Atlanta Let The Dogs Out

with one comment

As one of the many perks that makes our office a Top Workplace in Atlanta, we are proud to have an “open dog policy” every business day! And while we enjoy having a dog or two around the office during the average workday, we wanted to celebrate national Take Your Dog To Work Day by inviting all of our 4-legged friends for a day of treats, play, and cake.

On Thursday June 23rd, we hosted our very first annual MKTG Dog Day where we had 14 dogs come to hangout all day. In our warehouse we fenced off their own off-leash play area while every dog went home with special gifts including an MKTG sports jersey! Check out some of the photos because who doesn’t love tons of photos of dogs in the office?

Special thanks to Paisley, Toro, Pippy, Cocoa, Jackson, Clover, Boomer, Yoda, Guinness, Daisy, Ivy, Cooper, Samson, Ginger, and Ace for bringing their positive attitudes to MKTG Atlanta!

with 2 comments

MKTG ATL Top Workplaces

It is with great pleasure that we announce that we have once again been named as a Top Workplace in Atlanta!!! This designation is earned through employee surveys and employee surveys alone so it is a true testament to our rewarding work and our fun agency culture.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be named one of Atlanta’s top workplace for the 2nd year in a row”, says Peter Pearce, GM of MKTG Atlanta. “Given this award is based on employee sentiment, we’re very proud that the work environment we’ve created, and the values we live everyday have delivered against our goal to be a great place to go to work!”

Thanks [again] to the Atlanta Journal Constitution for recognizing MKTG as a Top Workplace for the second year in a row. We couldn’t agree more!

The Newest Trend in Social Commerce – Cash Mobbing

without comments

How much do your customers love and value you and your brand?
In today’s economy, small businesses are challenged every day for survival, with over 50% of small businesses failing in the first five years.  But satisfied customers have joined a new social commerce trend called cash mobbing that is designed to help small businesses when they need it the most.
Wikipedia defines a cash mob as “a group of people who assemble at a local business to buy items.  The purpose of these mobs is to support both the local businesses and the overall community.”  Cash mobs allow customers to act collectively and help out their favorite local businesses with one-day boosts in revenue that help them stay afloat during these challenging times.
Why would customers do this?  Loyalty.  Businesses that provide customers with great product and excellent customer servicecreate happy customers.And, happy customers are loyal customers who are willing to help you out in times of need regardless of whether any discount is provided.
With small businesses being the lifeblood of the US economy, American Express, the poster child pioneer for social commerce, has jumped on this trend with their “Small Business Saturday” cashmobs.   Cardholders are given a $25 credit when they use the card at small retailers on a specific Saturdays.  While this heightened social consciousness may be a fad born from tough times, the opportunities for other brands (like Groupon) to build on Amex’s initiative could be huge.
Would your customer’s cash mob for you?  If you’re not sure, you may want to check with your most loyal customers to see how they’re feeling about you these days. The success of your business and your brand may soon depend on it.Photo Credit:

AdWeek’s Chat with Charlie

Looks like the press just can’t get enough of our own Charlie Horsey. When industry rag AdWeek came by our New York headquarters a few weeks back, they stopped by the MKTG INC CEO’s office for an unscripted tete-a-tete. What’d those bigwigs talk about behind closed doors? Normally we’d have no idea, but this time the whole thing was caught on video so we know pretty much everything. Conversation topics ranged from how to define experiential marketing to how to structure a campaign to the newest tech gadget currently poised to take over the world. The AdWeek folks even got some expert advice on the best place to grab a drink in NY. (Hint: It’s very, very close to where this reporter is sitting right now. In a moment it might be even closer.) Have a look and a listen here.

Office Space

Our Office

The New York Egotist was kind enough to post a short piece about our New York office and all the cool things inside of it. We’re talking large blocks of inspirational text (see above), video game stations, and a fully stocked in-house bar. Like W.C. Fields said, “There are only two real ways to get ahead – sell liquor or drink it.” At MKTG INC, we do both. Occasionally at the same time.

To see more photos of our workplace digs, head over here.

ONE PERSON’S POWERPOINT…

Trendy: You can track the 30-year rise-and-fall of the price of silver and be fashionable at the same time.

… Is another person’s treasure. Or so thinks planner Lisa Prince from Wieden + Kennedy’s London office who saw the beauty in her presentations. Inspired by infographics, Prince teamed up with co-worker, art director Nicholla Longley and jewelry maker Hannah Havana to create a line of jewelry backed by Wieden. Each piece in the launch-line of necklaces represents the ups-and-downs of commodities prices. No word as to whether The Jewelry Plot will be W&K’s only foray into the product realm.

This is Plot
