In this week’s Goodworks column, AdAge focuses on our very own MKTG 4 Good initiative, looking at how a fundraiser to benefit earthquake victims in Haiti soon developed into a company-wide mission to leverage agency expertise in the service of the community. Good works, indeed!

Pop-ups Shape Up

A piece in this week’s Wall Street Journal takes a look at how pop-ups are growing from occasional marketing tools to sustainable business models. A great example is right here in MKTG INC New York’s basement: Chelsea Market, which will host pop-up cycling studio KiwiSweat through the end of October. KiwiSweat is a pop-up-only gym that temporarily inhabits a series of surprising NYC locations, providing fitness lovers with new and unique workouts every few months. The concept taps the “surprise” allure of the typical pop-up to make daily workouts more exciting, and it all happens in unexpected locations like city rooftops, MoMA and, yes, foodie mecca Chelsea Market. Bon workout!
