The time finally came that we outgrew our previous office space. In just two short years we’ve grown to 21 employees and with another 10 expected by early fall we knew we had to make a move. Late last week we took over our new space and we’re so excited to share the news! We even created a fun, sharable, embeddable “Infowidget” to share with all our fans that shows an interactive walk-through of our key company highlights over the past 12 months. Check it out here!
We wanted to share a great post on AdAge Digital from Judy Shapiro, the Chief Brand Strategist at CloudLinux. In “Why ‘Commerce’ Shouldn’t Be a Dirty Word in Tech Marketing” Judy explores social commerce and, how in it’s current state, the biggest piece missing is the sale: “Why does it seem like “cool” marketing technology and “commerce” are mutually exclusive?”
She makes several really great points in her post – we of course had to highlight her mention of BigDoor:
“Some of the cleverest tech companies are recognizing the huge market potential of merging local, mobile and social to drive commerce……take the example of a company called BigDoor. This is a tech company that creates mini toolbars based on gaming theory so every action lets visitors earn points redeemable for products. It’s the first toolbar I have seen that drives commerce forward (double hooray since most mini toolbars just enhance the share function).”
Thanks to Judy for the mention! You can check out more on her blog here.
We’re happy to announce the BigDoor MiniBar, a simple way to add gamification to your site to promote user engagement with points, badges and leaderboards. It also includes Facebook Connect to make it that much easier for your users to start participating in your program.
