NOVEMBER2013

Hello there!

It’s that time of year, and there’s a ton to be thankful for! Besides the power of Pinterest during the holidays, Google’s Winter Wonderlabs, and the ease of setting up Facebook ad campaigns (thanks to our step-by-step tutorial), we’re especially excited to share the fact that we successfully reached our goal of feeding 100 families in Hampton Roads this Thanksgiving as a part of ForKids’ local food drive! Being the fifth year we’ve participated in their food drive, we couldn’t be happier to have doubled the number of meals we donated last year. We’re also pretty thankful that there’s only one week of Movember (mustache November) left so we can all look our male co-workers in the face again.

As always, thanks for reading . . . and ENJOY!

Google’s Winter Wonderlabs Open in Six Major US Cities As the holiday season nips at our heels (Santa arrives in 35 days . . . *squee*!), Google has opened six holiday showrooms around select major U.S. cities including New York, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Chicago, and Washington DC. The pop-up showrooms, known as Winter Wonderlabs, will feature Google’s line of tech gadgets like Nexus tablets, Chromebooks, Chromecast, Google Play, and hey, maybe they’ve even got a few tricks up their tech giant sleeves . . . like a huge snow globe you can play in while simultaneously taking slow-mo video . . .

The Power (and Value) of Holiday Pinning

The Power (and Value) of Holiday Pinning It’s easy to cringe at early holiday commercials, Christmas music playing already in department stores, or wreaths being hung on streetlights around town. The day after Halloween just feels a little early. However, as we get further into November, now is exactly the right time to plan your social campaign for the holidays.

According to Experian Marketing Services, consumers spent more than 27% of their total time online during Q4 on social networking apps in 2012. ComScore reported 30% of all retail e-commerce consumer spending took place in the same time period . . .

CM Fights the Good Fight: Movember

CM Fights the Good Fight: Movember The month of November has transformed into Movember, a month in which men around the world break out their razors, shave off all of the facial hair and then work to grow out their best moustache. All of this moustache mania is to raise awareness for men’s health. This is the first year that Customer Magnetism is participating in Movember, and everyone was eager to shave off their facial hair and start fresh on November 1st. Even the Mo’ Sistas were excited to rock fake moustaches to take some team photos . . .

Feeding 100 Families in Hampton Roads this Thanksgiving

Feeding 100 Families in Hampton Roads this Thanksgiving Over the past few years, we here at Customer Magnetism have collected items for the annual ForKids Thanksgiving food drive, helping 50 families enjoying a hot meal on the holiday each year.

This year, we set a lofty goal of 100 meals–double the amount from previous years–and are encouraging fellow business owners and individuals to join us in this cause! Because it’s easy for the small non-profits in our backyard to get overlooked, we think it’s important to give back to our local community and ForKids is definitely . . .
