founder of The Ticket Fairy, Nashville’s Jesslee (S14 The Voice), actor Jason Gann (Wilfred on FX), EDM DJ Gareth Emery, Hollywood product agent, Lorenzo Rusin, Billy Ray Cyrus, John Rich of Big & Rich, David McElroy, Pagentri, among others.

But it’s not just Hollywood talent and Silicon Valley’s brightest that Rossow works with, tailoring his expertise to those more unconventional clients–the everyday entrepreneur and academic, including college students, photographers, and data scientists.

“Regardless of the size of your investment portfolio, everyone has a story to tell, and today’s media landscape has made it increasingly difficult for young entrepreneurs to be heard,” Rossow told Big Time Daily. “Social media platforms have made ‘visibility’ even more challenging, unless you are prepared to invest hundreds and potentially thousands of dollars into an Ad Manager.”

The young entrepreneur has appeared on national platforms like Cheddar TV, WFAA ABC, Fox4, and CBS in Dallas. He has also regularly appeared on Dayton’s ABC, FOX, and NBC affiliate networks for his unique insight into trending cybersecurity topics.

“It’s time for everyone to be heard, regardless of the medium,” Rossow emphasized. “My passion is to help jumpstart the careers of those who are inspired to do good for their communities. Whether you are a graduate student in law or medicine, or a rising musician, there’s a story to be told, and you have every right to share it with your followers.”

The problem, according to Rossow, is that everyone is now online and wanting to take their e-commerce and/or personal brands to the next level.

“It’s why we see so many copycats for reputable thought leaders like Gary Vee, Grant Cardone, The Millionaire_Mentor, and Dillon Kivo. These are individuals who understand both the informative and aesthetic aspects of branding. And it’s clearly working. But there are always smaller gaps to fill, left behind by individuals of this caliber, because they’re focused on the bigger picture. AR Media serves to fill in the missing piece to that puzzle, providing a solid branding management team.”

Part of AR Media’s mission is to also teach good digital hygiene to clients as well as other users online. Rossow created #CYBERBYTE, a trademarked anti bullying movement that encourages folks to record short PSAs about standing up against online bullying to their own community of followers.

“By working with others who share in that vision like JessLee’s STRONG program and Bubba Almony’s Bodyguards Against Bullying, we are able to capitalize off one another’s resources to help provide a well-rounded program for those brands focused on community impact.” Taking #CYBERBYTE to the next level, Rossow made an even bigger move earlier this summer, announcing that he was joining forces with TV actor Mark Pellegrino (13 Reasons Why, Supernatural, Being Human, Dexter, Lost) to co-launch The Guardian Project, a multi-tiered attack on the bullying epidemic.

Both Pellegrino and Rossow, who share eerily similar stories with their own personal experiences with bullying, successfully funded their Kickstarter which will go to helping build out the first tier of the project: a docuseries.

Back in May, Rossow released a heart-warming revelation on Thrive Global that his drive for fighting against online-bullying stems from a traumatic experience at a summer camp when he was 13-years-old, where he was sexually assaulted by several members (and counselors) from his cabin. AboveTheLaw’s Brian Cuban, brother to Mark Cuban, spoke with Rossow about how today’s biggest issues involving bullying, #MeToo, and others impact the legal landscape.

“I don’t want anyone to ever feel the isolation and darkness I felt for all those years,” the young attorney explains. “Thankfully with mentors and friends like Brian, I’ve been able to address those demons over the years and help others who are afraid to speak out.”

The two anti-bullying activists recently appeared on Cheddar TV, a millennial news network which runs off the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Rossow says that he has been blessed to be one of few who has thrived throughout the pandemic, aiding public relations agencies with their own clients, due to the decrease in resources, as well as film production studios and cannatech startups.

Designing Secure Commercial Spaces Without Compromising Aesthetics




In the realm of commercial design, security and aesthetics often seem like opposing forces. Business owners and designers alike grapple with the challenge of creating spaces that not only captivate and inspire but also ensure the safety and security of assets and occupants. The good news is that integrating security features into commercial spaces without sacrificing visual appeal is entirely achievable. This blog post will delve into innovative design strategies that harmonise security with aesthetics, including a look at the best deadlocks for front doors in Australia, ensuring your commercial space is both beautiful and fortified.

Embracing Technology for Seamless Security

Modern technology offers a plethora of options for discreet yet effective security measures. For instance, advanced surveillance systems can be integrated into the architectural design in a way that they blend seamlessly with the environment. Smart locks and biometric access controls offer robust security without the clunky hardware, maintaining a sleek and modern aesthetic. Implementing these technologies not only elevates the security level of your commercial space but does so without disrupting its design flow.

Strategic Use of Materials and Design Elements

The choice of materials and design elements plays a crucial role in balancing security and aesthetics. High-strength materials such as tempered or laminated glass, for example, offer excellent security without compromising on the visual openness that glass provides. Similarly, incorporating natural barriers like decorative boulders or planters can serve as subtle physical deterrents while enhancing the space’s visual appeal.

Lighting: A Dual-Purpose Tool

Lighting is another powerful tool that serves both aesthetic and security purposes. Well-planned lighting can highlight architectural features and create a welcoming atmosphere while ensuring visibility and deterring unauthorised access after hours. Motion-sensor lighting, in particular, can be a discreet addition that enhances security without detracting from the design.

The Role of Deadlocks in Aesthetic Security

A critical aspect of securing any commercial space is the choice of locks, especially for front doors which are the primary entry and exit points. Deadlocks offer a high level of security, making them an essential feature for commercial spaces. However, selecting the right deadlock doesn’t mean you have to settle for a utilitarian look. Today, the market offers a variety of deadlock designs that complement any aesthetic, from modern minimalist to classic elegance. For those in Australia, choosing the best deadlocks for front doors involves considering both the security features and how the lock’s design integrates with your commercial space’s overall look.

Collaboration Between Security Experts and Designers

Achieving a balance between security and aesthetics often requires a collaborative approach. Security experts and interior designers need to work hand in hand from the early stages of the design process. This collaboration ensures that security measures are not afterthoughts but are integrated into the design in a way that complements the space’s aesthetic appeal.

Ready to get started?

Designing secure commercial spaces without compromising aesthetics is not only possible but essential in today’s world. Remember, the goal is to integrate security seamlessly into the design, enhancing the user experience and ensuring peace of mind for both business owners and visitors. With thoughtful planning and collaboration, your commercial space can be a testament to the harmony that can exist between security and aesthetics.
