Welcome to the (Social Media) Revolution
Tuesday, January 17 – Hot Diggity Dog
On Tuesday, I traveled down to Lynchburg, my hometown, for a couple of client meetings. I visited with Mike Jones, Assistant VP of Communications for Lynchburg College. The campus looks amazing and the new Drysdale Student Center is very impressive. One of the highlights of traveling to Lynchburg is bringing back a box full of the world’s best chili dogs from Moore’s Country Store.
Meanwhile back in Richmond, Account Executive Meredith Mason was busy dropping off tickets for the Virginia Home Show. She’s not excited about being stuck in a cast for three more weeks, but she was thrilled that DJ King Tutt from KISS FM and Paris Nicole from iPower 92.1 signed her cast while she was there.
Wednesday, January 18 –Lunch & Learn
A couple of times a month, we have Lunch & Learns where we bring in partners to drop knowledge bombs — usually over pizza. On Wednesday, we were treated to Chicken Fiesta and Marketing Buddah Co-Founder Jason Moreau, who brought us up to speed on some exciting new targeting techniques for online ads and rich media formats for Facebook. Really cool stuff… can’t wait to put some of these ideas in place for clients.
Thursday, January 19 – Loooong Day
Thursday was jam-packed; starting at a 7:30 a.m. meeting at the Commonwealth Club and wrapping up with a JV basketball game. (Jack’s team, the Manchester JV Lancers crushed the Cosby Titans 60-28.) In between all the meetings, I was able to grab lunch with Scott Gunn from American Family Care. AFC now has more than 160 urgent care centers in the U.S., and Scott just opened one in Midlothian six weeks ago. I really enjoyed learning more about the company, and want to thank super-banker Max Morehead from Village Bank for making the introduction. Scott is also looking to meet more people in the area since he just moved here from Roanoke. Click here to connect with Scott.
The Auxo Medical team dropped by yesterday to “get the keys” to their shiny new website. We were thrilled to host President Jay Crabtree, Sales Director Tanner Seese, and Marketing & Sales Specialist Jalecia Walker as they learned about the new features and content management system behind the all-new www.AuxoMedical.com. Click the link, check out the site, and let us know what you think.
Friday, January 20 – It’s Showtime
In between working on projects, the Madison+Main-iacs keep sneaking peeks at television screens throughout the office… some are looking at the Inauguration, but most of us are screening CBS6, WRIC-TV 8, NBC12, and various Comcast Spotlight stations to see if we can spot the new TV ad we’re running for the Virginia Home Show. The big show comes to Meadow Event Parknext Saturday, and I’m going to give $1 off admission to every single reader of the Weekly Report. Why? Because I love you. Get your tickets today!
