For Immediate Release

Metro Orlando, FL – August 2, 2018 – Ardynn Media Group and Ardynn Publishing introduces their new National Food and Lifestyle Brand, Simply Ardynn and broadens it’s industry scope beyond the Real Estate and News spheres.  For the past 10 years, Ardynn Media Grouop has focused on the consulting side of business and worked with some of Real Estates biggest brands to strengthen their position within the industry.  They have also been a leader in social media and online branding.  Michael D. Harris-Arzon, President and Publisher of the Ardynn Media Group and Ardynn Publishing, has been an industry leader and influencer that has garnered him the distinction of being named Top 25 Online Branding Experts for 2018 by the WSJ.

As this is the 10th anniversary of the Ardynn Media Group, a decision was made to celebrate such a milestone with the creation of a suite of products that were completely developed in house, instead of recommending other companies products and services, as had been the companies previous business model.  “Having a background in publishing, design and content management gives us a chance to create products that we have complete control over.  This also means that we control the revenue streams and forecast a significant increase to the companies bottom line.”  says Michael Harris-Arzon, President of the Ardynn Media Group.  “Moving into a new consumer sphere, the Food and Lifestyle space, just made sense.  Combining our passion with product development and brand management is the golden ticket”

Simply Ardynn aims to target professionals as they strive to balance their professional and family lives.  We started last year with the creation of The Simplistic Professional, our personal, in-depth advice column that covers everything from business, to being a father and everything in between.  Last week we launched our new online magazine SimplyArdynn.com, “Exquisitely Rustic, Interactive Food Experiences For Professionals.”  Besides delivering original recipes and cooking advice from The Simplistic Professional, Simply Ardynn offers Cooking Tips, Kitchen Basics, The Pantry, Simply Kids (where kids teach kids to cook), Celebratory Menus (27 Specially Designed Menus for every holiday and life event), Kitchen Basics, Simply Entertaining and more.

The Simply Ardynn brand is so much more than on online magazine.  In the coming months you will see a suite of cookbooks published via Apple’s iBooks, Amazon and Ardynn Publishing, an Interactive Cooking App that will be available via iTunes, an online store called the House of Ardynn that will sell all of our cookbooks, a custom line of linens for the kitchen and dining room, a line of Table Jewelry, a full range of kitchen tools and utensils, grocery delivery straight to your front door (in every major market) and a host of product lines to meet your dining and entertaining needs.  The House of Ardynn will be a complete online mall to meet every kitchen, dining and entertaining need.

In the spring of 2019 Simply Ardynn launches a complete cooking and entertaining video streaming service via our partnership with YouTube, and a subscription magazine service that will offer specialized content, weekly live, video conferences with audience participation, online chat and more.  We also intend to capitalize on social media branding and ad revenue streams to balance out the bottom line.

Simply Ardynn has been years in the making. Coming from the most humble of beginnings where food meant comfort… through the rise of our professional and social lives, Michael’s passion for cooking and food has long been a huge part of our lives.”  says Walter Arzon, SVP of Sale for Ardynn Media Group.  “But this is so much more than a Food and Lifestyle Brand, it is a family business where every member of the family is involved.  Our three kids are each involved in some way, whether it is hosting the Simply Kids Video series or designing a line of Table Jewelry, it is a family affair.” says Michael Harris-Arzon.

Ardynn Publishing, a wholly owned division of the Ardynn Media Group, is the digital content distribution arm of the real estate industry’s premier social relations firm.  All media requests, general inquiries and press release submissions may be directed to Michael D.

Ardynn Media Group to Debut Interactive Cooking App and Addition to Brand Lineup

Simply Ardynn’s Mexican Pork Salad
This amazing Mexican Pork Salad has long been one of our family’s mainstay dishes.  A few years ago, we were sitting down to dinner and our youngest daughter Avril insisted that I needed to write a cookbook so she would have all of my recipes when she was older.  Immediately, the other two kids were encouraging me to write a cookbook as well.  I don’t know what other families are like when comes to the kids getting an idea in there head, but mine refused to give up on the subject.  I think what really got my attention was when our eldest daughter, Onyx, mentioned the idea again and reminded me that I already make a living from writing….so why not create a new brand for the company.


Thus with vast amounts of encouragement, Simply Ardynn was born.  Like many projects and ideas Simply Ardynn seemed to evolve and grow with a mind of its own.  From the initial thought of a traditional cookbook to a subscription based vlog to what is now a fully interactive cooking app.  With such a long history in publishing, I knew that many people no longer bought physical books and each time I searched iBooks, Amazon or the App Store (in order to do my competitor analysis) I saw a new type of product being released.  This started to worry me, until I realized that no only is there always room for competition, but that having multiple revenue lines, product extensions and user options available would set us apart from the pack.

 The core belief behind Simply Ardynn is that no matter how busy you are as a professional or how limitied your knowledge is in the kitchen, you can create amazing food experiences that bring family and friends together.  All the while creating memories that will last beyond your lifetime, but trickle down through your kids and grandkids. 

Below,  you will notice the ingredient list for our Mexican Pork Salad Recipe.  Being that it was the reason for this new venture, it seemed appropriate that it be the first recipe I shared as we start that pre-promotional aspects our the Simply Ardynn launch.  Currently, we are set to launch on Ardynn Media Groups 10th Anniversary, February 11th, 2018.  So stay tuned as we embark on this exciting journey.  The closer we get to launch date, the more events will be scheduled and a few contest giveaways even are planned.

I hope you will stay tuned and follow us as we head into a new part of our lives.

ArdynnMG and The Simplistic Professional Set To Release First eProduct Line

With more than two decades of business expertise under his belt, Michael Harris-Arzon President of the Ardynn Media Group and Ardynn Publishing, has made the bold decision to expand the companys brand efforts beyond the realm of consultancy and news outlets. 

“Entering into the eCommerce and App Technology space has been a long awaited dream.  With the ever changing business landscape, it took us a while to compare business models, perform competitor analysis and create a product that doesn’t become irrelevant before it has even launched. The later is a problem that so many tech based products face in the hyper paced retail space” says Walter Arzon of ArdynnMG (Media Group).

Many of you have noticed the changes that have taken place over the past few years with ArdynnMG and the addition of our Dadologist (Daddy Blog) and The Simplistic Professional (General Business and Life Advice Series).  Transitioning to a general consumer appeal versus real estate professionals only way of conducting business has increased our online following 10 fold.  With over 30 million 1st level readers/followers it’s time to roun out our news and advice to meet all of a professionals needs.  The way we have excised to do this is by showing them how to include exquisite food experiences into their daily lives.  

Enter our newest addition to the Ardynn Brand Lineup….. Simply Ardynn, creating Exquisitely Rustic, Interactive Food Experiences for professionals and their families.
