A happy 2011 to you, hope your holidays were enjoyable and refreshing. A quick thank you and update to all who participated in our 2010 Giveaway promotion from eight90. Overall I had a good time with it, found it successful for how fast it came together and learned a bit about both my clients and promotions in general. I imagine we’ll do it or something similar again in 2011.
As a reminder, we attempted three different campaigns:
The first being for current/past clients only. If we had worked together in some form or fashion, you were automatically included.
The second was a “spread the word” type campaign; whether I knew you or not, if you were willing to spread the word about my services or the campaign, you were included.
And finally – the one I am the most excited about – was our water campaign. We set up a campaign with the organization charity:water to allow both you and I the opportunity to give back. The original goal was set for $250 which was reached in less than 8 hours of kicking off. I decided that since we reached it so quickly, I would raise the goal to make sure all had the opportunity to give. The $500 mark was met within a few days so I raised it once more to $750. In total we raised $525, served 26 people with clean water and combined with tens-of-thousands of others to collect just under $6 million dollars this holiday season.
I originally thought about doing a general “design” type gift post but it eventually evolved into what you see here, art for your walls. Dress up your office, bedroom or any other empty wall space with some of these great pieces.
Didn’t want the ladies to feel completely left out this year so I enlisted the help of a fashonista and friend of mine to put a little something together for my female readers. She gets the chance to have fun and play Internet dress up and I get the chance to act like I don’t know anything about women’s fashion. Men, don’t just glaze over, these are last minute ideas for you.
Unfortunately, by the time of posting, most of her picks are sold out.
