New Brand Spotlight: Analog

new brand spotlight, analog, analog beanies, analog accessories, skate, surf, snowboarding

In 2001, Analog was born in a style lab with the primary goal of creating unique designs that fell outside the lines of traditionalism. With an eclectic mix of team riders, styles, and inspirations, Analog approached snowboarding with fearlessness. This passion paved the way for Analog to make its mark on year-round apparel and accessories in 2003, starting with skate and moving into surf shortly thereafter.

In November of 2012, Analog transitioned back to a snowboard-specific brand and has continued to Liberate, Unify, Mobilize, and Resolve. Free from the tides of conformity, they remain dedicated to delivering a creative voice of expression. Transformed into a community driven against the predictable, Analog is committed to progressing the individualistic and fearless thread that binds them together as “Snowboarding".

Content Has No Limits!

Content’s fall 2013 Olympics last week at the beautiful Springs Preserve.  Following tradition, the department was divided into six teams distinguished by color.  Each team came up with their name and was encouraged to show team spirit by representing their color.  Competing this year were The Hornets, Chicks with Tricks, Blue Steel, Purple Haze, Orange is the New Black, and The Lone Pink Rangers.

The fun-filled event started off with four Minute-to-Win-It games: Suck It Up, Cookie Face, Speed Eraser, and the hilarious Junk in the Trunk.  The latter involved contestants shaking ping pong balls out of empty tissue boxes that were tied around their rears.  Up next was an intense round of trivia with questions from five different categories.  Isn’t it funny how people are always convinced that their buzzers don’t work?  The competition wrapped up with a photo scavenger hunt.  Teams were given clues to various attractions throughout the Springs Preserve and a time limit to find as many of those as possible.

The day wound down with socializing over a delicious catered meal, including sandwiches & wraps, pasta salad, potato salad, chips, cookies, and assorted beverages.  Small prizes were awarded for Best Team Name (Blue Steel) and Best Use of Team Color (Chicks with Tricks).  Fabulous prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place overall winning teams at Content’s next department meeting October 1st.  Until then, the judges are keeping those scores under wraps.  Although, they may or may not be accepting bribes…

@Zappos_Service Answers Your Most Pressing Questions---Right Now!

Did you know that you can tweet Zappos Customer Service anytime, any day of the week and they’ll respond in minutes? If you not, let me introduce you to “@Zappos_Service” -- your exclusive resource for getting questions answered…right now.

When it comes to providing exceptional customer service, Zappos has long been recognized as an innovator (CEO Tony Hsieh literally wrote a book on the topic).

So, it makes sense that they lead the pack when it comes to serving customers on social media. They respond literally 100 percent of the time when customers send them questions on Twitter, far superior to the 14 percent response rate my company reported in a recent social customer service study. Zappos doesn’t just respond either. They start conversations and they scour the Twitterverse for opportunities to surprise and delight Zappos customers in need.

For example, this customer that was having trouble finding a pair of sneakers he liked. Luckily, the @Zappos_Service team was there to the rescue.

Recently, I had a chance to catch up with @Zappos_Service crew to find out exactly how they provide exceptional customer service in the social media context. Here’s what they had to say:

Does the @Zappos_Service team literally respond 24/7?

ZS: Just like our contact center, we are manning the @Zappos_Service twitter account 24/7. Our graveyard team takes care of responses in the wee hours of the morning. So we’re here to help, whether it’s a 3 a.m. fashion emergency, or a lunchtime shopping break.

Do you respond to questions that mention Zappos, regardless of whether they use the full @Zappos_Service handle?

ZS: We respond to anyone that mentions Zappos (and a few misspelled variations just in case, as well), as long as their account is public so that we can see the tweet. It can be a question about an order, a comment on an item they found on the site, a news article with our name mentioned, or even if they are just bored and want to have conversation!

What other tactics do you use to keep the experience awesome for your Twitter-azzi?

ZS: We try to showcase our team’s personalities, so we encourage back and forth between them and our Twitter friends about anything at all. Creating Fun & a Little Weirdness is Core Value #3, and we get a lot of opportunity to do this on Twitter. The team normally introduces themselves at the start of their block of time working Twitter, and will try to engage folks somehow. This could be anything from asking who’s excited about football starting to asking opinions on the greatest Prince song of all time.

Give @Zappos_Service a ring--they’re here to help day or night, rain or shine!

New Brand Spotlight: T3 Gear

T3 Gear, T3 Gear Bags, T3 Gear backpacks, T3 Gear messenger bags, new brand spotlight, durable backpacks, durable bags, men's bags, women's bags, rugged backpacks, rugged bagsNothing is more authentic than T3 Gear. As former Navy SEALs, T3 designs gear to function in the most extreme and destructive saltwater environments. And no other gear manufacturer has their perspective or their access—T3’s headquarters is on the famed Navy SEAL base in Coronado, California.

It all started when T3 had the good fortune to take over a former taco shop on the Coronado base. Everything they design is guided by their close connection to active duty SEAL operators. And every piece of their gear is thoroughly tested in the field.

While their roots are in the SEAL teams, their gear has evolved into a line of inventive products for everyday adventurers. Gear designed with the creativity and durability a special operator requires is now available to the everyday explorer.

All T3 Products—which feature a lifetime warranty—are made in the USA. They do this so T3 has the closest possible connection between SEAL input and gear production.
