2009: The Year of Additions for Customer Magnetism

As another year comes to a close, it’s hard not to get nostalgic. 2009 has been a year of growth for Customer Magnetism, and before jumping ahead into 2010 and all the glory it’s sure to bring, let’s take a look back at the year we haven’t quite left behind yet.

Whether it’s new staff, office space, or family members, the CM team has undeniably grown this year. If you follow our blog, you might have read about our office expansion, made necessary by the addition of ten new employees over the course of the year. Similarly, if you follow us on Twitter, you might have also seen pictures of our newest addition, making the office 76% cuter on a daily basis.

We’re also proud to brag about another addition this year: our mobile SEO initiative. With mobile being such a hot topic in 2009, we’re excited to move forward with our mobile SEO services and development, helping clients optimize in an increasingly mobile market.

Adding to the countless hours of content on YouTube, we also started providing short videos on terrible SEO ideas in the spirit of making SEO a little more accessible and hopefully a little more humorous. Our fearless President, Aaron, also started a YouTube channel for his favorite Friday tradition. Instead of providing SEO instruction, however, these videos teach a healthy fear of your boss.

With all of the great things that came our way, and all joking aside, Customer Magnetism also felt that it was crucial that we give back to our community this year. While we work with clients all over the country, we’ve found that it’s really imperative to be present not only online, but locally as well. In helping out the local chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the Southeastern Virginia Foodbank, we strived to remember that there is plenty we can do to help those in need right in our area.

So onward we move into 2010.

And if nothing else, at least we know that some day our children’s children will be able to chronicle our work-days through the blogs and tweets we leave behind. . .
